Understanding the North Shore Waterfront as Place

Margie Ruddick | June 14, 2017

Staten Island’s North Shore is a rich and varied urban landscape – the villages, with their unique and authentic vibrancy; the waterfront, where you can go all the way to the shoreline and feel immersed in the marine air and sounds; the layered history, still visible in the beautifully scaled old buildings; and the communities, filled with different traditions and nationalities and home to remarkably many artists, craftspeople, and civic activists.
