living in poverty of any neighborhood in the United States. In a nation
where approximately 1 in 4 children are living in poverty, the
3rd St S / Broad Ave S community truly stands out from the rest in this regard.
In addition, the types of households in a neighborhood can tell a lot about the character

has a greater percentage of its residents living alone: 52.8%. This
is a higher percent living alone than we found in 97.9% of
all U.S. neighborhoods. Often residents who live alone are new arrivals
to an area who are single, and often senior citizens who have lost a spouse.
Also, if you're nearing retirement age, or in retirement, the
3rd St S / Broad Ave S neighborhood is an excellent choice for you to consider
for top-quality retirement living. This neighborhood is rated by
NeighborhoodScout as among the top 6.3% of retiree-friendly
neighborhoods in Florida, combining peace and quiet, safety from
crime, and offering diverse housing options from which retirees can
choose. Maybe it's because of these amenities that a large proportion
of the residents here are college educated seniors, mixed with other

this neighborhood as a top-notch place to consider if you are thinking
of or planning to retire in Florida.

percentage of people working from home than 99.4% of the
neighborhoods in America. Often people who work from home are engaged in

like trading stocks from home, or running a small beauty salon.

In fact, with 55.4% of the residential real estate vacant, the 3rd St S / Broad Ave S neighborhood claims the distinction of having a higher vacancy rate than 99.0% of the neighborhoods in America.
