New Town, FL Real Estate
Of all the neighborhoods of Key West, New town is the largest. Within the boundaries of this area are three distinct areas. The first area is from First Street to Kennedy Drive, and then Riviera Drive to Patterson Avenue. This area is primarily a residential area for local full time Key West residents. It is within walking distance to Key West High School, one of the main elementary schools, the ball stadium and the skateboard park. The second area is along the extreme north part of the island along North Roosevelt Blvd. Here you will find your classic shopping centers, fast food restaurants, big name brand stores, gas stations, and chain hotels. Finally, the third area is east of Kennedy Drive to the end of the island. This location is mostly inhabited by locals and has its own perks such as larger yards and even private waterfront villas. Occasionally homes in New Town can be rented as seasonal vacation rentals. From here you can easily ride your bike to Old Town, but most people drive.
