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 Lamb Ct / Mcdonald 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 Lamb Ct / Mcdonald St neighborhood has more
British and Brazilian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 8.2% of
this neighborhood's residents have British ancestry and 3.7% have Brazilian ancestry.
Lamb Ct / Mcdonald St is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 3.4% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Portuguese at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 98.9% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: People
In a nation where 1 out of every 4 children lives in poverty, the
Lamb Ct / Mcdonald St neighborhood stands out as being ranked among
the lowest 0.1% of neighborhoods affected by this global
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 Lamb Ct / Mcdonald St neighborhood, where 35.0% 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 96.9%
of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, the Lamb Ct / Mcdonald 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 88.4% 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 real estate in the Lamb Ct / Mcdonald St 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, 78.1% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 97.0% of American neighborhoods.
Also of note, vacant homes and apartments are a significant characteristic of this neighborhood. In fact, with 32.8% of the residential real estate vacant, the Lamb Ct / Mcdonald St neighborhood claims the distinction of having a higher vacancy rate than 95.3% of the neighborhoods in America. This can either be because much of the property is seasonally occupied, like in many vacation areas, or that much of the real estate is more permanently abandoned.
