“Great place to walk around”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

Snug Harbor is an excellent gem on Staten Island. Filled with history and beauty, it's a great place for a stroll and a sample of historical atmosphere on the SI. Nothing beats walking around on a great fall or spring day! It's great in the winter and summer, but I prefer the other months for its beauty.

“A hidden gem on Staten Island's North Shore”
Reviewed May 26, 2012

I feel very fortunate to live within walking distance to this little patch of heaven. My husband and I frequently enjoy its verdant 83 acres and are thankful Jackie O. found saving this historic property worth her attention.
