Antique Images of Staten Island


Since 1898, Staten Island is one of the five boroughs of New York City, coterminous with Richmond County, southeastern New York.

The first permanent European settlement in Staten Island was established by the Dutch in 1661 at Oude Dorp (Old Village). Richmond County was organized in 1683, under British control.

Staten Island has several resorts and parks, including Clove Lakes, Silver Lake, Greenbelt, High Rock and the Staten Island Zoo. The historic Richmond Town is a museum complex.
