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 Sacramento,
the City Center neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.
Notable & Unique: People
One of the most interesting things about the Sacramento City Center
neighborhood is that it has a greater concentration of residents who live
alone than most all neighborhoods in America. With 75.8% of the
households here made up of people living alone, NeighborhoodScout's research
reveals that this is a larger proportion of people living alone than in
99.9% of the neighborhoods in America.
In addition, the Sacramento City Center neighborhood has a greater percentage
of children living in poverty (85.0%) than found in
99.6% of all U.S. neighborhoods. Children living in poverty
is one of the challenges facing America, and the world, and in this
neighborhood in particular, the problem can be considered acute.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
More people in Sacramento City Center choose to walk to work each day
(29.2%) than almost any neighborhood in America. If you are
attracted to the idea of being able to walk to work, this neighborhood
could be a good choice.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
The Sacramento City Center neighborhood has a greater proportion of
government workers living in it than 97.9% of the neighborhoods
in America, according to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis. This is
a unique feature of this neighborhood, and one that shapes its character.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Sacramento City Center neighborhood has more
Portuguese and Iranian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 2.4% of
this neighborhood's residents have Portuguese ancestry and 1.0% have Iranian ancestry.
Sacramento City Center is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.0% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Persian at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 96.5% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, the real estate in the Sacramento City Center neighborhood really stands out in the way it looks for a unique reason: this neighborhood has a higher proportion of apartment complexes or high-rise apartments than nearly every neighborhood in the country. Most neighborhoods are a mixture of real estate and housing types, but here it is almost entirely dominated by big apartment buildings and complexes. In fact, 88.0% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 98.3% of American neighborhoods.
Furthermore, the Sacramento City Center 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 90.8% 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.
Also of note, 90.4% of the real estate in the Sacramento City Center neighborhood is occupied by renters, which is nearly the highest rate of renter occupancy of any neighborhood in America.
