About Snug Harbor Cultural Arts Center


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. It is a place where history, architecture, visual arts, theater, dance, music and environmental science come together to provide a dynamic experience for all ages. One of the largest, ongoing adaptive reuse projects in America Snug Harbor consists of 26 historic buildings, nine distinctive botanical gardens, a two-acre urban farm, and 10 acres of wetlands on a unique 83-acre, park-like campus.

Six of Snug Harbor’s original buildings were the first to be designated as landmarks for New York City’s Landmarks Preservation Commission in 1965. These include the majestic Greek Revival-style Music Hall, one of the oldest concert halls in New York City, second only to Carnegie Hall. It serves today as a centerpiece for the performing arts. Nine distinctive gardens spread across the campus and include the celebrated New York Chinese Scholar’s Garden, the Richmond County Savings Foundation Tuscan Garden, the Connie Gretz Secret Garden, and the Healing Garden.

Snug Harbor offers programs and attractions to benefit all the residents of Staten Island and surrounding communities. It is home to Art Lab, Newhouse Center for Contemporary Art, Noble Maritime Collection, Staten Island Museum, Snug Harbor Artist Residency Program (SHARP), Staten Island Children’s Museum, Children’s Harbor Montessori School, and Staten Island Conservatory of Music. Snug Harbor is proud to be a distinguished Smithsonian affiliate.
