The way a neighborhood looks and feels when you walk or drive around it, from
its setting, its buildings, and its flavor, can make all the difference. This
neighborhood has some really cool things about the way it looks and feels as
revealed by NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research. This might include anything
from the housing stock to the types of households living here to how people
Notable & Unique: People
Of note is NeighborhoodScout's research finding that the Seminole
City Center neighborhood has some of the lowest rates of children
living in poverty of any neighborhood in the United States. In a nation
where approximately 1 in 4 children are living in poverty, the Seminole
City Center 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
and lifestyle of those living here. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis
reveals that this neighborhood, above nearly every neighborhood in America,
has a greater percentage of its residents living alone: 63.9%. This
is a higher percent living alone than we found in 99.5% 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.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Seminole City Center neighborhood has more
French Canadian and Slovak ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 4.0% of
this neighborhood's residents have French Canadian ancestry and 1.7% have Slovak ancestry.
Seminole City Center is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 2.7% 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 97.5% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, the Seminole City Center 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.
Furthermore, the real estate in the Seminole City Center 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, 69.7% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 95.7% of American neighborhoods.
Also of note, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Seminole City Center 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 32.0%, which is higher than 95.0% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
