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: Modes of Transportation
In the E 16th Ave / Geneva St neighborhood, carpooling is still a popular
way to get to and from work. NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals that
26.7% of commuters carpool here, which is more than in
98.8% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Also, more people ride the bus in this neighborhood each day to get to work
than 98.5% of U.S. neighborhoods.
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 E 16th Ave / Geneva St
In the E 16th Ave / Geneva 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.
What is also interesting to note, is that the E 16th Ave / Geneva St
neighborhood has a greater percentage of residents born in another country
(54.9%) than are found in 98.6% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: People
The E 16th Ave / Geneva St neighborhood stands out for having an
average per capita income lower than 96.0% of the neighborhoods
in the United States.
Also of note, 72.9% 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, the E 16th Ave / Geneva St neighborhood is unique for having just
4.5% of adults here having earned a bachelor's degree.
This is a lower rate of college graduates than NeighborhoodScout found
in 96.7% of America's neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
There are more people living in the E 16th Ave / Geneva St neighborhood
employed as sales and service workers (52.4%) than almost any neighborhood
in the country. From fast-food service workers to major sales accounts,
sales and service workers make up the largest proportion of our national
employment picture. But despite that size and importance nationally, this
neighborhood still stands out as unique due to the dominance of people
living here who work in such occupations.
Notable & Unique: Length of Commute
Regardless of the means by which residents commute, this neighborhood has
a length of commute that is notable.
Long commutes can be brutal. They take time, money, and energy, leaving less
of you for yourself and your family. The residents of the
E 16th Ave / Geneva St neighborhood unfortunately have the distinction of having,
on average, a longer commute than most any neighborhood in America.
9.1% of commuters here travel more than one hour just one-way
to work. That is more than two hours per day. This percentage with two-hour +
round-trip commutes is higher than NeighborhoodScout found in 96.5%
of all neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the E 16th Ave / Geneva St neighborhood has more
Asian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 23.1% of
this neighborhood's residents have Asian ancestry.
E 16th Ave / Geneva St is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 10.1% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak South Asian languages at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.0% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, renter-occupied real estate is dominant in the E 16th Ave / Geneva St neighborhood. The percentage of rental real estate here, according to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, is 91.0%, which is higher than 97.3% of the neighborhoods in America. If you were to buy and live in the property you bought here, you would be almost alone in doing so.
Furthermore, the E 16th Ave / Geneva 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 84.9% 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.
Also of note, one of the really unique and interesting things about the look and setting of the E 16th Ave / Geneva St neighborhood is that it is almost entirely dominated by large apartment buildings, such as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments. 69.4% of the residential real estate here is classified as such. This puts this neighborhood on the map as having a higher proportion of large apartment buildings than 95.6% of all neighborhoods in America.
