As someone who's never been to Staten Island, some aerial photos of it would be nice--especially on a TRAVEL website. Also, a few photos of some popular Staten Island destinations AND a few photos of some "secret" destinations (like a favorite eatery, museum, park, "watering hole", theater, park, pond, etc.) would be nice for us novices. "A picture's worth a thousand words."
With the caveat that I'm a Manhattanite, I've never heard anyone talk about the east or west shores of Staten Island, but there are various neighborhoods, such as New Dorp, Tottenville, etc., etc. My feeling is, anyone who wants to should group the neighborhoods into North Shore and South Shore, but there should be only one article about Staten Island.

I have the distinct impression that Staten Island is not a "huge city" by our standards. If we get to the point that we're districtifying Staten Island, I think we need to re-evaluate our guidelines! LtPowers 08:43, 18 July 2010 (EDT)
I agree completely. Staten Island doesn't merit more than one article. However, dividing the neighborhoods into two categories within this article is not a bad idea. Ikan Kekek 14:57, 18 July 2010 (EDT)
That is what I meant when I said to group it. Put what attractions are on the North Shore and South Shore. I didn't mean divide it into 20 different neighborhoods, just 2 sections that are fairly different (the North Shore is more urban) would suffice. —The preceding comment was added by 22.214.171.124 (talk • contribs)
