Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

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

If you like crowded places, then you will probably enjoy the the Collins Ave / 31st St neighborhood. According to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive data analysis, this neighborhood is more densely populated than 95.5% of neighborhoods in the U.S., with 21,817 people per square mile living here. Do you like a coastal setting? If so, this neighborhood may be to your liking. The Collins Ave / 31st St 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, Collins Ave / 31st St 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, one of the really unique and interesting things about the look and setting of the Collins Ave / 31st St neighborhood is that it is almost entirely dominated by large apartment buildings, such as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments. 98.8% of the residential real estate here is classified as such. This puts this neighborhood on the map as having a higher proportion of large apartment buildings than 99.8% of all neighborhoods in America.

Furthermore, the Collins Ave / 31st St 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 93.8% 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.

Also of note, renter-occupied real estate is dominant in the Collins Ave / 31st St neighborhood. The percentage of rental real estate here, according to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, is 83.4%, which is higher than 95.1% of the neighborhoods in America. If you were to buy and live in the property you bought here, you would be almost alone in doing so. Despite all of the residential real estate here in the Collins Ave / 31st St 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 48.2%, which is higher than 98.3% of all U.S. neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: People

Divorcees may find friendship and understanding in this neighborhood, as 24.7% of its residents are divorced. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis found that this divorce rate is higher than in 99.5% of the neighborhoods in America.

Collins Ave / 31st St is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 79.3% of its residents five years old and above primarily speak Spanish at home. This is a higher percentage than 98.5% of all U.S. neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability

Some neighborhoods have more internal cohesiveness than others. While other neighborhoods feel like a collection of strangers who just happen to live near each other. Sometimes this comes down to not only the personalities of the people in a place, but how long people have been together in that neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's research has revealed some interesting things about the rootedness of people in the Collins Ave / 31st St neighborhood. What is interesting to note, is that the Collins Ave / 31st St neighborhood has a greater percentage of residents born in another country (69.0%) than are found in 99.8% of all U.S. neighborhoods.


The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income

There are two complementary measures for understanding the income of a neighborhood's residents: the average and the extremes. While a neighborhood may be relatively wealthy overall, it is equally important to understand the rate of people - particularly children - who are living at or below the federal poverty line, which is extremely low income. Some neighborhoods with a lower average income may actually have a lower childhood poverty rate than another with a higher average income, and this helps us understand the conditions and character of a neighborhood.

The neighbors in the Collins Ave / 31st St neighborhood in Miami Beach are low income, making it among the lowest income neighborhoods in America. NeighborhoodScout's research shows that this neighborhood has an income lower than 89.9% of U.S. neighborhoods. With 35.4% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 83.5% of U.S. neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

The old saying "you are what you eat" is true. But it is also true that you are what you do for a living. The types of occupations your neighbors have shape their character, and together as a group, their collective occupations shape the culture of a place.

In the Collins Ave / 31st St neighborhood, 52.5% of the working population is employed in executive, management, and professional occupations. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants, with 35.2% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in manufacturing and laborer occupations (6.3%), and 6.1% in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations.

The Neighbors: Languages

The languages spoken by people in this neighborhood are diverse. These are tabulated as the languages people preferentially speak when they are at home with their families. The most common language spoken in the Collins Ave / 31st St neighborhood is Spanish, spoken by 79.3% of households. Other important languages spoken here include English and Portuguese.

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Culture is the shared learned behavior of peoples. Undeniably, different ethnicities and ancestries have different cultural traditions, and as a result, neighborhoods with concentrations of residents of one or another ethnicities or ancestries will express those cultures. It is what makes the North End in Boston so fun to visit for the Italian restaurants, bakeries, culture, and charm, and similarly, why people enjoy visiting Chinatown in San Francisco.

In the Collins Ave / 31st St neighborhood in Miami Beach, FL, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as South American (38.7%). There are also a number of people of Cuban ancestry (30.5%), and residents who report Italian roots (13.1%), and some of the residents are also of German ancestry (3.3%), along with some Russian ancestry residents (2.3%), among others. In addition, 69.0% of the residents of this neighborhood were born in another country.

Getting to Work

Even if your neighborhood is walkable, you may still have to drive to your place of work. Some neighborhoods are located where many can get to work in just a few minutes, while others are located such that most residents have a long and arduous commute. The greatest number of commuters in Collins Ave / 31st St neighborhood spend between 30 and 45 minutes commuting one-way to work (31.8% of working residents), which is at or a bit above the average length of a commute across all U.S. neighborhoods.

Here most residents (53.6%) drive alone in a private automobile to get to work. In addition, quite a number also hop out the door and walk to work to get to work (20.5%) and 9.9% of residents also carpool with coworkers, friends, or neighbors for their daily commute. In a neighborhood like this, as in most of the nation, many residents find owning a car useful for getting to work.
