Many things matter about a neighborhood, but the first thing most people notice
is the way a neighborhood looks and its particular character. For example, one
might notice whether the buildings all date from a certain time period or whether
shop signs are in multiple languages. This particular neighborhood in Lincoln,
the S 10th St / A St neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.
Notable & Unique: People
One of the most interesting things about the S 10th St / A St
neighborhood is that it has a greater concentration of residents who live
alone than most all neighborhoods in America. With 62.6% of the

99.5% of the neighborhoods in America.

of children living in poverty (60.4%) than found in
95.5% of all U.S. neighborhoods. Children living in poverty
is one of the challenges facing America, and the world, and in this
neighborhood in particular, the problem can be considered acute.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
Would you like to be able to ride your bike to work? If you are attracted
to the idea of getting a little exercise of the two-wheeled type while

alternatively, a great and realistic option. NeighborhoodScout's analysis
revealed that the S 10th St / A St neighborhood is a fantastic
option for bicycle commuters, as 6.3% of commuters here do ride
their bikes to and from work on a daily basis. This is a higher amount
than we found in 98.4% of the neighborhoods in America.

Notable & Unique: Diversity
Significantly, 1.0% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Navajo at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 98.3% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
The freedom of moving to new places versus the comfort of home. How much
and how often people move not only can create diverse and worldly neighborhoods,
but simultaneously it can produce a loss of intimacy with one's surroundings
and a lack of connectedness to one's neighbors. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive
research has identified this neighborhood as unique with regard to the
transience of its populace.
In the S 10th St / A St neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 97.4% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
Notable & Unique: Car Ownership
Most American households own a car or other vehicle. Many own two cars
or perhaps three. In the United States, it is useful to have an automobile
not only for commuting, but also for shopping and getting to other services
one needs. But NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed that households in
the S 10th St / A St neighborhood have a highly unusual car ownership.
25.1% 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, the S 10th St / A 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 92.5% 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.
Furthermore, renter-occupied real estate is dominant in the S 10th St / A St neighborhood. The percentage of rental real estate here, according to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, is 93.0%, which is higher than 97.8% 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.
Also of note, the real estate in the S 10th St / A St neighborhood really stands out in the way it looks for a unique reason: this neighborhood has a higher proportion of apartment complexes or high-rise apartments than nearly every neighborhood in the country. Most neighborhoods are a mixture of real estate and housing types, but here it is almost entirely dominated by big apartment buildings and complexes. In fact, 74.1% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 96.5% of American neighborhoods.
