Snug Harbor Cultural Center & Botanical Garden is the result of more than three decades of restoration and development to convert the first home for retired sailors in the United States to a regional arts center. Snug Harbor is a place where history, architecture, visual art, theater, dance, music and environmental science come together and provide dynamic experiences for all ages. It is the largest ongoing adaptive reuse project in America, consisting of 28 buildings, and is one of New York City’s unique architectural complexes and historic landscapes. Majestic Greek-revival buildings, the City’s first designated landmarks, present exhibitions on historical subjects and contemporary art.

The Music Hall at Snug Harbor is one of the oldest concert halls in the City, second only to Carnegie Hall and serves as the centerpiece for performing arts. The Botanical Gardens are spread across the site and include the celebrated New York Chinese Scholar’s Garden and Richmond County Savings Foundation Tuscan Garden, based on the 18th century garden at the Villa Gamberaia in Florence, Italy. Snug Harbor is also home to the Art Lab, the Council on the Arts & Humanities for Staten Island, the Newhouse Center for Contemporary Art, the Noble Maritime Collection, SHARP/Snug Harbor Artist Residency Program, Staten Island Children's Museum and the Staten Island Museum & Archives. Snug Harbor is proud to be a distinguished Smithsonian Affiliate. Snug Harbor has programs and attractions to benefit the more than 470,000 residents of Staten Island with humanities-based educational programming, exhibits and performances that boost annual attendance rate of over 280,000.
