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
One of the unique characteristics of the U of Connecticut-Tri-Campus / N Main St
neighborhood revealed by analysis is that the per capita income of
residents here is lower than that found in 99.8% of the neighborhoods
In addition, 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: 65.8%. 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.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the U of Connecticut-Tri-Campus / N Main St neighborhood has more
Puerto Rican and Dominican ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 26.2% of
this neighborhood's residents have Puerto Rican ancestry and 10.1% have Dominican ancestry.
U of Connecticut-Tri-Campus / N Main St is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 2.2% 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 97.6% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation

than 98.3% of U.S. neighborhoods.

(20.1%) than almost any neighborhood in America. If you are
attracted to the idea of being able to walk to work, this neighborhood
could be a good choice.
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 U of Connecticut-Tri-Campus / N Main St neighborhood has
a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.
40.2% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at
all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
98.0% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate

The percentage of rental real estate here, according to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, is 99.0%, which is higher than 99.1% 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.
Furthermore, the U of Connecticut-Tri-Campus / N Main 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 89.4% 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, one of the really unique and interesting things about the look and setting of the U of Connecticut-Tri-Campus / N Main St neighborhood is that it is almost entirely dominated by large apartment buildings, such as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments. 83.2% of the residential real estate here is classified as such.
