Did you know? “Ferry Tales” A Documentary Filmed On The Staten Island Ferry Was Nominated For An Oscar in 2004?
We had a chance to chat with Corinna Sager, producer of Ferry Tales and Kamillah Hanks who was featured in the film and consequentially was the film’s publicist. Hanks is currently running for the north shore council seat against incumbent Debi Rose.

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.
By now we’ve seen the Arthur Kill Ship Graveyard from both kayak and drone, but neither of those views included much in the way of information. Today, we share a video that explains the history of the Staten Icon.
This past September, we let you know about the first annual Cypher Fest, a celebration of creativity and art on Staten Island.

In the clip embedded in this post, stills and video illustrate how much of the art for the festival was created and in some cases even bring viewers behind the scenes look at the works in various stages of completion.
A trio of cultural events grace the shores of Staten Island in the next two weeks, and we recommed that you check them all out!
