Site Description[1] 
The site is located in the northeastern St. George Section of Staten Island and consists of approximately 52 acres of shoreline property, of which 26 acres comprise upland area and the remaining 26 acres are located under water. The site is a long and relatively narrow parcel of land which is bordered to the east by an access road and parking lot, to the west by a narrow parcel of vacant land, to the north by the Kill Van Kull and New York Harbor, and to the south by Richmond Terrace, with a retaining wall separating the two. The area is highly developed with residences and small commercial buildings. For many years the site has been used as a rail yard site adjacent to the Staten Island Ferry Terminal in St. George, Staten Island. The site used to be contaminated with metals at high concentrations. The eastern portion of the site used to be contaminated with polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and the northern and eastern portions used to be contaminated with petroleum products. Since 1989, several environmental investigations were completed at the site. Investigations were conducted between 1989 and 1995, and between 1998 and 2000. Remedial activities were conducted between 2000 and 2002 and included the following: soil/sediment remediation activities (hot spot removals and capping with clean fill), petroleum tank removals, electrical transformer removals, groundwater monitoring activities, methane gas venting and monitoring activities, the establishment of institutional controls, and activities related to health and safety issues (e.g., dust monitoring). A minor league baseball stadium has been built on the Site with other associated uses.

Site Environmental Assessment
The site used to be contaminated with metals at high concentrations. The eastern portion of the site used to be contaminated with polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and the northern and eastern portions used to be contaminated with petroleum products. Following completion of the remedial activites, the site poses no threat to human health or the environment and is suitable for use as a stadium. Remedial activities were conducted between 2000 and 2002 and included the following: soil/sediment remediation activities (hot spot removals and capping with clean fill), petroleum tank removals, electrical transformer removals, groundwater monitoring activities, methane gas venting and monitoring activities, the establishment of institutional controls, and activities related to health and safety issues (e.g., dust monitoring). The site remediation was completed in 2006.

Site Health Assessment
Remediation of the site has minimized the potential for exposures. Arsenic-contaminated soil and lead-contaminated sediments were excavated and disposed off-site. Buildings, pavement and clean soil prevent direct contact with residually contaminated soils. Groundwater is not used as a source for drinking water, therefore exposures are unlikely.
