Staten Island Community Directory Article

Staten Islander Launches Community Directory…Finally

The Staten Island Community Directory is here! We know it’s been a while in the making, and also know this resource will be much-appreciated by islanders and visitors, alike. (You can access the directory at

This directory is far from an afterthought, and was envisioned as the centerpiece of the Staten Islander News Service web site. (See our first post: StatenIslander.Org: News, Information, and A Business Directory For Staten Island Residents And Enthusiasts )

We wanted to bring together all that Our Island has to offer in an easy-to-use directory, accessible from both a phone and computer.

Looking for a place to eat? You’ll find what you’re looking for here. Looking for a place to bring the family on the weekend? Here you’ll find our island’s cultural treasures. Seeking a charity to donate your time to, in order to help those Islanders who are less fortunate? It’ll all be here.

Right now, the directory is in its infancy; there are only entries for cultural institutions at this time. And, as far as advanced functionality, that’s in the works as well. Expect more and more features to become available as we test and deploy new customized options specially coded by our team of developers.

If you’re interested in having your business listed, please call us at (718) 889-1560, any time. Someone will be able to help guide you through the process of adding your small business or other entry. There’s a category for everything!

Your listing displays everything: A map, vital information, photos, videos, and more details than you’ll find anywhere else.

The Staten Islander is all for supporting local small business. We reported on the shutdown, and its deleterious effects on local businesses. We reported on the changes in the vape laws last year, and how vape shops on the island were adversely affected. We’re here for you, Staten Island, and that is never going to change.

But that’s not all. We’re also interested in preserving our cultural heritage, the rich and complex tapestry that makes Staten Island such an undecipherable place. So the directory is not limited to small business, or even businesses. It’s for everything, literally.

Staten Island is a collection of towns and neighborhoods, but we all share the appellation, “Islanders.” This fifth borough of NYC, often characterized as a “sleepy town,” is anything but.

There’s actually a lot here, and a lot to do here. It’s a place to live, but so much more than that. Don’t for a minute think SI is a boring bedroom community! Far from it.

We have a small-town vibe, in a sense, but don’t be fooled. Staten Island is as cosmopolitan as it gets, with about as much culture as any other major city that’s a prime travel destination. Visitors come from all over the globe to check out our street art.

You’ll also find international tourists at the Tibetan Museum, Sung Harbor, Richmondtown, and our other incredibly interesting spots. And, of course, pizza. It’s no exaggeration to say that we have the best pizza on Earth. Naples may have invented it, but the Italian-Americans on Staten Island have perfected the pizza pie.

Staten Islander is YOUR local paper(less)! This is the place where Staten Islanders’ voices can be heard. Our editorial board is deliberately non-political and we welcome all viewpoints. We feel that the best way to Move Forward as a Nation and planet is to foster dialogue and discussion, not increased polarization and intolerance. Our articles stand the test of time and entertain, as well as edify. addressing deeper themes that are timeless.  Here you can find interesting interviews and pieces on everything Staten Island.

Staten Islanders

Staten Island has its own unique vibe, and Staten Islanders are a unique breed.

This is an island with a reputation for racism, but in actuality, it’s a rare place where people of any race will help you if you’re stuck on the side of the road with a flat tire, whether you’re White, Black, or Brown. It’s a place where neighbors of all colors, nationalities, and faiths strike up friendly conversation while waiting on line in the supermarket.

Don’t believe the hype. It’s actually a really friendly place, but at the same time, no one has time for any nonsense.

After 9-11-2001, we all helped one another. After Hurricane Sandy, the same was true. And now, after the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown, Staten Islanders are once again banding together.

It’s not rare, actually. After the death of George Floyd months ago, there were protests. There were marches. People of every color took to the streets. But unlike Brooklyn or Manhattan or many other places, there was no violence. No lootings. That says something.

There are many Conservatives on Staten Island, but that’s not the entire story. Residents with Progressive leanings also call SI home. Staten Islander does not have a “slant,” and our news service, as well as directory, is aimed at serving all Islanders.

Staten Islanders find people from elsewhere slightly ridiculous. It’s like living here somehow brings insight. Some say it’s because there’s a strong energy, that the island is a very special place. In fact, it was an important settlement for the Leni Lenape people, the Native Americans who first settled here over 12,000 years ago.

Others think it’s because we’re isolated. The Forgotten Borough. The other boroughs’ shunned step-sister.

Staten Island is a place worth visiting, and definitely a convenient and amazing place to live. Our Staten Island Community Directory aims to help both residents and visitors have an easier time making the best of their time spent here.

    Uhh…Ps. Pfieffer…Jodi?

    Where is the directory?

    I called and spoke with someone last month. They said they couldn’t help, and had no idea what I even meant.

    They transferred me to another department. That person told me they understood the dilemma.,

    Then my call was transferred again, this time DEFINITELY to the wrong team.

    Anyway, all we want is to finally get listed.

    For a place with so many employees, how is it that you can’t handle customer service properly or even put out articles with any sort of regularity.

    My entire family reads your paper. When we can. We have email notifications of new posts. We love the stories! Keep up the good work. But seriously, you guys must goof off more than any outfit I’ve ever seen.

    You’re just lucky I’m not your manager. I’d have had you people putting out story after story. You know why? I aint soft. I grew up in Brooklyn and I’m one tough cookie. I’m 76 years young, and I will kick all of your butts into shape.

    For every story I read, I’m donating a dollar. Maybe one of you can get a coffee, after a few months? Talk about laZy…

    You’re primadonnas. Just write! Stop trying to pursue these mega-big stories.

      Is this all some sort of joke?

      • Kandy Krusher Kandy Krusher says:

        Definitely trolling comment. Are you even serious in asking?

        As for the directory, I have no idea why we haven’t seen anything in six months.

      • Kandy Krusher Kandy Krusher says:

        As editor, can you explain where your directory is?

        • Avatar Mr. Mack says:

          First of all, I’m not an editor. But I’m replying anyway. I think the editor wrote that. They’re trolling their own writers. Maybe the kids just can’t get the hint and to relate to Gen Y and Z, you have to post a message online? Just a guess.

          Also, I would like to know about the directory. My family has five businesses and we’re all interested. Could we possibly get a group discount?

          These guys are definitely just running the clock on the competition.

          I’ve heard that they are about as likely to close shop as a Mars attack tomorrow at noon.

          I notice that they control the pace. The competition isn’t going anywhere, either. So…it’s not to get rid of any competitors, but rather not to waste resources.

          Staten Islander is blowing up right now. Once they hit a key metric, Im sure we’ll see a ton more articles.

          Mark my words. The team is like a team of athletes trained and waiting for a big game. At the whistle, we’ll see some real journalism.

          in the meantime, we find an e-paper that looks to be taking it easy, real easy…

          It’s cool having more than one paper on SI.
