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
Whether by choice, divorce, or unplanned pregnancy, single moms may have
the toughest job in the book. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals
that the E 67th St / S Dorchester Ave neighborhood has more single mother
households than 98.8% of the neighborhoods in the U.S.
Often high concentrations of single mother homes can be a strong indicator
of family and social issues such as poverty, high rates of school dropouts,
crime, and other societal problems.
In addition, the E 67th St / S Dorchester Ave neighborhood stands out for having an
average per capita income lower than 95.1% of the neighborhoods

are often the backbone of the local economy. In the E 67th St / S Dorchester Ave
neighborhood, they truly stand out. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis
identifies this neighborhood as having a higher percentage of sales and
service workers than 96.4% of all American neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Car Ownership
Most American households own a car or other vehicle. Many own two cars

one needs. But NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed that households in
the E 67th St / S Dorchester Ave neighborhood have a highly unusual car ownership.
26.4% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at
all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
96.1% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
Being a walkable neighborhood can help increase property values for the simple reason that people enjoy it and value it. To put it plainly, despite our love affair with the automobile, American's enjoy taking to the streets, sidewalks, paths, and courtyards of a place to get a coffee, relax, and take in the sights and sounds. And, according to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive and first quantitative walkable score index, the E 67th St / S Dorchester Ave neighborhood is one of the most walkable neighborhoods in America.

These are some of the hallmarks of neighborhoods with lots of small 2, 3, and 4 unit apartment buildings. The E 67th St / S Dorchester Ave neighborhood really stands out in this regard, however, as it is dominated by such small apartment buildings more than nearly any other neighborhood in America.
