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 Brickell Ave / SE 15th Rd neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
The Brickell Ave / SE 15th Rd neighborhood is very densely populated compared to most U.S. neighborhoods. In fact, with 51,468 persons per square mile in the neighborhood, it is more packed with people than 98.7% of the nation's neighborhoods. Do you like a coastal setting? If so, this neighborhood may be to your liking.
The Brickell Ave / SE 15th Rd neighborhood is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet.
Often such coastal places have amenities and recreational activities on the waterfront
that are attractive to residents and visitors alike.
In addition to being coastal, Brickell Ave / SE 15th Rd is a very nautical neighborhood,
meaning that it is somewhat historic, walkable, densely populated and
on the water. This gives the neighborhood a very nautical feel,
with some seaside and shipping feel, which some may really enjoy the sights
and sounds of.
In addition, the real estate in the Brickell Ave / SE 15th Rd neighborhood really stands out in the way it looks for a unique reason: this neighborhood has a higher proportion of apartment complexes or high-rise apartments than nearly every neighborhood in the country. Most neighborhoods are a mixture of real estate and housing types, but here it is almost entirely dominated by big apartment buildings and complexes. In fact, 96.5% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 99.5% of American neighborhoods.
Furthermore, the Brickell Ave / SE 15th Rd 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 91.8% 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.
Also of note, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Brickell Ave / SE 15th Rd 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 39.8%, which is higher than 97.2% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
Executives, managers and professionals make up 81.4% of the workforce
in the Brickell Ave / SE 15th Rd neighborhood which, according to

high-level people than is found in 99.8% of the neighborhoods
in America. For this reason, this neighborhood really stands out as unique.
Notable & Unique: Diversity

South American and Cuban ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 25.8% of
this neighborhood's residents have South American ancestry and 20.8% have Cuban ancestry.
Brickell Ave / SE 15th Rd is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 2.2% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Greek at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.3% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: People
One of the most interesting things about the Brickell Ave / SE 15th Rd

reveals that this is a larger proportion of people living alone than in
99.7% of the neighborhoods in America.
In addition, some neighborhoods have residents that are more educated than others. But
in this neighborhood there is a dramatic difference. NeighborhoodScout's
exclusive analysis reveals that 45.5% of the adults here have
earned a Masters degree, medical degree, Ph.D. or law degree. This is a
higher rate of people with a graduate degree than is found in
99.1% of U.S. neighborhoods, where the average American
neighborhood has 8.4% of its adults with a graduate degree. If you are
highly educated, you may have much in common with many of your neighbors here.

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.
What is interesting to note, is that the Brickell Ave / SE 15th Rd
