The average rental price in City Center / Yale U is currently $1,652, based on NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis. The average rental cost in this neighborhood is higher than 71.1% of the neighborhoods in Connecticut.

City Center / Yale U is a densely urban neighborhood (based on population density) located in New Haven, Connecticut.

City Center / Yale U 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 City Center / Yale U neighborhood are older, well-established, built between 1940 and 1969. A number of residences were also built before 1940.

City Center / Yale U has a 12.4% vacancy rate, which is well above average compared to other U.S. neighborhoods (higher than 65.3% 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: People

Of note is NeighborhoodScout's research finding that the City Center / Yale U neighborhood has some of the lowest rates of children living in poverty of any neighborhood in the United States. In a nation where approximately 1 in 4 children are living in poverty, the City Center / Yale U community truly stands out from the rest in this regard.

In addition, some neighborhoods have residents that are more educated than others. But in this neighborhood there is a dramatic difference. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals that 47.4% of the adults here have earned a Masters degree, medical degree, Ph.D. or law degree. This is a higher rate of people with a graduate degree than is found in 99.3% of U.S. neighborhoods, where the average American neighborhood has 8.4% of its adults with a graduate degree. If you are highly educated, you may have much in common with many of your neighbors here.

Also, the City Center / Yale U neighborhood stands out within Connecticut for its college student friendly environment. NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals that this neighborhood is home to a number of college students, is relatively walkable, and above average in safety. In combination, this makes it stand out for a good place for college students to consider. Because a number of college students live here, this neighborhood may be close to a college campus and offer certain amenities nearby geared towards the student body. While it's not an environment for everyone, ambitious scholars can enjoy seasonal excitement between semesters and school breaks, and parents can rest easy knowing that the area has an above average safety rating. For each of these reasons, the neighborhood is rated among the top 9.5% of college-friendly places to live in CT.

Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation

In the City Center / Yale U 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 63.1% of residents here. This is a higher proportion of walking commuters than we found in 99.8% of American neighborhoods. Get ready to put on your walking shoes if you move here!

Also, if your dream is to be able to ride your bike to work each day, look no further than this unique neighborhood. With 7.8% of residents in the City Center / Yale U neighborhood commuting on a bicycle to and from work daily, this neighborhood has more bicycle commuters than 98.9% of all neighborhoods in the U.S., according to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis.

Finally, a unique way of commuting is simply not to. And in the City Center / Yale U neighborhood, analysis shows that 11.4% of the residents work from home, avoiding a commute altogether. This may not seem like a large number, but it is a higher proportion of people working from home than is found in 95.5% of the neighborhoods in the United States. One thing NeighborhoodScout's research reveals is that the wealthier and/or more isolated the neighborhood, the greater the proportion of residents who choose to work from home.

Notable & Unique: Real Estate

The City Center / Yale U 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 93.0% 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.

In addition, the real estate in the City Center / Yale U neighborhood really stands out in the way it looks for a unique reason: this neighborhood has a higher proportion of apartment complexes or high-rise apartments than nearly every neighborhood in the country. Most neighborhoods are a mixture of real estate and housing types, but here it is almost entirely dominated by big apartment buildings and complexes. In fact, 86.7% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 98.1% of American neighborhoods.

Furthermore, 94.0% of the real estate in the City Center / Yale U neighborhood is occupied by renters, which is nearly the highest rate of renter occupancy of any neighborhood in America.

Also of note, the City Center / Yale U neighborhood is very densely populated compared to most U.S. neighborhoods. In fact, with 30,079 persons per square mile in the neighborhood, it is more packed with people than 97.1% of the nation's neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Diversity

Did you know that the City Center / Yale U neighborhood has more Eastern European and Russian ancestry people living in it than nearly any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 2.2% of this neighborhood's residents have Eastern European ancestry and 5.0% have Russian ancestry.

City Center / Yale U is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.5% of its residents five years old and above primarily speak Japanese at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher than 98.0% of the neighborhoods in America.

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 City Center / Yale U neighborhood have a highly unusual car ownership. 47.3% 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: 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. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research has identified this neighborhood as unique with regard to the transience of its populace. In the City Center / Yale U neighborhood, a greater proportion of the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is found in 97.2% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood, more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.

Notable & Unique: Length of Commute

Whether walking, biking, riding, or driving, the length of one's commute is an important factor for one's quality of life. The City Center / Yale U neighborhood stands out for its commute length, according to NeighborhoodScout's analysis. Residents of the City Center / Yale U neighborhood have the pleasure of having one of the shortest commutes to work of any neighborhood in America. 64.7% of the residents have a commute time from home to work (one way) of less than fifteen minutes. This is a higher proportion of residents enjoying a short trip to work than NeighborhoodScout found in 96.9% of U.S. neighborhoods. Less time commuting means more time for other things in life.


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.

NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals both aspects of income and poverty for this neighborhood.

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

That is why ancestry and ethnicity can be so interesting and important to understand: places with concentrations of people of one or more ancestries often express those shared learned behaviors and this gives each neighborhood its own culture. Even different neighborhoods in the same city can have drastically different cultures.

Getting to Work
