Comment of the Day

"I live about a block away from these proposed developments, and as a current Staten Islander I want to go on record and say, there are some of us that actually support the development. Escaping to the quiet suburban lifestyle of Staten Island was the ideal of my grandparents and parents generation. This isn't how the millenials feel. I enjoy the Island because of its beauty, my family and my lifelong friends, but we desperately need to build a downtown that can sustain an engaging pedestrian experience and offer the types of activity one can find in the neighborhoods of other boroughs. These pictures show the picturesque beauty of the North Shore, but they do not show the failing downtown that these developments could start to fix."?SustainableSI [Staten Island Awaits Giant Ferris Wheel, Transformation]
