To ensure a bright and sustainable future for Snug Harbor, we must be stewards of this prominent city-owned property and its historically influential assets; maintain longterm accessibility and affordability of the arts, culture, and outdoor space; and benefit the community on Staten Island and beyond. To this end, the City commissioned a master plan executed in 2019.
NYC's first five designated Landmarks are at Snug Harbor.
Creating a Central Hub
A pedestrian-only Chapel
Road will showcase the
eclectic, vibrant functions
previously confined by walls.
Orange path encourages discovery with a network
of walkways and perimeter campus loop.
View of the new stage pavilion
The Loop Walkway System
is a vital wayfinding
intervention within the
campus. A Primary Loop,
circumnavigates the site
and touches all of the
major program areas,
parking and entry points.
View of the Heritage Farm
Heritage Farm, established in 2012, has emerged as an
important partner in Snug Harbor’s mission. Proposed
changes will amplify the visibility and scale of progressive
farm practices on campus. Responsible agriculture,
with its deep history on campus, its impact on the
environment, and its programmatic synergies can take
a larger role at Snug Harbor.
The Snug Harbor Marvel Dome
The Snug Harbor Marvel Dome is a playful gesture to the organization’s future and intended to provide clarity to the visitor experience while on campus.
The dome, a derivative of the Buckminster Fuller Dome developed by an American engineer, architect and futurist R. Buckminster Fuller (1895-1983), is a spherical space-frame 3-D sculpture that’s composed of an interwoven network of modular struts to create a self-bracing framework.
