Saint James-Three Village
View Larger Map of St. James – Three Village
The last nexus of wealth on Long Island is the Gold Coast’s poor cousin 20 miles East on Long Island Sound in Suffolk County. I am being a bit facetious in this description as the best roads in Nissequogue and Old Field look and feel much like Lattingtown or Mill Neck on the better known section of the Gold Coast to the west. On this lovely stretch of Long Island Sound, the wealth is much smaller in numbers and scope and there is only one village on the Higley 1000. The Village of Old Field ranks 357th on the Higley 1000.
In spite of the fact that their is but one Higley 1000 neighborhoods in this area, their are a string of lovely coastal incorporated villages and neighborhoods that just missed making the list. These places include Setauket ($180,748 mean household income); Nissequogue ($180,134); Belle Terre ($163,424); Poquott ($161,898); Head of the Harbor ($158,338); Strongs Neck ($157,058), and Old Stony Brook ($142,049). I have included them on the map above because I love making maps and it will give the reader an idea of where this area’s other nicest residential neighborhoods are located in relationship to the two Higley 1000 neighborhoods.
