We took the subway to the Staten Island Ferry, enjoyed the ride, then boarded a bus to RIchmond. Little did we know the bus was winding around cow paths and dozens of stops to Richmond. So that was a boring hour with little to see.
Richmond is a collection of houses and shops moved from around the island to this location. For the $8 fee late in the day, we were almost forgotten since we were the only 3 people in the 'tour'. But Michael showed up and gave us a great personal tour of the old buildings, the country store, the schoolhouse, etc. Long story short, this place would be packed with tourists if it weren't so hard to get to from NYC. Before taking the bus, find out what a taxi costs to get there. Getting back there wont be any taxis unless you call for one.
