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: Diversity
Did you know that the S Ocean Dr / Hallandale Ave neighborhood has more
Romanian and Russian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 6.0% of
this neighborhood's residents have Romanian ancestry and 13.2% have Russian ancestry.
S Ocean Dr / Hallandale Ave is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 14.8% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Russian at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.8% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
Do you like to be surrounded by people from all over the country or world,
with different perspectives and life experiences? Or do you instead prefer
to be in a neighborhood where most residents have lived there for a long
time, creating a sense of cohesiveness? NeighborhoodScout's analysis
reveals that this neighborhood stands out among American neighborhoods
for the uniqueness of the mobility of its residents.
What is interesting to note, is that the S Ocean Dr / Hallandale Ave
neighborhood has a greater percentage of residents born in another country
(58.1%) than are found in 99.0% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
If you like crowded places, then you will probably enjoy the S Ocean Dr / Hallandale Ave neighborhood. According to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive data analysis, this neighborhood is more densely populated than 96.7% of neighborhoods in the U.S., with 27,402 people per square mile living here.
In addition, the real estate in the S Ocean Dr / Hallandale 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. 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, 98.1% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 99.8% of American neighborhoods.
Furthermore, the S Ocean Dr / Hallandale Ave 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 93.9% 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.
Also of note, vacant homes and apartments are a significant characteristic of this neighborhood. In fact, with 51.7% of the residential real estate vacant, the S Ocean Dr / Hallandale Ave neighborhood claims the distinction of having a higher vacancy rate than 98.7% of the neighborhoods in America. This can either be because much of the property is seasonally occupied, like in many vacation areas, or that much of the real estate is more permanently abandoned.
