Cornelius Vanderbilt, Aaron Burr, Faber Pencils, the atomic bomb, Paul Zindel, and David Johansen all have one thing in common: Port Richmond. Many Staten Islanders flocked to Richmond Avenue, known as the Fifth Avenue of Staten Island, to shop at Garber Brothers or at Tirone's Shoes or enjoy an ice-cream soda at Stechman's. The Ritz, Palace, and Empire Theaters hosted vaudeville shows, films, rock concerts, and roller-skating. More than a dozen places of worship have been founded in Port Richmond since the late 1600s, mirroring the community's ethnic diversity. Port Richmond traces the unique contributions of each new wave of immigrants to the neighborhood.

Loved the pictures and history written. I gained a lot of knowledge about my home town. Just wish more names could have been shown of the people in the pictures but I guess that would be a tremendous job. Bought one for my brother for Christmas. I know he will love it too.
It took me back to childhood in the '40's and '50's.
Purchased the book the same time that I purchased the book on Bridesburg. Did not look as closely as I should have looked. Was expecting a section of Philadelphia south of Bridesburg.
