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
One of the most interesting things about the SW 23rd St / SW Williston Rd

In addition, an extraordinary 28.5% of the residents of the

Also, the SW 23rd St / SW Williston Rd neighborhood stands out for having an
average per capita income lower than 98.0% of the neighborhoods
in the United States.
The SW 23rd St / SW Williston Rd neighborhood also has a greater percentage
of children living in poverty (66.2%) than found in

Notable & Unique: Car Ownership

not only for commuting, but also for shopping and getting to other services
one needs. But NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed that households in
the SW 23rd St / SW Williston Rd neighborhood have a highly unusual car ownership.

or more cars. That is more cars per household than in 98.5% of
the neighborhoods in the nation.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
The freedom of moving to new places versus the comfort of home. How much
and how often people move not only can create diverse and worldly neighborhoods,
but simultaneously it can produce a loss of intimacy with one's surroundings
and a lack of connectedness to one's neighbors. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive
research has identified this neighborhood as unique with regard to the
transience of its populace.
In the SW 23rd St / SW Williston Rd neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 98.3% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the SW 23rd St / SW Williston Rd neighborhood has more
Haitian and Cuban ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 2.9% of
this neighborhood's residents have Haitian ancestry and 3.4% have Cuban ancestry.
SW 23rd St / SW Williston Rd is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 2.4% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Hindi, which is the official language of India at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 97.9% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
Would you like to be able to ride your bike to work? If you are attracted
to the idea of getting a little exercise of the two-wheeled type while
reducing your carbon footprint, bicycling to work might be the answer.
But which neighborhood you live in can make this either impossible, or
alternatively, a great and realistic option. NeighborhoodScout's analysis
revealed that the SW 23rd St / SW Williston Rd neighborhood is a fantastic
option for bicycle commuters, as 3.6% of commuters here do ride

than we found in 95.7% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, the real estate in the SW 23rd St / SW Williston Rd 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, 76.2% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 96.7% of American neighborhoods.
Furthermore, renter-occupied real estate is dominant in the SW 23rd St / SW Williston Rd neighborhood. The percentage of rental real estate here, according to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, is 84.6%, which is higher than 95.6% of the neighborhoods in America. If you were to buy and live in the property you bought here, you would be almost alone in doing so.
Also of note, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the SW 23rd St / SW Williston Rd 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, 80.2% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
