The neighborhood's name derives from Captain Robert Randall, who founded Sailors' Snug Harbor, an assortment of architecturally prominent houses from the 19th century. Randall initially founded it as a care center for elderly seamen in 1801. Two centuries later, Sailors' Snug Harbor still stands in the northern section of Randall Manor, along the Kill Van Kull. Today, the location is often referred to as the Snug Harbor Cultural Center and Botanical Garden, offering visitors a blast to the past with beautifully historic architecture, antique fountains, extensive gardens, and a maritime history museum.Find Randall Manor apartments
