In fact, with 42.0% of the residential real estate vacant, the Miromar Lakes neighborhood claims the distinction of having a higher vacancy rate than 97.6% 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.

Undeniably, different ethnicities and ancestries have different cultural traditions, and as a result, neighborhoods with concentrations of residents of one or another ethnicities or ancestries will express those cultures.
