Our favorites here include the profoundly beautiful Chinese Scholar's Garden and the Staten Island Botanical Garden. You can also frequently find interesting art exhibits here as well as musical concerts. It's a shame that Cafe Botanica no longer has a presence here: it was a great place to have a sandwich or salad after working up an appetite from roaming around this extensive facility. There are several beautiful old buildings left over from the days when these were the grounds of Sailors' Snug Harbor, a retirement facility for old sailors. There is a lot of potential here and we're looking forward to future developments including a new location for the Staten Island Museum of Arts and Sciences.
