Snug Harbor Cultural Center & Botanical Garden Free Admission Friday
Free Admission Friday at Snug Harbor Cultural Center Botanical Garden - see INFO below. OUR MISSION: To provide a vibrant, regional cultural destination that offers dynamic programming in arts, education, horticulture, agriculture, and recreation for diverse cultures and all ages while ensuring a well-managed campus for all residents of Staten Island and surrounding communities. Snug Harbor Cultural Center Botanical Garden is the result of more than four decades of restoration and development to convert a 19th century charitable rest home for sailors to a regional arts center, botanical gardens, and public park. It is a place where history, architecture, gardens, agriculture, visual and performing arts, and education come together to provide a dynamic experience for all ages. One of the largest ongoing adaptive reuse projects in America, Snug Harbor consists of 28 buildings, fourteen distinctive botanical gardens, a two acre urban farm, wetlands and park land on a unique, free, open campus. Six of Snug Harbors original structures were the first designated landmarks for New York Citys Landmarks Preservation Commission in 1965, including the majestic Main Hall (built in 1833) and Music Hall (built in 1892), one of the oldest concert halls in New York City. Fourteen distinctive gardens spread across the campus and include the celebrated New York Chinese Scholars Garden and the Richmond County Savings Foundation Tuscan Garden.
