Verrazano Narrows Bridge

Take a trip down memory lane and watch this cool video by Maxine Wilde that’s sure to pique the interest of local history buffs.

The video in this post shows a handful of random archival footage, showing the Verrazano in various stages of construction. If you can look past the timecode and other annoying titles on screen, it’s interesting to look back at the iconic structure in days gone by. It’s just too bad there’s so little.

It’s the middle of February and we’re all just waiting for summer. Today, we give you this drone film by Johnny Drone, which is a litle taste of summer on Staten Island’s shores. Shot in New Dorp and Midland Beaches, features the fishing pier and views of the Verrazano Bridge. We’ve got a couple of months to go, but the glow of the YouTube video should keep you warm in the meantime.

Films That Were Shot on Staten Island

With the Netflix release of Staten Island Summer coming up fast (July 30th, 2015), we thought it would be fun to take some time to look back at some other popular movies with at least one filming location on Staten Island.

It’s been two years since Hurricane Sandy struck and the Sandy Hooks Pilots Association has been struck with five-feet storm surges along with raw sewage flooding. Since then, the facility has been deemed inoperable. That is, until now.
