Seacliff. Even after the quaint seaside villages of Sayville, Bellport, Cold Spring Harbor and Port Jefferson, I never would have imagined that something like this existed on the Island, let alone in Nassau County. I understand what draws Geoffrey here and I can easily see living in an area like this, the lovely painted ladies perched on the hills, like the San Francisco Victorian houses. The geographic position of it on the Island also means that there isn't a lot of through-traffic in the area, as there's nowhere to go beyond it. Perhaps Nassau can be quiet enough for me.
