“Staten Island Slayings: Murderers and Mysteries From the Forgotten Borough”

Description

Staten Island saw its share of violence and murder as it transformed from a sleepy community to an urban outer borough. The 1920 discovery of a woman’s body by two young boys walking their dog at West New Brighton remains unsolved. An inmate at Sailors’ Snug Harbor—a retirement home for seamen—shot a preacher in cold blood. Shocking stories of killers and their victims plagued Staten Island’s otherwise pleasant past. From the handsome soldier convicted of his Russian wife’s shooting in New Dorp Beach to the New Brighton guard beaten to death while protecting seized whiskey during Prohibition, local historian Patricia Salmon uncovers Staten Island’s most infamous tales and long-forgotten crimes of violence.
