The Verrazano-Narrows bridge is the longest double-decked suspension bridge in the United States, connects Staten island to Brooklyn, and has a typo in it’s name (even if all this time you too also thought it has always been spelled with two Z’s).

The bridge was named to honor Italian explorer Giovanni da Verrazzano. He was the first European explorer to discover and enter the New York Harbor and hudson river in 1524. The Verazzano-Narrows bridge was named after him and was the largest bridge in the world when the construction was completed in 1964, surpassing the Golden gates bridge by 60 feet. Today, it is the 11th largest bridge in the world and the largest bridge in the United States. It has even been the starting point of the New York City

However, new analysis has shows that owning in most neighborhoods within the city are worth it after a short amount of time. StreetEasy has conducted a median number of years it takes for the cost of renting to equal/exceed the cost of owning within the same area, for three-hundred neighborhoods across the city.

According to StreetEasy, 59% of New Yorkers say it is financially better to buy than rent if they plan on staying in the same place for more than five years.

There is a condo complex that will be located on the 15-acre property that was once home of Mount Manresa, a Jesuit retreat.

In 2013, the Jesuits property owners decided that they wanted to sell the land. In early 2014, Savo Brothers (developers) purchased the property for $15 million. In an attempt to stop the condo development, community members petitioned for officials and even tried to have the property declared as a landmark.

Unfortunately, none of these efforts panned out and the building were set forth to begin construction, cutting down hundreds of trees, some being 400 years old! That is when Staten Island’s borough president played his card.
