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: Real Estate
North Beach Haven is a neighborhood that is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet.
Many times, such places have amenities that bring locals and visitors to the
waterfront for recreational activities or to check out the scenery.
In some densely populated areas that are less financially well-off, the neighborhood
waterfront can be relatively industrial and less open to recreation.
In addition to being coastal, North Beach Haven 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.
One of the notable things about North Beach Haven is that it is one of the quietest neighborhoods in America, according to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis and quantitative rating of quietness. When you are here, you will find it to be very quiet. If quiet and peaceful are your cup of tea, you may have found a great place for you.
In addition, owner-occupied real estate dominates the North Beach Haven neighborhood. In fact, according to NeighborhoodScout research, the percentage of residential real estate occupied by its owner is higher here than in 97.4% of neighborhoods in America. Vacant homes and apartments are a significant characteristic of this neighborhood. In fact, with 82.6% of the residential real estate vacant, the North Beach Haven neighborhood claims the distinction of having a higher vacancy rate than 99.9% of the neighborhoods in America. This can either be because much of the property is seasonally occupied, like in many vacation areas, or that much of the real estate is more permanently abandoned.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
If you like to ride a ferry to work, this neighborhood may be for you.
NeighborhoodScout's research revealed that 1.1% of the North Beach Haven
neighborhood's commuters ride a ferry to and from work each day, which is more than we found in
99.4% of America's neighborhoods.
Also, a unique way of commuting is simply not to. And in the North Beach Haven
neighborhood, analysis shows that 11.8% 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
96.0% 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.
Notable & Unique: Length of Commute
Regardless of the means by which residents commute, this neighborhood has
a length of commute that is notable.
Long commutes can be brutal. They take time, money, and energy, leaving less
of you for yourself and your family. The residents of the
North Beach Haven neighborhood unfortunately have the distinction of having,
on average, a longer commute than most any neighborhood in America.
12.4% of commuters here travel more than one hour just one-way
to work. That is more than two hours per day. This percentage with two-hour +
round-trip commutes is higher than NeighborhoodScout found in 98.7%
of all neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Diversity

Irish and Croatian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 28.4% of
this neighborhood's residents have Irish ancestry and 1.1% have Croatian ancestry.
