North Lauderdale, Florida Details
Founded fairly recently in 1963, it was considered an agricultural area defined by the Anderson Dairy farm and the Lena Lyons Stringbean Farm. Those grazing pastures grabbed the attention of the architect Morris Lapidus, who saw them as an empty canvas. Lapidus had already made a name for himself in the Sunshine State by creating a flamboyant architectural style known as the Neo-baroque “Miami Modern” style.
After tackling resorts in Miami, including the Fontainebleau Hotel that was featured in the James Bond Movie Goldfinger, Lapidus focused on his attention to city planning and making North Lauderdale “The City of Tomorrow.” He imbued the city’s center with curvy and whimsical touches that still survive today. Development in the late 1960s focused on single-family housing. Affordable, beachside living attracted families of wealth and those with moderate means alike and led to a building boom. Many of the city’s home stock is the result of that building boom which hit its peak in the 1970s and 1980s.
While the city still has a number of wealthy residents in the mix, the per capita income of residents is lower than the rest of the state and the country, with an annual median household income hovering around $41,932, according to the latest U.S. Census Report.
Zillow finds that the median home value in North Lauderdale is $172,300 with a square-foot cost of $128, while nearby communities have a square-foot price of $210 in Miami-Fort Lauderdale Metro and $78 in Lauderdale Lakes. The average price for rent in the city is $1,500 also lower than Miami-Fort Lauderdale’s average of $1,995.
The U.S. Census also found that there is a large population of new Americans in the city, with more than 20,000 residents being foreign-born. Cultural influences include Haitian, Latin American, Jamaican and Irish. English is the most common language spoken in the city, but Spanish and French Creole can also be heard quite often.
According to the website Neighborhoodscout, there are many occupations represented in the city, too. It is a solid mix of both blue collar and white collar, with residents working in a variety of jobs in the service industry and manufacturing. Residents work in construction (18 percent), retail trade (17 percent), accommodation and food services (9 percent) and manufacturing (6 percent).
Most adult residents have a high school degree or higher (79 percent), while when it comes to those college degrees, the ranking is a little lower (14 percent) than the national average (21 percent), according to Neighborhoodscout. Higher education is pretty easy to seek out for residents, however, because it is near several colleges or universities with an enrollment of 2,000 students, including Broward College, Nova Southeastern University, Florida Atlantic University and Lynn University.
The city is also near Amtrak stations, including ones in Fort Lauderdale, Deerfield Beach, and Hollywood all within 15 miles. The area’s public transit system is highly utilized, with many residents choosing to ride the bus for their daily commute. With so many people using public transit, North Lauderdale is less susceptible to pollution issues than other communities, according to the Air Quality Index. Actually, the city’s air quality is better on average than the United States as a whole.
North Lauderdale offers many recreational opportunities because of its proximity to the Miami-Fort Lauderdale area. Top among the attractions is Fort Lauderdale Beach, which has been ranked among the top five of all of Florida beaches. Other nearby, quieter beaches include Dania Beach and Hillsboro Beaches. For nature lovers, a visit to Sawgrass Recreation Park offers the chance to see the Florida Everglades up close on an airboat tour and Hugh Taylor Birch State Park offers activities like hiking, kayaking and biking for those that like to explore. Los Olas Boulevard is a shoppers delight, with more than 65 shops and many diverse restaurants with many alfresco seating options. The Boulevard also boasts several art galleries and is right by the Stranahan House Museum, which is another local attraction.The Stranahan House Museum is the oldest residence in Fort Lauderdale and gives visitors the chance to experience life in Florida in the early 1900s.
The city has its own parks as well, including the Hampton Pines Park, which hosts Haunted Hamptons every year at Halloween. Another popular park is the Woodville Dog Park, which provides an off- leash venue for residents’ dogs to run around and play. In total, the city boasts 17 different parks scattered throughout the city.
