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: Diversity
Did you know that the Via Delray / S Military Trl neighborhood has more
West Indian and Russian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 0.7% of
this neighborhood's residents have West Indian ancestry and 14.7% have Russian ancestry.
Via Delray / S Military Trl is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 0.8% 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 99.5% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: People
One of the most interesting things about the Via Delray / S Military Trl
neighborhood is that it has a greater concentration of residents who live
alone than most all neighborhoods in America. With 56.9% 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
98.8% of the neighborhoods in America.
In addition, if you're planning where to retire, the Via Delray / S Military Trl neighborhood in
Delray Beach is a great option to consider. According to NeighborhoodScout's
exclusive retirement dream area analysis, it's peaceful and quiet, has
above average safety ratings compared to other neighborhoods in FL,
offers a wide range of housing options, and has already attracted an
enviable mix of college educated seniors. This neighborhood ranks as better
for retirement living than 88.1% of the neighborhoods
in Florida. If you are considering retiring to Florida, this
is a good neighborhood to look at.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
In the Via Delray / S Military Trl neighborhood, many people's commute means
walking from the bedroom to the home office. NeighborhoodScout's analysis
found that 14.6% of residents worked from home. This may not
seem like a large number, but Scout's research shows that this is a higher
percentage of people working from home than 98.2% of the
neighborhoods in America. Often people who work from home are engaged in
the creative or technological economy, such as is found in areas around Boston,
and in Silicon Valley. Other times, people may be engaged in other businesses
like trading stocks from home, or running a small beauty salon.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, corner bodegas, stores on the first floor and apartments above, former grand Victorian residences converted into apartments, three-deckers built shoulder-to-shoulder, duplexes. Such building types define the real estate of neighborhoods dominated by small 2, 3, and 4 unit apartment buildings. Many are in older core neighborhoods of Eastern and Midwestern cities, or historic town centers in their hinterlands. If you wax romantic about the look and feel of such neighborhoods, with fresh pizza, falafel and an independent florist at the corner, then you might find the Via Delray / S Military Trl neighborhood worth a close look. This neighborhood is an absolutely outstanding example of the dominance of small 2, 3, and 4 unit apartment buildings compared to neighborhoods across the nation, as they make up a substantial portion of this neighborhood's real estate stock. In fact, no less than 50.1% of the real estate here is made up of such dwellings, which is higher than 98.0% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Furthermore, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the Via Delray / S Military Trl 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, 90.6% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
Also of note, the Via Delray / S Military Trl 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 83.4% 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.
