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: Modes of Transportation
If your dream is to be able to ride your bike to work each day, look no
further than this unique neighborhood. With 12.7% of residents in
the S Main St / SW 11Th Pl neighborhood commuting on a bicycle to and
from work daily, this neighborhood has more bicycle commuters than
99.6% of all neighborhoods in the U.S., according to
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis.
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 S Main St / SW 11Th Pl neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 99.3% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
Notable & Unique: People
An extraordinary 36.2% of the residents of the
S Main St / SW 11Th Pl 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.
In addition, the S Main St / SW 11Th Pl neighborhood stands out for having an
average per capita income lower than 95.8% of the neighborhoods
in the United States.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the S Main St / SW 11Th Pl neighborhood has more
Eastern European and Cuban ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 2.0% of
this neighborhood's residents have Eastern European ancestry and 2.4% have Cuban ancestry.
S Main St / SW 11Th Pl is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.2% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Hebrew at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 98.5% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, the S Main St / SW 11Th Pl 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 90.1% 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.
Furthermore, one of the really unique and interesting things about the look and setting of the S Main St / SW 11Th Pl neighborhood is that it is almost entirely dominated by large apartment buildings, such as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments. 84.5% of the residential real estate here is classified as such. This puts this neighborhood on the map as having a higher proportion of large apartment buildings than 97.9% of all neighborhoods in America.
