Top Reviews from Travel Rentals Neighborhoods

Fort Hamilton is a quirky little neighborhood close to the waterfront. It has lots of front-yards and trees and it’s really pretty in the summer. There are some nice houses and alot of McMansions. If you haven’t been, I definitely recommend you go and take a walk down Shore Rd when the weather is nice.
