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
There are more people living in the NW 7th Ave / NW 5th St neighborhood
employed as sales and service workers (51.9%) than almost any neighborhood
in the country. From fast-food service workers to major sales accounts,
sales and service workers make up the largest proportion of our national
employment picture. But despite that size and importance nationally, this
neighborhood still stands out as unique due to the dominance of people
living here who work in such occupations.

97.8% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
Some neighborhoods have more internal cohesiveness than others. While other
neighborhoods feel like a collection of strangers who just happen to live
near each other. Sometimes this comes down to not only the personalities
of the people in a place, but how long people have been together in that
neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's research has revealed some interesting
things about the rootedness of people in the NW 7th Ave / NW 5th St
What is interesting to note, is that the NW 7th Ave / NW 5th St
