S Wellwood Ave / Montauk Hwy is an urban neighborhood (based on population density) located in Lindenhurst, New York. This is a coastal neighborhood (i.e., is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet).

S Wellwood Ave / Montauk Hwy real estate is primarily made up of medium sized (three or four bedroom) to large (four, five or more bedroom) single-family homes and small apartment buildings. Most of the residential real estate is owner occupied. Many of the residences in the S Wellwood Ave / Montauk Hwy neighborhood are older, well-established, built between 1940 and 1969. A number of residences were also built before 1940.

S Wellwood Ave / Montauk Hwy has a 15.2% vacancy rate, which is well above average compared to other U.S. neighborhoods (higher than 75.1% of American neighborhoods). Most vacant housing here is vacant year round. This could either signal that there is a weak demand for real estate in the neighborhood or that large amount of new housing has been built and not yet occupied. Either way, if you live here, you may find many of the homes or apartments are empty.

Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

When you see a neighborhood for the first time, the most important thing is often the way it looks, like its homes and its setting. 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. Often such coastal places have amenities and recreational activities on the waterfront that are attractive to residents and visitors alike. In addition to being coastal, S Wellwood Ave / Montauk Hwy 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.

Notable & Unique: Diversity

Did you know that the S Wellwood Ave / Montauk Hwy neighborhood has more Italian and Greek ancestry people living in it than nearly any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 41.4% of this neighborhood's residents have Italian ancestry and 2.4% have Greek ancestry.

S Wellwood Ave / Montauk Hwy is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 6.4% of its residents five years old and above primarily speak Polish at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher than 99.6% of the neighborhoods in America.

Notable & Unique: Car Ownership

Most American households own a car or other vehicle. Many own two cars or perhaps three. In the United States, it is useful to have an automobile not only for commuting, but also for shopping and getting to other services one needs. But NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed that households in the S Wellwood Ave / Montauk Hwy neighborhood have a highly unusual car ownership. Residents of this neighborhood must really love automobiles. NeighborhoodScout's Analysis reveals that 28.9% of the households here have four, five, or more cars. That is more cars per household than in 97.0% of the neighborhoods in the nation.

Notable & Unique: Length of Commute

Regardless of the means by which residents commute, this neighborhood has a length of commute that is notable. Long commutes can be brutal. They take time, money, and energy, leaving less of you for yourself and your family. The residents of the S Wellwood Ave / Montauk Hwy neighborhood unfortunately have the distinction of having, on average, a longer commute than most any neighborhood in America. 9.3% of commuters here travel more than one hour just one-way to work. That is more than two hours per day. This percentage with two-hour + round-trip commutes is higher than NeighborhoodScout found in 96.5% of all neighborhoods in America.


The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income

There are two complementary measures for understanding the income of a neighborhood's residents: the average and the extremes. While a neighborhood may be relatively wealthy overall, it is equally important to understand the rate of people - particularly children - who are living at or below the federal poverty line, which is extremely low income. Some neighborhoods with a lower average income may actually have a lower childhood poverty rate than another with a higher average income, and this helps us understand the conditions and character of a neighborhood.

The neighbors in the S Wellwood Ave / Montauk Hwy neighborhood in Lindenhurst are wealthy, making it among the 15% highest income neighborhoods in America. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals that this neighborhood has a higher income than 87.3% of the neighborhoods in America. With 25.0% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 65.3% of U.S. neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Boston's Beacon Hill blue-blood streets, Brooklyn's Orthodox Jewish enclaves, Los Angeles' Persian neighborhoods. Each has its own culture derived primarily from the ancestries and culture of the residents who call these neighborhoods home. Likewise, each neighborhood in America has its own culture – some more unique than others – based on lifestyle, occupations, the types of households – and importantly – on the ethnicities and ancestries of the people who live in the neighborhood.
