I have visited Staten Island (great free Ferry ride) and most of my interactions have been very pleasant, the place has a fascinating History, and some really excellent Restaurants.
But there’s not a Hotel or a Motel on the Island that hasn’t seen a murder and Fresh Kills has it’s own special Chernobyl section where they piled up all the Radioactive Waste from the Medical Devices.
They also have Deer which people get all sentimental about because Bambi.
They’re really not much more than big disease ridden Rats.
I’m anxious to visit again when it’s possible.

Staten Island grocery shoppers drive out woman who refuses to wear a mask in the store
By Brad Reed, Raw Story

A group of angry shoppers at a Staten Island ShopRite were captured on video driving out a woman in the store who refused to wear a face mask.
The 20-second video clip shows masked shoppers swarming around a shopper who is pushing her cart around without any kind of face covering.
“Get out!” one of the shoppers yells at the woman.
“Get the f*ck out of here!” yells another.
While the woman is initially defiant, she eventually relents to peer pressure and leaves the store.
Staten Island has been hard hit by COVID-19 and has recorded more than 13,000 coronavirus infections and nearly 1,000 deaths from the disease.
I’ve been in that store.
Of course it just proves we’re intolerant politically correct assholes.
