Let's walk to Snug Harbor. We will stop at a number of new structures being built in Staten Island. We will also visit "Postcards" a 9/11 memorial unlike any you may have seen.
Several years ago, I visited China and went to Suzhou to check out some of their gardens. I have to say they were quite beautiful. When I returned home, I happened to visit Snug Harbor with a friend and there I stood in the middle of a garden just like the ones that I had flown thousands of miles to see. It was the Chinese Scholars Garden at Snug Harbor! It looked as though it had been transplanted from China. I thought that it would be nice to have our group visit this wonderful center. We will also the Staten Island Museum and so much more. Let's really check out Snug Harbor Cultural Center. Admission to both the Chinese Garden & the Newhouse Museum of Contemporary Art is $8.00 Adults/$7.00 Seniors.
The Staten Island Museum admission is $8.00 Ad/$7.00 Srs.
