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 Mansfield E / Mansfield H neighborhood has more
British and Russian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 5.3% of
this neighborhood's residents have British ancestry and 23.0% have Russian ancestry.
Mansfield E / Mansfield H is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.2% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Yiddish at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.6% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: People
One of the unique characteristics of the Mansfield E / Mansfield H
neighborhood revealed by analysis is that the per capita income of
residents here is lower than that found in 97.4% of the neighborhoods
Also of note is NeighborhoodScout's research finding that the
Mansfield E / Mansfield H 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
Mansfield E / Mansfield H community truly stands out from the rest in this regard.
In addition, one of the most interesting things about the Mansfield E / Mansfield H
neighborhood is that it has a greater concentration of residents who live
alone than most all neighborhoods in America. With 68.7% of the
households here made up of people living alone, NeighborhoodScout's research
reveals that this is a larger proportion of people living alone than in
99.8% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
From major sales accounts to fast-food workers, sales and service employees
are often the backbone of the local economy. In the Mansfield E / Mansfield H
neighborhood, they truly stand out. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis
identifies this neighborhood as having a higher percentage of sales and
service workers than 99.9% of all American neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
In the Mansfield E / Mansfield H neighborhood, many people's commute means
walking from the bedroom to the home office. NeighborhoodScout's analysis
found that 16.8% of residents worked from home. This may not
seem like a large number, but Scout's research shows that this is a higher
percentage of people working from home than 98.9% of the
neighborhoods in America. Often people who work from home are engaged in
the creative or technological economy, such as is found in areas around Boston,
and in Silicon Valley. Other times, people may be engaged in other businesses
like trading stocks from home, or running a small beauty salon.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, the Mansfield E / Mansfield H 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 98.3% 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.
Furthermore, the real estate in the Mansfield E / Mansfield H 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, 96.4% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 99.5% of American neighborhoods.
Also of note, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the Mansfield E / Mansfield H stands out as rather unique in having nearly all of its residential real estate built in one time period, namely between 1970 and 1999, generally considered to be established, but not old housing. What you'll sense when you look around or drive the streets of this neighborhood is that many of the residences look the same because of this similarity of age. In fact, 95.6% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
Finally, vacant homes and apartments are a significant characteristic of this neighborhood. In fact, with 45.2% of the residential real estate vacant, the Mansfield E / Mansfield H neighborhood claims the distinction of having a higher vacancy rate than 98.0% of the neighborhoods in America. This can either be because much of the property is seasonally occupied, like in many vacation areas, or that much of the real estate is more permanently abandoned.
