SW 34th St / SW 20th Ave is a suburban neighborhood (based on population density) located in Gainesville, Florida.

Most of the residential real estate is renter occupied. Many of the residences in the SW 34th St / SW 20th Ave neighborhood are established but not old, having been built between 1970 and 1999. A number of residences were also built between 2000 and the present.

This is higher than the rate of vacancies in 89.8% of all U.S. neighborhoods. In addition, most vacant housing here is vacant year round.

If you live here, you may find that a number of buildings in your neighborhood are actually empty.

Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

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

In addition, an extraordinary 42.9% of the residents of the SW 34th St / SW 20th Ave neighborhood are currently enrolled in college. This is such a large part of life in this neighborhood that the neighborhood changes a great deal with the change of semesters and is far quieter during the summer when many students are away.

Also, 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 34th St / SW 20th Ave neighborhood is a fantastic option for bicycle commuters, as 6.9% of commuters here do ride their bikes to and from work on a daily basis. This is a higher amount than we found in 98.6% of the neighborhoods in America.

In addition, the real estate in the SW 34th St / SW 20th Ave 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.

In fact, 67.7% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 95.3% of American neighborhoods.

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 81.1% 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.

Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability

The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income

There are two complementary measures for understanding the income of a neighborhood's residents: the average and the extremes. While a neighborhood may be relatively wealthy overall, it is equally important to understand the rate of people - particularly children - who are living at or below the federal poverty line, which is extremely low income. Some neighborhoods with a lower average income may actually have a lower childhood poverty rate than another with a higher average income, and this helps us understand the conditions and character of a neighborhood.

The neighbors in the SW 34th St / SW 20th Ave neighborhood in Gainesville are low income, making it among the lowest income neighborhoods in America. NeighborhoodScout's research shows that this neighborhood has an income lower than 92.8% of U.S. neighborhoods. With 89.2% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 99.8% 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 SW 34th St / SW 20th Ave neighborhood, 47.3% of the working population is employed in sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is executive, management, and professional occupations, with 32.4% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in government jobs, whether they are in local, state, or federal positions (13.4%), and 10.6% in manufacturing and laborer occupations.

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Culture is the shared learned behavior of peoples. 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. It is what makes the North End in Boston so fun to visit for the Italian restaurants, bakeries, culture, and charm, and similarly, why people enjoy visiting Chinatown in San Francisco.

In the SW 34th St / SW 20th Ave neighborhood in Gainesville, FL, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Italian (12.2%). There are also a number of people of German ancestry (7.8%), and residents who report Mexican roots (7.8%), and some of the residents are also of Irish ancestry (7.8%), along with some English ancestry residents (5.9%), among others. In addition, 20.6% of the residents of this neighborhood were born in another country.

The Neighbors: Languages

The languages spoken by people in this neighborhood are diverse. These are tabulated as the languages people preferentially speak when they are at home with their families. The most common language spoken in the SW 34th St / SW 20th Ave neighborhood is English, spoken by 75.4% of households. Other important languages spoken here include Spanish and Chinese.

Getting to Work

Even if your neighborhood is walkable, you may still have to drive to your place of work. Some neighborhoods are located where many can get to work in just a few minutes, while others are located such that most residents have a long and arduous commute. The greatest number of commuters in SW 34th St / SW 20th Ave neighborhood spend under 15 minutes commuting one-way to work (52.0% of working residents), one of the shortest commutes across America.
