Fifty years ago, the Staten Island Museum played a key role in saving Snug Harbor, which was built in the 19th century as a retirement community for sailors, and transforming it into a thriving cultural center. This month the Staten Island Museum Expands to Snug Harbor, by opening “new” quarters of its own in the complex, a LEED-certified retrofit of a historic 1879 Greek Revival dormitory building. Inaugural exhibitions explore Staten Island’s history and natural environment as well as work by local artists.
