The 216-acre former Guggenheim Estate, now called the Sands Point Preserve, is an exhibition of past and future natural beauty, human creativity and achievement. On this site, steep cliffs overlook a mile of sandy beach directly on Long Island Sound. A sparkling pong teeming with wildlife runs from uplands almost to the coast, resulting in a melding of saltwater and freshwater species. Silent trails meander through deep woods. Walk century-old stone bridges and gaze in wonder at peerless castles and Gatsby-era country homes that are the embodiment of a golden era.
