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: Migration / Stability
Some neighborhoods have more internal cohesiveness than others. While other
neighborhoods feel like a collection of strangers who just happen to live
near each other. Sometimes this comes down to not only the personalities
of the people in a place, but how long people have been together in that
neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's research has revealed some interesting
things about the rootedness of people in the N Harbor Blvd / W 5th St
What is interesting to note, is that the N Harbor Blvd / W 5th St
neighborhood has a greater percentage of residents born in another country
(58.1%) than are found in 99.0% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the N Harbor Blvd / W 5th St neighborhood has more
Mexican ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 83.5% of
this neighborhood's residents have Mexican ancestry.
N Harbor Blvd / W 5th St is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 83.1% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Spanish at home. This is a higher percentage than 98.8% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
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 N Harbor Blvd / W 5th St neighborhood has
a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.
Residents of this neighborhood must really love automobiles. NeighborhoodScout's
Analysis reveals that 36.1% of the households here have four, five,
or more cars. That is more cars per household than in 97.4% of
the neighborhoods in the nation.
Notable & Unique: People
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research revealed that 95.2%
of the adult residents in the N Harbor Blvd / W 5th St neighborhood do
not have a 4-year college degree, which is a lower rate of college graduated
adults than found in 96.3% of the neighborhoods in America.
In addition, single parenting is hard. But you don't have to tell the
N Harbor Blvd / W 5th St neighborhood about it; they already know. 20.1%
of this neighborhood's households are run by single mothers, which is a
higher concentration than NeighborhoodScout found in 96.2%
of American neighborhoods. Further NeighborhoodScout research showed strong
statistical correlations among high rates of children living in single
parent households, and neighborhood crime, particularly violent crime,
neighborhood poverty, and, importantly, the percentage of low weight births
and rates of infant mortality.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
More people work in manufacturing and as laborers here in the N Harbor Blvd / W 5th St
neighborhood than in 96.2% of the neighborhoods in America. Despite
the loss of manufacturing jobs across the nation, this neighborhood remains
a place where, compared to other parts of the country, you will find many
laborers and manufacturers.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, with a real estate vacancy rate of only 0.9%, the N Harbor Blvd / W 5th St neighborhood has a lower vacancy rate than 95.8% of U.S. neighborhoods, a very elite group. Such a low vacancy rate may indicate very strong real estate demand in the neighborhood combined with some impediments to increasing supply, such as zoning or existing density of development, among other potential reasons.
