Most of the residential real estate is renter occupied. Many of the residences in the E Main St / Arctic St neighborhood are relatively historic, built no later than 1939, and in some cases, quite a bit earlier. A number of residences were also built between 1970 and 1999.

E Main St / Arctic St has a 13.8% vacancy rate, which is well above average compared to other U.S. neighborhoods (higher than 71.1% of American neighborhoods). Most vacant housing here is vacant year round.

Either way, if you live here, you may find many of the homes or apartments are empty.

Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

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 Main St / Arctic St neighborhood, carpooling is still a popular way to get to and from work. NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals that 24.1% of commuters carpool here, which is more than in 98.5% of all U.S. neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Real Estate

Three-deckers, duplexes, old Victorian homes cut up into apartments. Independent stores on the corner selling pizza. These are some of the hallmarks of neighborhoods with lots of small 2, 3, and 4 unit apartment buildings. The E Main St / Arctic St neighborhood really stands out in this regard, however, as it is dominated by such small apartment buildings more than nearly any other neighborhood in America. This is a stunning visual and lifestyle example of this type of neighborhood. In fact, 51.9% of the real estate here are small 2, 3, or 4 unit apartment buildings, which is a higher proportion than found in 98.3% of America's neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: People

In addition, there is an especially high percentage of incarcerated people (2.5%) living in the E Main St / Arctic St neighborhood.

Also, neighborhoodScout's exclusive research revealed that 93.8% of the adult residents in the E Main St / Arctic St neighborhood do not have a 4-year college degree, which is a lower rate of college graduated adults than found in 95.6% of the neighborhoods in America.

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: 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 E Main St / Arctic St neighborhood has a highly unusual pattern of car ownership. 27.4% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at all.

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.
