Journey along a Path Apart
the MTA Staten Island Railway is not connected to any other rail road
and reveals strong local identities all along its length
The Railway begins at the most urban part of Staten Island in the St. George Ferry Terminal . . .
. . . and ends at Tottenville the southernmost village in
New York State
across the Arthur Kill from New Jersey.
 The rail bed seeks the level as the Island’s hilly topography rises and falls along side.  
MTA Staten Island Railway makes 22 stops along a 14-mile string of small towns and whistle stops
as it travels through over three centuries of history --
from the contemporary St. George Ferry Terminal
to a 15-minute walk from The Conference House.
This 17th Century stone house at the Southernmost tip of New York State,
is famous for the Peace Conference held there on September 11, 1776
in an attempt to avert what became the American Revolutionary War.
