Staten Island

It took over nine months, but I finally set foot on Staten Island. I have now conquered all five boroughs. And by conquered I mean have physically walked around a tiny bit of four of them and a whole lot of Manhattan. I was not really impressed by Staten Island, but I think I was just not in the right parts. Staten Island is more "rural" and most people have cars. The thing I noticed most while walking around was there were parking lots, no yellow cabs and I could hear birds chirping as I was walking down the street (which is to say it was eerily quiet at points).
