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
The E Hardy Rd / Rankin Rd neighborhood is unique for having just
3.3% of adults here having earned a bachelor's degree.
This is a lower rate of college graduates than NeighborhoodScout found
in 97.9% of America's neighborhoods.
In addition, the E Hardy Rd / Rankin Rd neighborhood has a greater percentage
of children living in poverty (61.0%) than found in
95.6% of all U.S. neighborhoods. Children living in poverty
is one of the challenges facing America, and the world, and in this
neighborhood in particular, the problem can be considered acute.
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 E Hardy Rd / Rankin Rd neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 95.8% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the E Hardy Rd / Rankin Rd neighborhood has more
Cuban ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 1.8% of
this neighborhood's residents have Cuban ancestry.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, the real estate in the E Hardy Rd / Rankin Rd 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, 77.4% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 96.9% of American neighborhoods.
Furthermore, 87.0% of the real estate in the E Hardy Rd / Rankin Rd neighborhood is occupied by renters, which is nearly the highest rate of renter occupancy of any neighborhood in America.
Also of note, the E Hardy Rd / Rankin Rd 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 81.3% 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.
