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 Montauk Hwy / Snedecor Ave 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, Montauk Hwy / Snedecor Ave 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, one way that the Montauk Hwy / Snedecor Ave neighborhood really stands out, is that it has more large 4, 5, or additional bedroom homes and real estate than 97.0% of the neighborhoods in America. When you walk or drive around this neighborhood, you'll instantly notice the size of the homes here which definitely makes a strong visual statement.

Furthermore, the Montauk Hwy / Snedecor Ave neighborhood has earned the amazing distinction of having one of the highest rates of detached, single-family homes of any neighborhood in the U.S. With 97.6% of the residential real estate here made up of free-standing single-family homes, there is a greater proportion of single-family homes here than in 96.4% of all neighborhoods in America.

Notable & Unique: Diversity

Did you know that the Montauk Hwy / Snedecor Ave neighborhood has more Italian and Irish ancestry people living in it than nearly any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 44.5% of this neighborhood's residents have Italian ancestry and 36.0% have Irish ancestry.

Montauk Hwy / Snedecor Ave is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 0.2% of its residents five years old and above primarily speak Yiddish at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher than 98.1% of the neighborhoods in America.

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 Montauk Hwy / Snedecor Ave neighborhood unfortunately have the distinction of having, on average, a longer commute than most any neighborhood in America. 12.9% 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 98.8% of all neighborhoods in America.

Notable & Unique: People

Wealth makes most things in life easier, and a few things harder. If you are wealthy and enjoy keeping up with the Jones', this neighborhood will interest you. In fact, according to NeighborhoodScout's research, the Montauk Hwy / Snedecor Ave neighborhood is wealthier than 98.2% of the neighborhoods in the United States. Residents here are truly in a unique situation even when compared to other Americans, based on the sheer amount of wealth concentrated here. Even in times of economic downturn, residents of this neighborhood, as a group, suffered less and recovered more quickly. This is indeed a stand-out characteristic of this neighborhood.

In addition, think about the people you know personally. How many of them would purchase box seats to opening night at the symphony? How many of them regularly attend gallery openings, or are the first to reserve tickets to opening night at the ballet? If they're like most of us, they don't do any of these things. But if you're among an exclusive crowd of wealthy and refined patrons of the arts, then you'll feel right at home in the Montauk Hwy / Snedecor Ave neighborhood: a neighborhood in which more "urban sophisticates" live than 96.0% of neighborhoods across the U.S. Here, your neighbors are defined as having urbane tastes in literature, music, live theatre and the arts. They are wealthy, educated, travel in style, and live a big city lifestyle whether or not they live in or near a big city. In addition to being an excellent choice for urban sophisticates, this neighborhood is also a very good choice for families with school-aged children, highly educated executives and active retirees.

Notable & Unique: Car Ownership

American households most often have a car, and regularly they have two or three. But households in the Montauk Hwy / Snedecor Ave neighborhood buck this trend. Residents of this neighborhood must really love automobiles. NeighborhoodScout's Analysis reveals that 26.7% of the households here have four, five, or more cars. That is more cars per household than in 95.4% of the neighborhoods in the nation.


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 Montauk Hwy / Snedecor Ave neighborhood in West Islip 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 98.2% of the neighborhoods in America. In addition, 3.1% of the children seventeen and under living in this neighborhood are living below the federal poverty line, which is a lower rate of childhood poverty than is found in 83.3% of America's neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

A neighborhood is far different if it is dominated by enlisted military personnel rather than people who earn their living by farming. It is also different if most of the neighbors are clerical support or managers. What is wonderful is the sheer diversity of neighborhoods, allowing you to find the type that fits your lifestyle and aspirations.

In the Montauk Hwy / Snedecor Ave neighborhood, 47.8% of the working population is employed in executive, management, and professional occupations. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants, with 26.6% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations (14.6%), and 11.0% in manufacturing and laborer occupations.

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Culture is the shared learned behavior of peoples. Undeniably, different ethnicities and ancestries have different cultural traditions, and as a result, neighborhoods with concentrations of residents of one or another ethnicities or ancestries will express those cultures. It is what makes the North End in Boston so fun to visit for the Italian restaurants, bakeries, culture, and charm, and similarly, why people enjoy visiting Chinatown in San Francisco.

In the Montauk Hwy / Snedecor Ave neighborhood in West Islip, NY, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Italian (44.5%). There are also a number of people of Irish ancestry (36.0%), and residents who report German roots (27.1%), and some of the residents are also of English ancestry (4.3%), along with some Polish ancestry residents (3.2%), among others.

The Neighbors: Languages

The most common language spoken in the Montauk Hwy / Snedecor Ave neighborhood is English, spoken by 91.8% of households. Some people also speak Spanish (2.9%).

Getting to Work

Even if your neighborhood is walkable, you may still have to drive to your place of work. Some neighborhoods are located where many can get to work in just a few minutes, while others are located such that most residents have a long and arduous commute. The greatest number of commuters in Montauk Hwy / Snedecor Ave neighborhood spend under 15 minutes commuting one-way to work (38.0% of working residents), one of the shortest commutes across America. However, there is also a significant group of residents (12.9%) who commute over an hour in each direction.

In addition, quite a number also carpool with coworkers, friends, or neighbors to get to work (9.3%) and 8.5% of residents also take the train for their daily commute. In a neighborhood like this, as in most of the nation, many residents find owning a car useful for getting to work.
