The way a neighborhood looks and feels when you walk or drive around it, from
its setting, its buildings, and its flavor, can make all the difference. This
neighborhood has some really cool things about the way it looks and feels as
revealed by NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research. This might include anything
from the housing stock to the types of households living here to how people
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
Do you like a coastal setting? If so, this neighborhood may be to your liking.
The Seabreeze 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, Seabreeze 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, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Seabreeze 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 36.4%, which is higher than 96.5% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
More people in Seabreeze choose to walk to work each day
(15.6%) than almost any neighborhood in America. If you are
attracted to the idea of being able to walk to work, this neighborhood
could be a good choice.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
The freedom of moving to new places versus the comfort of home. How much
and how often people move not only can create diverse and worldly neighborhoods,
but simultaneously it can produce a loss of intimacy with one's surroundings
and a lack of connectedness to one's neighbors. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive
research has identified this neighborhood as unique with regard to the
transience of its populace.
In the Seabreeze neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 96.4% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
Notable & Unique: Car Ownership
Most American households own a car or other vehicle. Many own two cars
or perhaps three. In the United States, it is useful to have an automobile
not only for commuting, but also for shopping and getting to other services
one needs. But NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed that households in
the Seabreeze neighborhood have a highly unusual car ownership.
25.0% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at
all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
95.9% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: People
One of the most interesting things about the Seabreeze
neighborhood is that it has a greater concentration of residents who live
alone than most all neighborhoods in America. With 47.5% of the
households here made up of people living alone, NeighborhoodScout's research
reveals that this is a larger proportion of people living alone than in
95.8% of the neighborhoods in America.
In addition, with a nice mix of college students, safety from crime, and decent
walkability, the Seabreeze neighborhood rates highly
as a college student friendly place to live, and one that college
students and their parents may want to consider. NeighborhoodScout's
analysis shows that it rates more highly for a good place for college
students to live than 88% of the neighborhoods in
FL. This often also means that the area has certain amenities
and services geared towards college students, from undergraduates to
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Seabreeze neighborhood has more
Hungarian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 2.1% of
this neighborhood's residents have Hungarian ancestry.
Seabreeze is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 2.6% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Arabic at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 97.1% of the neighborhoods in America.
