The term West Shore refers to the section of New York City's borough of Staten Island
that borders the Arthur Kill, between the Staten Island Expressway and the Fresh Kills. The Arthur Kill shoreline
north of the expressway — most commonly called Port Ivory — is considered part of the North Shore, while the land
along the Arthur Kill south of Fresh Kills is generally included within the South Shore.
While only one residential neighborhood — Travis — can actually be found on the West Shore, other place names are
used to identify locations to the north of Travis, chief among them Bloomfield and Chelsea.
The West Shore Expressway, which connects the Staten Island Expressway with the Richmond Parkway at the Staten
Island terminus of the Outerbridge Crossing, is the area's principal north-south thoroughfare, while the western end
of Victory Boulevard, in Travis, is its main east-west road.
Through the late 20th Century, land use in the West Shore was dominated by industrial activities (Travis was
originally named "Linoleumville" as a consequence of a linoleum factory having once been built there), most notably
oil refining and construction; in the latter example, much property in the region is devoted to the storage of heavy
equipment, such as cement mixers. In addition, a few horse stables and riding academies exist in the area, which is
the least densely populated section of Staten Island. Many species of migratory birds can be found there, and on
nearby Prall's Island.
