Should Staten Island (Richmond County) be part of New Jersey?

Posted by: Hawlucha

I really wish Staten Island was consolidated to NJ. The distance, culture, and [lack of] urbanization and overall economy is on par with the Garden State than the Big Apple and the other 4 boroughs. NJ'ers have easier access to the island compared to only one bridge (Verrazano) and slow ferries in and out of the rest of NYC; closure would stimulate NJ'ers to go to Staten Island for jobs and the island would be renovated entirely.

Yes, it's only part of NYC by ratification but barely gets any attention or profit from Manhattan
