The least populous and most suburban of the city’s five boroughs, Staten Island offers open spaces, hilltop views, and, of course, a famous ferry ride. Leaving the ferry landing, visitors might head for Richmondtown Restoration, where early American life is brought to life in a historic setting, the Alice Austen House, home of a pioneering photojournalist now a museum with spectacular views, or the Jacques Marchais Museum of Tibetan Art, the finest collection of art from the Himalayan kingdom in the US.
Snug Harbor Cultural Center is one of SI's centerpieces. It is truly unique! And soon, the SI Museum will call it home in addition to the Chinese Scholar's Garden, SI Botanic Gardens, Music Hall, Art Galleries, Art Lab, Children's Museum, Firefighter's Memorial, etc. If you haven't had the opportunity to visit it, please feel free to contact me and I shall give you a personal tour.
