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: Real Estate
Mcgregor Blvd / S Town And River Dr is a neighborhood that is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet.
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, Mcgregor Blvd / S Town And River Dr 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 Mcgregor Blvd / S Town And River Dr 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 41.1%, which is higher than 97.4% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Furthermore, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the Mcgregor Blvd / S Town And River Dr 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, 89.0% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Mcgregor Blvd / S Town And River Dr neighborhood has more
Welsh and English ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 4.4% of
this neighborhood's residents have Welsh ancestry and 24.4% have English ancestry.
Mcgregor Blvd / S Town And River Dr is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 2.0% 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 95.7% of the neighborhoods in America.
