Staten Island has had a lot of development happening lately, with the development of the New York Wheel, the Empire Outlet Mall, and the Outlet Mall’s 190 room Hotel, there is a lot going on. Did we mention that the Outlet mall is expected to open its doors in 2016?

Today, we give you a series of interviews , originally uploaded to the official New York Wheel YouTube account, from some key players to the completion of the project, as well as in the north shore community.

For those of you who haven’t heard, the grand opening of The Staten Island museum at Snug Harbor is fast approaching. One of the more unique exhibits that the museum will feature is a 10 foot tall Mastadon, representative of the early Mastadon inhabitants of Staten Island’s hills.

Not a single day goes by that one is not impressed by the vast array of talent which is so rampant in Staten Island and specifically on the North Shore. Cultural organizations such as the ones listed here add culture and education to our community and should never be overlooked.

This coming Saturday, December 13th, is the last Second Saturday of 2014 along the Bay Street Corridor in the North Shore. Sure to again be an eventful day, the highlighted venues included here will be hosting art exhibitions, artist markets, dance, spoken word, and other arts inspired events.
