Staten Island neither gone nor forgotten

In January, Forgotten NY took a tour of the St. George Theater and some of the gorgeous old houses in St. George, the neighborhood hugging the ferry terminal in Staten Island.  SI-based artist and author Cynthia Von Buhler (who, with her husband Russell Farhang, compile our favorite Staten Island blog, The Prodigal Borough) helped lead the tour and gave a guided tour of their own incredible home.  This New York Times story from 2005 provides an account of how the couple found their house and serves as a reminder to us of how much prices drop for amazing properties when you venture onto Staten Island.

Forgotten NY says they’ll be documenting more Staten Island adventures this year.  Looking forward to it.
