The “Staten Island Boat Graveyard” is a marine scrapyard located in Arthur Kill on the northern shore of Staten Island, New York. Founded in the 1930s, it serves as a dumping ground for wrecked tugboats, barges, ferries and other vessels from all decades of the 20th century. Some of these boats have historic significance, including the submarine chaser USS PC-1264, the first World War II U.S. Navy ship to have a predominantly African-American crew and the New York City Fire Department fireboat, Abram S. Hewitt, which served as the floating command post at the 1904 sinking of the passenger ferry PS General Slocum, a disaster that killed more than 1,000 people.
