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: Modes of Transportation
Our research shows that more people carpool to work here in the
Whistler St / Mount Cavalry Ave (43.1%) than in 99.9% of the
neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: People
Whether by choice, divorce, or unplanned pregnancy, single moms may have
the toughest job in the book. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals
that the Whistler St / Mount Cavalry Ave neighborhood has more single mother
households than 99.7% 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.
In addition, one of the unique characteristics of the Whistler St / Mount Cavalry Ave
neighborhood revealed by analysis is that the per capita income of
residents here is lower than that found in 98.9% of the neighborhoods
Also, neighborhoodScout's exclusive research revealed that 94.6%
of the adult residents in the Whistler St / Mount Cavalry Ave neighborhood do
not have a 4-year college degree, which is a lower rate of college graduated
adults than found in 95.4% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
There are more people living in the Whistler St / Mount Cavalry Ave neighborhood
employed as sales and service workers (49.0%) 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: Diversity
Did you know that the Whistler St / Mount Cavalry Ave neighborhood has more
African ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 12.1% of
this neighborhood's residents have African ancestry.
Whistler St / Mount Cavalry Ave is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 0.4% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Native American languages at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 96.7% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Car Ownership
Most American households own a car or other vehicle. Many own two cars
or perhaps three. In the United States, it is useful to have an automobile
not only for commuting, but also for shopping and getting to other services
one needs. But NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed that households in
the Whistler St / Mount Cavalry Ave neighborhood have a highly unusual car ownership.
22.3% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at
all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
95.2% of U.S. neighborhoods.
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 Whistler St / Mount Cavalry Ave 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 35.3% of the real estate here is made up of such dwellings, which is higher than 95.3% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
