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 N Walker Ave / NW 7th St
neighborhood is that it has a greater concentration of residents who live
alone than most all neighborhoods in America. With 67.0% 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
99.8% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
Do you like to be surrounded by people from all over the country or world,
with different perspectives and life experiences? Or do you instead prefer
to be in a neighborhood where most residents have lived there for a long
time, creating a sense of cohesiveness? NeighborhoodScout's analysis
reveals that this neighborhood stands out among American neighborhoods
for the uniqueness of the mobility of its residents.
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
The N Walker Ave / NW 7th St neighborhood stands out nationally for having
a greater proportion of its residents active in the military than
97.2% of other U.S. neighborhoods. If you come here, you
will notice military people active in their jobs, going to and from work,
and in plain clothes out and about the neighborhood.
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, 91.1% of the real estate in the N Walker Ave / NW 7th St neighborhood is occupied by renters, which is nearly the highest rate of renter occupancy of any neighborhood in America.
