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
Of note is NeighborhoodScout's research finding that the
SW 93rd Rd / A St 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
SW 93rd Rd / A St community truly stands out from the rest in this regard.
In addition, an interesting characteristic about the SW 93rd Rd / A St neighborhood
is that there are more incarcerated people living here than 99.8%
of neighborhoods in the U.S. The United States has the highest rate of
incarceration in the world, currently with 1 out of every 100 adults in the
country are incarcerated as a punishment for crimes committed. The extremely
high incarceration rate of this neighborhood could mean that a prison, juvenile
detention facility or other correctional facility occupies a large proportion
of the neighborhood, or contains a large portion of the neighborhood's population.
Also, the SW 93rd Rd / A St neighborhood is unique for having just
5.1% of adults here having earned a bachelor's degree.
This is a lower rate of college graduates than NeighborhoodScout found
in 95.9% of America's neighborhoods.
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 93rd Rd / A St neighborhood stands apart from most American neighborhood due
to the proportion of its residents still working in these fields. With 18.3%
of the workforce so employed, this neighborhood has a greater concentration
of such workers than 99.5% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
A unique way of commuting is simply not to. And in the SW 93rd Rd / A St
neighborhood, analysis shows that 17.3% of the residents work
from home, avoiding a commute altogether. This may not seem like a large number,
but it is a higher proportion of people working from home than is found in
99.0% of the neighborhoods in the United States.
One thing NeighborhoodScout's research reveals is that the wealthier and/or
more isolated the neighborhood, the greater the proportion of residents who
choose to work from home.
Also, in the SW 93rd Rd / A 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 26.9%
of residents here. This is a higher proportion of walking commuters than
we found in 98.5% of American neighborhoods. Get ready
to put on your walking shoes if you move here!
Finally, more people ride the bus in this neighborhood each day to get to work
than 97.4% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the SW 93rd Rd / A St neighborhood has more
African and Sub-Saharan African ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 7.1% of
this neighborhood's residents have African ancestry and 7.5% have Sub-Saharan African ancestry.
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 SW 93rd Rd / A St neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 98.1% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, 99.0% of the real estate in the SW 93rd Rd / A St neighborhood is occupied by renters, which is nearly the highest rate of renter occupancy of any neighborhood in America. Despite all of the residential real estate here in the SW 93rd Rd / A St neighborhood, NeighborhoodScout has discovered that much of it is vacant. In resort or second-home vacation areas, this naturally occurs because homes and apartments are seasonally occupied, and empty for a portion of the year. In non-vacation or resort areas, however, this can be an indicator of property abandonment or a weak real estate market. The vacancy rate here is 54.2%, which is higher than 98.9% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Furthermore, if you love row houses and attached homes, you will probably really like the SW 93rd Rd / A St neighborhood. The ambiance, the charm, of row houses is something special. And in sheer abundance of row houses, this neighborhood truly stands out. The real estate here has a higher proportion of row houses and attached homes than nearly any neighborhood in America. In fact, 45.8% of the residential real estate here is classified as row houses and attached homes.
