Staten Island is one of five boroughs in New York City. It is the smallest borough based on population but, it is perhaps the most diverse one as well. The cultural diffusion within this city is what I love about it most. Being such a small city, everybody knows everybody and this makes our community so much stronger.

Staten Island is an oasis in the concrete wasteland of New York City. Unlike the tall stone buildings that vigilantly protect the pavement of the other four boroughs from any direct sunlight, the roads in Staten Island are wide, bright, and lined with greenery. It is a short escape from the hustle-and-bustle of the cultural capital of the world.

Upon moving to Staten Island, one may not be sure of how to assimilate to city life. Some advice I would give is to have patience while driving; half a million people live on Staten Island, and more drivers equals more frustration on the road. On a positive note, there is an impressive number of local restaurants to choose from, so you are sure to find something that suits you from a culinary standpoint.
