Had a great day last Friday exploring #StGeorge with #press and #trade from #Brazil, #Argentina and #Hungary in partnership with NYC: The Official Guide. We toured the future sites of New York Wheel and Empire Outlets NYC, and also visited Staten Island Yankees, Alice Austen House Museum and Flagship Brewery while munching on some Pier 76 pizza. Excited for them to promote Destination St. George and welcome more visitors!

Staten Island Arts Organization Tries to Create Its Own Future

"All of this is really important now because there is so much is changing and it’s happening very rapidly," said Elizabeth Bennett, the executive director of Staten Island Arts. "So we are providing a forum for people to be heard, but also to be a part of the process."

On the North Shore, developers are putting up a hotel and a mall. The city is planning on rezoning. And local artists are working to make sure their voices heard, before it’s too late.

City Turns Its Eye to 'Forgotten Borough' Staten Island

As the de Blasio administration mulls new rezoning regulations for the North Shore of Staten Island, neighborhood rents — and anxieties — are on the rise.

A Brooklyn-Staten Island ferry? It's a no-brainer (editorial)

"Borough President Oddo is on to something here and has the vision to see where it can take us. We hope Deputy Mayor Glen has heard him, and gets the message to Mayor de Blasio."

Not often in this complicated city is something seemingly so easy to accomplish. We urge the mayor: Please do not pass on this opportunity.

Residents Want Open Space Amid North Shore Development

"Staten Island's waterfront, especially it's North Shore waterfront already has all the elements of what a maritime education recreation corridor could bring," said Kelly Vilar, founder of the Let's Rebuild Cromwell Community Coalition.

As major development sweeps through the North Shore, a group of local residents is proposing some projects of their own.

How many chain stores are there are on Staten Island?

"Staten Island is already adding new chain stores even before the Staten Island Mall's expansion and the New York Wheel and Empire Outlets are built. When we do this report next year we may see a much larger increase in chains with so much in the pipeline," said Jonathan Bowles, executive director of the Center for an Urban Future.

15 chain stores opened on Staten Island in 2016.

Rents rise along with demand for North Shore real estate

"I think it's going to be a happening neighborhood. For years there has been talk of the North Shore rebuilding, and I got news for you, it's here. Once the Wheel, outlets and more are here, I believe I'll be able to sell my apartment for a lot more than I paid. I don't think I'd be able to make that same investment anywhere else (on Staten Island)."

Anticipation of the NY Wheel and Empire Outlets has led to an increased demand for North rentals and investment properties.

It's time to allow lower-level boarding of Staten Island Ferry (editorial)

Implementing lower-level boarding is one measure proposed by the city to reduce congestion and accommodate redevelopment on the North Shore. In a November budget update, the city said that permitting lower-level boarding during peak times would increase efficiency and avoid the necessity of scheduling additional trips.

But here's the rub: The city is currently looking at lower-level boarding only at the Whitehall ferry terminal in Manhattan, not at St. George.

But increasing service also has to be looked at.

No Plans to Expand Citi Bike to Staten Island or The Bronx, Officials Say

"Citi Bike was criticized last year after stations were added in Jersey City, yet city boroughs were left unserviced. Jersey City would have the same issues with connections to the city that Trottenberg said Staten Island has."

City Council members debated adding public funds to the program to help it expand quicker.
