Many things matter about a neighborhood, but the first thing most people notice
is the way a neighborhood looks and its particular character. For example, one
might notice whether the buildings all date from a certain time period or whether
shop signs are in multiple languages. This particular neighborhood in East Hampton,
the Pantigo neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
Pantigo is a neighborhood that is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet.
Many times, such places have amenities that bring locals and visitors to the
waterfront for recreational activities or to check out the scenery.
In some densely populated areas that are less financially well-off, the neighborhood
waterfront can be relatively industrial and less open to recreation.
In addition to being coastal, Pantigo is a very nautical neighborhood,
meaning that it is somewhat historic, walkable, densely populated and
on the water. This gives the neighborhood a very nautical feel,
with some seaside and shipping feel, which some may really enjoy the sights
and sounds of.
In addition, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Pantigo neighborhood, NeighborhoodScout has discovered that much of it is vacant. In resort or second-home vacation areas, this naturally occurs because homes and apartments are seasonally occupied, and empty for a portion of the year. In non-vacation or resort areas, however, this can be an indicator of property abandonment or a weak real estate market. The vacancy rate here is 60.9%, which is higher than 99.3% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Pantigo neighborhood has more
South American and Russian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 21.5% of
this neighborhood's residents have South American ancestry and 3.8% have Russian ancestry.
Pantigo is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 3.1% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Italian at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 98.9% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
In the Pantigo neighborhood, 0.2% of people ride
a ferry to work each day. This is a very high percentage compared to most places.
In fact, NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals that this is a higher level of ferry
ridership than in 98.3% of the neighborhoods in America.

NY. If a New York retirement is in your future, this neighborhood

Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
