Notable & Unique: Real Estate
Do you like a coastal setting? If so, this neighborhood may be to your liking.
The Pasadena Ave S / Gulfport Blvd S 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, Pasadena Ave S / Gulfport Blvd S 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 Pasadena Ave S / Gulfport Blvd S 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, 83.0% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 97.7% of American neighborhoods.
Furthermore, the Pasadena Ave S / Gulfport Blvd S 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 88.2% 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, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Pasadena Ave S / Gulfport Blvd S 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 35.8%, which is higher than 96.3% of all U.S. neighborhoods.

Of note is NeighborhoodScout's research finding that the
Pasadena Ave S / Gulfport Blvd S 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
Pasadena Ave S / Gulfport Blvd 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
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: 49.5%. This
is a higher percent living alone than we found in 96.8% 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

Russian and Greek ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 11.8% of
this neighborhood's residents have Russian ancestry and 4.5% have Greek ancestry.

speak Russian at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.5% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
It used to be that most Americans lived on the farm, or otherwise made their
living from the land, the forests, or the sea. With global trade and an
economy increasingly based on providing services to one another, fewer
people farm, fish or harvest timber now than at any time in American history.
But according to NeighborhoodScout's leading analysis, the
Pasadena Ave S / Gulfport Blvd S neighborhood stands apart from most American neighborhood due
to the proportion of its residents still working in these fields. With 4.7%
of the workforce so employed, this neighborhood has a greater concentration
of such workers than 96.2% of U.S. neighborhoods.
