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: People
Of note is NeighborhoodScout's research finding that the
Gulf To Bay Blvd / Bayview Ave neighborhood has some of the lowest rates of children
living in poverty of any neighborhood in the United States. In a nation
where approximately 1 in 4 children are living in poverty, the
Gulf To Bay Blvd / Bayview Ave community truly stands out from the rest in this regard.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Gulf To Bay Blvd / Bayview Ave neighborhood has more
South American and Canadian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 15.6% of
this neighborhood's residents have South American ancestry and 2.0% have Canadian ancestry.
Gulf To Bay Blvd / Bayview Ave is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 0.3% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Mon-Khmer, which is the dominant language of Cambodia, at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 95.6% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
While most Americans do drive to work alone each day, the
Gulf To Bay Blvd / Bayview Ave neighborhood stands out by having 94.6% of commuters
doing so, which is a higher proportion of people driving alone to work
than NeighborhoodScout found in 97.3% of all American
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, the real estate in this neighborhood consists of more mobile homes than 98.1% of all neighborhoods in America, with 40.2% of the occupied housing here being classified as mobile homes. So if you are looking for a mobile home, or you like the look and feel of mobile home parks, this neighborhood might have the setting you desire.
Furthermore, the Gulf To Bay Blvd / Bayview Ave 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 85.8% 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.
Also of note, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Gulf To Bay Blvd / Bayview Ave neighborhood, NeighborhoodScout has discovered that much of it is vacant. In resort or second-home vacation areas, this naturally occurs because homes and apartments are seasonally occupied, and empty for a portion of the year. In non-vacation or resort areas, however, this can be an indicator of property abandonment or a weak real estate market. The vacancy rate here is 36.1%, which is higher than 96.4% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
