Notes on the Geography of The Eastern United States: Seaside: Photo 17

world pictures The Eastern United States: Seaside

That's the fly in the ointment. The average 2,000-square foot cottage in Seaside sells for $900,000. Such prices keep shop clerks and carpenters at bay. They also explain why half the 300 homes are on short-term rentals. Rentals rates are high, too, starting at $200 nightly for a 2-bedroom, or $300 nightly for a 3-bedroom, place. Are there permanent residents in Seaside? Yes, but they occupy only a tenth of the homes. For those who really like the place, however, there's space in the Seaside cemetery. Plots are $15,000: minimum two, tombstones extra. This particular "cottage," named Proteus, appears to have been designed by an engineer last employed in 1880 by the Public Works Department of Madras. Except the color then would have been ocher, not white.
