Top Reviews from Travel Rentals Neighborhoods

The tight-knit community of Belle Harbor is protective of their quiet way of life. Nestled between Jamaica Bay and the Atlantic Ocean on the Rockaway Penninsula (also known as Rockapulco), this suburban enclave offers sandy beaches, large single family homes and a large Irish population, including many firefighters, policemen and their families.Nina B.

my little neighborhood

If you can even find it, come visit. It’s a treasure of a neighborhood. Tiny and walkable, there is no need to ever drive unless you’re headed to Manhattan. It’s cute as a button, but don’t tell everyone! It’s best feature is that it really is about 2000 or so year round residents.

We have a wonderful k-8 school and this is the best place to raise kids -the best!
