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: Car Ownership
We Americans love our cars. Not only are they a necessity for most Americans
due to the shape of our neighborhoods and the distances between where we
live, work, shop, and go to school, but we also fancy them. As a result,
most households in America have one, two, or three cars. But NeighborhoodScout's
exclusive analysis shows that the Lakeside Blvd / Boca West Dr neighborhood has
a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.
Residents of this neighborhood must really love automobiles. NeighborhoodScout's
Analysis reveals that 52.9% of the households here have four, five,
or more cars. That is more cars per household than in 99.9% of
the neighborhoods in the nation.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Lakeside Blvd / Boca West Dr neighborhood has more
Russian and Eastern European ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 10.0% of
this neighborhood's residents have Russian ancestry and 2.4% have Eastern European ancestry.
Lakeside Blvd / Boca West Dr is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 2.7% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak German at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 98.9% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
Our research reveals that 96.5% of commuters who live in the
Lakeside Blvd / Boca West Dr neighborhood get to work each day by driving
alone in their automobiles, which is a higher proportion than
99.3% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: People
The types of households in a neighborhood can tell a lot about the character
and lifestyle of those living here. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis
reveals that this neighborhood, above nearly every neighborhood in America,
has a greater percentage of its residents living alone: 46.8%. This
is a higher percent living alone than we found in 95.4% of
all U.S. neighborhoods. Often residents who live alone are new arrivals
to an area who are single, and often senior citizens who have lost a spouse.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
One of the notable things about Lakeside Blvd / Boca West Dr is that it is one of the quietest neighborhoods in America, according to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis and quantitative rating of quietness. When you are here, you will find it to be very quiet. If quiet and peaceful are your cup of tea, you may have found a great place for you.
In addition, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the Lakeside Blvd / Boca West Dr stands out as rather unique in having nearly all of its residential real estate built in one time period, namely between 1970 and 1999, generally considered to be established, but not old housing. What you'll sense when you look around or drive the streets of this neighborhood is that many of the residences look the same because of this similarity of age. In fact, 91.6% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
Furthermore, vacant homes and apartments are a significant characteristic of this neighborhood. In fact, with 40.6% of the residential real estate vacant, the Lakeside Blvd / Boca West Dr neighborhood claims the distinction of having a higher vacancy rate than 97.4% 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.
Also of note, many people dream of living along a street lined with row houses or other attached homes. Such places do often have an abundance of charm. If you are one of these people, the Lakeside Blvd / Boca West Dr neighborhood could be your paradise. With 23.5% of the homes and real estate here classified as rowhouses or other attached homes, this neighborhood brims with opportunity to find the right place for you. Only 4.9% of U.S. neighborhoods have more row houses than this neighborhood, making it one of the most interesting things about this special neighborhood.
