Many things matter about a neighborhood, but the first thing most people notice
is the way a neighborhood looks and its particular character. For example, one
might notice whether the buildings all date from a certain time period or whether
shop signs are in multiple languages. This particular neighborhood in Venice,
the City Center neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
Venice City Center is a neighborhood that is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet.
Many times, such places have amenities that bring locals and visitors to the
waterfront for recreational activities or to check out the scenery.
In some densely populated areas that are less financially well-off, the neighborhood
waterfront can be relatively industrial and less open to recreation.
In addition to being coastal, Venice City Center is a very nautical neighborhood,
meaning that it is somewhat historic, walkable, densely populated and
on the water. This gives the neighborhood a very nautical feel,
with some seaside and shipping feel, which some may really enjoy the sights
and sounds of.
In addition, vacant homes and apartments are a significant characteristic of this neighborhood. In fact, with 43.7% of the residential real estate vacant, the Venice City Center neighborhood claims the distinction of having a higher vacancy rate than 97.9% of the neighborhoods in America. This can either be because much of the property is seasonally occupied, like in many vacation areas, or that much of the real estate is more permanently abandoned.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
If your dream is to be able to ride your bike to work each day, look no

NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis.

Yugoslav and English ancestry people living in it than nearly

this neighborhood's residents have Yugoslav ancestry and 15.4% have English ancestry.
Venice City Center is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.3% of its residents five years old and above primarily
