In the early 20th century, Sands Point Preserve
was the home of the Guggenheim family.
The buildings on the estate are remnants of the opulent lifestyle
for which Long Island’s North Shore was once known.
natural habitats within the Preserve include mature forest, woodlands,
fields, a freshwater pond, glacial cliffs and shoreline
on Long Island Sound.
