The way a neighborhood looks and feels when you walk or drive around it, from
its setting, its buildings, and its flavor, can make all the difference. This
neighborhood has some really cool things about the way it looks and feels as
revealed by NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research. This might include anything
from the housing stock to the types of households living here to how people
Notable & Unique: People
One of the unique characteristics of the Linton Blvd / Jog Rd
neighborhood revealed by analysis is that the per capita income of
residents here is lower than that found in 96.8% of the neighborhoods
In a nation where 1 out of every 4 children lives in poverty, the
Linton Blvd / Jog Rd neighborhood also stands out as being ranked among
the lowest 0.1% of neighborhoods affected by this global
In addition, one of the most interesting things about the Linton Blvd / Jog Rd
neighborhood is that it has a greater concentration of residents who live
alone than most all neighborhoods in America. With 72.6% 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
99.9% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Linton Blvd / Jog Rd neighborhood has more
Brazilian and Russian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 4.7% of
this neighborhood's residents have Brazilian ancestry and 13.8% have Russian ancestry.
Linton Blvd / Jog Rd is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 2.8% 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 99.8% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
In the Linton Blvd / Jog Rd neighborhood, many people's commute means
walking from the bedroom to the home office. NeighborhoodScout's analysis
found that 13.7% 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 97.7% 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: Occupations
There are more people living in the Linton Blvd / Jog Rd neighborhood
employed as sales and service workers (53.5%) than almost any neighborhood
in the country. From fast-food service workers to major sales accounts,
sales and service workers make up the largest proportion of our national
employment picture. But despite that size and importance nationally, this
neighborhood still stands out as unique due to the dominance of people
living here who work in such occupations.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, the Linton Blvd / Jog Rd 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 99.2% 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, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Linton Blvd / Jog Rd 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 43.9%, which is higher than 97.9% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Also of note, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the Linton Blvd / Jog Rd 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, 88.8% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
Finally, one of the really unique and interesting things about the look and setting of the Linton Blvd / Jog Rd neighborhood is that it is almost entirely dominated by large apartment buildings, such as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments. 76.5% of the residential real estate here is classified as such. This puts this neighborhood on the map as having a higher proportion of large apartment buildings than 96.8% of all neighborhoods in America.
