Sailors' Snug Harbor: Special Micro-Episode!
Planning a wedding? Consider Snug Harbor. Gorgeous photos: guaranteed!
Here's the New York Times article about the murder- suicide. It's also a vivid example of the differences between journalistic standards then and now.
Travel Channel's "Ghost Adventurers" team went to investigate the site of the murder- suicide for themselves. You can watch a clip which is sort of hilarious because host Zak Bagans (left) has no idea what to do with his hands throughout this excerpt. Kathleen thinks the actor playing Reverend Robert A. Quinn in the re-enactment is clearly Edward James Olmos’ younger brother. (Warning: Unnecessarily grisly image at 1:19.)
Steve Warran has a great article archive about Sailors Snug Harbor, including beautiful newspaper illustrations of daily life when the sailors lived there.
