The North Shore got a little greener today with the opening of the Stapleton Waterfront Park. Staten Island Borough President James Oddo, City Council Representative Debi Rose and Assemblyman Matthew Titone were on hand for the ribbon cutting outside the new URBY apartment complex. Life-Wire News Service photographers Anthony DiFato, Raheim Gladden and Michael Halbreich were on hand to capture the moment.
“The opening of this park nicely complements the renaissance that is taking place along the North Shore,” according to Oddo. “The park will surely become a waterfront haven thanks to its proximity to URBY and the rest of the ‘Core Four’ projects. Creating this green space is an important step in the major redevelopment that is going to transform the North Shore and increase activity along the waterfront.”
