Neponsit Real Estate and Homes for Sale or Rent

Anyone who's ever toured the western Rockaways on a sunny afternoon has surely visited Neponsit. This tiny enclave of single-family homes sits near the west edge of the peninsula, on the border of Jacob Riis Park. With just over 2,000 residents, this neighborhood was graced with a special zoning status that prohibits both commercial structures as well as any type of housing other than a detached, single-family house. The result is that Neponsit residents tend to enjoy larger yards, bigger houses, less noise and less traffic than their counterparts in other parts of the Rockaways.

Over the decades the trend in Neponsit has been toward constructing expensive, high quality real estate. The houses need to be sturdy considering the neighborhood's location at the thin end of the peninsula, with Jamaica Bay to the north and the Atlantic Ocean to the south. The name Neopnsit is a Native American word meaning "place between the waters."

Most of Neponsit's real estate is considered historic, dating back to the early 20th Century. A wide variety of architectural styles are present, probably owing to the fact that most of the homes were custom designed and built by affluent families. Most of the area homes tend to be at least two stories tall. Many have slightly raised foundations so that the main floors can be protected from storm surges, which, though possible, rarely occur.

One of the indications of the popularity of this unique residential enclave is how rarely the houses here change hands. Residents in Neponsit enjoy a tight-knit community, which shares a love for ocean breezes, sandy beaches and the sounds of the surf.
