Sand Section - Noted by its close proximity to the ocean, this neighborhood is primarily identified with the paved concrete path running parallel to the beach called "the Strand". Oceanfront homes here are generally priced from 8-15 million dollars. More "reasonably" priced homes a short walk from the sand on one of the famous walk-streets are priced from 3-6 million. The Sand Section is extremely densely populated and parking is sparse, usually limited to residents, guests, and those willing to feed their life savings into a meter that will inevitably be broken.
Tree Section - The cheapest part of Manhattan Beach. Mainly single family homes with small yards on streets with ample vegetation. Parking is painless here. Some homes are a walkable distance from the beach, though not many. Most of MB's mortal families live here. That is, those with household incomes below $300k/year.
Hill Section - Ritziest part of town, most homes are gigantic with massive yards, pools, spas, and decks made of imported Brazilian wood. Many of the hilltop homes afford spectacular ocean views (these are the costliest), though none of the Hill Section's residents are very close to the beach. Prices range from 4-8 million, with new construction often fetching in excess of 10 million.
From May 15 to September 15 on weekends and holidays only, you can't park there, however you can park there Monday through Friday as long as it's not Memorial day, fourth of July or Labor day! Kinda stupid for the residents since they can't have friends over on the weekends for BBQs, unless the friends take the bus, because pple can only park in their driveways/garage (can fit a maximum of three cars).
The residents have a great deal with Kingsborough community college that allows them to use Kingsborough's beach during the summer; Manhattan Beach is a public beach and what ends up happening in the summer is that it gets swamped with ghetto trash from east new york who totally trash the beach; kingsborough beach, however is off limits to manhattan beach residents and kingsborough students/faculty only.
It borders Sheepshead Bay and Brighton Beach, so lots of shopping and restaurants, the only thing that sucks is that stupid assh&les park their cars on shore blvd and make lots of noise all night during the summer.
Answer: "Um, they all have college degrees in computer science and engineering, work their asses off, make lots of money and buy houses in Manhattan Beach!"
