So you live in New York City and yet rarely connect with the history and geography of the place? This is a group for people who would enjoy destinations both brag-worthy and humble. Future planned destinations include the Staten Island Museum, Brooklyn Museum, Noguchi Museum, walking the High Bridge over the Harlem River (oldest bridge in NYC), the Queens County Farm Museum, art galleries in lower Manhattan, burlesque shows, brunch, and sailing. Yes sailing! I have a sailboat and am always looking for fun loving but responsible crew.
It's not the Met, but that's the point! The Staten Island Museum is the place for exploring the dynamic connection between natural science, art and history since 1881. Staten Island Museum’s permanent collections and archives encompass the fields of Art, Natural Science, and History. The Natural Science and History Collections and Archives are mainly dedicated to learning about and exploring Staten Island’s archaeological, environmental, and historical past. The Art Collection contains a vast array of artwork that spans from ancient civilizations to present works by Staten Islanders. The museum is at Snug Harbor 1000 Richmond Terrace, Building A. We will have an opportunity to snack on the ferry, then take the S40 bus to snug Harbor. Afterwards there is the option of having food and drinks at Karl's Klipper Restaurant.
Be ready to take photos from the ferry. Bring a Metro card with at least $10 on it or be ready to walk a bit.
We will meet at the Staten Island Ferry Terminal, upstairs on the left. The ferry runs every half hour. https://www.siferry.com/schedules.html
