This might include anything from the housing stock to the types of households living here to how people get around.

Notable & Unique: Real Estate

Summer St / Neptune Blvd is a neighborhood that is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet.

In addition to being coastal, Summer St / Neptune Blvd 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 Summer St / Neptune 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, 72.9% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 96.2% of American neighborhoods.
