Many things matter about a neighborhood, but the first thing most people notice
is the way a neighborhood looks and its particular character. For example, one
might notice whether the buildings all date from a certain time period or whether
shop signs are in multiple languages. This particular neighborhood in Jupiter,
the Route 1 / N Hwy neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
Do you like a coastal setting? If so, this neighborhood may be to your liking.
The Route 1 / N Hwy neighborhood is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet.
Often such coastal places have amenities and recreational activities on the waterfront
that are attractive to residents and visitors alike.
In addition to being coastal, Route 1 / N Hwy is a very nautical neighborhood,
meaning that it is somewhat historic, walkable, densely populated and
on the water. This gives the neighborhood a very nautical feel,
with some seaside and shipping feel, which some may really enjoy the sights
and sounds of.
In addition, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Route 1 / N Hwy neighborhood, NeighborhoodScout has discovered that much of it is vacant. In resort or second-home vacation areas, this naturally occurs because homes and apartments are seasonally occupied, and empty for a portion of the year. In non-vacation or resort areas, however, this can be an indicator of property abandonment or a weak real estate market. The vacancy rate here is 50.5%, which is higher than 98.6% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Furthermore, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the Route 1 / N Hwy 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, 88.8% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
Also of note, the Route 1 / N Hwy 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 84.6% 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: People
In a nation where 1 out of every 4 children lives in poverty, the
Route 1 / N Hwy neighborhood stands out as being ranked among
the lowest 0.1% of neighborhoods affected by this global
In addition, one of the most interesting things about the Route 1 / N Hwy
neighborhood is that it has a greater concentration of residents who live
alone than most all neighborhoods in America. With 56.7% of the
households here made up of people living alone, NeighborhoodScout's research
reveals that this is a larger proportion of people living alone than in
98.8% of the neighborhoods in America.
Also, if you're nearing retirement age, or in retirement, the
Route 1 / N Hwy neighborhood is an excellent choice for you to consider
for top-quality retirement living. This neighborhood is rated by
NeighborhoodScout as among the top 9.4% of retiree-friendly
neighborhoods in Florida, combining peace and quiet, safety from
crime, and offering diverse housing options from which retirees can
choose. Maybe it's because of these amenities that a large proportion
of the residents here are college educated seniors, mixed with other
age groups. For these and other reasons, NeighborhoodScout identifies
this neighborhood as a top-notch place to consider if you are thinking
of or planning to retire in Florida.
Notable & Unique: Diversity

Canadian and Irish ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 2.5% of
this neighborhood's residents have Canadian ancestry and 28.3% have Irish ancestry.
Route 1 / N Hwy is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 2.9% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak German at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.1% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
A unique way of commuting is simply not to. And in the Route 1 / N Hwy
neighborhood, analysis shows that 13.5% of the residents work
from home, avoiding a commute altogether. This may not seem like a large number,
but it is a higher proportion of people working from home than is found in
97.6% of the neighborhoods in the United States.
One thing NeighborhoodScout's research reveals is that the wealthier and/or
more isolated the neighborhood, the greater the proportion of residents who
choose to work from home.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
Each year, fewer and fewer Americans make their living as farmers, foresters,
or fishers. But the Route 1 / N Hwy neighborhood truly stands
out among U.S. neighborhoods. According to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis,
this neighborhood has a greater proportion of farmers, foresters, or fishers
than 95.4% of all American neighborhoods. This is truly a unique
cultural characteristic of this neighborhood.
