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: Real Estate
Do you like a coastal setting? If so, this neighborhood may be to your liking.
The Manatee Ave W / 79th St W 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, Manatee Ave W / 79th St W 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, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the Manatee Ave W / 79th St W 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, 84.1% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
A unique way of commuting is simply not to. And in the Manatee Ave W / 79th St W
neighborhood, analysis shows that 11.4% 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
95.5% 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.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Manatee Ave W / 79th St W neighborhood has more
Spanish ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 1.0% of
this neighborhood's residents have Spanish ancestry.
Manatee Ave W / 79th St W is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 0.8% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Japanese at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 95.2% of the neighborhoods in America.
