Staten Island is one of New York's 5 boroughs and is mostly residental, so very few tourists get off there, they just take the ferry to get views of Manhattan. The island is 3 times larger then Manhattan! Despite that it is also the least populated borough, Staten Island has only 469 000 inhabitants. You can find more pictures from the trip in this section.
