Belle Glade Northwest is an urban neighborhood (based on population density) located in Belle Glade, Florida.

Belle Glade Northwest real estate is primarily made up of small (studio to two bedroom) to medium sized (three or four bedroom) small apartment buildings and single-family homes. Most of the residential real estate is renter occupied. Many of the residences in the Belle Glade Northwest neighborhood are established but not old, having been built between 1970 and 1999. A number of residences were also built between 1940 and 1969.

Belle Glade Northwest has a 11.2% vacancy rate, which is well above average compared to other U.S. neighborhoods (higher than 63.9% of American neighborhoods). Most vacant housing here is vacant year round.

Either way, if you live here, you may find many of the homes or apartments are empty.

Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

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: Occupations

Each year, fewer and fewer Americans make their living as farmers, foresters, or fishers. But the Belle Glade Northwest neighborhood truly stands out among U.S. neighborhoods. According to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, this neighborhood has a greater proportion of farmers, foresters, or fishers than 99.4% of all American neighborhoods. This is truly a unique cultural characteristic of this neighborhood.

Furthermore, there are more people living in the Belle Glade Northwest neighborhood employed as sales and service workers (58.9%) 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.

Notable & Unique: Real Estate

Corner bodegas, stores on the first floor and apartments above, former grand Victorian residences converted into apartments, three-deckers built shoulder-to-shoulder, duplexes. Such building types define the real estate of neighborhoods dominated by small 2, 3, and 4 unit apartment buildings. Many are in older core neighborhoods of Eastern and Midwestern cities, or historic town centers in their hinterlands. If you wax romantic about the look and feel of such neighborhoods, with fresh pizza, falafel and an independent florist at the corner, then you might find the Belle Glade Northwest neighborhood worth a close look. This neighborhood is an absolutely outstanding example of the dominance of small 2, 3, and 4 unit apartment buildings compared to neighborhoods across the nation, as they make up a substantial portion of this neighborhood's real estate stock. In fact, no less than 51.2% of the real estate here is made up of such dwellings, which is higher than 98.4% of all U.S. neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: People

The Belle Glade Northwest neighborhood stands out for having an average per capita income lower than 97.4% of the neighborhoods in the United States. Also of note, 63.5% 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.

Notable & Unique: Length of Commute

Regardless of the means by which residents commute, this neighborhood has a length of commute that is notable. Long commutes can be brutal. They take time, money, and energy, leaving less of you for yourself and your family. The residents of the Belle Glade Northwest neighborhood unfortunately have the distinction of having, on average, a longer commute than most any neighborhood in America. 12.0% of commuters here travel more than one hour just one-way to work. That is more than two hours per day. This percentage with two-hour + round-trip commutes is higher than NeighborhoodScout found in 97.1% of all neighborhoods in America.

Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation

Our research revealed that more commuters here take the bus to work (16.7% ride the bus) than 96.8% of all American neighborhoods. If you like the idea of leaving your car and home and hopping the bus to work, this might be a good neighborhood for you to consider.

Notable & Unique: Diversity

Belle Glade Northwest is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 27.4% of its residents five years old and above primarily speak French at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher than 99.9% of the neighborhoods in America.


The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income

How wealthy a neighborhood is, from very wealthy, to middle income, to low income is very formative with regard to the personality and character of a neighborhood. Equally important is the rate of people, particularly children, who live below the federal poverty line. In some wealthy gated communities, the areas immediately surrounding can have high rates of childhood poverty, which indicates other social issues. NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals both aspects of income and poverty for this neighborhood.

The neighbors in the Belle Glade Northwest neighborhood in Belle Glade are low income, making it among the lowest income neighborhoods in America. NeighborhoodScout's research shows that this neighborhood has an income lower than 97.4% of U.S. neighborhoods. With 63.5% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 97.5% of U.S. neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

A neighborhood is far different if it is dominated by enlisted military personnel rather than people who earn their living by farming. It is also different if most of the neighbors are clerical support or managers. What is wonderful is the sheer diversity of neighborhoods, allowing you to find the type that fits your lifestyle and aspirations.

In the Belle Glade Northwest neighborhood, 41.1% of the working population is employed in sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is executive, management, and professional occupations, with 17.7% of the residents employed.

The Neighbors: Languages

The most common language spoken in the Belle Glade Northwest neighborhood is English, spoken by 70.2% of households. Some people also speak French (27.4%).

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Culture is shared learned behavior. We learn it from our parents, their parents, our houses of worship, and much of our culture – our learned behavior – comes from our ancestors. That is why ancestry and ethnicity can be so interesting and important to understand: places with concentrations of people of one or more ancestries often express those shared learned behaviors and this gives each neighborhood its own culture. Even different neighborhoods in the same city can have drastically different cultures.

In the Belle Glade Northwest neighborhood in Belle Glade, FL, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Haitian (23.3%). There are also a number of people of Sub-Saharan African ancestry (3.2%), and residents who report African roots (3.2%), and some of the residents are also of Jamaican ancestry (2.8%). In addition, 24.6% of the residents of this neighborhood were born in another country.

Getting to Work

How you get to work – car, bus, train or other means – and how much of your day it takes to do so is a large quality of life and financial issue. Especially with gasoline prices rising and expected to continue doing so, the length and means of one's commute can be a financial burden. Some neighborhoods are physically located so that many residents have to drive in their own car, others are set up so many walk to work, or can take a train, bus, or bike. The greatest number of commuters in Belle Glade Northwest neighborhood spend under 15 minutes commuting one-way to work (37.7% of working residents), one of the shortest commutes across America. However, there is also a significant group of residents (12.0%) who commute over an hour in each direction.

Here most residents (63.4%) drive alone in a private automobile to get to work. In addition, quite a number also ride the bus to get to work (16.7%) and 12.3% of residents also carpool with coworkers, friends, or neighbors for their daily commute. In a neighborhood like this, as in most of the nation, many residents find owning a car useful for getting to work.
