Getting to Staten Island is an attraction in itself. Begin your trip by boarding the free Staten Island Ferry, which you can catch at the Whitehall Terminal in Lower Manhattan. Along the way, be treated to harbor vistas and an up close view of the Statue of Liberty. When you get to the island, explore St. George, a neighborhood burgeoning with art and architecture. It’s here that you can learn all about the borough through various historic exhibitions at the Staten Island Museum or take in a Yankees minor league game at the Richmond County Bank Ballpark. Further inland, discover the Noble Maritime Collection, housing John A. Noble’s houseboat studio, where he chronicled mid-20th-century working ships and the City’s harbor. And on the same grounds, explore Snug Harbor Cultural Center, composed of historical buildings, botanical gardens and wetlands.
