Sudsy’s Bagels and Neighborhood Deli advertises itself as “At the base of the Pleasant Plains Train Station.”  The umbrella tables and chairs attract an ever-changing cast of local characters in mild weather.  Even on a chilly Autumn Sunday, the place was hopping inside.
 
The Railway is embedded in neighborhood life all along its length.  Young people often meet in the last car of a particular train and get off at an agreed-to station.

WHAT’S IN A NAME:  Pleasant Plains was given its name by officials of the Staten Island Railroad Corporation, the original owners of what today is known as the MTA Staten Island Railway.  Eventually the name was applied to the community which soon sprang up around the Station.
