New Monterey materialized on the hill above Cannery Row as a neighborhood in the 1920’s through the 1940’s as housing was needed for workers involved in the enormous sardine cannery business of the time. Most of the New Monterey homes were smaller cottages and were modest places younger people could call home, although New Monterey does have some much larger homes here too.
In 1946 the US Military moved the Defense Language Institute (DLI), called the Military Intelligence Service Language School (MISLS) back then to the Monterey Presidio which borders New Monterey on its south side. This brought a significant number of instructors and staff members who ultimately would have impact on the areas housing including New Monterey and still does today, with language instructors making up a significant percentage of today’s home buyers in the area.
New Monterey is most known for the lifestyle it offers to residents. This area is close to all of the things that make the Monterey Peninsula the special place it is. Obviously Cannery Row is a great attraction today with great restaurants, sightseeing, the Monterey Bay Aquarium and fun shopping, no wonder it is the biggest tourist attraction in Monterey County. Scenic Pacific Grove with its beautiful rocky shoreline, quaint downtown and American hometown feel is on the border of New Monterey. Homes in New Monterey are a bit more affordable than Pacific Grove, making New Monterey popular with some second home buyers.
New Monterey is known for having some of the best views of Monterey Bay. It is very common to find a Monterey Bay View home or condo in New Monterey on the hill with outstanding views of the bay.
