1928

Thanks to the Speed Graphic Film and Video Channel, we now have this rare footage of the Staten Island ferry docking from way back in 1928.

“Summer”, there is nothing that says it more than the line that forms outside of Ralph’s Ices on Port Richmond Avenue in Staten Island. Its founders create and sell over 100 flavors of the best ices in the world. This fine establishment is indigenous to Staten Island and Staten Islanders can’t get enough of it. Dozens of people line up outside the white brick building with the blue awning.
