Is Staten Island Turning Into Brooklyn?

Posted by Laird Klein on Wednesday, March 8th, 2017 at 3:24pm.

With so much construction and change hitting the North Shore as of late, many have found it fair to ask that evergreen question: Is Staten Island becoming the new Brooklyn?

In 2017, it does have some weight to it. With the NY Wheel and SI outlets quickly coming into focus and the recent emergence of URBY and the Lighthouse Point housing spaces, it is worth re-evaluating where SI stands. It seems that every few years we ask this question, but as construction is at an all-time high right now it begs us to also ponder what exactly this means for SI in the months and years to come.
