Lights Galore in Staten Island

By Linda Tancs

A world of light is waiting for you at Staten Island’s Snug Harbor Cultural Center & Botanical Garden. That’s where the stunning NYC Winter Lantern Festival is taking place until January 5. Over 1,000 lanterns will be on display over eight acres, sculpted into magnificent displays. The event also features a skating rink and cultural performances like a Tibetan folk dance and a form of Chinese Sichuan opera. Take the free Staten Island ferry from Lower Manhattan; free shuttles will transport you from the ferry terminal to the event.
