If you were to travel all the way to the south end of Staten Island, you would end up at the southern most point of New York. Also, at this point called the Conference House, an historic house named to honor and commemoration of the famous peace conference of 1776.
Both places are right in my backyard and are very beautiful. When you see it for your self, you forget that your still in the city. As you can see below, Staten Island Has a lot to offer.
