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
Do you like a coastal setting? If so, this neighborhood may be to your liking.
The Bayshore Ave / New Jersey neighborhood is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet.
Often such coastal places have amenities and recreational activities on the waterfront
that are attractive to residents and visitors alike.
In addition to being coastal, Bayshore Ave / New Jersey 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, vacant homes and apartments are a significant characteristic of this neighborhood. In fact, with 61.3% of the residential real estate vacant, the Bayshore Ave / New Jersey neighborhood claims the distinction of having a higher vacancy rate than 99.4% 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: People
Of note is NeighborhoodScout's research finding that the
Bayshore Ave / New Jersey 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
Bayshore Ave / New Jersey community truly stands out from the rest in this regard.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Bayshore Ave / New Jersey neighborhood has more
Lebanese and Italian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 2.7% of
this neighborhood's residents have Lebanese ancestry and 31.1% have Italian ancestry.
Bayshore Ave / New Jersey is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 2.4% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Russian at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 97.5% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
There are more people living in the Bayshore Ave / New Jersey neighborhood
employed as sales and service workers (50.2%) 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.
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 Bayshore Ave / New Jersey neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 97.6% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
