Staten Island: Faber Park

Faber Park Located on what once was the first lead pencil factory in the United States, Faber Park is now being renovated as a centerpiece of community engagement in the Port Richmond neighborhood. The park includes a swimming pool, picnic area, skate park, rec center and playgrounds.

Challenges include difficult access to this park as there is no crosswalk and a dangerous main road, as well as toxics that linger from the industrial past (check out history here). Faber Park offers a unique view of the active Kill Van Kull waterway, passing ships, Bayonne Bridge and the harbor's first wind turbine.
