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: Real Estate
Route 1 / Cypress Dr is a neighborhood that is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet.
Many times, such places have amenities that bring locals and visitors to the
waterfront for recreational activities or to check out the scenery.
In some densely populated areas that are less financially well-off, the neighborhood
waterfront can be relatively industrial and less open to recreation.
In addition to being coastal, Route 1 / Cypress Dr 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 Route 1 / Cypress Dr 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, 92.4% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 98.9% of American neighborhoods.
Furthermore, the Route 1 / Cypress Dr 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 93.7% 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: People
One of the most interesting things about the Route 1 / Cypress Dr
neighborhood is that it has a greater concentration of residents who live
alone than most all neighborhoods in America. With 65.1% of the
households here made up of people living alone, NeighborhoodScout's research
reveals that this is a larger proportion of people living alone than in
99.6% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Route 1 / Cypress Dr neighborhood has more
Finnish and Greek ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 1.9% of
this neighborhood's residents have Finnish ancestry and 2.5% have Greek ancestry.
Route 1 / Cypress Dr is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.6% 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 98.6% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
While most Americans do drive to work alone each day, the
Route 1 / Cypress Dr neighborhood stands out by having 93.7% of commuters
doing so, which is a higher proportion of people driving alone to work
than NeighborhoodScout found in 95.7% of all American
