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.

Astoundingly, the Drake Ave SW / Triana Blvd SW neighborhood has one of the highest
concentrations of divorcees living here than of any neighborhood, a
higher concentration than NeighborhoodScout found in 98.9%
of U.S. neighborhoods. This may be because people living here divorce
more often than others, or that divorced people move here after they
become divorced. If you are divorced, you will be in good company in
this particular Huntsville neighborhood.

average per capita income lower than 96.9% of the neighborhoods

of children living in poverty (75.9%) than found in

is one of the challenges facing America, and the world, and in this
neighborhood in particular, the problem can be considered acute.

are often the backbone of the local economy. In the Drake Ave SW / Triana Blvd SW

service workers than 98.5% of all American neighborhoods.

Furthermore, the Drake Ave SW / Triana Blvd SW 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.
