Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

Many things matter about a neighborhood, but the first thing most people notice is the way a neighborhood looks and its particular character. For example, one might notice whether the buildings all date from a certain time period or whether shop signs are in multiple languages. This particular neighborhood in Modesto, the Riverdale Park neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.

Notable & Unique: Diversity

Did you know that the Riverdale Park neighborhood has more Portuguese ancestry people living in it than nearly any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 5.7% of this neighborhood's residents have Portuguese ancestry.

Riverdale Park is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.1% of its residents five years old and above primarily speak Portuguese at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher than 95.7% of the neighborhoods in America.

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 Riverdale Park neighborhood has a highly unusual pattern of car ownership. Residents of this neighborhood must really love automobiles. NeighborhoodScout's Analysis reveals that 28.7% of the households here have four, five, or more cars. That is more cars per household than in 97.6% of the neighborhoods in the nation.

Notable & Unique: Length of Commute

Whether walking, biking, riding, or driving, the length of one's commute is an important factor for one's quality of life. The Riverdale Park neighborhood stands out for its commute length, according to NeighborhoodScout's analysis. Long commutes can be brutal. They take time, money, and energy, leaving less of you for yourself and your family. The residents of the Riverdale Park neighborhood unfortunately have the distinction of having, on average, a longer commute than most any neighborhood in America. 9.8% 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 97.1% of all neighborhoods in America.

Notable & Unique: Occupations

NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research identifies the Riverdale Park 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 39.2% of its working residents employed in such fields, which is a higher proportion than 95.2% of American neighborhoods.


The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income

How wealthy a neighborhood is, from very wealthy, to middle income, to low income is very formative with regard to the personality and character of a neighborhood. Equally important is the rate of people, particularly children, who live below the federal poverty line. In some wealthy gated communities, the areas immediately surrounding can have high rates of childhood poverty, which indicates other social issues. NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals both aspects of income and poverty for this neighborhood.

The neighbors in the Riverdale Park neighborhood in Modesto are lower-middle income, making it a below average income neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's research shows that this neighborhood has an income lower than 67.9% of U.S. neighborhoods. With 35.1% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 78.2% of U.S. neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

A neighborhood is far different if it is dominated by enlisted military personnel rather than people who earn their living by farming. It is also different if most of the neighbors are clerical support or managers. What is wonderful is the sheer diversity of neighborhoods, allowing you to find the type that fits your lifestyle and aspirations.

In the Riverdale Park neighborhood, 39.2% of the working population is employed in manufacturing and laborer occupations. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants, with 30.6% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in executive, management, and professional occupations (15.1%), and 11.4% in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations.

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Culture is the shared learned behavior of peoples. Undeniably, different ethnicities and ancestries have different cultural traditions, and as a result, neighborhoods with concentrations of residents of one or another ethnicities or ancestries will express those cultures. It is what makes the North End in Boston so fun to visit for the Italian restaurants, bakeries, culture, and charm, and similarly, why people enjoy visiting Chinatown in San Francisco.

In the Riverdale Park neighborhood in Modesto, CA, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Mexican (50.9%). There are also a number of people of German ancestry (12.3%), and residents who report Irish roots (6.6%), and some of the residents are also of Portuguese ancestry (5.7%), along with some English ancestry residents (5.3%), among others. In addition, 25.4% of the residents of this neighborhood were born in another country.

The Neighbors: Languages

The most common language spoken in the Riverdale Park neighborhood is English, spoken by 50.3% of households. Some people also speak Spanish (45.6%).

Getting to Work

How you get to work – car, bus, train or other means – and how much of your day it takes to do so is a large quality of life and financial issue. Especially with gasoline prices rising and expected to continue doing so, the length and means of one's commute can be a financial burden. Some neighborhoods are physically located so that many residents have to drive in their own car, others are set up so many walk to work, or can take a train, bus, or bike. The greatest number of commuters in Riverdale Park neighborhood spend between 15 and 30 minutes commuting one-way to work (33.5% of working residents), which is shorter than the time spent commuting to work for most Americans. However, there is also a significant group of residents (9.8%) who commute over an hour in each direction.

Here most residents (84.0%) drive alone in a private automobile to get to work. In addition, quite a number also carpool with coworkers, friends, or neighbors to get to work (12.6%) . In a neighborhood like this, as in most of the nation, many residents find owning a car useful for getting to work.
