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
The types of households in a neighborhood can tell a lot about the character
and lifestyle of those living here. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis
reveals that this neighborhood, above nearly every neighborhood in America,
has a greater percentage of its residents living alone: 66.9%. This
is a higher percent living alone than we found in 99.7% of
all U.S. neighborhoods. Often residents who live alone are new arrivals
to an area who are single, and often senior citizens who have lost a spouse.
In addition, if knowledge is power, then imagine the cumulative power of one neighborhood
where many of the adults have earned an advanced degree, such as a Masters,
law degree, medical degree, or even a Ph.D. This is certainly the case in
the State St / George St neighborhood, where 44.6% have
earned an advanced degree. Compare that to the average neighborhood in
America, where just 8.4% of adults have completed a post-graduate degree,
and you can see why this neighborhood is a stand out. In fact, this neighborhood
has a higher rate of adults with an advanced degree than 99.0%
of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
In the State St / George St 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 47.4%
of residents here. This is a higher proportion of walking commuters than
we found in 99.5% of American neighborhoods. Get ready
to put on your walking shoes if you move here!
Also, would you like to be able to ride your bike to work? If you are attracted
to the idea of getting a little exercise of the two-wheeled type while
reducing your carbon footprint, bicycling to work might be the answer.
But which neighborhood you live in can make this either impossible, or
alternatively, a great and realistic option. NeighborhoodScout's analysis
revealed that the State St / George St neighborhood is a fantastic
option for bicycle commuters, as 5.3% of commuters here do ride
their bikes to and from work on a daily basis. This is a higher amount
than we found in 97.8% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
Executives, managers and professionals make up 77.1% of the workforce
in the State St / George St neighborhood which, according to
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis, is a higher proportion of such
high-level people than is found in 99.5% of the neighborhoods
in America. For this reason, this neighborhood really stands out as unique.
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 State St / George St neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 97.6% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
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 State St / George St neighborhood has
a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.
36.8% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at
all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
97.6% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the State St / George St neighborhood has more
Eastern European ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 1.0% of
this neighborhood's residents have Eastern European ancestry.
State St / George St is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 5.3% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Hindi, which is the official language of India at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.5% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, one of the really unique and interesting things about the look and setting of the State St / George St neighborhood is that it is almost entirely dominated by large apartment buildings, such as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments. 96.4% 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 99.5% of all neighborhoods in America.
Furthermore, the State St / George 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 95.3% 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, 95.6% of the real estate in the State St / George St neighborhood is occupied by renters, which is nearly the highest rate of renter occupancy of any neighborhood in America.
