The historic district encompasses 37 contributing buildings and one contributing site. The main buildings are located along a north–south axis along Brielle Avenue and many are in the Colonial Revival or Tudor Revival style. The north group of buildings include

After many years of being shuttered and empty, the Seaview Hospital has slowly opened its doors again to care for the community with a rehabilitation center, nursing home, independent living facility, volunteer fire company and Volunteer Ambulance Service. At the site of the former Seaview Hospital, today the Sea View Hospital Rehabilitation Center & Home operates a long-term care facility. The facility houses the first Long Term Care Brain Injury rehabilitation center in the Downstate area. The Facility is run by the Health and Hospital Corporation and patrol by HHC Officers.
