The Sailors' Snug Harbor: Safe Haven for Aging Mariners

Record #:
In 1801, ship's master and Revolutionary War hero, Captain Robert Richard Randell, bequeathed his 21-acre Manhattan estate to a perpetual trust for a home for retired and disabled sailors. The home, Sailors' Snug Harbor, remained in Staten Island until 1976, when it relocated to Carteret County. The 100,000-square-foot facility employs over one hundred and provides care, activities, and housing for men and women mariners. The retirement home is located on Nelson's Bay in Sea Level.
