Staten Island is one of 5 boroughs of New York City in New York State. It is located in the southwest part of the city.

Staten Island is an Island, surrounded by water from New Jersey by the Arthur Kill waterway, and also from the rest of New York by New York Bay.

With a population of over 450,000 people, Staten Island is still the least populated of the five boroughs but is the third largest in
area at nearly 60 sq miles. The Borough of Staten Island is also known as Richmond County, the southernmost county in the state of New York.
Staten Island is overall the most suburban of the five boroughs of New York City. The North Shore — especially the neighborhoods of St. George, Tompkinsville, Clifton, and Stapleton — is the most urban part of the island; it contains the officially designated St. George Historic District and the St. Paul’s Avenue-Stapleton Heights Historic District.

The South Shore has more suburban-style residential neighborhoods entral and southern sections of the island were earlier dominated by dairy and poultry farms. Staten Island also had two small airports, one having a drive-in theatre near it.

Since the opening of the Verazzano Bridge in 1965, the borough has seen massive expansion of housing, shopping, with many Fortune 500 companies expanding to Staten Island over the years. New roadways and additional Public schools have been built to accomadate the large increase in student popluation.

Staten Island used to claim the largest landfill in the world, and was closed in 2001, then shortly afterward reopened to house the debris from the September 11th attacks, and then closed for good. The landfill is now in the process of being made into what will be New York City's largest public park.

The borough is accessible to Brooklyn via the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge and to New Jersey via the Outerbridge Crossing, Goethals Bridge, and Bayonne Bridge. Staten Island has Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) bus service and an MTA rapid transit line, the Staten Island Railway, which runs from the ferry terminal at St. George to Tottenville. Staten Island is the only one of the five boroughs of New York City that does not have below-ground rapid transit. The free Staten Island Ferry connects the borough to Manhattan and is a popular tourist attraction, providing views of the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island and lower Manhattan.
