Do you like a coastal setting? If so, this neighborhood may be to your liking.
The Pantigo neighborhood is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet.
Often such coastal places have amenities and recreational activities on the waterfront
that are attractive to residents and visitors alike.
In addition to being coastal, Pantigo 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, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Pantigo neighborhood, NeighborhoodScout has discovered that much of it is vacant. In resort or second-home vacation areas, this naturally occurs because homes and apartments are seasonally occupied, and empty for a portion of the year. In non-vacation or resort areas, however, this can be an indicator of property abandonment or a weak real estate market. The vacancy rate here is 62.6%, which is higher than 99.5% of all U.S. neighborhoods.

South American and Russian ancestry people living in it than nearly
