Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation

Would you like to be able to ride your bike to work?

Notable & Unique: Occupations

There are more people living in the Dade Blvd / Meridian Ave neighborhood employed as sales and service workers (36.3%) than almost any neighborhood in the country. From fast-food service workers to major sales accounts, sales and service workers make up the largest proportion of our national employment picture. But despite that size and importance nationally, this neighborhood still stands out as unique due to the dominance of people living here who work in such occupations.

Notable & Unique: Diversity

Did you know that the Dade Blvd / Meridian Ave neighborhood has more Cuban and South American ancestry people living in it than nearly any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 8.4% of this neighborhood's residents have Cuban ancestry and 11.4% have South American ancestry.

Dade Blvd / Meridian Ave is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 3.0% 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 98.9% of the neighborhoods in America.

Notable & Unique: Real Estate

The Dade Blvd / Meridian 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 91.7% 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.

In addition, one of the really unique and interesting things about the look and setting of the Dade Blvd / Meridian Ave neighborhood is that it is almost entirely dominated by large apartment buildings, such as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments. 72.8% of the residential real estate here is classified as such. This puts this neighborhood on the map as having a higher proportion of large apartment buildings than 96.2% of all neighborhoods in America.

Furthermore, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Dade Blvd / Meridian Ave 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 34.3%, which is higher than 95.9% of all U.S. neighborhoods.

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 Dade Blvd / Meridian Ave neighborhood has a greater percentage of residents born in another country (52.1%) than are found in 98.2% of all U.S. neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Car Ownership

We Americans love our cars. Not only are they a necessity for most Americans due to the shape of our neighborhoods and the distances between where we live, work, shop, and go to school, but we also fancy them. As a result, most households in America have one, two, or three cars. But NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis shows that the Dade Blvd / Meridian Ave neighborhood has a highly unusual pattern of car ownership. 35.6% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in 97.5% of U.S. neighborhoods.


The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income
