I posted this in the wrong area and started a new post so I will hopefully do this right. I visited Staten Island with my family, children that grew up in the West, like Washington State. I showed the all of Staten Island that I grew up in. West Brighton the Markham Homes Projects on North Burgher Ave. They looked much better that when I grew up. Castleton Ave, Sacred Heart Church and school. St Peters High School of Boys, Staten Island Ferry, Stapleton, then over to Port Richmond and Port Richmond High School and ball field. Sharpe Ave and St Mary's Church where my grandmother and my father lived and I have many memories. The old Rapid Transit railroad that used to run on he North Shore for 10 cents for a ride. The railroad tressel (?) that I and my friends used to walk from West Brighton to Port Richmond. It overlooked Wiessglass Stadium where we would watch the stock car races.The ferry boat at the end of Richmond Ave that used to take us to the Penny Arcade on the New Jersey side. I travel around with a rental car and a cam-corder. I recorded all the sites and will return again to do it again. I love Staten Island and the foods that I can no longer get in the wide open spaces of Washington State. I consider anyone living on Staten Island, as lucky. Like McArthur once said, "I will return".
