Today, Saturday December 3rd, marks the 2016 Minthorne Street Winter Festival. The event where live music, food, art, and games collide into a delightful afternoon of activity and holiday shopping for the entire Staten Island community.
Now that Thanksgiving is over, the holiday countdown has officially begun. Whether you’re awaiting a visit from Santa or patiently waiting to light your menorah and kinara, there are plenty of holiday happenings to hold you over throughout December.
The Sundog Theatre is celebrating the holiday season with a special performance of “A Christmas Carol,” and the 2017 Scenes From The Staten Island Ferry, a one-act play submission contest.
Staten Island may not be a major fashion destination, but it is home to some of the most talented artists and designers in the city. So when a Staten Island Ferry t-shirt surfaced on American Eagle Outfitters’ (AEO) website, we couldn’t help but feel a sense of hometown pride.
We’ve created an embed of Google’s timelapse map of Staten Island. It’s interesting to see events like the construction of Richmond County Ballpark and the renovation of Fresh Kills happen in the blink of an eye.
