The Staten Island Bluebelt is a network of creeks and nature areas throughout Staten Island which assists with water runoff and drainage during floods and heavy rains. It is filled with wildlife, including these cute beavers who are unintentionally wreaking havoc on the neighborhood, chopping down trees and building dams that flood the area.
