There are several communities like this on the outer island of Fire Island in New York of all places. It is predominately a summer area but there are many year round residents.
You have to grab a ferry from Bay Shore on Long Island where you LEAVE YOUR CAR and when you arrive on the other side, most everyone has a wagon to load their clothes and groceries to continue their trip to their homes. I spent several summers there as a child with my family and it was a wonderful and extremely safe area to grow up.
Many folks had bicycles but most walked as nearly everyone greeted you as you proceeded to where ever you were going throughout the day.
