This southernmost Staten Island neighborhood was originally called Bentley Manor, after a ship owned by Captain Christopher Billop (the owner of the area) in the late 1600s.
The Captain was born on Staten Island and later won a bet to have Staten Island included as part of New York City, rather than New Jersey, if he could sail around the island in 24 hours.learn more about this neighborhood
