The history of Sailors' Snug Harbor extends back to 1801 when New York tycoon Captain Robert Richard Randall built the first institution to care for "aged, decrepit and worn-out" sailors. Over the course of the century the institution grew to include 26 jewels of Victorian design in a variety of styles. The row of cottages, one of which is shown here, are typical Victorian eclectic designs incorporating elements from several styles including Italianate, Queen Anne and a French inspired "Mansard" roof.
