Kill Van Kull
This short video is actually a trailer to a longer, silent video that Jirasiritham presented for a master class project for the Spitzer School of Architecture at CCNY. The film, titled “Exploring the Forgotten Borough,” takes the viewer on a bike tour of the North Shore.
The French Huguenots that settled in Staten Island during the latter part of the 1600s were refugees. They were from the Protestant Reformed Church of France during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. They were subject to severe religious persecution in their native France.
Staten Island drone pilot, UnitedWeFlyGuy, has released another video on his YouTube channel. This DGI Phantom footage shows some of the tugboats, birds, and life off of the Kill Van Kull.
