Pride Center Has Big Plans for Its New Community Center and More Stories On Staten Island

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — On this episode of the OnSI podcast… The Pride Center of Staten Island is making itself at home inside its newly opened facility in Clifton. How the community center plans to utilize its larger headquarters on Willow Avenue.

Also this month, an organic farm is now in operation on the Island’s West Shore. Wondering where it is? A hint: you need to take an elevator to get there.

Plus, this episode’s “Local Hero of the Month” is a South Shore resident who’s giving back to families who have tragically lost loved ones in the line of duty.

OnSI is made possible with funding from Tom and Suzanne Crimmins, owners of Tom Crimmins Realty, the Staten Island-based real estate firm that has made a name for itself for more than a decade as a local, independent, family-run business that knows the neighborhoods it serves.
