The plot of land was first inhabited by European settlers in 1651 and later became a popular watering hole for sailors who were celebrating their successful voyages across the Atlantic Ocean.
The island was formerly owned by showman Billy Rose and has played host to such legends as Marilyn Monroe and Barbara Streisand.
