This interesting Boroughs has feel completely of its own. Isolated from the rest of the city Staten Island feels more like a small town then really part of New York. The area hasn't changed much in the last few decades and it retains its own unique identity. Although most people just take the free ferry ride over in order to catch the views of Manhattan the island is worth more then just a quick turn around. It is an enjoyable place that is worth walking around and is home to several minor league sports teams. If you want to get the local feel Staten Island is the place to go.
Staten Island is the only area of New York not services by the subway.
The Staten Island ferry runs 24 hours a day and is every half an hour from 8 am to 9 pm. It leaves from the northern point of the island and arrives at the southern point of Manhattan
