Many things matter about a neighborhood, but the first thing most people notice
is the way a neighborhood looks and its particular character. For example, one
might notice whether the buildings all date from a certain time period or whether
shop signs are in multiple languages. This particular neighborhood in Tucson,
the N Oracle Rd / W Grant Rd neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.
Notable & Unique: People
One of the most interesting things about the N Oracle Rd / W Grant Rd
neighborhood is that it has a greater concentration of residents who live
alone than most all neighborhoods in America. With 67.0% of the
households here made up of people living alone, NeighborhoodScout's research
reveals that this is a larger proportion of people living alone than in
99.7% of the neighborhoods in America.
In addition, the N Oracle Rd / W Grant Rd neighborhood stands out for having an
average per capita income lower than 99.6% of the neighborhoods
in the United States.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
There are more people living in the N Oracle Rd / W Grant Rd neighborhood
employed as sales and service workers (45.9%) 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 N Oracle Rd / W Grant Rd neighborhood has more
Czechoslovakian and Native American ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 1.1% of
this neighborhood's residents have Czechoslovakian ancestry and 4.5% have Native American ancestry.
N Oracle Rd / W Grant Rd is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 2.0% 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 99.2% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
Would you like to be able to ride your bike to work? If you are attracted
to the idea of getting a little exercise of the two-wheeled type while
reducing your carbon footprint, bicycling to work might be the answer.
But which neighborhood you live in can make this either impossible, or
alternatively, a great and realistic option. NeighborhoodScout's analysis
revealed that the N Oracle Rd / W Grant Rd neighborhood is a fantastic
option for bicycle commuters, as 7.0% of commuters here do ride
their bikes to and from work on a daily basis. This is a higher amount
than we found in 98.6% 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 N Oracle Rd / W Grant Rd neighborhood have a highly unusual car ownership.
24.5% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at
all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
95.7% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, 86.2% of the real estate in the N Oracle Rd / W Grant Rd neighborhood is occupied by renters, which is nearly the highest rate of renter occupancy of any neighborhood in America.
Furthermore, the N Oracle Rd / W Grant Rd 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.
