"Quiet and inaccessible"
While I'm not much of a fan of any of the towns on the Rockaway Peninsula, I have to admit that these waterfront towns are lovely. Seaside is no exception, with its waterfront high-rise apartment complexes. This town has an important cultural history, as it has been featured in books, TV shows, and movies. This is an incredibly safe and tight-knit community. During the peak summer season, the town tends to get very crowded with visitors, but the locals can enjoy peace and privacy during the rest of the year. This is a very peaceful town that offers a good escape from city life but its isolation results in problems such as a difficult commute to schools and a ninety minute commute to Manhattan. This is a fairly expensive place to live: housing prices are steep, particularly near the beach. Still, this town is lovely and well maintained. It is known for its colorful bus shelters. The town also has restaurants and shops, but there isn't a lot of diversity. This town, like other towns on the Rockaway Peninsula, is also prone to damage from storms.
