Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

Some places look the same, but they only reveal their true character after living in them for a while because they contain a unique mix of occupational or cultural groups. This neighborhood is very unique in some important ways, according to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive exploration and analysis.

Notable & Unique: Real Estate

Do you like a coastal setting? If so, this neighborhood may be to your liking. The S Wellwood Ave / Montauk Hwy neighborhood is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet.
