Staten Island is an urban, business-friendly neighbourhood with convenient options for restaurants. The neighbourhood's friendly people and skyline are just a couple of its charming qualities. Take in the natural beauty of the parks and island views—or broaden your horizons with some local art and theatre. A stay at one of the hotels in Staten Island makes it easy to venture out into the larger area.
The local museums and theatres add a sense of refinement. Jacques Marchais Museum of Tibetan Art, Alice Austen House Museum, and Staten Island Children's Museum feature captivating exhibits. You can check out the local talent at St. George Theatre, Union County Performing Arts Center, and AMC Dine-In Theatres Menlo Park 12. Notable landmarks include Historic Richmond Town, Freshkills Park, and Fort Wadsworth. Hours of family fun are waiting at Staten Island Zoo, Roller Jam USA, and Kids N' Shape.
Shopping and attending sporting events are a couple of popular activities in the area. You'll find the great outdoors at parks like Amundsen Circle, High Rock Park, and Great Kills Park. At Blue Heron Park, Franklin D. Roosevelt Boardwalk and Beach, and Audubon Center, take some time to really appreciate nature. La Tourette Golf Course, Staten Island Mall, or Great Kills Harbor will provide yet another welcomed diversion.
Don't miss some of the area's most popular attractions, such as Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, and Ellis Island Immigration Museum. You can also head to Lenny's Creations, New York Chinese Scholar's Garden, and Joseph Medwick Park.
For a quick way to explore the city, catch a ride on metro transit at Oakwood Heights Station, New Dorp Station, or Bay Terrace Station.
