From Farm to City: Staten Island, 1661-2012 highlights the history of changing land use on the island that has been an important part of the life of New York and its harbor for over 350 years. The exhibition illuminates Staten Island's varied history as home to farms and fishing ports, small towns and suburbs, resorts and estates, industry and business, parks and wetlands, and dynamic and diverse downtowns that continue to reinvent themselves. New panoramic color photographs by Jeff Chien-Hsing Liao capture the varied and often striking vistas of Staten Island today.

Venue Description: Open 7 days a week, 10am-6pm. $10; $6, seniors/students; free, 12 & under.
