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: Migration / Stability
Do you like to be surrounded by people from all over the country or world,
with different perspectives and life experiences? Or do you instead prefer
to be in a neighborhood where most residents have lived there for a long
time, creating a sense of cohesiveness? NeighborhoodScout's analysis
reveals that this neighborhood stands out among American neighborhoods
for the uniqueness of the mobility of its residents.
What is interesting to note, is that the NW 12Th Ave / NW 1st St
neighborhood has a greater percentage of residents born in another country
(73.1%) than are found in 99.9% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the NW 12Th Ave / NW 1st St neighborhood has more
Cuban and Brazilian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 27.7% of
this neighborhood's residents have Cuban ancestry and 1.3% have Brazilian ancestry.
NW 12Th Ave / NW 1st St is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 93.0% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Spanish at home. This is a higher percentage than 99.7% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
More people ride the bus in this neighborhood each day to get to work
than 98.6% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Also, would you like to be able to ride your bike to work? If you are attracted
to the idea of getting a little exercise of the two-wheeled type while
reducing your carbon footprint, bicycling to work might be the answer.
But which neighborhood you live in can make this either impossible, or
alternatively, a great and realistic option. NeighborhoodScout's analysis
revealed that the NW 12Th Ave / NW 1st St neighborhood is a fantastic
option for bicycle commuters, as 4.5% of commuters here do ride
their bikes to and from work on a daily basis. This is a higher amount
than we found in 97.0% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
More people work in manufacturing and as laborers here in the NW 12Th Ave / NW 1st St
neighborhood than in 98.4% of the neighborhoods in America. Despite
the loss of manufacturing jobs across the nation, this neighborhood remains
a place where, compared to other parts of the country, you will find many
laborers and manufacturers.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
The NW 12Th Ave / NW 1st St neighborhood is very densely populated compared to most U.S. neighborhoods. In fact, with 30,803 persons per square mile in the neighborhood, it is more packed with people than 97.2% of the nation's neighborhoods.
In addition, the NW 12Th Ave / NW 1st St 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 93.4% 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, renter-occupied real estate is dominant in the NW 12Th Ave / NW 1st St neighborhood. The percentage of rental real estate here, according to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, is 91.6%, which is higher than 97.5% of the neighborhoods in America. If you were to buy and live in the property you bought here, you would be almost alone in doing so.
Also of note, one of the really unique and interesting things about the look and setting of the NW 12Th Ave / NW 1st St neighborhood is that it is almost entirely dominated by large apartment buildings, such as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments. 75.4% 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 96.6% of all neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Car Ownership
We Americans love our cars. Not only are they a necessity for most Americans
due to the shape of our neighborhoods and the distances between where we
live, work, shop, and go to school, but we also fancy them. As a result,
most households in America have one, two, or three cars. But NeighborhoodScout's
exclusive analysis shows that the NW 12Th Ave / NW 1st St neighborhood has
a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.
28.6% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at
all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
96.5% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: People
Of note, 62.6% 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.
