Frog Hollow is a densely urban neighborhood (based on population density) located in Hartford, Connecticut.

Frog Hollow real estate is primarily made up of small (studio to two bedroom) to medium sized (three or four bedroom) apartment complexes/high-rise apartments and small apartment buildings. Most of the residential real estate is renter occupied. Many of the residences in the Frog Hollow 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 1940 and 1969.

Frog Hollow has a 16.1% vacancy rate, which is well above average compared to other U.S. neighborhoods (higher than 78.6% of American neighborhoods). Most vacant housing here is vacant year round. This could either signal that there is a weak demand for real estate in the neighborhood or that large amount of new housing has been built and not yet occupied. 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: Occupations

From major sales accounts to fast-food workers, sales and service employees are often the backbone of the local economy. In the Frog Hollow neighborhood, they truly stand out. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis identifies this neighborhood as having a higher percentage of sales and service workers than 98.6% of all American neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Car Ownership

Most American households own a car or other vehicle. Many own two cars or perhaps three. In the United States, it is useful to have an automobile not only for commuting, but also for shopping and getting to other services one needs. But NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed that households in the Frog Hollow neighborhood have a highly unusual car ownership. 44.5% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in 98.4% of U.S. neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation

In the Frog Hollow neighborhood, walking to work is a real option for many. In fact, NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research reveals walking to and from work is the chosen way to commute for 25.2% of residents here. This is a higher proportion of walking commuters than we found in 98.3% of American neighborhoods. Get ready to put on your walking shoes if you move here!

Notable & Unique: People

Astoundingly, the Frog Hollow neighborhood has one of the highest concentrations of divorcees living here than of any neighborhood, a higher concentration than NeighborhoodScout found in 97.8% of U.S. neighborhoods. This may be because people living here divorce more often than others, or that divorced people move here after they become divorced. If you are divorced, you will be in good company in this particular Hartford neighborhood.

In addition, one of the unique characteristics of the Frog Hollow neighborhood revealed by analysis is that the per capita income of residents here is lower than that found in 97.3% of the neighborhoods in America.

Notable & Unique: Real Estate

Renter-occupied real estate is dominant in the Frog Hollow neighborhood. The percentage of rental real estate here, according to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, is 91.5%, which is higher than 97.2% 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.

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 Frog Hollow 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 40.3% of the real estate here is made up of such dwellings, which is higher than 96.9% of all U.S. neighborhoods.

Furthermore, even if you drive or take transit to your place of employment, many people enjoy being able to walk in their neighborhood. What many people don't realize is that most of America's premier vacation locations are also very walkable. The Frog Hollow neighborhood is among the top 5% of American neighborhoods in terms of walkability.

Notable & Unique: Diversity

Did you know that the Frog Hollow neighborhood has more Puerto Rican and Jamaican ancestry people living in it than nearly any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 45.2% of this neighborhood's residents have Puerto Rican ancestry and 7.0% have Jamaican ancestry.

Frog Hollow is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 58.6% of its residents five years old and above primarily speak Spanish at home. This is a higher percentage than 95.4% of all U.S. neighborhoods.


The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income

How wealthy a neighborhood is, from very wealthy, to middle income, to low income is very formative with regard to the personality and character of a neighborhood. Equally important is the rate of people, particularly children, who live below the federal poverty line. In some wealthy gated communities, the areas immediately surrounding can have high rates of childhood poverty, which indicates other social issues. NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals both aspects of income and poverty for this neighborhood.

The neighbors in the Frog Hollow neighborhood in Hartford are low income, making it among the lowest income neighborhoods in America. NeighborhoodScout's research shows that this neighborhood has an income lower than 97.3% of U.S. neighborhoods. With 41.6% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 89.2% of U.S. neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

A neighborhood is far different if it is dominated by enlisted military personnel rather than people who earn their living by farming. It is also different if most of the neighbors are clerical support or managers. What is wonderful is the sheer diversity of neighborhoods, allowing you to find the type that fits your lifestyle and aspirations.

In the Frog Hollow neighborhood, 46.6% of the working population is employed in sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is executive, management, and professional occupations, with 22.7% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations (14.2%), and 13.3% in manufacturing and laborer occupations.

The Neighbors: Languages

The most common language spoken in the Frog Hollow neighborhood is Spanish, spoken by 58.6% of households. Some people also speak English (39.2%).

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Culture is the shared learned behavior of peoples. Undeniably, different ethnicities and ancestries have different cultural traditions, and as a result, neighborhoods with concentrations of residents of one or another ethnicities or ancestries will express those cultures. It is what makes the North End in Boston so fun to visit for the Italian restaurants, bakeries, culture, and charm, and similarly, why people enjoy visiting Chinatown in San Francisco.

In the Frog Hollow neighborhood in Hartford, CT, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Puerto Rican (45.2%). There are also a number of people of Jamaican ancestry (7.0%), and residents who report Dominican roots (3.5%), and some of the residents are also of French ancestry (2.8%), along with some Sub-Saharan African ancestry residents (2.4%), among others. In addition, 17.4% of the residents of this neighborhood were born in another country.

Getting to Work

Even if your neighborhood is walkable, you may still have to drive to your place of work. Some neighborhoods are located where many can get to work in just a few minutes, while others are located such that most residents have a long and arduous commute. The greatest number of commuters in Frog Hollow neighborhood spend under 15 minutes commuting one-way to work (41.9% of working residents), one of the shortest commutes across America.

Here most residents (51.5%) drive alone in a private automobile to get to work. In addition, quite a number also hop out the door and walk to work to get to work (25.2%) and 12.7% of residents also ride the bus for their daily commute. In a neighborhood like this, as in most of the nation, many residents find owning a car useful for getting to work.
