The way a neighborhood looks and feels when you walk or drive around it, from
its setting, its buildings, and its flavor, can make all the difference. This
neighborhood has some really cool things about the way it looks and feels as
revealed by NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research. This might include anything
from the housing stock to the types of households living here to how people
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
A unique way of commuting is simply not to. And in the Clearview St / Barnes St
neighborhood, analysis shows that 19.1% of the residents work
from home, avoiding a commute altogether. This may not seem like a large number,
but it is a higher proportion of people working from home than is found in
99.3% of the neighborhoods in the United States.
One thing NeighborhoodScout's research reveals is that the wealthier and/or
more isolated the neighborhood, the greater the proportion of residents who
choose to work from home.
Also, in the Clearview St / Barnes St neighborhood, carpooling is still a popular
way to get to and from work. NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals that
28.3% of commuters carpool here, which is more than in
99.1% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: People
One of the unique characteristics of the Clearview St / Barnes St
neighborhood revealed by analysis is that the per capita income of
residents here is lower than that found in 99.3% of the neighborhoods
Also of note, 78.9% of the children in this area
live in poverty; an extraordinarily high percentage compared to other
neighborhoods in the nation. In a nation where approximately one in
four children grows up in poverty, this neighborhood stands out for
the depth of the problem manifested here.
In addition, whether by choice, divorce, or unplanned pregnancy, single moms may have
the toughest job in the book. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals
that the Clearview St / Barnes St neighborhood has more single mother
households than 98.9% of the neighborhoods in the U.S.
Often high concentrations of single mother homes can be a strong indicator
of family and social issues such as poverty, high rates of school dropouts,
crime, and other societal problems.
Also, the Clearview St / Barnes St neighborhood is unique for having just
3.8% of adults here having earned a bachelor's degree.
This is a lower rate of college graduates than NeighborhoodScout found
in 97.4% of America's neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
With 7.3% of employed workers living in the
Clearview St / Barnes St neighborhood active in the military, this neighborhood has
the distinction of having a higher proportion of people in the military
than 99.3% of American neighborhoods. This is a major
shaper of the neighborhood's culture and character.
Furthermore, there are more people living in the Clearview St / Barnes St neighborhood
employed as sales and service workers (49.8%) than almost any neighborhood
in the country. From fast-food service workers to major sales accounts,
sales and service workers make up the largest proportion of our national
employment picture. But despite that size and importance nationally, this
neighborhood still stands out as unique due to the dominance of people
living here who work in such occupations.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, corner bodegas, stores on the first floor and apartments above, former grand Victorian residences converted into apartments, three-deckers built shoulder-to-shoulder, duplexes. Such building types define the real estate of neighborhoods dominated by small 2, 3, and 4 unit apartment buildings. Many are in older core neighborhoods of Eastern and Midwestern cities, or historic town centers in their hinterlands. If you wax romantic about the look and feel of such neighborhoods, with fresh pizza, falafel and an independent florist at the corner, then you might find the Clearview St / Barnes St neighborhood worth a close look. This neighborhood is an absolutely outstanding example of the dominance of small 2, 3, and 4 unit apartment buildings compared to neighborhoods across the nation, as they make up a substantial portion of this neighborhood's real estate stock. In fact, no less than 45.7% of the real estate here is made up of such dwellings, which is higher than 97.3% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Furthermore, vacant homes and apartments are a significant characteristic of this neighborhood. In fact, with 33.1% of the residential real estate vacant, the Clearview St / Barnes St neighborhood claims the distinction of having a higher vacancy rate than 95.4% of the neighborhoods in America. This can either be because much of the property is seasonally occupied, like in many vacation areas, or that much of the real estate is more permanently abandoned.
