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: Diversity

Cuban and South American ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 79.4% of
this neighborhood's residents have Cuban ancestry and 5.1% have South American ancestry.
SW 8th St / SW 122nd Ave is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 92.0% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Spanish at home. This is a higher percentage than 99.6% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
The freedom of moving to new places versus the comfort of home. How much
and how often people move not only can create diverse and worldly neighborhoods,
but simultaneously it can produce a loss of intimacy with one's surroundings
and a lack of connectedness to one's neighbors. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive
research has identified this neighborhood as unique with regard to the
transience of its populace.
