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
Did you know that the Brickell Ave / SE 13Th St neighborhood has more
South American and Cuban ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 22.9% of
this neighborhood's residents have South American ancestry and 14.1% have Cuban ancestry.
Brickell Ave / SE 13Th St is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 4.7% 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 99.6% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: People
The Brickell Ave / SE 13Th St neighborhood has a greater percentage
of children living in poverty (78.5%) than found in
99.1% of all U.S. neighborhoods. Children living in poverty
is one of the challenges facing America, and the world, and in this
neighborhood in particular, the problem can be considered acute.
In addition, if knowledge is power, then imagine the cumulative power of one neighborhood
where many of the adults have earned an advanced degree, such as a Masters,
law degree, medical degree, or even a Ph.D. This is certainly the case in
the Brickell Ave / SE 13Th St neighborhood, where 34.7% have
earned an advanced degree. Compare that to the average neighborhood in
America, where just 8.4% of adults have completed a post-graduate degree,
and you can see why this neighborhood is a stand out. In fact, this neighborhood
has a higher rate of adults with an advanced degree than 96.8%
of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
In the Brickell Ave / SE 13Th St neighborhood, walking to work is a real
option for many. In fact, NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research reveals
walking to and from work is the chosen way to commute for 31.3%
of residents here. This is a higher proportion of walking commuters than
we found in 98.9% of American neighborhoods. Get ready
to put on your walking shoes if you move here!
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
The Brickell Ave / SE 13Th St neighborhood is very densely populated compared to most U.S. neighborhoods. In fact, with 41,911 persons per square mile in the neighborhood, it is more packed with people than 98.2% of the nation's neighborhoods.
In addition, one of the really unique and interesting things about the look and setting of the Brickell Ave / SE 13Th St neighborhood is that it is almost entirely dominated by large apartment buildings, such as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments. 99.6% 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 99.9% of all neighborhoods in America.
Furthermore, if you like the look and ambience of new homes and newly built neighborhoods, you will love the Brickell Ave / SE 13Th St neighborhood. A whopping 90.7% of the homes and other residential real estate here were built after 1999, which is a higher proportion of new homes then you will find in 99.6% of the neighborhoods in the U.S. Everything here just feels new. In fact, the concentration of newer homes here is so great that they completely dominate the landscape. In most neighborhoods, there is a mixture of ages of residential real estate, but here it is almost completely built during one time frame: 2000 through today.
Also of note, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Brickell Ave / SE 13Th St 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 45.6%, which is higher than 98.1% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Finally, the Brickell Ave / SE 13Th 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 83.7% 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.
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.
In the Brickell Ave / SE 13Th St neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 96.9% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
What is also interesting to note, is that the Brickell Ave / SE 13Th St
neighborhood has a greater percentage of residents born in another country
(45.6%) than are found in 96.4% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
