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: Diversity
Did you know that the W South St / S Parramore Ave neighborhood has more
Haitian and Cuban ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 8.4% of
this neighborhood's residents have Haitian ancestry and 1.5% have Cuban ancestry.
Notable & Unique: Car Ownership
We Americans love our cars. Not only are they a necessity for most Americans
due to the shape of our neighborhoods and the distances between where we
live, work, shop, and go to school, but we also fancy them. As a result,
most households in America have one, two, or three cars. But NeighborhoodScout's
exclusive analysis shows that the W South St / S Parramore Ave neighborhood has
a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.
47.1% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at
all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
98.4% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: People
One of the unique characteristics of the W South St / S Parramore Ave
neighborhood revealed by analysis is that the per capita income of
residents here is lower than that found in 97.7% of the neighborhoods
Also of note, 59.9% of the children in this area
live in poverty; an extraordinarily high percentage compared to other
neighborhoods in the nation. In a nation where approximately one in
four children grows up in poverty, this neighborhood stands out for
the depth of the problem manifested here.
In addition, one of the most interesting things about the W South St / S Parramore Ave
neighborhood is that it has a greater concentration of residents who live
alone than most all neighborhoods in America. With 47.2% of the
households here made up of people living alone, NeighborhoodScout's research
reveals that this is a larger proportion of people living alone than in
96.6% of the neighborhoods in America.
Also, neighborhoodScout's exclusive research revealed that 95.3%
of the adult residents in the W South St / S Parramore Ave neighborhood do
not have a 4-year college degree, which is a lower rate of college graduated
adults than found in 95.9% of the neighborhoods in America.

than 95.8% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, 89.1% of the real estate in the W South St / S Parramore Ave neighborhood is occupied by renters, which is nearly the highest rate of renter occupancy of any neighborhood in America.
Furthermore, three-deckers, duplexes, old Victorian homes cut up into apartments. Independent stores on the corner selling pizza. These are some of the hallmarks of neighborhoods with lots of small 2, 3, and 4 unit apartment buildings. The W South St / S Parramore Ave neighborhood really stands out in this regard, however, as it is dominated by such small apartment buildings more than nearly any other neighborhood in America. This is a stunning visual and lifestyle example of this type of neighborhood. In fact, 41.8% of the real estate here are small 2, 3, or 4 unit apartment buildings, which is a higher proportion than found in 96.7% of America's neighborhoods.
