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: People
One of the most interesting things about the E 4th St / S Central Ave
neighborhood is that it has a greater concentration of residents who live
alone than most all neighborhoods in America. With 60.8% 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
99.3% of the neighborhoods in America.
In addition, one of the unique characteristics of the E 4th St / S Central Ave
neighborhood revealed by analysis is that the per capita income of
residents here is lower than that found in 99.1% of the neighborhoods
The E 4th St / S Central Ave neighborhood also has a greater percentage
of children living in poverty (69.5%) than found in
97.9% of all U.S. neighborhoods. Children living in poverty
is one of the challenges facing America, and the world, and in this
neighborhood in particular, the problem can be considered acute.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the E 4th St / S Central Ave neighborhood has more
Asian and Armenian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 42.2% of
this neighborhood's residents have Asian ancestry and 0.9% have Armenian ancestry.
E 4th St / S Central Ave is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 16.3% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Japanese at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.9% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
More people ride the bus in this neighborhood each day to get to work
than 95.6% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, the real estate in the E 4th St / S Central Ave neighborhood really stands out in the way it looks for a unique reason: this neighborhood has a higher proportion of apartment complexes or high-rise apartments than nearly every neighborhood in the country. Most neighborhoods are a mixture of real estate and housing types, but here it is almost entirely dominated by big apartment buildings and complexes. In fact, 96.3% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 99.4% of American neighborhoods.
Furthermore, the E 4th St / S Central Ave 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 95.1% 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.
Also of note, renter-occupied real estate is dominant in the E 4th St / S Central Ave neighborhood. The percentage of rental real estate here, according to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, is 83.6%, which is higher than 95.2% 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.
