Things to Do: Snug Harbor
I'm embarrassed to admit...before this weekend, I'd only been to Staten Island once. I know, I know, for someone who loves NYC so much, that's completely unacceptable. This weekend, I finally went back to attend an event at the Snug Harbor Cultural Center and Botanical Garden. Originally founded in the early 1800s as a home for aged sailors, today it serves as a beautiful snapshot of the New York of long ago. Alas, it was so cold--and we were so late--that we didn't get to look around, but it's officially on the KKNY must-visit list for 2011.
