Notable & Unique: Real Estate

Many times, such places have amenities that bring locals and visitors to the waterfront for recreational activities or to check out the scenery. In some densely populated areas that are less financially well-off, the neighborhood waterfront can be relatively industrial and less open to recreation. In addition to being coastal, Bay Harbor / North Bal Harbor 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.

Notable & Unique: People

According to NeighborhoodScout's analysis, this is a higher proportion of same sex households than in 99.8% of the neighborhoods in America.

The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income

How wealthy a neighborhood is, from very wealthy, to middle income, to low income is very formative with regard to the personality and character of a neighborhood. Equally important is the rate of people, particularly children, who live below the federal poverty line. In some wealthy gated communities, the areas immediately surrounding can have high rates of childhood poverty, which indicates other social issues. NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals both aspects of income and poverty for this neighborhood.

The neighbors in the Bay Harbor / North Bal Harbor neighborhood in Fort Lauderdale are upper-middle income, making it an above average income neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals that this neighborhood has a higher income than 68.3% of the neighborhoods in America. With 44.7% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 89.6% of U.S. neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

A neighborhood is far different if it is dominated by enlisted military personnel rather than people who earn their living by farming. It is also different if most of the neighbors are clerical support or managers. What is wonderful is the sheer diversity of neighborhoods, allowing you to find the type that fits your lifestyle and aspirations.

In the Bay Harbor / North Bal Harbor neighborhood, 41.2% of the working population is employed in executive, management, and professional occupations. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants, with 34.3% of the residents employed.

The most common language spoken in the Bay Harbor / North Bal Harbor neighborhood is English, spoken by 67.5% of households.

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Culture is shared learned behavior. We learn it from our parents, their parents, our houses of worship, and much of our culture – our learned behavior – comes from our ancestors. That is why ancestry and ethnicity can be so interesting and important to understand: places with concentrations of people of one or more ancestries often express those shared learned behaviors and this gives each neighborhood its own culture. Even different neighborhoods in the same city can have drastically different cultures.

In the Bay Harbor / North Bal Harbor neighborhood in Fort Lauderdale, FL, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Italian (15.6%). There are also a number of people of Irish ancestry (7.6%), and residents who report German roots (7.3%), and some of the residents are also of English ancestry (6.8%), along with some Brazilian ancestry residents (4.6%), among others. In addition, 23.8% of the residents of this neighborhood were born in another country.

Getting to Work

How you get to work – car, bus, train or other means – and how much of your day it takes to do so is a large quality of life and financial issue. Especially with gasoline prices rising and expected to continue doing so, the length and means of one's commute can be a financial burden. Some neighborhoods are physically located so that many residents have to drive in their own car, others are set up so many walk to work, or can take a train, bus, or bike. The greatest number of commuters in Bay Harbor / North Bal Harbor neighborhood spend under 15 minutes commuting one-way to work (37.0% of working residents), one of the shortest commutes across America.

In addition, quite a number also hop out the door and walk to work to get to work (7.8%) and 6.6% of residents also carpool with coworkers, friends, or neighbors for their daily commute. In a neighborhood like this, as in most of the nation, many residents find owning a car useful for getting to work.
