The Staten Island Bluebelt

The Watersheds of South Richmond

I thought it would be interesting to share an article today that isn't specifically related to opportunities in and news about Staten Island real estate, but rather to take a look at one of the Island's other fascinating features: The Staten Island Blue Belt.

I came across this interesting article from Urban Omnibus, a project of the Architectural League of New York, where they sat down with Dana Gumb, NYC Department of Environmental Conservation's Bluebelt lead manager to talk about this engineering project that tries to work with the ecology of the Island while helping to manage the reality of suburban development and the large sudden surges of water runoff created by storms.
