There is always something happening in Richmondtown. Whether the fairs, or cook offs, or Holidays. Fun place to visit, with a history lesson. My favorite is Christmas in Richmondtown. Great for Adults and children of all ages.

We arrived later, so it was a quick visit and we did not see as much as we would like to see. Buildings interesting and representative of the history of Staten Island. Go upstairs in courthouse.
