Join New York Adventure Club ( http://www.nyadventureclub.com/ ) for an exploration of the 216-acre Sands Point Preserve ( http://sandspointpreserveconservancy.org/ ) in Port Washington, which once served as the estate for Jay Gould, Daniel Guggenheim, the Institute of Aeronautical Sciences, and finally the United States Navy. Our unique experience at this historic property, which dates back to the early 20th century, will include: • A private tour before public-hours at the Guggenheim Falaise, Harry F. Guggenheim's French-Norman manor house that sits atop the bluffs overlooking the Long Island Sound

• An exclusive tour through public and restricted areas of the 40-room Hempstead House, a 50,000-square-foot Tudor-style castle that Financier Howard Gould (son of railroad robber baron Jay Gould) built in the early 1900s to please his wife

• Access to roam around the estate grounds, which includes Castle Gould, a private beach, formal gardens, and remnants of the abandoned casino Click here to see pictures from one of our previous trips to Sands Point Preserve!
