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 Briarcliffe Acres / Atlantic Beach 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, Briarcliffe Acres / Atlantic Beach 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, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Briarcliffe Acres / Atlantic Beach neighborhood, NeighborhoodScout has discovered that much of it is vacant. In resort or second-home vacation areas, this naturally occurs because homes and apartments are seasonally occupied, and empty for a portion of the year. In non-vacation or resort areas, however, this can be an indicator of property abandonment or a weak real estate market. The vacancy rate here is 77.6%, which is higher than 99.8% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
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 Briarcliffe Acres / Atlantic Beach

identifies this neighborhood as having a higher percentage of sales and
service workers than 99.3% of all American neighborhoods.

English and Scots-Irish ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 25.0% of
this neighborhood's residents have English ancestry and 4.7% have Scots-Irish ancestry.
Briarcliffe Acres / Atlantic Beach is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.1% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Persian at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 96.9% of the neighborhoods in America.
