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: Real Estate
Do you like a coastal setting? If so, this neighborhood may be to your liking.
The 4th St N / 106th Ave N neighborhood is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet.
Often such coastal places have amenities and recreational activities on the waterfront
that are attractive to residents and visitors alike.
In addition to being coastal, 4th St N / 106th Ave N is a very nautical neighborhood,
meaning that it is somewhat historic, walkable, densely populated and
on the water. This gives the neighborhood a very nautical feel,
with some seaside and shipping feel, which some may really enjoy the sights
and sounds of.
In addition, the 4th St N / 106th Ave N 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 92.5% 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, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the 4th St N / 106th Ave N 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, 92.5% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
Also of note, one of the really unique and interesting things about the look and setting of the 4th St N / 106th Ave N neighborhood is that it is almost entirely dominated by large apartment buildings, such as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments. 82.6% 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 97.6% of all neighborhoods in America.
Finally, 88.6% of the real estate in the 4th St N / 106th Ave N neighborhood is occupied by renters, which is nearly the highest rate of renter occupancy of any neighborhood in America.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the 4th St N / 106th Ave N neighborhood has more
Yugoslav and Iranian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 4.5% of
this neighborhood's residents have Yugoslav ancestry and 1.4% have Iranian ancestry.
4th St N / 106th Ave N is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 2.5% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Polish at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 98.5% of the neighborhoods in America.
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.
In the 4th St N / 106th Ave N neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 97.9% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
Notable & Unique: People
One of the most interesting things about the 4th St N / 106th Ave N
neighborhood is that it has a greater concentration of residents who live
alone than most all neighborhoods in America. With 51.3% 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
97.4% of the neighborhoods in America.
