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 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
households here made up of people living alone, NeighborhoodScout's research
reveals that this is a larger proportion of people living alone than in
99.5% of the neighborhoods in America.
In addition, the S 10th St / A St neighborhood stands out for having an
average per capita income lower than 95.7% of the neighborhoods
in the United States.
The S 10th St / A St neighborhood also has a greater percentage
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
If your dream is to be able to ride your bike to work each day, look no
further than this unique neighborhood. With 6.3% of residents in
the S 10th St / A St neighborhood commuting on a bicycle to and
from work daily, this neighborhood has more bicycle commuters than
98.4% of all neighborhoods in the U.S., according to
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis.
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 16.1%
of residents here. This is a higher proportion of walking commuters than
we found in 96.7% of American neighborhoods. Get ready
to put on your walking shoes if you move here!
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, 93.0% 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.
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.
