A VISIT TO STATEN ISLAND
A Uniquely Different
New York Experience

The southern most destination in New York State, Staten Island is home to almost 1/2 million residents. Referred to as the borough of parks, it has miles of beaches along its eastern shore and incredible beautiful views of New York Harbor and Raritan Bay. Four bridges connect the Island to New Jersey (Bayonne, Goethals and Outerbridge Crossing) and Brooklyn (Verrazano-Narrows, the longest suspension bridge in the US).

The Staten Island Ferry, a commuter ferry with 24/7 scheduled runs is world famous. Thousands of visitors ride the ferry to enjoy the views of New York Harbor, including the Statue of Liberty, Ellis and Governors Islands, the Manhattan and Brooklyn skylines and the three East River Bridges. After the ferry ride.

Staten Island a New York Treasure

STATEN ISLAND NEIGHBORHOODS

A tradition in most urban areas is to identify the neighborhood in which you live. In Staten island, the communities are traditionally divided into four geographic SHORE locales - North, South, East and West. Typically, the more densely populated is the North Shore, a short walk or bus/railway ride to the ferry to Manhattan. The South is more suburban in character, with large tracts of woods close to one and two family homes. Along the East Shore are the beach communities, dominated by small one and two family homes. The more industrialized West Shore is ripe for development, with its shipping terminal, light manufacturing, warehouses, a former correctional facility soon to become a major movie studio and the former “garbage dump” being transformed into the Fresh Kills Park. And expect to find deer crossing signs on the Island’s highways.

Cititrek is proud to offer an array of Staten Island walking and specialty tours or customize any tour for your viewing pleasure.
