Staten Island Web logo



I've always heard that General Santa Anna spent some of his exile on Staten Island. This was relative common knowledge in my family, my brother and I being huge Davy Crockett (and Alamo) buffs, as children. I also got a kick out of discovering that Aaron Burr spent his last days here, and that Edwin Markham played host to Russian Revolution writer Maxim Gorky, in his Westerleigh home.
