Building A

February 1st, 2014

Completed in 1879, this former dormitory is the westernmost of the five imposing Greek Revival structures on Snug Harbor's front line, all of which were built as residences for the retired sailors who lived at the institution. Building A is currently being transformed into a new home for the Staten Island Museum. (The museum, as we've learned, has the world's second-largest collection of cicadas!)
