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 S 10th St / A St neighborhood stands out for having an
average per capita income lower than 98.4% of the neighborhoods
in the United States.
In addition, of particular note, 10.3% of the people in the S 10th St / A St
neighborhood currently reside in a correction facility, held due to
punishment for a crime.
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 98.1% 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 5.5% of commuters here do ride
their bikes to and from work on a daily basis. This is a higher amount

Arab ancestry people living in it than nearly
