When you see a neighborhood for the first time, the most important thing
is often the way it looks, like its homes and its setting. Some places look
the same, but they only reveal their true character after living in them for
a while because they contain a unique mix of occupational or cultural groups.
This neighborhood is very unique in some important ways, according to
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive exploration and analysis.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the NW 56th Ave / W Oakland Park Blvd neighborhood has more
Haitian and West Indian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 28.8% of
this neighborhood's residents have Haitian ancestry and 0.2% have West Indian ancestry.
NW 56th Ave / W Oakland Park Blvd is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.2% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Gujarati, which is native to the Indian state of Gujarat, at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 97.3% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: People

the toughest job in the book. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals
that the NW 56th Ave / W Oakland Park Blvd neighborhood has more single mother
households than 98.8% of the neighborhoods in the U.S.
Often high concentrations of single mother homes can be a strong indicator
of family and social issues such as poverty, high rates of school dropouts,
crime, and other societal problems.

Because a number of college students live here, this neighborhood may
be close to a college campus and offer certain amenities nearby geared
towards the student body. While it's not an environment for everyone,
ambitious scholars can enjoy seasonal excitement between semesters and

above average safety rating. For each of these reasons, the

service workers than 96.9% of all American neighborhoods.

for the uniqueness of the mobility of its residents.
