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
N Ocean Blvd / NE 41st St 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
N Ocean Blvd / NE 41st St community truly stands out from the rest in this regard.
In addition, one of the most interesting things about the N Ocean Blvd / NE 41st St
neighborhood is that it has a greater concentration of residents who live
alone than most all neighborhoods in America. With 71.3% 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
99.9% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
A unique way of commuting is simply not to. And in the N Ocean Blvd / NE 41st St
neighborhood, analysis shows that 20.8% 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
99.5% 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 N Ocean Blvd / NE 41st St neighborhood has more
Romanian and Danish ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 2.1% of
this neighborhood's residents have Romanian ancestry and 2.9% have Danish ancestry.
N Ocean Blvd / NE 41st St is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 4.6% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak French at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.1% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, the real estate in the N Ocean Blvd / NE 41st St neighborhood really stands out in the way it looks for a unique reason: this neighborhood has a higher proportion of apartment complexes or high-rise apartments than nearly every neighborhood in the country. Most neighborhoods are a mixture of real estate and housing types, but here it is almost entirely dominated by big apartment buildings and complexes. In fact, 80.6% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 97.3% of American neighborhoods.
Furthermore, despite all of the residential real estate here in the N Ocean Blvd / NE 41st St 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 34.5%, which is higher than 95.9% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Also of note, the N Ocean Blvd / NE 41st St 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 82.3% 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.
