Staten-Island is situated in New York Bay, about five miles southwest of the island of Manhattan. Also known as Richmond, it is connected to Brooklyn by the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge and to Manhattan by ferry. Three other bridges connect Staten Island to New Jersey. It is the smallest of New York City's five boroughs in population and is primarily a residential community, with shipping, oil-refining and manufacturing activities. Florentine explorer Giovanni da Verrazzano, sailing under the French flag, discovered the island in 1524, and it wasn't until 1661, that the first settlement was founded. During the American Revolution, British forces captured Staten Island and held it until 1783. It was made a New York City borough in 1898. Historic Richmond Town on Staten Island is a restored 100-acre village that recreates the appearance and lifestyle of three centuries of local history. Other Staten Island attractions include the Alice Austen House, the Snug Harbor Cultural Center, Staten Island Zoo and Botanical Garden and the Staten Island Children's Museum. The Conference House on Staten Island is a National Historic Landmark, built in 1680, and the site of a Revolutionary War era peace conference.

Staten Island Weather & Climate

Manhattan and the surrounding area have four seasons of changeable weather. Summers are often hot and muggy and last until September. Temperatures usually soar to near 100 degrees F. for a week to ten days in mid-July to mid-August. Another uncomfortable time to visit New York City is during January and February when temps are often in the 20s and the concrete canyons of the city can turn into wind tunnels. Otherwise, the rest of the year the weather is comfortable, with March usually being the rainiest month. May offers great weather - just warm enough for walking around but cool enough to remain comfortable. Autumn has more sunshine than spring, although both are clear and bright. New York City is magical at Christmas time and the changing leaves of fall makes it a beautiful time to visit the area.
