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…

Would you dare move into a house where a murder of six people took place? The house known as the “Amityville Horror” is currently on the market for $850,000.

Located in Long Island, this 1927 Dutch colonial home is a waterfront property with five bedrooms and four bedrooms, boasting a formal dining room, heated sun room, and a large boat house. Included with this home is a frightful history that inspired a novel and horror films.

In 1974, the home was the scene of six murders. Ronald DeFeo Jr, who was 23 years old at the time, shot and killed his parents and four siblings as they were sleeping. DeFeo is currently serving 25 years to life in the Green Haven Correctional Facility in Stormville, New York.

One year after the murders, George…

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.

James Oddo has been campaigning against the development from the start. As a city councilman…
