Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

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: Modes of Transportation

Would you like to be able to ride your bike to work? If you are attracted to the idea of getting a little exercise of the two-wheeled type while reducing your carbon footprint, bicycling to work might be the answer. But which neighborhood you live in can make this either impossible, or alternatively, a great and realistic option. NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed that the Foothill Blvd / 8th Ave neighborhood is a fantastic option for bicycle commuters, as 5.3% of commuters here do ride their bikes to and from work on a daily basis. This is a higher amount than we found in 97.7% of the neighborhoods in America.

Also, our research revealed that more commuters here take the bus to work (19.1% ride the bus) than 96.7% 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 consider.

Notable & Unique: Real Estate

The Foothill Blvd / 8th Ave neighborhood is very densely populated compared to most U.S. neighborhoods. In fact, with 32,646 persons per square mile in the neighborhood, it is more packed with people than 97.4% of the nation's neighborhoods. Being a walkable neighborhood can help increase property values for the simple reason that people enjoy it and value it. To put it plainly, despite our love affair with the automobile, American's enjoy taking to the streets, sidewalks, paths, and courtyards of a place to get a coffee, relax, and take in the sights and sounds. And, according to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive and first quantitative walkable score index, the Foothill Blvd / 8th Ave neighborhood is one of the most walkable neighborhoods in America.

In addition, 89.0% of the real estate in the Foothill Blvd / 8th Ave neighborhood is occupied by renters, which is nearly the highest rate of renter occupancy of any neighborhood in America.

Furthermore, the Foothill Blvd / 8th 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 84.1% 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.

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 Foothill Blvd / 8th Ave 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 Foothill Blvd / 8th Ave neighborhood unfortunately have the distinction of having, on average, a longer commute than most any neighborhood in America. 10.2% 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 97.4% of all neighborhoods in America.

Notable & Unique: Diversity

Did you know that the Foothill Blvd / 8th Ave neighborhood has more Haitian and Asian ancestry people living in it than nearly any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 3.4% of this neighborhood's residents have Haitian ancestry and 29.8% have Asian ancestry.

Foothill Blvd / 8th Ave is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 18.1% of its residents five years old and above primarily speak Chinese at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher than 99.2% of the neighborhoods in America.

Notable & Unique: Occupations

There are more people living in the Foothill Blvd / 8th Ave neighborhood employed as sales and service workers (55.7%) than almost any neighborhood in the country. From fast-food service workers to major sales accounts, sales and service workers make up the largest proportion of our national employment picture. But despite that size and importance nationally, this neighborhood still stands out as unique due to the dominance of people living here who work in such occupations.

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 Foothill Blvd / 8th Ave neighborhood has a greater percentage of residents born in another country (42.7%) than are found in 95.4% of all U.S. neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: People

An extraordinary 11.6% of the residents of the Foothill Blvd / 8th Ave neighborhood are currently enrolled in college. This is such a large part of life in this neighborhood that the neighborhood changes a great deal with the change of semesters and is far quieter during the summer when many students are away.


The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income

There are two complementary measures for understanding the income of a neighborhood's residents: the average and the extremes. While a neighborhood may be relatively wealthy overall, it is equally important to understand the rate of people - particularly children - who are living at or below the federal poverty line, which is extremely low income. Some neighborhoods with a lower average income may actually have a lower childhood poverty rate than another with a higher average income, and this helps us understand the conditions and character of a neighborhood.

The neighbors in the Foothill Blvd / 8th Ave neighborhood in Oakland are lower-middle income, making it a below average income neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's research shows that this neighborhood has an income lower than 81.2% of U.S. neighborhoods. With 33.4% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 76.4% of U.S. neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

The old saying "you are what you eat" is true. But it is also true that you are what you do for a living. The types of occupations your neighbors have shape their character, and together as a group, their collective occupations shape the culture of a place.

In the Foothill Blvd / 8th Ave neighborhood, 44.3% of the working population is employed in sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is executive, management, and professional occupations, with 20.7% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations (18.4%), and 16.7% in manufacturing and laborer occupations.

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Boston's Beacon Hill blue-blood streets, Brooklyn's Orthodox Jewish enclaves, Los Angeles' Persian neighborhoods. Each has its own culture derived primarily from the ancestries and culture of the residents who call these neighborhoods home. Likewise, each neighborhood in America has its own culture – some more unique than others – based on lifestyle, occupations, the types of households – and importantly – on the ethnicities and ancestries of the people who live in the neighborhood. Understanding where people came from, who their grandparents or great-grandparents were, can help you understand how a neighborhood is today.

In the Foothill Blvd / 8th Ave neighborhood in Oakland, CA, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Asian (29.8%). There are also a number of people of Mexican ancestry (18.1%), and residents who report Sub-Saharan African roots (3.7%), and some of the residents are also of Haitian ancestry (3.4%), along with some African ancestry residents (3.0%), among others. In addition, 42.7% of the residents of this neighborhood were born in another country.

The Neighbors: Languages

The languages spoken by people in this neighborhood are diverse. These are tabulated as the languages people preferentially speak when they are at home with their families. The most common language spoken in the Foothill Blvd / 8th Ave neighborhood is English, spoken by 40.0% of households. Other important languages spoken here include Spanish, Chinese, Vietnamese and Tagalog (the first language of the Philippine region).

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 Foothill Blvd / 8th Ave neighborhood spend between 15 and 30 minutes commuting one-way to work (39.5% 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 (10.2%) who commute over an hour in each direction.

Here most residents (48.9%) drive alone in a private automobile to get to work. In addition, quite a number also ride the bus to get to work (19.1%) and 10.4% of residents also carpool with coworkers, friends, or neighbors for their daily commute. In a neighborhood like this, as in most of the nation, many residents find owning a car useful for getting to work.
