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: People
Of note, 97.0% of the children in this area
live in poverty; an extraordinarily high percentage compared to other
neighborhoods in the nation. In a nation where approximately one in
four children grows up in poverty, this neighborhood stands out for
the depth of the problem manifested here.
In addition, astoundingly, the F St / 10th St neighborhood has one of the highest
concentrations of divorcees living here than of any neighborhood, a
higher concentration than NeighborhoodScout found in 98.8%
of U.S. neighborhoods. This may be because people living here divorce
more often than others, or that divorced people move here after they
become divorced. If you are divorced, you will be in good company in
this particular Sacramento neighborhood.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
If your dream is to be able to ride your bike to work each day, look no
further than this unique neighborhood. With 10.6% of residents in
the F St / 10th St neighborhood commuting on a bicycle to and
from work daily, this neighborhood has more bicycle commuters than
99.5% of all neighborhoods in the U.S., according to
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis.
Also, more people in F St / 10th St choose to walk to work each day
(22.6%) 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 government often provides some of the more stable jobs in the economy.
From local, to state, to federal government workers, the government can
also be a major employer. What NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed, is
that the F St / 10th St neighborhood in particular stands out
when compared nationally for the proportion of its working residents who
are employed by the government. At 17.8% of its workforce, this
neighborhood has a greater concentration of government workers than
98.3% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the F St / 10th St neighborhood has more
Finnish ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 1.3% of
this neighborhood's residents have Finnish ancestry.
F St / 10th St is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.5% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Russian at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 95.7% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, 94.3% of the real estate in the F St / 10th St neighborhood is occupied by renters, which is nearly the highest rate of renter occupancy of any neighborhood in America.
Furthermore, the F St / 10th St 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 82.1% 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.
