Staten Island /ˌstætən ˈlənd/ is ane o the five burghs o New York Ceety, in the state o New York, in the Unitit States. In the soothwast o the ceety, Staten Island is the soothmaist pairt o baith the ceety an state o New York, wi Conference House Park at the soothren tip o the island an the state.[2] The burgh is separatit frae New Jersey bi the Arthur Kill an the Kill Van Kull, an frae the rest o New York bi New York Bay. Wi a 2015 Census-estimatit population o 474,558,[1] Staten Island is the least populatit o the burghs but is the third-lairgest in aurie at 58 sq mi (150 km2). The burgh is coextensive wi Richmond Coonty, an till 1975 wis offeecially the Borough of Richmond.[3] Its flag was later chyngit tae reflect this, thou the offeecial seal remains unchyngit. Staten Island haes been sometimes cried "the forgotten burgh" bi inhabitants who feel neglectit bi the ceety govrenment.[4][5]
