The southwest part of Monterey or New Monterey as it called materialized 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 homes on the hill above Cannery Row were smaller cottages and were modest places younger people and the large cannery workforce could live and call home.
Cannery Row was made into the most famous street in America by John Steinbeck's 1945 book "Cannery Row" that was written about the unique Monterey fish packing plants, bordellos and flophouses. Steinbeck was a local that grew up in Salinas, CA, went to college at Stanford and lived in Pacific Grove right next to Cannery Row.
In 1946, the US Military moved the Defense Language Institute (DLI), then called the Military Intelligence Service Language School (MISLS) 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 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 its 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 it’s 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.
