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 7th Ave / NW 5th St neighborhood has more
Cuban and Haitian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 29.1% of
this neighborhood's residents have Cuban ancestry and 3.1% have Haitian ancestry.
NW 7th Ave / NW 5th St is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 4.9% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak African languages at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 98.8% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
From major sales accounts to fast-food workers, sales and service employees
are often the backbone of the local economy. In the NW 7th Ave / NW 5th St
neighborhood, they truly stand out. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis
identifies this neighborhood as having a higher percentage of sales and
service workers than 98.4% of all American neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: People
One of the unique characteristics of the NW 7th Ave / NW 5th St
neighborhood revealed by analysis is that the per capita income of
residents here is lower than that found in 98.1% of the neighborhoods
Also of note, 71.5% of the children in this area
live in poverty; an extraordinarily high percentage compared to other
neighborhoods in the nation. In a nation where approximately one in
four children grows up in poverty, this neighborhood stands out for
the depth of the problem manifested here.
In addition, one of the most interesting things about the NW 7th Ave / NW 5th St
neighborhood is that it has a greater concentration of residents who live
alone than most all neighborhoods in America. With 50.5% of the
households here made up of people living alone, NeighborhoodScout's research
reveals that this is a larger proportion of people living alone than in
97.8% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
The freedom of moving to new places versus the comfort of home. How much
and how often people move not only can create diverse and worldly neighborhoods,
but simultaneously it can produce a loss of intimacy with one's surroundings
and a lack of connectedness to one's neighbors. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive
research has identified this neighborhood as unique with regard to the
transience of its populace.
What is interesting to note, is that the NW 7th Ave / NW 5th St
neighborhood has a greater percentage of residents born in another country
(42.2%) than are found in 95.1% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, renter-occupied real estate is dominant in the NW 7th Ave / NW 5th St neighborhood. The percentage of rental real estate here, according to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, is 95.6%, which is higher than 98.3% of the neighborhoods in America. If you were to buy and live in the property you bought here, you would be almost alone in doing so.
Furthermore, one of the really unique and interesting things about the look and setting of the NW 7th Ave / NW 5th St neighborhood is that it is almost entirely dominated by large apartment buildings, such as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments. 77.3% of the residential real estate here is classified as such. This puts this neighborhood on the map as having a higher proportion of large apartment buildings than 96.9% of all neighborhoods in America.
