is a neighborhood that is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet.

In some densely populated areas that are less financially well-off, the neighborhood waterfront can be relatively industrial and less open to recreation.

This gives the neighborhood a very nautical feel, with some seaside and shipping feel, which some may really enjoy the sights and sounds of.
