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 Bradenton,
the 53rd Ave W / 14th St W neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the 53rd Ave W / 14th St W neighborhood has more
Canadian and Cuban ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 2.3% of
this neighborhood's residents have Canadian ancestry and 5.3% have Cuban ancestry.
53rd Ave W / 14th St W is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 2.4% 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 96.7% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
Our research shows that more people carpool to work here in the
53rd Ave W / 14th St W (27.4%) than in 99.0% of the
neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
It used to be that most Americans lived on the farm, or otherwise made their
living from the land, the forests, or the sea. With global trade and an
economy increasingly based on providing services to one another, fewer
people farm, fish or harvest timber now than at any time in American history.
But according to NeighborhoodScout's leading analysis, the
53rd Ave W / 14th St W neighborhood stands apart from most American neighborhood due
to the proportion of its residents still working in these fields. With 6.4%
of the workforce so employed, this neighborhood has a greater concentration
of such workers than 97.6% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: People
Astoundingly, the 53rd Ave W / 14th St W neighborhood has one of the highest
concentrations of divorcees living here than of any neighborhood, a
higher concentration than NeighborhoodScout found in 97.3%
of U.S. neighborhoods. This may be because people living here divorce
more often than others, or that divorced people move here after they
become divorced. If you are divorced, you will be in good company in
this particular Bradenton neighborhood.
In addition, of note, 60.6% 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: Real Estate
In addition, the 53rd Ave W / 14th St W neighborhood stands out for having the majority of its residential real estate made up of mobile homes. In fact, 51.3% of the occupied real estate here are mobile homes, which is a greater proportion than is found in 99.3% of the neighborhoods in the U.S. If you like mobile homes, this might be a great neighborhood in which to look for real estate.
Furthermore, vacant homes and apartments are a significant characteristic of this neighborhood. In fact, with 35.6% of the residential real estate vacant, the 53rd Ave W / 14th St W neighborhood claims the distinction of having a higher vacancy rate than 96.2% 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, the 53rd Ave W / 14th St W neighborhood is very unique in that it has one of the highest proportions of one, two, or no bedroom real estate of any neighborhood in America. Most neighborhoods have a mixture of home or apartment sizes from small to large, but here the concentration of studios and other small living spaces is at near-record heights. With 83.3% of the real estate here of this small size, this most assuredly is a notable feature that makes this neighborhood unique, along with just a handful of other neighborhoods in the U.S. that share this characteristic.
