It’s called the Greenbelt, but it’s (happily) outgrown its belt shape.  2,800 acres of green space stretched out and through the heart of Staten Island compose the vast area known as the Greenbelt.  That’s 2,800 acres of hiking, fishing, birding, golf, archery, biking, baseball, and endless other options for amusing oneself.
