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: Real Estate
What you'll find when you visit or move to this neighborhood is one of the most crowded neighborhoods in all of America. With an incredible 80,117 people per square mile, it is more densely populated than 99.4% of America's neighborhoods. 1st Ave / E 110th St is a neighborhood that is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet.
Many times, such places have amenities that bring locals and visitors to the
waterfront for recreational activities or to check out the scenery.
In some densely populated areas that are less financially well-off, the neighborhood
waterfront can be relatively industrial and less open to recreation.
In addition, one of the really unique and interesting things about the look and setting of the 1st Ave / E 110th St neighborhood is that it is almost entirely dominated by large apartment buildings, such as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments. 95.8% of the residential real estate here is classified as such. This puts this neighborhood on the map as having a higher proportion of large apartment buildings than 99.4% of all neighborhoods in America.
Furthermore, renter-occupied real estate is dominant in the 1st Ave / E 110th St neighborhood. The percentage of rental real estate here, according to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, is 89.6%, which is higher than 97.0% 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.
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 1st Ave / E 110th St neighborhood have a highly unusual car ownership.
81.5% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at
all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
99.9% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the 1st Ave / E 110th St neighborhood has more
Puerto Rican and Dominican ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 30.1% of
this neighborhood's residents have Puerto Rican ancestry and 7.2% have Dominican ancestry.
1st Ave / E 110th St is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.2% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Hebrew at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 98.5% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation

1st Ave / E 110th St neighborhood's commuters ride the train to and from work each

Also, 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 1st Ave / E 110th St neighborhood is a fantastic
option for bicycle commuters, as 3.4% of commuters here do ride
their bikes to and from work on a daily basis. This is a higher amount
