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: Modes of Transportation
More people ride the bus in this neighborhood each day to get to work
than 99.7% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: People
The types of households in a neighborhood can tell a lot about the character
and lifestyle of those living here. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis
reveals that this neighborhood, above nearly every neighborhood in America,
has a greater percentage of its residents living alone: 54.5%. This
is a higher percent living alone than we found in 98.4% of
all U.S. neighborhoods. Often residents who live alone are new arrivals
to an area who are single, and often senior citizens who have lost a spouse.
In addition, the E 71st Pl / S Constance Ave neighborhood has a greater percentage
of children living in poverty (60.8%) than found in
95.6% of all U.S. neighborhoods. Children living in poverty
is one of the challenges facing America, and the world, and in this
neighborhood in particular, the problem can be considered acute.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
If you like crowded places, then you will probably enjoy the E 71st Pl / S Constance Ave neighborhood. According to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive data analysis, this neighborhood is more densely populated than 96.8% of neighborhoods in the U.S., with 27,671 people per square mile living here. Even if you drive or take transit to your place of employment, many
people enjoy being able to walk in their neighborhood. What many people
don't realize is that most of America's premier vacation locations are
also very walkable. The E 71st Pl / S Constance Ave neighborhood is among
the top 5% of American neighborhoods in terms of walkability.
In addition, 83.9% of the real estate in the E 71st Pl / S Constance Ave 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 E 71st Pl / S Constance Ave neighborhood has more
African and Sub-Saharan African ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 19.5% of
this neighborhood's residents have African ancestry and 26.2% have Sub-Saharan African ancestry.
E 71st Pl / S Constance Ave is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 5.8% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak African languages at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.1% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Length of Commute
Regardless of the means by which residents commute, this neighborhood has
a length of commute that is notable.
Long commutes can be brutal. They take time, money, and energy, leaving less
of you for yourself and your family. The residents of the
E 71st Pl / S Constance Ave neighborhood unfortunately have the distinction of having,
on average, a longer commute than most any neighborhood in America.
8.1% of commuters here travel more than one hour just one-way
to work. That is more than two hours per day. This percentage with two-hour +
round-trip commutes is higher than NeighborhoodScout found in 95.2%
of all neighborhoods in America.
