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: Diversity
Did you know that the SW Ave F / S Main St neighborhood has more
Haitian and African ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 20.5% of
this neighborhood's residents have Haitian ancestry and 14.0% have African ancestry.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
It used to be that most Americans lived on the farm, or otherwise made their
living from the land, the forests, or the sea. With global trade and an
economy increasingly based on providing services to one another, fewer
people farm, fish or harvest timber now than at any time in American history.
But according to NeighborhoodScout's leading analysis, the
SW Ave F / S Main St neighborhood stands apart from most American neighborhood due
to the proportion of its residents still working in these fields. With 26.9%
of the workforce so employed, this neighborhood has a greater concentration
of such workers than 99.8% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Furthermore, the SW Ave F / S Main St neighborhood has a greater proportion of
government workers living in it than 96.0% of the neighborhoods
in America, according to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis. This is
a unique feature of this neighborhood, and one that shapes its character.
Notable & Unique: People
The SW Ave F / S Main St neighborhood stands out for having an
average per capita income lower than 99.1% of the neighborhoods
in the United States.
Also of note, 67.5% of the children in this area
live in poverty; an extraordinarily high percentage compared to other
neighborhoods in the nation. In a nation where approximately one in
four children grows up in poverty, this neighborhood stands out for
the depth of the problem manifested here.
In addition, whether by choice, divorce, or unplanned pregnancy, single moms may have
the toughest job in the book. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals
that the SW Ave F / S Main St neighborhood has more single mother
households than 98.5% of the neighborhoods in the U.S.
Often high concentrations of single mother homes can be a strong indicator
of family and social issues such as poverty, high rates of school dropouts,
crime, and other societal problems.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, three-deckers, duplexes, old Victorian homes cut up into apartments. Independent stores on the corner selling pizza. These are some of the hallmarks of neighborhoods with lots of small 2, 3, and 4 unit apartment buildings. The SW Ave F / S Main St neighborhood really stands out in this regard, however, as it is dominated by such small apartment buildings more than nearly any other neighborhood in America. This is a stunning visual and lifestyle example of this type of neighborhood. In fact, 40.0% of the real estate here are small 2, 3, or 4 unit apartment buildings, which is a higher proportion than found in 96.4% of America's neighborhoods.
