9. Snug Harbor Cultural Center

Snug Harbor Cultural Center, located at 1000 Richmond Avenue in Staten Island is a hidden gem. This landmark was created by Robert Richard Randall as a “haven for aged, decrepit and worn out sailors” in 1801. A slow decline during the 20th century caused many of the original building to deteriorate. However, a group of artists rallied together to renovate and refurbish Snug Harbor. The music hall is the second oldest music hall in New York City. It is now a haven for the residents of Staten Island and their Botanical Garden. Past productions include West Side Story and Godspell.
