Astoundingly, the 3rd Ave / F St neighborhood has one of the highest
concentrations of divorcees living here than of any neighborhood, a
higher concentration than NeighborhoodScout found in 98.3%

Mexican ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 54.4% of
this neighborhood's residents have Mexican ancestry.
3rd Ave / F St is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 4.6% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Tagalog, which is the first language of the Philippine region, at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 97.7% of the neighborhoods in America.

From local, to state, to federal government workers, the government can
also be a major employer. What NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed, is
that the 3rd Ave / F St neighborhood in particular stands out
when compared nationally for the proportion of its working residents who
are employed by the government. At 12.8% of its workforce, this
neighborhood has a greater concentration of government workers than
95.4% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate

Furthermore, the 3rd Ave / F St 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 87.5% 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.

This puts this neighborhood on the map as having a higher proportion of large apartment buildings than 96.3% of all neighborhoods in America.
