Richmond Terrace Wetlands

August 30th, 2012

Located at the southern end of Newark Bay, this undeveloped park (I didn't even realize I was standing in a park until I looked at my map) is one of the very few points of public access to Staten Island's industrial North Shore waterfront (take a look). The massive twin cranes way off in the distance belong to the Port Newark-Elizabeth Marine Terminal, the metropolitan area's main container ship facility.

    I’m definitely going to suggest this place to the next person who says “this park is pretty nice, but could use a few more rotting hulks of old barges”.

    I gotta look into this one…
