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 Port Richey,
the Route 19 / Clemens Blvd neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
Do you like a coastal setting? If so, this neighborhood may be to your liking.
The Route 19 / Clemens Blvd 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, Route 19 / Clemens Blvd 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 Route 19 / Clemens Blvd neighborhood stands out for having the majority of its residential real estate made up of mobile homes. In fact, 70.7% of the occupied real estate here are mobile homes, which is a greater proportion than is found in 99.9% of the neighborhoods in the U.S. If you like mobile homes, this might be a great neighborhood in which to look for real estate.
Furthermore, the Route 19 / Clemens Blvd 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 91.9% 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, vacant homes and apartments are a significant characteristic of this neighborhood. In fact, with 43.8% of the residential real estate vacant, the Route 19 / Clemens Blvd neighborhood claims the distinction of having a higher vacancy rate than 97.9% 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.
Finally, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the Route 19 / Clemens Blvd stands out as rather unique in having nearly all of its residential real estate built in one time period, namely between 1970 and 1999, generally considered to be established, but not old housing. What you'll sense when you look around or drive the streets of this neighborhood is that many of the residences look the same because of this similarity of age. In fact, 83.8% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
Notable & Unique: Diversity

Canadian and French Canadian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 6.0% of
this neighborhood's residents have Canadian ancestry and 9.2% have French Canadian ancestry.
Route 19 / Clemens Blvd is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 7.4% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak French at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.7% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: People
The Route 19 / Clemens Blvd neighborhood has a greater percentage
of children living in poverty (88.6%) than found in

neighborhood in particular, the problem can be considered acute.

in 95.6% of America's neighborhoods.
