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 N St / 24th St 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 N St / 24th St neighborhood has more
Armenian and Portuguese ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 3.7% of
this neighborhood's residents have Armenian ancestry and 2.7% have Portuguese ancestry.
Notable & Unique: People
The types of households in a neighborhood can tell a lot about the character
and lifestyle of those living here. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis
reveals that this neighborhood, above nearly every neighborhood in America,
has a greater percentage of its residents living alone: 62.8%. This
is a higher percent living alone than we found in 99.5% of
all U.S. neighborhoods. Often residents who live alone are new arrivals
to an area who are single, and often senior citizens who have lost a spouse.
In addition, an extraordinary 15.2% of the residents of the
N St / 24th St 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.
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 N St / 24th St neighborhood is a fantastic
option for bicycle commuters, as 7.6% of commuters here do ride
their bikes to and from work on a daily basis. This is a higher amount
than we found in 98.8% of the neighborhoods in America.
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.
In the N St / 24th St neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 97.4% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
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 N St / 24th St neighborhood in particular stands out
when compared nationally for the proportion of its working residents who
are employed by the government. At 15.6% of its workforce, this
neighborhood has a greater concentration of government workers than
97.3% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, the N St / 24th 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 93.5% 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.
Furthermore, 91.7% of the real estate in the N St / 24th St neighborhood is occupied by renters, which is nearly the highest rate of renter occupancy of any neighborhood in America.
