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: Diversity
Did you know that the E 60th St / King Ave neighborhood has more
Mexican ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 92.7% of
this neighborhood's residents have Mexican ancestry.
E 60th St / King Ave is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 93.4% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Spanish at home. This is a higher percentage than 99.7% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research identifies the E 60th St / King Ave
neighborhood as having one of the highest concentrations of people employed
in manufacturing or as laborers of any neighborhood in America. In fact,
despite the loss of manufacturing jobs nationally, this neighborhood has
48.6% of its working residents employed in such fields, which is a
higher proportion than 99.2% of American neighborhoods.
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.
More residents of the E 60th St / King Ave neighborhood live here
today that also were living in this same neighborhood five years ago
than is found in 95.8% of U.S. neighborhoods. This neighborhood
is really made up of people who know each other, don't move often, and
have lived here in this very neighborhood for quite a while.
What is interesting to note, is that the E 60th St / King Ave
neighborhood has a greater percentage of residents born in another country
(50.2%) than are found in 97.7% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
If you like crowded places, then you will probably enjoy the E 60th St / King Ave neighborhood. According to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive data analysis, this neighborhood is more densely populated than 96.9% of neighborhoods in the U.S., with 28,650 people per square mile living here.
In addition, with a real estate vacancy rate of only 0.9%, the E 60th St / King Ave neighborhood has a lower vacancy rate than 95.6% of U.S. neighborhoods, a very elite group. Such a low vacancy rate may indicate very strong real estate demand in the neighborhood combined with some impediments to increasing supply, such as zoning or existing density of development, among other potential reasons.
Notable & Unique: People
The E 60th St / King Ave neighborhood is unique for having just
4.4% of adults here having earned a bachelor's degree.
This is a lower rate of college graduates than NeighborhoodScout found
in 96.8% of America's neighborhoods.
