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 Sunny Isles Beach,
the N Bay Rd / Sunny Isles Blvd neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the N Bay Rd / Sunny Isles Blvd neighborhood has more
South American and Cuban ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 38.3% of
this neighborhood's residents have South American ancestry and 6.6% have Cuban ancestry.
N Bay Rd / Sunny Isles Blvd is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.8% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Hebrew at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.1% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: People
One of the really interesting characteristics about the
N Bay Rd / Sunny Isles Blvd neighborhood is that, according to NeighborhoodScout's
exclusive research, it is an excellent choice in which to reside for
college students. Due to its popularity among college students who
already choose to live here, its walkability, and its above average
safety from crime, the neighborhood is ideal for prospective or
already-enrolled college students. Between semesters and during
school breaks, you'll notice that the excitement here fluctuates with
the college seasons. Despite the excitement however, parents of college-age
children can rest easy knowing that this
neighborhood has an above average safety rating. For each of these
reasons, the neighborhood is rated among the
top 0.6% of college-friendly places to live in
the state of Florida.
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: 54.0%. This
is a higher percent living alone than we found in 98.2% 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: Migration / Stability
The freedom of moving to new places versus the comfort of home. How much
and how often people move not only can create diverse and worldly neighborhoods,
but simultaneously it can produce a loss of intimacy with one's surroundings
and a lack of connectedness to one's neighbors. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive
research has identified this neighborhood as unique with regard to the
transience of its populace.
What is interesting to note, is that the N Bay Rd / Sunny Isles Blvd
neighborhood has a greater percentage of residents born in another country
(61.0%) than are found in 99.3% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
If you like crowded places, then you will probably enjoy the N Bay Rd / Sunny Isles Blvd neighborhood. According to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive data analysis, this neighborhood is more densely populated than 96.2% of neighborhoods in the U.S., with 24,538 people per square mile living here.
In addition, the real estate in the N Bay Rd / Sunny Isles Blvd 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, 98.7% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 99.9% of American neighborhoods.
Furthermore, the N Bay Rd / Sunny Isles 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 95.8% 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, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the N Bay Rd / Sunny Isles 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, 81.1% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
Notable & Unique: Occupations

employed as sales and service workers (57.5%) than almost any neighborhood
in the country. From fast-food service workers to major sales accounts,
sales and service workers make up the largest proportion of our national
employment picture. But despite that size and importance nationally, this
neighborhood still stands out as unique due to the dominance of people
living here who work in such occupations.
