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: Real Estate
The Saloma Ave / Bryant St neighborhood is very densely populated compared to most U.S. neighborhoods. In fact, with 48,846 persons per square mile in the neighborhood, it is more packed with people than 98.5% of the nation's neighborhoods.
In addition, renter-occupied real estate is dominant in the Saloma Ave / Bryant St neighborhood. The percentage of rental real estate here, according to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, is 94.4%, which is higher than 98.1% 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.
Furthermore, one of the really unique and interesting things about the look and setting of the Saloma Ave / Bryant St neighborhood is that it is almost entirely dominated by large apartment buildings, such as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments. 83.4% of the residential real estate here is classified as such. This puts this neighborhood on the map as having a higher proportion of large apartment buildings than 97.7% of all neighborhoods in America.
Also of note, the Saloma Ave / Bryant 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 82.0% 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.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
The freedom of moving to new places versus the comfort of home. How much
and how often people move not only can create diverse and worldly neighborhoods,
but simultaneously it can produce a loss of intimacy with one's surroundings
and a lack of connectedness to one's neighbors. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive
research has identified this neighborhood as unique with regard to the
transience of its populace.
What is interesting to note, is that the Saloma Ave / Bryant St
neighborhood has a greater percentage of residents born in another country
(53.6%) than are found in 98.5% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
Each year, fewer and fewer Americans make their living as farmers, foresters,
or fishers. But the Saloma Ave / Bryant St neighborhood truly stands
out among U.S. neighborhoods. According to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis,
this neighborhood has a greater proportion of farmers, foresters, or fishers
than 98.5% of all American neighborhoods. This is truly a unique
cultural characteristic of this neighborhood.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Saloma Ave / Bryant St neighborhood has more
Mexican ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 69.0% of
this neighborhood's residents have Mexican ancestry.
Saloma Ave / Bryant St is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 79.4% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Spanish at home. This is a higher percentage than 98.5% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
Our research revealed that more commuters here take the bus to work
(16.0% ride the bus) than 95.3% of all American
neighborhoods. If you like the idea of leaving your car and home and
hopping the bus to work, this might be a good neighborhood for you to
Notable & Unique: People
Single parenting is hard. But you don't have to tell the
Saloma Ave / Bryant St neighborhood about it; they already know. 18.7%
of this neighborhood's households are run by single mothers, which is a
higher concentration than NeighborhoodScout found in 95.0%
of American neighborhoods. Further NeighborhoodScout research showed strong
statistical correlations among high rates of children living in single
parent households, and neighborhood crime, particularly violent crime,
neighborhood poverty, and, importantly, the percentage of low weight births
and rates of infant mortality.
Notable & Unique: Car Ownership
We Americans love our cars. Not only are they a necessity for most Americans
due to the shape of our neighborhoods and the distances between where we
live, work, shop, and go to school, but we also fancy them. As a result,
most households in America have one, two, or three cars. But NeighborhoodScout's
exclusive analysis shows that the Saloma Ave / Bryant St neighborhood has
a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.
21.6% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at
all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
95.0% of U.S. neighborhoods.
