For most visitors to NYC, Staten Island does not really inspire a desire to take the time to visit, but if/when you are sick of the gritty, crowded vibe of Manhattan and need some R&R, head over to Staten Island on the FREE ferry near Battery Park and take a short bus ride to Snug Harbor!

Beautiful grounds, nice dining nearby. So much work has been done on this very historical destination. There is always a wonderful exhibit to visit. Easily accessible by public transportation from the ferry.

Snug Harbor is absolutely LOVELY. Staten Island has many hidden gems but this is one of the finest. It has the charm of Central Park but without all of the people. You feel like you're in a different world there. My husband and I were fortunate enough to be able to take some of our wedding photos there. I believed... More

A nice place for tourists to visit. It's a short bus ride from the Staten Island Ferry. The grounds are beautiful.

Snug Harbor has lovely grounds: a small Botanical Garden, the Chinese Scholar's Garden, and the Children's Museum. It's lovely Spring, Summer and Autumn. Children will love the Grounds. There's also a lovely fountain.

Snug Harbor encompases numerous historical buildings once used as retirement home for sailors. Within the grounds there are several interesting venues: The Noble Collection Museum, the Childrens Museum, Botanical Gardens, Galleries and workshops. In all the area is very serene.

Snug Harbor is the cultural center of Staten Island. Once you get off the ferry, it is a short bus ride away. The grounds was originally a retirement home for sailors. It now houses museums, a Chinese Scholar Garden, small botanical center. It is a serene relaxing getaway from the hustle and bustle of Manhattan. There is no fee to... More

Went to Staten Island on the ferry from Manhattan and found this place. Lovely collection of 19th century building, once a sailors home but is now a cultural centre. It has museums and art galleries, workshops and a botanical garden. Even the surrounding streets look nice. I went in November so perhaps I did not see it at its best... More

This is a collection of buildings that include museums, a theater and the botanical garden. You can walk from one to another very easily. Its a good place to go with the family, as it is beautiful and educational. The ferry is the best way to get there from out of Staten Island. Some are free and others have a... More
