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 reveals that 100.0% of commuters who live in the
Bosque / Estrella neighborhood get to work each day by driving
alone in their automobiles, which is a higher proportion than
99.9% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: People
Of note, 100.0% 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, an interesting characteristic about the Bosque / Estrella neighborhood
is that there are more incarcerated people living here than 99.9%
of neighborhoods in the U.S. The United States has the highest rate of
incarceration in the world, currently with 1 out of every 100 adults in the
country are incarcerated as a punishment for crimes committed. The extremely
high incarceration rate of this neighborhood could mean that a prison, juvenile
detention facility or other correctional facility occupies a large proportion
of the neighborhood, or contains a large portion of the neighborhood's population.
Also, neighborhoodScout's exclusive research revealed that 95.9%
of the adult residents in the Bosque / Estrella neighborhood do
not have a 4-year college degree, which is a lower rate of college graduated
adults than found in 97.1% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Bosque / Estrella neighborhood has more
Native American ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 5.1% of
this neighborhood's residents have Native American ancestry.
Bosque / Estrella is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.6% 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 99.0% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, renter-occupied real estate is dominant in the Bosque / Estrella neighborhood. The percentage of rental real estate here, according to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, is 98.8%, which is higher than 99.1% 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. Vacant homes and apartments are a significant characteristic of this neighborhood. In fact, with 57.1% of the residential real estate vacant, the Bosque / Estrella neighborhood claims the distinction of having a higher vacancy rate than 99.2% 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.
Furthermore, the real estate in this neighborhood consists of more mobile homes than 98.5% of all neighborhoods in America, with 42.9% of the occupied housing here being classified as mobile homes. So if you are looking for a mobile home, or you like the look and feel of mobile home parks, this neighborhood might have the setting you desire.
Also of note, the Bosque / Estrella 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 81.0% 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.
