The area is rich in architectural history, with houses built in the Greek Revival style, Beaux Arts style, Italianate style and Victorian style. The Snug Harbor Cultural Center and the Staten Island Botanical Gardens - non-profit organizations affiliated with the Smithsonian Institute - comprise one of New York's most extraordinary cultural destinations.

Snug Harbor homes are reminiscent of days gone by, but preserve the integrity and historical significance of the neighborhood.
