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
In a nation where 1 out of every 4 children lives in poverty, the
Roosevelt Blvd / Welsh Rd neighborhood stands out as being ranked among
the lowest 0.1% of neighborhoods affected by this global
In addition, 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: 47.6%. This
is a higher percent living alone than we found in 95.8% 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: Diversity
Did you know that the Roosevelt Blvd / Welsh Rd neighborhood has more
Ukrainian and Romanian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 2.3% of
this neighborhood's residents have Ukrainian ancestry and 1.1% have Romanian ancestry.
Roosevelt Blvd / Welsh Rd is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 6.8% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Gujarati, which is native to the Indian state of Gujarat, at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.9% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Length of Commute
Whether walking, biking, riding, or driving, the length of one's commute
is an important factor for one's quality of life. The Roosevelt Blvd / Welsh Rd
neighborhood stands out for its commute length, according to NeighborhoodScout's
Long commutes can be brutal. They take time, money, and energy, leaving less
of you for yourself and your family. The residents of the
Roosevelt Blvd / Welsh Rd neighborhood unfortunately have the distinction of having,
on average, a longer commute than most any neighborhood in America.
8.0% of commuters here travel more than one hour just one-way
to work. That is more than two hours per day. This percentage with two-hour +
round-trip commutes is higher than NeighborhoodScout found in 95.0%
of all neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, the Roosevelt Blvd / Welsh Rd 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 87.6% 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, the real estate in the Roosevelt Blvd / Welsh Rd 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, 78.9% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 97.2% of American neighborhoods.
