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

waterfront can be relatively industrial and less open to recreation.
In addition to being coastal, Aquebogue / Jamesport 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, vacant homes and apartments are a significant characteristic of this neighborhood. In fact, with 34.4% of the residential real estate vacant, the Aquebogue / Jamesport neighborhood claims the distinction of having a higher vacancy rate than 95.9% of the neighborhoods in America.
