This event repeats every week on Saturday between 6/30/2018 and 9/30/2018.

Now a NYC landmark designated house located within Conference House Park, the H.H. Biddle House is a grand Greek Revival building with double height porticos that sits atop clay colored bluffs overlooking the Raritan Bay and Arthur Kill waterways. Built in 1845 by Henry Hogg Biddle, who operated the Staten Island-Perth Amboy Ferry, it now houses local Tottenville historical items along with nature inspired artwork.

Thru the end of the year is an exhibit of Museum of Navigation and Communication: Immigrants-The Roots of Maritime Innovation. Also feel free to explore the adjacent terracotta garden, the beachfront and grounds of this NYC historic treasure.

Free.
