There is an interesting story linked to these old castles found on Glen Island Harbor Park in New Rochelle. These structures were actually a theme park in 1881 and called Starin’s Glen Island but closed after a fire killed a thousand people and the death of the owner followed shortly. Today this is all that remains of what must have been some beautiful structures .

“Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset.” —Saint Francis de Sales
