My favorite place in the world. Everyone says how shitty it is but truthfully, there are few places I enjoy more. While it's evident that you shouldn't go in the water at the beach I'm sure many people have enjoyed running through the splash grounds when they were younger. What about the playgrounds? Can anyone truly say that they've burnt their feet by running around the black rubber barefoot and never done it again? It's just one of those things that makes you feel at home. Maybe it's just a "Great Kills" thing because everyone else seems to think Staten Island is just a hell hole.
history teacher: so you had the 5 burroughs...which were?
class: *names all but SI*
me: staten island! *mumbles under breath* duh, its the only place to live
A borough of New York that's part suburban and part city.
Staten Islanders live in 3-bedroom houses and either drive, take a bus, a boat, or a train to get to places.
Danielle, sweetie, remember to lock the house before you catch the S56 to school, we don't want some fuck head to break in and steal our big-screen tv and trash the basement's rec-room, I'm taking the X1 to work today, well it's such a nice day, maybe i'll take the S61 to St. George and take the Staten Island ferry, I wanna view the city and smell the ocean.
A dance move that involves one pumping their fist into the air and gyrating their pelvis uncontrollably once the bass has been dropped....
C-Dub: Yo girl, did you see Carly last night?! Once her favorite jam came on, she pulled a "staten island" all over the dance floor!
A borough of New York City. People that don't live here act as if a plethora of great activities is thrown in their fucking faces every weekend. Apparently being well-groomed (eyebrow waxing, etc.) is looked down upon by ignorant shitstains on society, and a "Staten Island accent" is inferior to any other accent, no matter how idiotic other accents may sound (such as a Southern accent, which is comparable to a deformed moose having sex with a frog). There is a large landfill that hasn't been in use since 2001, after the last of the September 11th debris was delivered. Yet, people that are oblivious of life in Staten Island continue to add definitions.
Two 70+ year old men having a conversation:
Man 1: "So where did you grow up?"
Man 2: "I grew up in Staten Island, New York."
Man 1: "Oh, I've heard that's not such a great place.Your life must have sucked pretty bad then, huh?"
Man 2: "Actually not in the slightest, I'm still happily married to my wife of 40 years, I have 3 children that all went through college with full scholarships and now they have their own families. How about you, where did you grow up?"
Man 1: "Oh I grew up in Arkansas."
Man 2: "Oh that sounds nice, how's your life been so far?"
Man 1: "...I got charged with 25 to life for murdering a prostitute after I robbed a bank, killed 3 police officers and highjacked a truck full of explosives...Luckily I fled the country though!"
Man 2: "Yeah! You define the word lowlife!"
me, personally from staten island, can say that you guys over exagerrate on the whole staten island stereotype. this whole island isnt filled with assholes, and i bet you you haven't even been to staten island before, so just stop talking bull shit. yeah i live in south shore, and so what? i'm italian, i'm not orange, i dont have tips, i dont walk around like a skank. yeah i have a north face and have coach and chanel bags, what about it? we wax our eyebrows, i would hope you do too. girls wear tight pants, no shit, do you want us to look like guys? you might think we're spoiled but if you look around im sure there much more spoiled kids where you live. we have an accent, and im pretty sure you have one from where you live too. so stop stereotyping and dont open your mouth if you dont know what your talking about. kay thanks.
Girl 1= you from staten island?
Girl 2= yeah.. why?
Girl 1= you talk & look like one.
Girl 2= good, i'm glad... you look like your from a shithole.
Home of the most obnoxious, rude, loud and abrasive Italians in the world! Looks almost as if Manhattan took a shit a missed a piece of dangling crap. Absolutely nothing fun to do so you end up hanging out in the only mall in the borough for about 7 hours a day, if you're not trying to look cool with your friends standing in front of the 3 movie theaters waiting to get in. North Shore made up of mostly low-income, working class residents (Black and Latino). South Shore and Mid-Island made up of mostly middle to high income residents (Italians and more Italians). The young people do 90 on every single street and cut off the other drivers while giving the finger, smoking their cigarette, and talking to one of their 200 friends on their cell phones. A/x t-shirts, baggy denim jeans, and white tennis shoes are the dress code and don't forget the black bubble North Face during the colder months. Every single Italian is driving in a Mitsabishi Galant or Nissan Altima who also refuse to hang out in the borough. Everyone flocks to Manhattan as if it was the holy land to get completely trashed at the night club of their choice. More than 50 percent of the borough is comprised of the largest manmade landfill in the entire world (fact). Borough residents live in mid-sized homes on top of each other and never even dream of moving anywhere else. The girls may actually have even less class than their male counterparts. The young people think living in the borough is the absolute worst bu...more...
