Canadian and Iranian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 2.6% of

Notable & Unique: Occupations
More people work in manufacturing and as laborers here in the New Tampa Hwy / N Chestnut Rd
neighborhood than in 97.9% of the neighborhoods in America. Despite
the loss of manufacturing jobs across the nation, this neighborhood remains
a place where, compared to other parts of the country, you will find many
laborers and manufacturers.
Furthermore, it used to be that most Americans lived on the farm, or otherwise made their
living from the land, the forests, or the sea. With global trade and an
economy increasingly based on providing services to one another, fewer
people farm, fish or harvest timber now than at any time in American history.
But according to NeighborhoodScout's leading analysis, the
New Tampa Hwy / N Chestnut Rd neighborhood stands apart from most American neighborhood due
to the proportion of its residents still working in these fields. With 5.4%
of the workforce so employed, this neighborhood has a greater concentration
of such workers than 96.9% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, the New Tampa Hwy / N Chestnut Rd neighborhood stands out for having the majority of its residential real estate made up of mobile homes. In fact, 70.1% of the occupied real estate here are mobile homes, which is a greater proportion than is found in 99.9% of the neighborhoods in the U.S. If you like mobile homes, this might be a great neighborhood in which to look for real estate.
Furthermore, despite all of the residential real estate here in the New Tampa Hwy / N Chestnut Rd 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 39.9%, which is higher than 97.2% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Also of note, the New Tampa Hwy / N Chestnut Rd 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 82.3% 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.
