Mark Cugini writes some of the finest lines ever written about Staten Island. Sincerity and Staten Island usually do not appear in the same sentence but honestly Cugini makes it work. Staten Island has forever been the punch line to nearly every joke in New York. Yet the way Cugini successfully captures the culture behind Staten Island (and yes, culture does exist there) is simply incredible.
