Anyone interested in knowing more about Staten Island than the ferry won't want to miss A WALK AROUND STATEN ISLAND WITH DAVID HARTMAN AND BARRY LEWIS, a surprise-filled special premiering Monday, December 3 at 9:30 p.m. In A WALK AROUND STATEN ISLAND, Hartman and Lewis explore 300 years of history, Asian arts, mansions, beaches, personalities, hidden gems, and the best local pizza. Find out who's tilling the land at the old Decker Farm, discover one of America's oldest free black communities, learn who really invented the telephone, and find out what the future holds for that former landfill. Viewers will discover a borough that won't soon be forgotten. The Website is now online at http://www.thirteen.org/statenisland. In addition clips of the program, there are additional video segments, an interactive map, and feature articles.
