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: Real Estate
If you like crowded places, then you will probably enjoy the Ocean Lane Dr / Crandon Blvd neighborhood. According to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive data analysis, this neighborhood is more densely populated than 96.7% of neighborhoods in the U.S., with 27,057 people per square mile living here. Ocean Lane Dr / Crandon Blvd is a neighborhood that is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet.
Many times, such places have amenities that bring locals and visitors to the
waterfront for recreational activities or to check out the scenery.
In some densely populated areas that are less financially well-off, the neighborhood
waterfront can be relatively industrial and less open to recreation.
In addition to being coastal, Ocean Lane Dr / Crandon Blvd 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, the real estate in the Ocean Lane Dr / Crandon Blvd 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, 97.5% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 99.6% of American neighborhoods.
Furthermore, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the Ocean Lane Dr / Crandon Blvd 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, 91.6% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
Also of note, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Ocean Lane Dr / Crandon Blvd 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 43.8%, which is higher than 97.9% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Ocean Lane Dr / Crandon Blvd neighborhood has more
South American and Spanish ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 37.8% of
this neighborhood's residents have South American ancestry and 4.6% have Spanish ancestry.
Ocean Lane Dr / Crandon Blvd is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 3.3% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Italian 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 Ocean Lane Dr / Crandon Blvd
neighborhood, analysis shows that 18.2% 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
99.2% 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: People

so, this neighborhood may be a good fit for you. NeighborhoodScout's research
revealed that a full 78.9% of the adults living in the
Ocean Lane Dr / Crandon Blvd neighborhood have earned at least a bachelor's
degree. This is a higher rate than NeighborhoodScout found in 98.7%
of U.S. neighborhoods. In this way, this neighborhood truly stands out.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
Some neighborhoods have more internal cohesiveness than others. While other
neighborhoods feel like a collection of strangers who just happen to live
near each other. Sometimes this comes down to not only the personalities
of the people in a place, but how long people have been together in that
neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's research has revealed some interesting
things about the rootedness of people in the Ocean Lane Dr / Crandon Blvd

in America. For this reason, this neighborhood really stands out as unique.
