has a greater percentage of its residents living alone: 62.6%. This

is one of the challenges facing America, and the world, and in this

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

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.
