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

The government often provides some of the more stable jobs in the economy. From local, to state, to federal government workers, the government can also be a major employer.

The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income

There are two complementary measures for understanding the income of a neighborhood's residents: the average and the extremes. While a neighborhood may be relatively wealthy overall, it is equally important to understand the rate of people - particularly children - who are living at or below the federal poverty line, which is extremely low income. Some neighborhoods with a lower average income may actually have a lower childhood poverty rate than another with a higher average income, and this helps us understand the conditions and character of a neighborhood.

The neighbors in the Hillcrest / Fairfax Village neighborhood in Washington are lower-middle income, making it a below average income neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's research shows that this neighborhood has an income lower than 63.1% of U.S. neighborhoods. With 68.7% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 98.5% of U.S. neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

The old saying "you are what you eat" is true. But it is also true that you are what you do for a living. The types of occupations your neighbors have shape their character, and together as a group, their collective occupations shape the culture of a place.

In the Hillcrest / Fairfax Village neighborhood, 52.3% of the working population is employed in executive, management, and professional occupations. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is government jobs, whether they are in local, state, or federal positions, with 34.6% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations (23.5%), and 18.5% in sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants.

The Neighbors: Languages

The most common language spoken in the Hillcrest / Fairfax Village neighborhood is English, spoken by 98.2% of households.

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 Hillcrest / Fairfax Village neighborhood in Washington, DC, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Sub-Saharan African (17.7%). There are also a number of people of African ancestry (12.7%), and residents who report Jamaican roots (4.8%), and some of the residents are also of German ancestry (1.2%).

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 Hillcrest / Fairfax Village neighborhood spend between 45 minutes and one hour commuting one-way to work (36.2% of working residents), longer and tougher than most commutes in America.

Here most residents (52.3%) drive alone in a private automobile to get to work. In addition, quite a number also ride the bus to get to work (24.9%) and 10.8% of residents also carpool with coworkers, friends, or neighbors for their daily commute.
