Sea Cliff is a quaint suburb with a great location--close to the city for commuting to jobs (taking the train of course), and neighboring other cute towns. It's right next to the water hence the name so a lot of people love to watch the sunsets on the hill next to the water (we dubbed it "sea cliff sunsets"). There are three villages in our area: Glenwood Landing, Sea Cliff, and Glen Head. Sea Cliff is definitely the best--the most restaurants and nightlife, prettiest /affordable housing, and the most community-like village. An example is that we have the annual garage sale day every year, we have constantly have beach festivals, and very nice yacht clubs to go to. Overall, I have loved living in Sea Cliff!!

Sea Cliff's one square mile village is filled with beautiful historic Victorian homes, multiple parks, lovely beaches, and only one traffic light. It is A town filled with a mix of Wall Street professionals, teachers, artists, and musicians. For a small town, Sea Cliff has a vibrant restaurant and bar scene regularly featuring Live music. Parents walk their kids to the elementary school in the heart of town, children roam the streets at an early age with a little concern of heavy traffic or crime, And community activities are plentiful and year round! Sea Cliff pride is very strong in the town and is exemplified by the bumper sticker "keep Sea Cliff weird."
Sea Cliff is a community, less than 25 miles from Manhattan, full of artists, families, and creators. It's liveliness springs from the brightly colored Victorian houses and friendly neighbors that always are looking out for one another. Summers consist of concerts on the Long Island Sound and winters walking through the snow-dusted hills.
