This, is Staten Island


Staten Island is the smallest of New York's five boroughs.  It lies  across New York Harbor from Manhattan, which is most easily accessible via the Staten Island Ferry.  It also connects to Brooklyn to its west via the Verrazano Bridge.  In this remarkable video, contributor and pilot Matthew Chirico used a drone to give us a look at this borough-island, which became part of New York City in its 1898 consolidation in which the five boroughs of New York joined together to become a single great city.
