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
The types of households in a neighborhood can tell a lot about the character
and lifestyle of those living here. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis
reveals that this neighborhood, above nearly every neighborhood in America,
has a greater percentage of its residents living alone: 55.2%. This
is a higher percent living alone than we found in 98.4% of
all U.S. neighborhoods. Often residents who live alone are new arrivals
to an area who are single, and often senior citizens who have lost a spouse.
In addition, the S 10th St / A St neighborhood stands out for having an
average per capita income lower than 97.9% of the neighborhoods
in the United States.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
Some neighborhoods have more internal cohesiveness than others. While other
neighborhoods feel like a collection of strangers who just happen to live
near each other. Sometimes this comes down to not only the personalities
of the people in a place, but how long people have been together in that
neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's research has revealed some interesting
things about the rootedness of people in the S 10th St / A St
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 97.7% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
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
reducing your carbon footprint, bicycling to work might be the answer.
But which neighborhood you live in can make this either impossible, or
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 5.0% of commuters here do ride
their bikes to and from work on a daily basis. This is a higher amount
than we found in 97.5% of the neighborhoods in America.
Also, in the S 10th St / A St neighborhood, walking to work is a real
option for many. In fact, NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research reveals
walking to and from work is the chosen way to commute for 15.2%
of residents here. This is a higher proportion of walking commuters than
we found in 96.5% of American neighborhoods. Get ready
to put on your walking shoes if you move here!
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the S 10th St / A St neighborhood has more
Arab ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 3.1% of
this neighborhood's residents have Arab ancestry.
S 10th St / A St is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.2% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Native American languages at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 98.6% of the neighborhoods in America.
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 S 10th St / A St neighborhood has
a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.
23.4% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at
all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
95.5% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, 95.6% of the real estate in the S 10th St / A St neighborhood is occupied by renters, which is nearly the highest rate of renter occupancy of any neighborhood in America.
Furthermore, 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 90.6% 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.
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, 76.2% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 96.8% of American neighborhoods.
