Princes Bay, Staten Island, NY –1927
Princes Bay is located on the southern shore of New York City's Borough of Staten Island. Considered an arm of Raritan Bay, Princes Bay includes Lemon Creek, Wolf Pond Park, Seguine Point, and the Mount Loretto Lighthouse. The community at Princes Bay was a fishing village at first and the oysters harvested there were so famous, they were found on menus at prominent seafood restaurants in New York City. Princes Bay was a natural haven for Weakfish and small Bluefish during the early years of the 20th century. With the recent resurgence of the weakfish population, Princes Bay is once again a favorite spot to fish.
