Staten Island free pdf Excerpt from Staten Island: A Report by the President of the Borough of Richmond to the Mayor I had the honor of serving the City as President of this Borough over two years prior to your inauguration as Mayor, January 1, 1918, but I was very much restricted because of a deplorable attempt to settle upon this Borough a garbage reduction plant, on Fresh Kills, to receive and dispose of the garbage of Manhattan, Brooklyn and Bronx. There was but the smallest measure of home rule allowed to this Borough during the balance of that City Administration. With the advent of January 1, 1918, however, new conditions obtained which have brought about much progress and much encouragement to people desiring to make Staten Island their home, and to business men and leaders of industry desiring to take advantage of the opportunities our Borough affords. In the summer of 1918 by your orders an end was put to the garbage reduction nuisance on Fresh Kills, and your fatherly assurance was given to your people here that it never would recur. It never will recur. As an aftermath there are remaining two actions at law against me in my official capacity, now pending in the Supreme Court, claiming damages for several hundred thousand dollars, alleging in the pleadings that it was because of violent opposition by me that the enterprise was ruined, and the objectionable activities suspended. Under new conditions, and with the hearty support of the City Administration, the work of my department has been planned and carried on in a manner gratifying to our people. Staten Island Dutchmen, the first white settlers of New Amsterdam, upon their arrival, sailed past the shores and hills of Staten Island, and some of them attracted by its promising appearance decided to settle here. They found on Staten Island, rivers, creeks, bays, miles of deep water, sandy shores, and heavily wooded hills.
