WELCOME to the UNEXPECTED borough and the Noble Maritime Collection.

One of NYC’s most unique museums, is nestled in Building D, the second oldest Greek Revival dormitory building (1844) in Snug Harbor Cultural Center, formerly Sailors' Snug Harbor. Any sailor who served at least 10 years on an American ship was eligible to apply to live at this 160 acre self-contained retirement village, founded by Captain Robert Richard Randall in 1831.   Not only can you view paintings of marine artist John A. Noble, but you can visit his houseboat./studio or the exhibits that depict the daily life of the "Snugs", as the residents were called, including a recreation one of their dormitory rooms.  

Guest Speaker: The Noble Maritime Collection's Executive Director Ciro Galeno, Jr. will give a presentation the life of artist John A. Noble (1913-83), a brief history of Sailors' Snug Harbor, and the story of Robbins Reef Lighthouse, and its famous keeper, Katherine Walker (1848-1931).


Entrance to the museum for people of all abilities is in the BACK of building D (Look for Building E, walk to the back, turn right and walk several more feet to the museum’s back entrance.)  There is also an entrance with stairs at the front of the building on Randall Way

From the St. George Ferry Terminal - take the S40, S44 of S90 bus. It is about a 15-20 minute ride from the Ferry Terminal
