Ocean Heights, The Boulevard, and Major’s Cove are densely built areas on streets that run from Edgartown-Vineyard Haven Road down to Sengekontacket Pond, a saltwater pond in Edgartown and Oak Bluffs that borders Nantucket Sound. On the Edgartown end, the pond was historically named Anthier’s Pond. Felix Neck Wildlife Sanctuary is a central oasis in this area.
