Brighton Heights, Staten Island Community
Staten Island was almost part of New Jersey but for the navigational skills of British Captain Christopher Billopp. Legend has it that the Duke of York decided to settle a New York/New Jersey turf war over the islands in the New York Harbor by a boat race. The Duke stated that any islands that could be circumnavigated in under 24 hours would belong to New York, and the others would go to New Jersey. Billopp rose to the challenge and sailed around Staten Island in 23 hours. Of course, historians have never been able to confirm the accuracy of the tale, but why let facts get in the way of a good story?
Originally called Richmond after Charles Lennox, 1st Duke of Richmond (and son to King Charles II of England with his mistress, Louise de Kéroualle, duchess of Portsmouth), Staten Island was renamed Staten Island in 1975. So if you’re new to the area, and wondering why there are so many "Richmond" signs around, now you know.
Staten Island has seen more than its share of excitement over the years, as the home of a number of La Cosa Nostra gangsters. Paul Castellano, Gambino family mob boss, lived in a mansion on Todt Hill. John Gotti started his career with a 1973 murder in Snoope’s Bar in West Brighton, and the infamous Charles "Lucky" Luciano barely escaped with his life after visiting Staten Island in 1929.
Brighton Heights specifically was the location of a smallpox quarantine station in the 1800s. The governor of New York State, Daniel D. Tompkins moved to Staten Island in 1814 and bought hundreds of acres surrounding the quarantine station and became friends with Rev. Peter I. Van Pelt who conducted services at the station. Tompkins went on to become Vice President under James Monroe, and he donated the land he'd purchased so that a proper church could be constructed. The Brighton Heights Reformed Church is still in existence today.
