If you have any connection to Staten Island, be it past or present, if you have family or friends that have moved away and miss our Old Staten Island, this book is for you. With over 350 questions and answers about our islands past, it will be great sharing it with all who still live on Staten Island and all the expatriates. In the nine years since I started my 'Old Staten Island' website (www.statenislandhistory.com), I have been asked many questions about our islands past. With all the research I have done for my first four books and the start of my new facebook page about Staten Island memories came a plethora of answers to those questions. A few visitors to my facebook page brought up the idea of a trivia book on Staten Island which led to this book. I have to thank all the visitors to the facebook page and to my website for the many questions and suggestions which helped this publication along to fruition. I need to express my gratitude to Dan Blaine. He kindly consented to the use of his many questions from a blog he started in 1995. His site was called SI NosTrivia Forum, he would come up with a series of questions about people, places and events from Staten Island's past and people would try to answer them. Not only did I have a blast putting this book together, but the knowledge I gained about our island was priceless. Hopefully the answers to the questions are all accurate. I tried my best to research the answers and many times I reached out to get help with the answers. Here's hoping you enjoy this book as much as I have in putting it together.

Born and raised in Midland Beach, now residing in South Beach and living all my life on Staten Island. I always had a love of the Island and a desire to learn about this Island where I was born and raised. This led me to write this book. I have terrific memories of growing up here, particularly of my Mom bringing me to the beach as a child. I had a burning desire to find out the history of this Island before I was born and to learn about some of the wondrous tales that I was told. This all led to a website called "StatenIslandHistory.com" which I created almost five years ago. Many of the visitors sent email of memories and stories of their childhood on Staten Island. Many of the stories energized me to do more research about them. And before I knew it , I had loads of stories and information about the Island.
