Staten Island: A Distant Borough, or a Distant Planet?

Today in mindboggling Freshkills Park updates, the Freshkills Park blog directs us to the website of Tully Construction, the firm responsible for the "final cover" work on the massive landfill turned park. The final cover means capping the landfill with layers of soil, synthetic textile, plastic and grass, and Tully has an incredible aerial photo gallery of the long process, which will be complete in 2012. Kind of looks like the surface or Mars or something, which would explain the alien behavior of Staten Island's Jersey Shore castmembers The Situation and Angelina.
