    In 1776 British Admiral Howe called a peace conference here in an effort to end the revolution. The talks failed when Howe couldn’t offer independence, and the war lasted seven more years.

    Located at the southernmost point of NY State. This expansive park has trails, a 2.5 mile beach, historic buildings, and more. One of Staten Island's Kayak Launch Points. Try to find the South Pole!

  • Visit Staten Island V.

    Site of a historic peace treaty attempt during the Revolutionary War. There are reenactments every year. Also, over 200 acres of parkland and trails to explore.

    It's haunted. I attended a seance there years ago. A very cool place to visit.

    Stroll along the beach with your beloved while the sun shines, and enjoy views of the Raritan Bay from the romantically lit pavilion after the sun sets.

    The Staten Island Peace Conference was held here on Sept 11, 1776, which unsuccessfully attempted to end the American Revolutionary War. It's the only pre-Revolutionary house still surviving in NYC.
