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: Occupations
From major sales accounts to fast-food workers, sales and service employees
are often the backbone of the local economy. In the N Fitzhugh Ave / Capitol Ave
neighborhood, they truly stand out. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis
identifies this neighborhood as having a higher percentage of sales and
service workers than 97.4% of all American neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the N Fitzhugh Ave / Capitol Ave neighborhood has more
Mexican ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 54.7% of
this neighborhood's residents have Mexican ancestry.
N Fitzhugh Ave / Capitol Ave is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 2.5% 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 99.4% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
The freedom of moving to new places versus the comfort of home. How much
and how often people move not only can create diverse and worldly neighborhoods,
but simultaneously it can produce a loss of intimacy with one's surroundings
and a lack of connectedness to one's neighbors. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive
research has identified this neighborhood as unique with regard to the
transience of its populace.
In the N Fitzhugh Ave / Capitol Ave neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 95.5% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, renter-occupied real estate is dominant in the N Fitzhugh Ave / Capitol Ave neighborhood. The percentage of rental real estate here, according to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, is 84.8%, which is higher than 95.7% 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.
Furthermore, the real estate in the N Fitzhugh Ave / Capitol Ave 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, 68.7% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 95.6% of American neighborhoods.
Also of note, the N Fitzhugh Ave / Capitol Ave 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 82.1% 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.
