"Unique personality, but far from the rest of the New York world"

This is the neighborhood on the eastern most part of the Rockaway Peninsula, and being so far from the rest of the city (it’s across the bay from Brooklyn, and it pretty much doesn’t get any further away from Manhattan that Far Rockaway) and so close to the beach, the neighborhood has a commuter and beach town (albeit without any tropical feel) sort of personality. Add then the element of urbanity, and what you have is this neighborhood. This neighborhood borders on the New York City limits, so beware if you’re planning on staying or living here but need to get into Manhattan daily – it might not be pretty, and it is sure to be a time consuming journey back and forth. Tourists do show up here to take historical tours.
