Puzzle#16 Wordplay: Staten Island Sights

We have finally come to the end of our five borough cryptic clued word puzzles with the borough whose Little Leaguers are representing the Mid-Atlantic region at the Little League World Series as you read this: Staten Island.  This puzzle is like the previous four borough puzzles in that there will be nine sights in Staten Island in nine cryptic clues.  Each clue is a little word puzzle unto itself, so watch for all kinds of linguistic trickery.  The numbers  that appear in parenthesis after each clue is the number of letter in each word of the answer.  If these are a bit too tricky for you, I will put a list of the answers after a break so that you can reverse engineer each clue.  Happy Puzzling!
