    One of New York City’s hidden gems, Snug Harbor Cultural Center & Botanical Garden began its life in the mid-nineteenth century as a home for retired sailors. Today, the sprawling 83-acre campus is a thriving regional arts center that includes landmark buildings, lush gardens, and wide-open spaces. It’s a place where history and the arts come alive in one of the city’s most unique architectural complexes and historic landscapes.
