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: 67.0%. This
is a higher percent living alone than we found in 99.8% 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.
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 N Walker Ave / NW 7th St
In the N Walker Ave / NW 7th St neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 99.5% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the N Walker Ave / NW 7th St neighborhood has more
Lebanese and Native American ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 1.1% of
this neighborhood's residents have Lebanese ancestry and 3.9% have Native American ancestry.
N Walker Ave / NW 7th St is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 0.4% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Mon-Khmer, which is the dominant language of Cambodia, at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 96.8% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
With 2.3% of employed workers living in the
N Walker Ave / NW 7th St neighborhood active in the military, this neighborhood has
the distinction of having a higher proportion of people in the military
than 97.2% of American neighborhoods. This is a major
shaper of the neighborhood's culture and character.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, the N Walker Ave / NW 7th 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 97.9% 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, one of the really unique and interesting things about the look and setting of the N Walker Ave / NW 7th St neighborhood is that it is almost entirely dominated by large apartment buildings, such as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments. 85.9% 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 98.1% of all neighborhoods in America.
Also of note, renter-occupied real estate is dominant in the N Walker Ave / NW 7th St neighborhood. The percentage of rental real estate here, according to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, is 91.1%, which is higher than 97.4% 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.
