"Not Terrible"

Not terrible. But not great either. Bay Street is like a box of chocolates. Not good, but not terrible. You might feel sick if you take it all in at once. It's big. It's cheesy, but real at the same time. Closer to the ferry terminal, things get a little more interesting. The White Castle is one of the few in the city and worth checking out. There are sharrows on the street to make life for cyclists a little easier. Overall, worth a trek out to Staten Island every once in a while to check out the changes (or not).

"Very busy!"

Bay street is a very busy street in the morning and the evening, during the daytime it is pretty quite . There are plenty of places to go there: bars, supermarkets, health related buildings, even a small park is around. It leads to the St George Ferry Terminal, and lots of busses goes through Bay St. Sometimes it is difficult for trafic there, because the are some very low visible hidden roads, and the new comer needs to be careful and pay a lot of attention on the crossing.

"Pass by and don't stop if possible."

Bay Street is a small street on staten island that starts near the Verazzano bridge and ends at the entrance for the Staten Island Ferry. The majority of the street is lined with stores such as banks, restaurants and delis.

This used to be an area where many people went to bars and clubs but that has long since passed. There is some resurgence with the Cargo cafe but mainly it's just an area to drive past to get to the ferry.

"On Bay Street"
