Staten Island Web logo



I wonder if the idea of the boat sinking in Manhattan, and the need to check the life preservers when riding the ferry have something to do with some kind of primal fear we have about leaving an island home. I sometimes wonder if we forget about the fact that we are actually living on an island. I spoke to a therapist once who said she never saw as many people with bridge phobias as she's seen on Staten Island.
