The southernmost borough, Staten Island has experienced great change in recent decades; between 1960 and 2000, Staten Island’s population doubled.

Staten Island by the Numbers


A Diversifying Economy

Employment has grown by 13 percent since 2012; three quarters of these gains were in the construction, social assistance, leisure, and hospitality sectors. Today, healthcare remains the borough’s largest employer, while major investments are being made on the borough’s north shore to create even more economic opportunity for residents.

NYCEDC and NYCDOT hosted a CRIA public forum on September 24, 2019 on Staten Island to inform the community about an upcoming resiliency project: The Raise Shorelines Travis Avenue Road Raising Project. NYCEDC will reconstruct a portion of Travis Avenue in 2020 to raise the road above the high tide point to prevent frequent flooding caused by sea level rise. If you have any questions about the street closure, please contact Victoria Giordano (NYCDOT) at [email protected] or Wil Fisher at [email protected]. Please follow this link for the presentation.
