The forgotten Borough where you've gotten into arguments with people who think Long Island is the fifth borough. You refer to Manhattan as 'the city'. You call the ferry "the boat". You can name all four bridges. Denino's Pizza and Ralph's Ices are the best summertime treats ---and you will wait on line for 45 minutes just for a vanilla chip ice! You've gone sledding at Latourette. There is only one mall... and it's called 'the mall.' It takes you a half hour to get to your friend's house... and they live less than a mile away. You know it's Prince's Bay, not Princess Bay. You would never swim in the water here. At least one of your relatives is fluent in Italian.
You or someone you know has more than one matching velour sweat suits in their closet. You can smell the dump from your house but you're so used to the smell that you don't notice it anymore. You've gotten into a screaming match over a parking spot. Someone you know has a lifetime membership to Tanning Loft. Everyone you know claims to be 'connected.' You've hung out in a parking lot. You know the difference between Richmond Rd., Richmond Ave., and Richmond Terrace. You know that 'Mike' owns all the good diners. You refer to every highway on the island as 'The Expressway.' You've been cut off by a souped up Honda Accord with earth shaking bass playing. You have chased someone for cutting you off just to give them the finger. A development of townhouses has recently sprung up in your neighborhood. The shocks in your car are shot because you hit pot holes every 2 feet. You have the need to look at the people in the car next to you when stopped at a red light to see if it someone you know. You know never to walk on South Beaches sand with out Shoes. You've seen Method Man in the Mall at least once. The Monastery and Sea View aren't scary, just another place to drink. Everyone own a North Face jacket and has a Nextel. You wave at the weird leg guy when you pass the North Shore, and sometimes he waves back.
Staten Island: Everyone own a North Face jacket and has a Nextel.

One of the five boroughs of New York City who's south shore is mostly suburbanish while it's North Shore is consdidered urban. Any resident can tell you that the two shores are like diffrent worlds. The South shore and mid-island are heavily republican while the North shore has been said to have more in common with parts of Brooklyn and Queens then it does with the rest of Staten Island. The South shore is mostly white while the North shore is primarily black. While the South shore is filled with mostly middle-upper middle class families living in areas that would be considered suburbs, the North shore is filled with mostly low-income urban areas that are home to mostly blacks and hispanics. The Staten Island Railroad was even called the "Mason-Dixon Line" due to the fact that the overwhelming majority of the borough's minorities live above it on the island's North shore, and due to hate crimes that were being commited in Staten Island's Mid-land and southern areas. Crime is also a problem in most of the neighborhoods that make up the North shore. North Staten Island was giving a zoning law that would allow owners to open stores on it almost tax-free to help boost the economy because of the long time poverty and unemployment that exists on the island's North Shore. While the majority of the neighborhoods on the North Shore are ran-down areas that suffer from crime, poverty, unemployment, AIDS, teenage pregnacy and other things of that nature, the South and Mid-land areas are for the most part nice places to live and to raise a family. The media's reluctance to report things that happen on Staten Island most likely so they don't tarnish it's already fading reputation as a virtually crime-free easy going suburb is probably the exact reason why out-of-towners move in to homes on the North Shore and move out accordinly.
You get the picture.

A place where there is ALWAYS traffic on the staten island expressway, everyone has an attitude problem, the girls are mostly trash with the exception of a few, mostly everyone lives in connected town houses or condos and thinks their brand new altima's are the hottest thing. They think they are "italian" meanwhile they're "italian-american". I've been to italy and REAL italians are not like Staten Islanders. do yourself a favor if you're ever driving thru staten island KEEP MOVING. The people are garbage! Only if the ppl from staten island couldnt get off that island! ..but luckily enough their TOO POOR too travel anywhere else besides the jersey shore or brooklyn and maybe spring break if they save for months.. so dont worry the rest of the world is safe from them!!
staten island is horrible

The odd man out of the New York City boroughs. Staten Island is west of the Hudson and should be considered part of New Jersey. Kind of like how Marble Hill is on the mainland but is part of Manhattan. Go figure.
Growing up in Yonkers, Staten Island was like the moon: a shithole, no reason to there, feels a lot farther than it actually is, a place you see and hear about but still seems mythical.

The asshole of the universe. A place where white kids who try act like they are black, but fail miserably. A place where the Wu-Tang Clan resides. A place where the the short 'A' sound is pronounced 'aw' by some people. A place where the only thing to do is hang out at the mall.
Guy: Hey are you from Staten Island?
White Kid from SI: Yeah Yo! This place is Gawd awful son. I am wearin' my Fubu and I's be goin' to the mall lata'.
