Main Street Meanders Through Tough Times

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- It's the southernmost town in New York state, a place that for centuries felt a bit off the beaten track to all but those who lived there. Though the railway stops -- or starts -- in Tottenville, depending on how you view it, the community was considered "the country" long after the rest of Staten Island began to feel urban and suburban.
It was a neighborhood where hands-on oystering thrived for decades; many of its homes are still of the vintage variety and its historical society has recently raised its profile, singing the neighborhood's praises from a storefront in the village.

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. - Damaged by Hurricane Sandy in October, the roof of the 130-year-old landmarked Magyar Reformed Church was cause of concern for the Charleston church's small congregation.
The eight members had little money in its treasury, but needed to fix the roof after a tree crashed through the rear of it.
"We never thought we'd be able to do it," said Linda Hauck, president of the church council.

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- The Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) has bumped up the construction schedule for a new Staten Island Railway station in Tottenville that will replace two dilapidated South Shore platforms when completed.
About $23 million is available for construction to begin on the new "superstation" on Arthur Kill Road that will replace the Nassau and Atlantic stations when finished.
Work is set to begin in the middle of 2013 -- a year earlier than previously planned. The new station will be located on the north side of Arthur Kill Road between Lion Street and Barnard Avenue.
