Lackawanna Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Reminiscent of the days when streetcars and railroad shops lined its streets, the neighborhood of Lackawanna exists now as a primarily residential location of urban Jacksonville, Florida. Today, commercial shops and restaurants inhabit the former railroad shops of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
Lackawanna is situated in Duval County, located next to the old rail yards, near Interstate Highway 10 and McDuff Avenue. Its accessibility to those major roadways make travel in and around town efficient, as well as making it easily reachable from downtown and surrounding Jacksonville neighborhoods.
As is typical of urban Jacksonville, Lackawanna was plotted out in an orderly grid-like fashion, making navigation easy for the newcomer or resident alike. Centralized public spaces and narrow residential lots that maximize space are also characteristics of Lackawanna and the neighboring inner city communities. Lackawanna is also home to several churches, including the River City Church and the Temple at One Accord Ministries International.
The residents of Lackawanna send their children to Lackawanna Elementary School and then on to Lackawanna High School. The average listing price for homes varies, but is around $40,000. Lackawanna is one of the most walkable neighborhoods in Jacksonville.
Its proximity to downtown Jacksonville makes it a prime location for residents employed in the surrounding areas. Its location also provides easy access for residents to get to the abundance of parks and museums in Duval County and the greater Jacksonville area.
