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: Diversity
Did you know that the S 1st St / E Santa Clara St neighborhood has more
Asian and Sub-Saharan African ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 39.1% of
this neighborhood's residents have Asian ancestry and 5.1% have Sub-Saharan African ancestry.
S 1st St / E Santa Clara St is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 9.8% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Hindi, which is the official language of India at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.9% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: People
An extraordinary 18.1% of the residents of the
S 1st St / E Santa Clara 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.
In addition, one of the most interesting things about the S 1st St / E Santa Clara St
neighborhood is that it has a greater concentration of residents who live
alone than most all neighborhoods in America. With 48.0% 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
96.0% of the neighborhoods in America.
Also, the S 1st St / E Santa Clara St neighborhood has a greater percentage
of children living in poverty (61.7%) than found in
95.9% 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.

(16.1%) 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: 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 S 1st St / E Santa Clara St neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 96.3% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
What is also interesting to note, is that the S 1st St / E Santa Clara St
neighborhood has a greater percentage of residents born in another country
(44.0%) than are found in 95.9% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, the S 1st St / E Santa Clara 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 93.1% 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.
Furthermore, the real estate in the S 1st St / E Santa Clara St 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, 85.5% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 98.0% of American neighborhoods.
Also of note, 89.1% of the real estate in the S 1st St / E Santa Clara St neighborhood is occupied by renters, which is nearly the highest rate of renter occupancy of any neighborhood in America.
