WATCH: Take A Tour Of The Staten Island Railroad

The Staten Island Railroad is just one of the many staples that we have in this borough of New York City. It has become a great resource to get people to the St. George Ferry so they can get to their jobs every morning. Local youngsters rely on the train system to get to and from school, as well as hanging out with their friends in different neighborhoods. Without the Staten Island Railroad, a bunch of us would be highly inconvenienced and would be at a little bit of a loss.

You can get to almost anywhere in Staten Island using the Railroad system. The tracks span from Tottenville all the way to St. George, which is a huge chunk of the island. Brandon Betancourt, a YouTuber, has filmed an entire railway ride from one end to the other and has uploaded it unedited. The entire video lasts forty minutes, which is the same length of time it would take you to take the trip in real life.

The train has been operational for over a century, being first incorporated in August of the year 1851. Since then, the train has gone through its fair share of changes, the most recent change being the addition of the soon to be opened Arthur Kills station, which will see the closure of the Nassau and Pacific stations.
