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 Boca Raton,
the S Ocean Blvd / E Camino Real neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
Do you like a coastal setting? If so, this neighborhood may be to your liking.
The S Ocean Blvd / E Camino Real 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, S Ocean Blvd / E Camino Real 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, one of the really unique and interesting things about the look and setting of the S Ocean Blvd / E Camino Real neighborhood is that it is almost entirely dominated by large apartment buildings, such as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments. 87.4% of the residential real estate here is classified as such. This puts this neighborhood on the map as having a higher proportion of large apartment buildings than 98.2% of all neighborhoods in America.
Furthermore, vacant homes and apartments are a significant characteristic of this neighborhood. In fact, with 46.0% of the residential real estate vacant, the S Ocean Blvd / E Camino Real neighborhood claims the distinction of having a higher vacancy rate than 98.1% 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
A unique way of commuting is simply not to. And in the S Ocean Blvd / E Camino Real
neighborhood, analysis shows that 28.0% of the residents work
from home, avoiding a commute altogether. This may not seem like a large number,
but it is a higher proportion of people working from home than is found in
99.8% of the neighborhoods in the United States.
One thing NeighborhoodScout's research reveals is that the wealthier and/or
more isolated the neighborhood, the greater the proportion of residents who
choose to work from home.

Croatian and Russian ancestry people living in it than nearly

S Ocean Blvd / E Camino Real is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 0.7% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Yiddish at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.4% of the neighborhoods in America.

and lifestyle of those living here. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis
