STATEN ISLAND, NY MAY 21, 2019 – The Staten Island Chamber of Commerce will host the “Downtown Staten Island Culture Course” for walkers and runners on Saturday, June 15 at 10:00am, to highlight North Shore businesses and cultural attractions along the Bay Street Corridor and Richmond Terrace.
The course will begin at Fort Wadsworth and end at Snug Harbor Cultural Center covering about 7 miles of Staten Island’s North Shore. Walkers and runners will have the chance to discover “The Unexpected Borough of New York City” passing by multiple cultural locations including Garibaldi-Meucci Museum, Sri Lankan Art & Cultural Museum, Alice Austen House, the Museum of Maritime Navigation & Communication, the National Lighthouse Museum and more.
Participants are encouraged to take a selfie in front of these locations and post using the hashtags #DowntownSICultureCourse and #VisitStatenIsland for a chance to win some “Downtown Staten Island” branded gear.
This is a FREE event, but registration is limited and required to participate. Participants can register online at EventBrite here.
The Chamber is presenting the run/walk as part of its work supporting the commercial corridors of Stapleton, Tompkinsville, and St. George through the NYC Department of Small Business Services’ Neighborhood 360° Grant Program, which was created to identify, develop, and launch commercial revitalization projects in partnership with local stakeholders. This event is made possible through the collaboration of the Staten Island Chamber of Commerce, NYC Department of Small Business Services, Office of Borough President James Oddo, NYC Parks Department, Staten Island Running Association, Empire Graphics, and Visit Staten Island.
