  • Thank you to all my patrons for making a video like this possible. patreon.com/cgpgrey

    • Grey I don’t know why they wanted Staten Island it’s the biggest shithole ever I hate it here

    • CGP Grey How much time have you spent on this thing 😂😂😂 Good work~!

    • 10 points for the Peak Design bag!

    • CGP Grey I found the bee. Maybe considering more minecraft bee next time

  • So... I'm a born and raised staten islander, and I'm just going to apologize for the absolute merry go round we have put you through. I remember that rainstorm though! We call that house the Conference House and the grounds around it are actually quite nice. Theres also a Historic Richmond town which is kind of underwhelming but sort of tells a little history of the island as well.

  • My next question is, was it legit? Mathematically could someone sail that much in 24 hours in a boat of that time? Also, I don't want to sound mean but.... I'm thinking it's missing for a very good reason. Like, New York is hiding something XD

  • This video made me laugh way harder than i thought I would.

  • If only he could put his understanding of history towards curing cancer or something smh.

  • he really flew all the way to New York to not find a book he knew wasn't there. im impressed

  • You are officially a "History MythBuster" now … you should do this more often :D

  • This is quality storytelling!

  • I live in staten island

  • I live in Staten Island. Let me know if you’d like me to go there to ask them some questions.

  • Reminder a RO-tvr is running for Congress in Staten Island.

  • Am I the only one who clicked off before it cut to his flight to NY thinking it was over?

  • well we may not know the exact history of what happened but one thing we can say with absolutely certainty is that Wu Tang clan aint nun to fuck with!

  • I miss my Island...

  • his laugh sounds like he's on his way to madness all it takes is one bad day...and a little push.

  • THE👏AMOUNT👏 OF👏 DEDICATION👏

  • That was so oddly fascinating to follow. I love this channel.

  • What a hero. I wish all people were this dangerously curious.

  • lol, people actually WANTED staten island?!?!????!?!??!?!?!?!

  • I live in Staten Island fuck this place

  • 4:28 *_"ON WIKIPEDIA AND THE NEW YORK TIMES..."_* Lol why are you using Wikipedia and a newspaper with no bibliography

  • Historical records about a guy on a boat: Isn't around CGP Grey: I don't need sleep, I need answers!

  • 7:39 what a cut/fade to Black - and revival I happily laugh long seconds about it. So much history diving for not only an interessting Story, but an historicall fact proved one. Which is rare to see by youtubers (which I use as an insult for every channel sticking their face-in-the-camera-commentors they never explore themselves, only for click and fame). Sorry! I mean never seen by youtubers (Selbstdarsteller) - CGP Grey belongs more to Journalism.

  • Oral history isn't history? That's an...unconventional take.

  • Your best video.

  • 2:16 Another Reservation hint. It’s too hard to understand and I see why he doesn’t want too

  • Can someone explain the ending?

  • Thank you, Grey, for doing so much for this video.

  • You obsessed son of a bitch. Keep it up.

  • During this I forgot what we where trying to find out

  • 11 minutes and 6 seconds of Grey slowly going insane.

  • (confusion) what im getting isNew Jersey, stinky state and New York, 9/11 state dont like eachothet

  • Interested in learning new and awesome stuff? Check out his channel: ro-tv.com/ch/UC6fVZl5Mnuuex7G06qdczrA It's content includes history, mythology, economics and folk tales. And he plans on uploading every week. Its pretty awesome tbh

  • That is incredible. About a month ago I was across that tip of Staten Island scanning that very same beach you sit on at the end wondering about what lied within that thick forest on the edge of New York City. (I can even see where I was!) Nice to know that only ghosts, graves, and rainbows were there. Wait, I can actually check the dates off of Greys phone (dates for when the manor was closed) and check them for when that party was going on. It was even an equally stormy day that day!

  • Ok?

  • Absolute mad lad

  • why didn't you just get a hotel and wait for the museum to open or something

    • By this time, I'm pretty sure he had already gone insane from the amount of stupid research he had done to the point he didn't care about answers. He would have dedicated too much to something so miniscule, plus he had his own life.

  • Amazing! I would love to see more like this but I’m afraid what it might do to you. :)

  • Where’s my people who lives in Staten Island 🙌

    • Dont live but heres thumbs is a up anyway ☺

  • Is Newyork covering it up?

  • Guess that's the end of the rainbow, huh.

  • Uncovers story about New York vs. New Jersey... CPG Grey: It’s my REALLY EXCLUSIVE JURISDICTION!

  • Oh you poor soul...

  • CGP pulled a Nick Robinson here and booked a trip out of pure curiosity.

  • Hey man...we need something , give us a break

  • It’s like mythology

  • GREY YOU ABSOLUTE MADMAN

  • Are you the real life Nathan Drake?

  • Ты крут. Столько всего сделал. 👍

  • I had to subscribe!This guy who isnt even from jersey or ny is so interested in the history that he ignored the storm warning and got soaked trying to find more ....thanks for the efforts

  • You put so much work in this ... nice job 🙂👍

  • Staten Island the last and only county for president Trump,...

  • Ye olde meme

  • being a historian must be such a fucking headache lmao love the work though this is great

  • how are you animations so expressive? wth?

  • I wish staten island was still the forgotten borough

  • Grey looking back at this video:Well,that escalated quickly.

  • I am just waiting for Part 2 where CGP Grey goes and gets a time machine to go back and witness the race first hand... or that lack of a race... then just so the trip wasn't wasted he travels forwards July 9th 1868 so that he can kill Disosway personally.

    • Somehow I get the impression that he will also end up doing some testing to find out if you could sail round the island(s) in a ship of the day in the supposed time.

  • A subtle little joke mixed with alliteration around 1:17 : "hometown historians happily Honor hometown heroes." I liked that slight emphasis on the usually silent h in "honor."

  • i have 2 subs my son has 5 subs
