Visiting Staten Island is a secret NY journey you must experience to appreciate the city. For one, it starts with a free cruise through the sparkling blue waters of New York Bay, a body of water rivaled only by the Caribbean in beauty.

Once on Staten Island, however, it’s best to keep your wits about you. For example, beware the vicious man-eating parakeets.

But if you look hard enough, you’ll find houses you’d never see on Manhattan.

And on the way home, I got the world’s best view of New York. Smiling tourists included.
