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
One of the unique characteristics of the N Rome Ave / W Green St
neighborhood revealed by analysis is that the per capita income of
residents here is lower than that found in 99.9% of the neighborhoods
Also of note, 77.3% 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, whether by choice, divorce, or unplanned pregnancy, single moms may have
the toughest job in the book. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals
that the N Rome Ave / W Green St neighborhood has more single mother
households than 99.9% of the neighborhoods in the U.S.
Often high concentrations of single mother homes can be a strong indicator
of family and social issues such as poverty, high rates of school dropouts,
crime, and other societal problems.
Also, neighborhoodScout's exclusive research revealed that 97.8%
of the adult residents in the N Rome Ave / W Green St neighborhood do
not have a 4-year college degree, which is a lower rate of college graduated
adults than found in 98.5% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Diversity

Cuban and Puerto Rican ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 5.2% of
this neighborhood's residents have Cuban ancestry and 17.2% have Puerto Rican ancestry.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
There are more people living in the N Rome Ave / W Green St neighborhood
employed as sales and service workers (51.8%) than almost any neighborhood
in the country. From fast-food service workers to major sales accounts,
sales and service workers make up the largest proportion of our national
employment picture. But despite that size and importance nationally, this
neighborhood still stands out as unique due to the dominance of people
living here who work in such occupations.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
More people ride the bus in this neighborhood each day to get to work
than 96.3% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Car Ownership
American households most often have a car, and regularly they have two or
three. But households in the N Rome Ave / W Green St neighborhood buck
24.9% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at
all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
95.8% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, 98.6% of the real estate in the N Rome Ave / W Green St neighborhood is occupied by renters, which is nearly the highest rate of renter occupancy of any neighborhood in America.
Furthermore, one of the really unique and interesting things about the look and setting of the N Rome Ave / W Green St neighborhood is that it is almost entirely dominated by large apartment buildings, such as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments. 70.7% 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 95.9% of all neighborhoods in America.
Also of note, the N Rome Ave / W Green 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 82.2% 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.
