Building E at Snug Harbor was built in 1880 by Richard P. Smyth. Constructed in the style of both Minard Lafever and Samuel Thompson, who had adjusted Lafever’s preliminary designs for Buildings B and D, this beautiful building used to function as a dormitory building for the sailors, with an attic designed to feel like the hull of a ship. Today, Building E is out of use and in need of renovation to restore it to functionality.
