North Shore

The slow, reluctant beginnings of Staten Island's integration into the metropolis on New York City.

Please join us for the opening reception at the Alice Austen House Museum, 1 Hyland Blvd, Staten Island. September 16th, 2017 from 3-5pm.

It is no secret to the residents of Staten Island that they find themselves in a moment of transition. There is a tide of change on the north shore that has affected families and communities in the ways they live, congregate and think about Staten Island. It is, of course, too soon to know the impact that these changes might have, but these images begin to trace some of the narratives of families and communities on the north shore.
