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: People
In a nation where 1 out of every 4 children lives in poverty, the
Santa Fe Pky / Cimarron Pky neighborhood stands out as being ranked among
the lowest 0.1% of neighborhoods affected by this global
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: 57.9%. This
is a higher percent living alone than we found in 99.0% 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 Santa Fe Pky / Cimarron Pky neighborhood has more
Brazilian and Jamaican ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 5.1% of
this neighborhood's residents have Brazilian ancestry and 8.5% have Jamaican ancestry.
Santa Fe Pky / Cimarron Pky is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 5.9% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Portuguese at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.4% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the Santa Fe Pky / Cimarron Pky 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, 93.3% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
Furthermore, the real estate in the Santa Fe Pky / Cimarron Pky 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, 79.1% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 97.1% of American neighborhoods.
Also of note, the Santa Fe Pky / Cimarron Pky 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 84.9% 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.
