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: 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 Marin Ave / Gutherie St neighborhood has
a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.
Residents of this neighborhood must really love automobiles. NeighborhoodScout's
Analysis reveals that 34.6% of the households here have four, five,
or more cars. That is more cars per household than in 98.8% of
the neighborhoods in the nation.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
Each year, fewer and fewer Americans make their living as farmers, foresters,
or fishers. But the Marin Ave / Gutherie 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 98.1% of all American neighborhoods. This is truly a unique
cultural characteristic of this neighborhood.
Notable & Unique: People
The Marin Ave / Gutherie St neighborhood is unique for having just
3.5% of adults here having earned a bachelor's degree.
This is a lower rate of college graduates than NeighborhoodScout found
in 97.6% of America's neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Marin Ave / Gutherie St neighborhood has more
Mexican ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 64.9% of
this neighborhood's residents have Mexican ancestry.
Marin Ave / Gutherie St is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 65.3% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Spanish at home. This is a higher percentage than 96.6% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Length of Commute
Regardless of the means by which residents commute, this neighborhood has
a length of commute that is notable.
Long commutes can be brutal. They take time, money, and energy, leaving less
of you for yourself and your family. The residents of the
Marin Ave / Gutherie St neighborhood unfortunately have the distinction of having,
on average, a longer commute than most any neighborhood in America.
8.7% of commuters here travel more than one hour just one-way
to work. That is more than two hours per day. This percentage with two-hour +
round-trip commutes is higher than NeighborhoodScout found in 96.0%
of all neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, some neighborhoods are made up of apartments. Some consist of row houses, and most - by far - consist of a mixture of housing types. But the Marin Ave / Gutherie St neighborhood stands out due to the total dominance of detached, single-family homes here. There are nearly no other types of residential real estate in the neighborhood. In fact, this neighborhood has a higher proportion of single-family homes in its real estate stock than 99.1% of all American neighborhoods.
Furthermore, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the Marin Ave / Gutherie St stands out as rather unique in having nearly all of its residential real estate built in one time period, namely between 1970 and 1999, generally considered to be established, but not old housing. What you'll sense when you look around or drive the streets of this neighborhood is that many of the residences look the same because of this similarity of age. In fact, 94.8% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
