Yes Staten Island is built on a landfill that was there many years ago but now you wouldn't know it if you looked even closely.

Other parts of New York City are also built on Garbage such as Thirteenth Avenue which is one of the streets in the New York City borough of Manhattan that was built on landfill in the year 1837 along the Hudson River.
