Chelsea-Travis, also referred to as Travis, or Travis-Chelsea, is a residential and industrial neighborhood located on the west central section of Staten Island, New York. A large plaza and commercial complex was built along the West Shore Expressway, and a large industrial complex, The Teleport, is located on the eastern edge of Travis, which brings commercial business and provides employment to many area residents and commuters to the area. Many connecting roads around the West Shore Expressway are also the location of commercial ventures, shops and services. Some historic business still exist, although many older homes and businesses have had to make way for new developments. Walking in the residential areas is popular for locals and their dogs, when New York's variable weather cooperates. Accessing different areas on foot can be impeded by major thoroughfares and industrial areas or undeveloped landscape. Some commercial areas are accessible to residents on foot, and large shopping areas located centrally are nearby for many residents. Staten Island weather can be cool and wet in winter and hot and humid in summer, so be prepared for extreme weather in the area, and dress appropriately for the time of year if traveling on foot.

Chelsea-Travis is a somewhat sparsely populated area of Staten Island, although major freeways and commercial and industrial areas located here contribute to traffic and hustle and bustle. The neighborhood is bordered by water on three sides, to the east, south, and west. A wildlife refuge is located on the east side and the Freshkills stream and estuary is on the south. On the west side is the tidal straight referred to as the Staten Island Sound or Arthur Kill. Located on this western waterway is a railway terminating in the community with industrial and undeveloped land that is not accessible for most residents. The West Shore Expressway runs through the center of the community, dividing the predominantly industrial western section from the commercial and residential, central and eastern areas. Flat terrain with sidewalks are common in most residential areas, and walking with your dog here or in nearby parks is a more common choice for locals than in the industrial and commercial areas.

Some large wilderness preserves and parks are located adjacent to and within Chelsea-Travis.  Independence Park is located centrally and provides locals with three acres of trees, open areas, and benches with walking paths. Schmul Park, located at the entrance to Freshkills Park provides sports fields and recreational facilities to residents. The Freshkills Park can be accessed from here, with 2,200 acres under development. When completed, the space will be a park three times the size of Central Park. This wilderness area contains the Freshkills estuary and associated waterways. This large park has miles of trails, natural areas and fascinating ecological sites with flora and fauna located on and near the freshwater estuary. Northeast of the community, the William T. Davis Wildlife Refuge is part of the developing Freshkills Park area and designed to preserve local wildlife. Meredith Woods is located to the north of the community, this area is mostly salt marsh, with fewer trees than the name suggest! It has limited accessibility for pedestrians and dogs but can be enjoyed from neighboring areas.
