of this neighborhood's households are run by single mothers, which is a
higher concentration than NeighborhoodScout found in 99.9%

neighborhood poverty, and, importantly, the percentage of low weight births
and rates of infant mortality.

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 N Rome Ave / W Green St neighborhood has
a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.
24.9% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at
all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
95.8% of U.S. neighborhoods.

Furthermore, the real estate in the N Rome Ave / W Green St 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, 70.7% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 95.9% of American neighborhoods.

With 82.2% 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.
