Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics
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: Diversity

Swiss and Czechoslovakian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 1.9% of

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

But which neighborhood you live in can make this either impossible, or
alternatively, a great and realistic option. NeighborhoodScout's analysis
revealed that the Q St / 5th St neighborhood is a fantastic
option for bicycle commuters, as 5.7% of commuters here do ride

Notable & Unique: Occupations
It used to be that most Americans lived on the farm, or otherwise made their
living from the land, the forests, or the sea. With global trade and an
economy increasingly based on providing services to one another, fewer
people farm, fish or harvest timber now than at any time in American history.
But according to NeighborhoodScout's leading analysis, the
Q St / 5th St neighborhood stands apart from most American neighborhood due
to the proportion of its residents still working in these fields. With 5.2%
of the workforce so employed, this neighborhood has a greater concentration
of such workers than 96.6% of U.S. neighborhoods.
The Neighbors: Income
How wealthy a neighborhood is, from very wealthy, to middle income, to low
income is very formative with regard to the personality and character of a
neighborhood. Equally important is the rate of people, particularly children,
who live below the federal poverty line. In some wealthy gated communities,
the areas immediately surrounding can have high rates of childhood poverty,
which indicates other social issues. NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals
both aspects of income and poverty for this neighborhood.

The Neighbors: Occupations

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

our houses of worship, and much of our culture – our learned behavior - comes
from our ancestors. That is why ancestry and ethnicity can be so interesting
and important to understand: places with concentrations of people of one or
more ancestries often express those shared learned behaviors and this gives
each neighborhood its own culture. Even different neighborhoods in the same
city can have drastically different cultures.
