A few things need to be set straight here!

1. There are black people on Staten Island! It isn't all Italian.

2. There is no dump and hasn't been since 2001.

3. The air is seriously polluted but it doesn't smell.

4. There's five sections of Staten Island, the North Shore, the South Shore, the West Shore, Mid-Island, and the SI Mall.

5. All the black/hispanic/non-white people live on the North Shore (Above the highway). All the white people live in the other sections.

6. There are over 7 sets of project buildings on Staten Island.

7. There are very rough, and unsafe areas on Staten Island's North Shore.

8. There's three bus lines that go to Brooklyn and one to Jersey.

9. North Shore Staten Island people don't travel to the other parts of SI and only see them at the Mall and the Ferry.

10. "Guidos" from the South Shore are scared of the North Shore!
Black Dude from SI: "yea i'm from Staten Island "
Bronx Person: "Damnn..i thought only white ppl live dere"

Home of the most obnoxious, rude, loud and abrasive Italians in the world! Looks almost as if Manhattan took a shit a missed a piece of dangling crap. Absolutely nothing fun to do so you end up hanging out in the only mall in the borough for about 7 hours a day, if you're not trying to look cool with your friends standing in front of the 3 movie theaters waiting to get in. North Shore made up of mostly low-income, working class residents (Black and Latino). South Shore and Mid-Island made up of mostly middle to high income residents (Italians and more Italians). The young people do 90 on every single street and cut off the other drivers while giving the finger, smoking their cigarette, and talking to one of their 200 friends on their cell phones. A/x t-shirts, baggy denim jeans, and white tennis shoes are the dress code and don't forget the black bubble North Face during the colder months. Every single Italian is driving in a Mitsabishi Galant or Nissan Altima who also refuse to hang out in the borough. Everyone flocks to Manhattan as if it was the holy land to get completely trashed at the night club of their choice. More than 50 percent of the borough is comprised of the largest manmade landfill in the entire world (fact). Borough residents live in mid-sized homes on top of each other and never even dream of moving anywhere else. The girls may actually have even less class than their male counterparts. The young people think living in the borough is the absolute worst but could never imagine living anywhere else. You can get to any place in the borough in about an half hour no matter where you live. Made up of people (Italians) who look exactly like each other who constantly screw each other over. The girls think they are going to marry their boyfriends at the age of 13. Their is absolutely no nightlife to speak of. Completely devoid of any high end dining or cultural significance. If you are a native New Yorker who does not fit the agressive, who you lookin' at stereotype, you will loathe this place and dispise the natives (Italians).
Staten Island: Stay away from the Italians!

Very segregated. Very few from the North will venture out to the South and vice versa. The mall acts an an epicenter for the two. The South is mostly White and the North is all the other ethnicity with a few in the middle.

Out of all the places in NY, I feel this is the most racist area I've ever been. Unbearable rude, spoiled, narrow minded, stuck up people. Everyone I've met has the same attitude and manners as Jersey Shore, slightly calmer.

It is a very closed off area, you only see residents on staten island. No one from other boroughs of NY.

Everyone that wants to fit in wear North Face, the black puffy ugly jacket. Parking is good but if you park in front of someone's house they will curse you out. Even though they have a corner house and a double driveway.

South Shore is deserted you will not meet people walking around. If you do, you don't want to be associated with them.

Public transportation is HORRIBLE. A commute to midtown, ny can be almost 2hrs one way!!!
Staten Island:

"I wear North Face, so I'm going to act conceded"

"Don't you dare park your car in front of my house, even though that spot is considered public and I do not own it. Even though it is common elsewhere in NY."

"I'm going to make racist comments to the minorities because they are clearly out numbered by living here."

"How did the bottom of your car get so scratched up?!?"
"That's normal, a pothole is the same size as the tire."

A borough of New York that's part suburban and part city.
Staten Islanders live in 3-bedroom houses and either drive, take a bus, a boat, or a train to get to places.
Danielle, sweetie, remember to lock the house before you catch the S56 to school, we don't want some fuck head to break in and steal our big-screen tv and trash the basement's rec-room, I'm taking the X1 to work today, well it's such a nice day, maybe i'll take the S61 to St. George and take the Staten Island ferry, I wanna view the city and smell the ocean.

My favorite place in the world. Everyone says how shitty it is but truthfully, there are few places I enjoy more. While it's evident that you shouldn't go in the water at the beach I'm sure many people have enjoyed running through the splash grounds when they were younger. What about the playgrounds? Can anyone truly say that they've burnt their feet by running around the black rubber barefoot and never done it again? It's just one of those things that makes you feel at home. Maybe it's just a "Great Kills" thing because everyone else seems to think Staten Island is just a hell hole.
history teacher: so you had the 5 burroughs...which were?

class: *names all but SI*

me: staten island! *mumbles under breath* duh, its the only place to live

The armpit of New York City. Perpetually stuck 20-30 years behind the rest of NYC. Insane drivers, shitty public transportation (at least compared to the rest of the city).

Location of the world's biggest garbage dump. Full of pothead teenagers who somehow can't afford to pay off the tickets on the brand new car mommy and daddy bought 'em. People there tend to have an Italian grandparent who was born in the U.S. but act like everyone in their family's in the Sicilian mob. Has the world's worst drivers: everyone's a roid-raged Jersey Shore wannabe, hopped up on Oxy, or 90 years old.

Half a million people, but about 4 movie theaters and two bookstores.

Basically, take the worst parts of Brooklyn and Jersey and you've got Staten Island.
Maybe not EVERYONE from Staten Island, but face it, if you live there, you know people just like this.
