This Saturday, December 10th, the SI Makerspace collective are throwing their annual Makerspace maker Market. The event promotes the idea of local people creating local goods and art. The Makerspace has built a reputation in the last few years as Staten Island’s premiere destination for allowing those that want to get their hands dirty and create to do just that.

Pictures with Santa Claus, gift ideas from local artists, rides on the Holiday Train, a $500 Visa Gift card & a Flat Screen TV giveaway are just a few of the things families can look forward to this weekend.

It’s about to be an even better time to live on Staten Island. If only one thing is good about this Island, it’s the food. We’re about to get a whole lot of restaurants and eateries over the course of the next few years. Many of these restaurants will be featured in either the soon-to-be renovated Staten Island Mall or the upcoming Empire Outlets.

Staten Island’s own marine mammal research organization, Gotham Whale, is continuously collecting data on sightings of seals, dolphins, and whales that are returning to the waters around New York City. Each documented sighting is recorded in their database and collected into anecdotal reports, which they turn into real data that can be used to better understand where and when these animals are appearing.

TWOB recently sat down with the real estate professionals at M. Donato & Company Realty and came up with some great selling points for Staten Island. If you’re one of those renters who is hesitant to cross the Verrazano, perhaps one or all of these reasons will help change your mind.

Today, Saturday December 3rd, marks the 2016 Minthorne Street Winter Festival. The event where live music, food, art, and games collide into a delightful afternoon of activity and holiday shopping for the entire Staten Island community.

Now that Thanksgiving is over, the holiday countdown has officially begun. Whether you’re awaiting a visit from Santa or patiently waiting to light your menorah and kinara, there are plenty of holiday happenings to hold you over throughout December.

The Sundog Theatre is celebrating the holiday season with a special performance of “A Christmas Carol,” and the 2017 Scenes From The Staten Island Ferry, a one-act play submission contest.

Staten Island may not be a major fashion destination, but it is home to some of the most talented artists and designers in the city. So when a Staten Island Ferry t-shirt surfaced on American Eagle Outfitters’ (AEO) website, we couldn’t help but feel a sense of hometown pride.

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.

The ever-persistent nostalgia wave is hitting the borough hard in the form of Boy Band Review, the country’s greatest boy band tribute show. On December 10, Boy Band Review will be headed to Liberty Tavern, located at 382 Forest Avenue, for a night of “Dirty Pop” and dancing.

This past month, Staten Island’s own Nani Castle and Producer Udachi teamed up for a hot new track called ‘Crying in the Dark.’

Staten Island Railroad

The Staten Island Railroad is just one of the many staples that we have in this borough of New York City.

Professionals at the Family Justice Center are committed to helping victims of domestic violence in Staten Island. Located at 126 Stuyvesant Place in St. George, the center is a safe haven where people can begin to heal after the damage of traumatic experiences.

Thanksgiving is arguably one of the best holidays. It’s hard to compete with a day that’s solely dedicated to eating delicious seasonal food for hours on end. However, some of us like to kick off our celebrations a day earlier by partaking in Thanksgiving Eve festivities.
