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 shit hole of NYC. A place that is an embarrassment to the rest of New York and we admittedly want to give it away to New York's bastard son, New jersey. However, not even Jersey wants it. Its only connection to NY is through the Verazzano Bridge which connects Bay Ridge to SI. Most of the people are Rich white guido types like in Bay Ridge but the Brooklyn kids are cooler because they arent from SI. Most of the SI kids pretend they are from Brooklyn because they are embarrassed of it themselves. No one has any reason to ever go to SI.
Gumba Johnny: Yo, where you from?
Staten Island thug: Bay Ridge Brooklyn on Main street dawg!!! hOLLLLAA
Gumba Johnny: That street doesnt exist in Bay ridge, you're from Staten Island arent you?
Staten Island thug: shit! dammit...yeah...

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.
