The website Staten Island Lifestyle launched just under ten years ago, highlighting things to do on the island.

Realtor Kristina Gershteyn used the website as a way to introduce potential home buyers to the borough.

Now it is getting a make over.

Since its success on social media, the blog is taking a digital approach.

Staten Island Lifestyle will now make videos highlighting positive aspects of the community as well as the culture and history of the island.


"It is important to us to build a positive image of our community and we wanted to be a place and a platform to bring people together and build relationships and connect and promote our island" said  Kristina Gershteyn, the creator of Staten Island Lifestyle.


Currently Staten Island Lifestyle is working on a "Winter in Staten Island" video.

In the future they hope to collaborate with local artists and community groups so they can also contribute to the blog.
