Description

One of New York City’s most unexpected and extraordinary destinations is located on the north shore of Staten Island, just minutes from the Staten Island Ferry. Snug Harbor is a cultural center set within an 83-acre National Historic Landmark district containing the finest collection of Greek Revival buildings in the United States, plus Beaux Arts, Italianate and Victorian style architecture. Each building has individual merit, but the harmonious effect of twenty-six historic buildings set in acres of parkland is wholly remarkable. Snug Harbor exists today because of the tireless efforts of citizens to save it from destruction a generation ago, and then to transform the deteriorated buildings of a seamen’s retirement home into a center for the arts.One of New York City’s most unexpected and extraordinary destinations is located on the north shore of Staten Island, just minutes from the Staten Island Ferry.

Sightseeing in Staten Island, New York.
Tour of The Snug Harbor Cultural Center and Botanical Garden, where you can find strange plant life and flowers, and the Chinese Scholar's Garden. Which I find locked every time that I go to see it.
Tour of the Great Kills Harbor where The Yatch Club, several restaurants, and pretty mansions are located.
