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: Real Estate
Do you like a coastal setting? If so, this neighborhood may be to your liking.
The East Bridgeport neighborhood is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet.
Often such coastal places have amenities and recreational activities on the waterfront
that are attractive to residents and visitors alike.
In addition to being coastal, East Bridgeport is a very nautical neighborhood,
meaning that it is somewhat historic, walkable, densely populated and
on the water. This gives the neighborhood a very nautical feel,
with some seaside and shipping feel, which some may really enjoy the sights
and sounds of.
In addition, corner bodegas, stores on the first floor and apartments above, former grand Victorian residences converted into apartments, three-deckers built shoulder-to-shoulder, duplexes. Such building types define the real estate of neighborhoods dominated by small 2, 3, and 4 unit apartment buildings. Many are in older core neighborhoods of Eastern and Midwestern cities, or historic town centers in their hinterlands. If you wax romantic about the look and feel of such neighborhoods, with fresh pizza, falafel and an independent florist at the corner, then you might find the East Bridgeport neighborhood worth a close look. This neighborhood is an absolutely outstanding example of the dominance of small 2, 3, and 4 unit apartment buildings compared to neighborhoods across the nation, as they make up a substantial portion of this neighborhood's real estate stock. In fact, no less than 39.5% of the real estate here is made up of such dwellings, which is higher than 96.3% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the East Bridgeport neighborhood has more
Puerto Rican and African ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 45.6% of
this neighborhood's residents have Puerto Rican ancestry and 5.8% have African ancestry.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research identifies the East Bridgeport
neighborhood as having one of the highest concentrations of people employed
in manufacturing or as laborers of any neighborhood in America. In fact,
despite the loss of manufacturing jobs nationally, this neighborhood has
41.5% of its working residents employed in such fields, which is a
higher proportion than 96.9% of American neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: People
Single parenting is hard. But you don't have to tell the
East Bridgeport neighborhood about it; they already know. 20.5%
of this neighborhood's households are run by single mothers, which is a
higher concentration than NeighborhoodScout found in 96.5%
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.
In addition, one of the unique characteristics of the East Bridgeport
neighborhood revealed by analysis is that the per capita income of
residents here is lower than that found in 95.9% of the neighborhoods
