In common with most New Yorkers, I have never been to Staten Island, though
I have driven nonstop ACROSS it on the way to other places. I have the
vague idea that it is populated entirely by cops, I don’t know why.
I do recall seeing some statistics on crime in New York City a few years
ago. On of the conclusions of the piece was, that if you wanted NOT to be a
crime victim in NYC, the best thing to be was an 8-year-old Asian female
living on Staten Island.
