Please join APTNE on a virtual ferry ride across New York Harbor to see why Staten Island rocks! Geologist, Emily Burns, in collaboration with Mark Anderson, architect and native Staten Islander, will explore the rock formations and stone structures that make up New York City's third largest (by area) and least populous borough. This is our second virtual Building Stone Walking Tour and sixth event in this popular tour series, which has previously taken place in Providence, Boston, New Haven, Manhattan, and the Bronx & Westchester County.
