50th City Council District


Hurricane Sandy slammed into this part of Staten Island with a vengeance. Some experts estimated that 3,000 Staten Islanders were displaced from the storm. The majority of those lived in the 50th district, or the “Mid-Island”, which includes a small part of Brooklyn and the entire middle of Staten Island, from its heavily populated east coast to its more industrial west coast. Over the past three decades, new townhouse development has been intense along this district’s eastern coast.
