It is located in a mixed industrial, commercial, and residential area along the southern shoreline of the Kill Van Kull in the northwest section of Staten Island. The site is located at 2901-2945 Richmond Terrace, Staten Island, NY 10303, and is identified as Tax Block 1205, Lot 27 and Lot 100, and Block 1206, Lot 1. Richmond Terrace borders the site to the south, and the Kill Van Kull borders the site to the north. Two industrial properties border the site to the east and west. The site is zoned as a T2 transportation facility with no landmark status. The site is 19.30 acres, with 12.05 acres under water. The site was formerly occupied by First Marine Shipyard which consisted of 13 principal buildings. These have been demolished. The site is currently used for storage of concrete.

Site Environmental Assessment
Contaminants of concern are petroleum and metals. Impacted media are soil, groundwater, and sediments. A portion of the site will be restored to wetland.
Site Health Assessment
The site is an active industrial facility. Metals and PCB contaminated soils have been identified in several areas on the property. Most contaminated soils will be excavated and disposed off off-site and a demarcation layer and concrete cap will be placed over the entire site to prevent direct contact exposures. The area is served by public water. The NYSDOH and NYSDEC will be evaluating the need to conduct additional investigations to determine the potential for soil vapor intrusion into structures on or near the site.
