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: People
Of note is NeighborhoodScout's research finding that the
Baskin neighborhood has some of the lowest rates of children
living in poverty of any neighborhood in the United States. In a nation
where approximately 1 in 4 children are living in poverty, the
Baskin community truly stands out from the rest in this regard.
In addition, astoundingly, the Baskin neighborhood has one of the highest
concentrations of divorcees living here than of any neighborhood, a
higher concentration than NeighborhoodScout found in 99.4%
of U.S. neighborhoods. This may be because people living here divorce
more often than others, or that divorced people move here after they
become divorced. If you are divorced, you will be in good company in
this particular Largo neighborhood.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
In the Baskin neighborhood, many people's commute means
walking from the bedroom to the home office. NeighborhoodScout's analysis
found that 15.7% of residents worked from home. This may not
seem like a large number, but Scout's research shows that this is a higher
percentage of people working from home than 98.6% of the
neighborhoods in America. Often people who work from home are engaged in
the creative or technological economy, such as is found in areas around Boston,
and in Silicon Valley. Other times, people may be engaged in other businesses
like trading stocks from home, or running a small beauty salon.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Baskin neighborhood has more
Cuban and Ukrainian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 3.5% of
this neighborhood's residents have Cuban ancestry and 1.7% have Ukrainian ancestry.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, the Baskin neighborhood stands out for having the majority of its residential real estate made up of mobile homes. In fact, 50.4% of the occupied real estate here are mobile homes, which is a greater proportion than is found in 99.2% 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, the Baskin 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 84.8% 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.
