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: 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.
In the Florida State U / W Tennessee St neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 99.9% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
Notable & Unique: People
An extraordinary 97.5% of the residents of the
Florida State U / W Tennessee St neighborhood are currently enrolled in college. This is
such a large part of life in this neighborhood that the neighborhood changes
a great deal with the change of semesters and is far quieter during
the summer when many students are away.
In addition, of note is NeighborhoodScout's research finding that the
Florida State U / W Tennessee St 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
Florida State U / W Tennessee St community truly stands out from the rest in this regard.
Also, one of the really interesting characteristics about the
Florida State U / W Tennessee St 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 4.5% of college-friendly places to live in
the state of Florida.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
In the Florida State U / W Tennessee St neighborhood, walking to work is a real
option for many. In fact, NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research reveals
walking to and from work is the chosen way to commute for 54.2%
of residents here. This is a higher proportion of walking commuters than
we found in 99.7% of American neighborhoods. Get ready
to put on your walking shoes if you move here!
Also, a unique way of commuting is simply not to. And in the Florida State U / W Tennessee St
neighborhood, analysis shows that 15.7% of the residents work
from home, avoiding a commute altogether. This may not seem like a large number,
but it is a higher proportion of people working from home than is found in
98.6% of the neighborhoods in the United States.
One thing NeighborhoodScout's research reveals is that the wealthier and/or
more isolated the neighborhood, the greater the proportion of residents who
choose to work from home.
Finally, would you like to be able to ride your bike to work? If you are attracted
to the idea of getting a little exercise of the two-wheeled type while
reducing your carbon footprint, bicycling to work might be the answer.
But which neighborhood you live in can make this either impossible, or
alternatively, a great and realistic option. NeighborhoodScout's analysis
revealed that the Florida State U / W Tennessee St neighborhood is a fantastic
option for bicycle commuters, as 6.0% of commuters here do ride
their bikes to and from work on a daily basis. This is a higher amount
than we found in 98.2% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
From major sales accounts to fast-food workers, sales and service employees
are often the backbone of the local economy. In the Florida State U / W Tennessee St
neighborhood, they truly stand out. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis
identifies this neighborhood as having a higher percentage of sales and
service workers than 99.1% of all American neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Florida State U / W Tennessee St neighborhood has more
Cuban and Haitian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 4.4% of
this neighborhood's residents have Cuban ancestry and 1.9% have Haitian ancestry.
Notable & Unique: Length of Commute
Regardless of the means by which residents commute, this neighborhood has
a length of commute that is notable.
Residents of the Florida State U / W Tennessee St neighborhood have the pleasure
of having one of the shortest commutes to work of any neighborhood in
America. 66.8% of the residents have a commute time from
home to work (one way) of less than fifteen minutes. This is a higher
proportion of residents enjoying a short trip to work than NeighborhoodScout
found in 97.5% of U.S. neighborhoods. Less time commuting
means more time for other things in life.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, this neighborhood has the distinction of having one of the lowest real estate vacancy rates of any neighborhood in America. With just 0.0% of the real estate vacant, this indicates an exceptionally strong demand for real estate in the Florida State U / W Tennessee St neighborhood, and/or an issue with creating enough supply for the demand. This could have the effect of increasing real estate prices, increasing supply to meet demand, or both.
