  • As soon as you arrive at the island of Staten Island, if you walk to your right on the port exit, you find yourself with this ride. It is a ride that surrounds the waterfront of the island and includes a tribute to the victims of 9/11. From here you will have excellent views of the island of Manhattan to take beautiful photos!

  • After riding the Staten Island Ferry, this building is worth a visit just to view the historical painting on the interior walls. 
  • Terrible place one person doing marriage licenses and the ceremony it will take 2-3 hr
  • For a building that people may or may not want to be visiting....the employees were nothing less than helpful and the architecture and murals are an extra perk for a municipality.
  • Lovely murals and historical background of Staten Island... And free!
  • There is more to NY and it is here.
  • After a 4 year+ battle and still no action taken to correct a retaining wall in my backyard I would say the building department has failed to keep my children safe in there own backyard. This is my only way of contact being the answering machine has been full for months and when the call is transferred it then says invalid number and hangs up. This is typical of a NYC agency way to go Mr. Bloomberg keep up the good work can't wait to see you in court! I wouldn't even give 1 star but that isn't an option.
