Fun fact: Port Ivory was actually named for soap. You know, Ivory soap, the white one that floats? Procter & Gamble manufactured this soap from 1907-1991 and was a major employer in the area.
The Goethals Bridge runs right into Port Ivory, and rumor has it you can tell by your nose when you’re getting close to the end of the bridge. An average of 1.2 million cars travel between Staten Island and Elizabeth NJ monthly, and it takes about 3 minutes to traverse the 1.5 mile bridge in normal traffic. Meanwhile, pedestrians and bicyclists can use a shared path over the bridge. Goethals Bridge was built simultaneously with Outerbridge Crossing, and both bridges opened in 1928. The bridge was designed to allow large ships to sail underneath it up the Arthur Kill.

Whether it’s blowing in up the Hudson River or across the Kill Van Kull or the Arthur Kill, if you live on Staten Island, you’ll have to contend with the weather. You get to experience the full gamut of seasons, and you need the clothing, blankets and equipment to deal with these. If you’re new to the area, here’s a little primer on what the weather is like in NYC. Bulky comforters, warm clothing and snow tires can take up a lot of space, so a self-storage unit can be a big help.
And all those temperature fluctuations can be hard on furniture, clothing and other valuables, so you should consider investing in a climate-controlled unit. These units are never too hot or too cold, which prevents wood from warping, stops mildew from developing and protects all your photos, documents and fragile items.
It can be tough starting out in business in NYC, especially if you’re a small business owner with big ambition. Let’s face it, Big Apple commercial space carries big price tags, but if you can make it there … you know the rest. Did you know that a self-storage unit could be a great alternative as you build your business? You can store inventory, supplies, office equipment, materials and documentation for a fraction of the cost of commercial space and have access to it seven days a week.
