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.

The Alameda / Stockton Ave is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 2.2% of its residents five years old and above primarily

option for bicycle commuters, as 3.7% of commuters here do ride
their bikes to and from work on a daily basis. This is a higher amount
than we found in 95.9% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Car Ownership
We Americans love our cars. Not only are they a necessity for most Americans
due to the shape of our neighborhoods and the distances between where we
live, work, shop, and go to school, but we also fancy them. As a result,
most households in America have one, two, or three cars. But NeighborhoodScout's
exclusive analysis shows that the The Alameda / Stockton Ave neighborhood has
a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.

or more cars. That is more cars per household than in 95.6% of
the neighborhoods in the nation.
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 The Alameda / Stockton Ave neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is

more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
