NW 87th Ave / NW 8th St is a densely urban neighborhood (based on population density) located in Miami, Florida.

NW 87th Ave / NW 8th St real estate is primarily made up of small (studio to two bedroom) to medium sized (three or four bedroom) apartment complexes/high-rise apartments and single-family homes. Most of the residential real estate is occupied by a mixture of owners and renters. Many of the residences in the NW 87th Ave / NW 8th St neighborhood are established but not old, having been built between 1970 and 1999. A number of residences were also built between 1940 and 1969.

NW 87th Ave / NW 8th St has a 13.4% vacancy rate, which is well above average compared to other U.S. neighborhoods (higher than 68.9% of American neighborhoods). Most vacant housing here is vacant year round.

Either way, if you live here, you may find many of the homes or apartments are empty.

Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

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 Miami, the NW 87th Ave / NW 8th St neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.

Notable & Unique: Diversity

Did you know that the NW 87th Ave / NW 8th St neighborhood has more Cuban and South American ancestry people living in it than nearly any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 46.3% of this neighborhood's residents have Cuban ancestry and 11.9% have South American ancestry.

NW 87th Ave / NW 8th St is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 91.3% of its residents five years old and above primarily speak Spanish at home. This is a higher percentage than 99.5% 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 NW 87th Ave / NW 8th St neighborhood has a greater percentage of residents born in another country (66.2%) than are found in 99.6% of all U.S. neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Real Estate

One of the really unique and interesting things about the look and setting of the NW 87th Ave / NW 8th St neighborhood is that it is almost entirely dominated by large apartment buildings, such as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments. 92.9% 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 98.9% of all neighborhoods in America.

In addition, the NW 87th Ave / NW 8th St 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 93.4% 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.

Furthermore, the NW 87th Ave / NW 8th St neighborhood is very densely populated compared to most U.S. neighborhoods. In fact, with 31,655 persons per square mile in the neighborhood, it is more packed with people than 97.3% of the nation's neighborhoods.

Also of note, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the NW 87th Ave / NW 8th St 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, 84.2% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.

Notable & Unique: People

One of the unique characteristics of the NW 87th Ave / NW 8th St neighborhood revealed by analysis is that the per capita income of residents here is lower than that found in 96.6% of the neighborhoods in America.

In addition, single parenting is hard. But you don't have to tell the NW 87th Ave / NW 8th St neighborhood about it; they already know. 18.6% of this neighborhood's households are run by single mothers, which is a higher concentration than NeighborhoodScout found in 95.0% of American neighborhoods. Further NeighborhoodScout research showed strong statistical correlations among high rates of children living in single parent households, and neighborhood crime, particularly violent crime, neighborhood poverty, and, importantly, the percentage of low weight births and rates of infant mortality.

Also, the NW 87th Ave / NW 8th St neighborhood stands out within Florida for its college student friendly environment. NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals that this neighborhood is home to a number of college students, is relatively walkable, and above average in safety. In combination, this makes it stand out for a good place for college students to consider.

While it's not an environment for everyone, ambitious scholars can enjoy seasonal excitement between semesters and school breaks, and parents can rest easy knowing that the area has an above average safety rating. For each of these reasons, the neighborhood is rated among the top 8.7% of college-friendly places to live in FL.


The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income

How wealthy a neighborhood is, from very wealthy, to middle income, to low income is very formative with regard to the personality and character of a neighborhood. Equally important is the rate of people, particularly children, who live below the federal poverty line. In some wealthy gated communities, the areas immediately surrounding can have high rates of childhood poverty, which indicates other social issues. NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals both aspects of income and poverty for this neighborhood.

The neighbors in the NW 87th Ave / NW 8th St neighborhood in Miami are low income, making it among the lowest income neighborhoods in America. NeighborhoodScout's research shows that this neighborhood has an income lower than 96.6% of U.S. neighborhoods. With 51.1% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 91.1% of U.S. neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

A neighborhood is far different if it is dominated by enlisted military personnel rather than people who earn their living by farming. It is also different if most of the neighbors are clerical support or managers. What is wonderful is the sheer diversity of neighborhoods, allowing you to find the type that fits your lifestyle and aspirations.

In the NW 87th Ave / NW 8th St neighborhood, 30.5% of the working population is employed in sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants.

Other residents here are employed in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations (23.2%), and 20.6% in executive, management, and professional occupations.

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Culture is shared learned behavior. We learn it from our parents, their parents, our houses of worship, and much of our culture – our learned behavior – comes from our ancestors. That is why ancestry and ethnicity can be so interesting and important to understand: places with concentrations of people of one or more ancestries often express those shared learned behaviors and this gives each neighborhood its own culture. Even different neighborhoods in the same city can have drastically different cultures.

In the NW 87th Ave / NW 8th St neighborhood in Miami, FL, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Cuban (46.3%). There are also a number of people of South American ancestry (11.9%), and residents who report Mexican roots (4.2%), and some of the residents are also of Scottish ancestry (2.4%), along with some Russian ancestry residents (2.0%), among others.

Getting to Work

Even if your neighborhood is walkable, you may still have to drive to your place of work. Some neighborhoods are located where many can get to work in just a few minutes, while others are located such that most residents have a long and arduous commute.
