Hidden in my backyard – Silver Lake

I have lived on Staten Island my whole life, but despite that, there are still many different places on this Island that I have not been. This is true for a lot of Islanders, as there is just so much here and a lot of it is not well known.

Today, with a friend, I went and visited a place I never knew existed called Silver Lake Park.

Silver Lake Park is not a place that is hidden away, but in fact, is located at the crossing of two main roads on Staten Island. The reason I never knew of it was due to me not travailing much in that part of the island. Thought the other day while I was driving for my work I happened to drive right past it. I was both surprised and amazed when I drove by to see a large body of water glimmering in the sun and I knew that I need to come back and see it again.

That is just what I did over my Labor Day weekend. I took some pictures but the weather wasn’t the best nor did I have my good camera with me, but still you can see just a little of the beauty that this park has. These pictures do the park no justice.

I’m going to try and find more cool places like this, and then share them with the world!
