The average rental price in Conti St / Marais St is currently $275, based on NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis. Rents here are currently lower in price than 99.9% of Louisiana neighborhoods.

Conti St / Marais St is a densely urban neighborhood (based on population density) located in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Conti St / Marais St real estate is primarily made up of small (studio to two bedroom) to medium sized (three or four bedroom) apartment complexes/high-rise apartments and small apartment buildings. Most of the residential real estate is renter occupied. Many of the residences in the Conti St / Marais St neighborhood are older, well-established, built between 1940 and 1969. A number of residences were also built before 1940.

Vacant apartments or homes are a major fact of life in Conti St / Marais St. The current real estate vacancy rate here is 46.4%. This is higher than the rate of vacancies in 98.2% of all U.S. neighborhoods. In addition, most vacant housing here is vacant year round. This can sometimes be the case in neighborhoods dominated by new construction that is not yet occupied. But often neighborhoods with vacancy rates this high are places that can be plagued by a protracted vacancy problem. If you live here, you may find that a number of buildings in your neighborhood are actually empty.

Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

The way a neighborhood looks and feels when you walk or drive around it, from its setting, its buildings, and its flavor, can make all the difference. This neighborhood has some really cool things about the way it looks and feels as revealed by NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research. This might include anything from the housing stock to the types of households living here to how people get around.

Notable & Unique: Occupations

From major sales accounts to fast-food workers, sales and service employees are often the backbone of the local economy. In the Conti St / Marais St neighborhood, they truly stand out. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis identifies this neighborhood as having a higher percentage of sales and service workers than 99.9% of all American neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: People

One of the unique characteristics of the Conti St / Marais St neighborhood revealed by analysis is that the per capita income of residents here is lower than that found in 99.9% of the neighborhoods in America. Also of note, 82.5% 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.

In addition, single parenting is hard. But you don't have to tell the Conti St / Marais St neighborhood about it; they already know. 38.2% of this neighborhood's households are run by single mothers, which is a higher concentration than NeighborhoodScout found in 99.9% of American neighborhoods. Further NeighborhoodScout research showed strong statistical correlations among high rates of children living in single parent households, and neighborhood crime, particularly violent crime, neighborhood poverty, and, importantly, the percentage of low weight births and rates of infant mortality.

Also, the Conti St / Marais St neighborhood is unique for having just 0.4% of adults here having earned a bachelor's degree. This is a lower rate of college graduates than NeighborhoodScout found in 99.0% of America's neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Diversity

Did you know that the Conti St / Marais St neighborhood has more African and Sub-Saharan African ancestry people living in it than nearly any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 23.7% of this neighborhood's residents have African ancestry and 23.7% have Sub-Saharan African ancestry.

Conti St / Marais St is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 3.9% of its residents five years old and above primarily speak French at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher than 98.8% of the neighborhoods in America.

Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation

In the Conti St / Marais St neighborhood, walking to work is a real option for many. In fact, NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research reveals walking to and from work is the chosen way to commute for 54.7% of residents here. This is a higher proportion of walking commuters than we found in 99.7% of American neighborhoods. Get ready to put on your walking shoes if you move here!

Also, more people ride the bus in this neighborhood each day to get to work than 99.6% of U.S. neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Car Ownership

Most American households own a car or other vehicle. Many own two cars or perhaps three. In the United States, it is useful to have an automobile not only for commuting, but also for shopping and getting to other services one needs. But NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed that households in the Conti St / Marais St neighborhood have a highly unusual car ownership. 73.1% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in 99.7% of U.S. neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Real Estate

Renter-occupied real estate is dominant in the Conti St / Marais St neighborhood. The percentage of rental real estate here, according to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, is 100.0%, which is higher than 99.4% 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. Despite all of the residential real estate here in the Conti St / Marais St neighborhood, NeighborhoodScout has discovered that much of it is vacant. In resort or second-home vacation areas, this naturally occurs because homes and apartments are seasonally occupied, and empty for a portion of the year. In non-vacation or resort areas, however, this can be an indicator of property abandonment or a weak real estate market. The vacancy rate here is 46.4%, which is higher than 98.2% of all U.S. neighborhoods.

In addition, one of the really unique and interesting things about the look and setting of the Conti St / Marais St neighborhood is that it is almost entirely dominated by large apartment buildings, such as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments. 87.6% 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 98.2% of all neighborhoods in America.

Furthermore, the Conti St / Marais 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 81.2% 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.


The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income

There are two complementary measures for understanding the income of a neighborhood's residents: the average and the extremes. While a neighborhood may be relatively wealthy overall, it is equally important to understand the rate of people - particularly children - who are living at or below the federal poverty line, which is extremely low income. Some neighborhoods with a lower average income may actually have a lower childhood poverty rate than another with a higher average income, and this helps us understand the conditions and character of a neighborhood.

The neighbors in the Conti St / Marais St neighborhood in New Orleans are low income, making it among the lowest income neighborhoods in America. NeighborhoodScout's research shows that this neighborhood has an income lower than 99.9% of U.S. neighborhoods. With 82.5% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 99.4% of U.S. neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

The old saying "you are what you eat" is true. But it is also true that you are what you do for a living. The types of occupations your neighbors have shape their character, and together as a group, their collective occupations shape the culture of a place.

In the Conti St / Marais St neighborhood, 71.6% of the working population is employed in sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations, with 14.4% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in manufacturing and laborer occupations (14.0%).

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Culture is shared learned behavior. We learn it from our parents, their parents, our houses of worship, and much of our culture – our learned behavior – comes from our ancestors. That is why ancestry and ethnicity can be so interesting and important to understand: places with concentrations of people of one or more ancestries often express those shared learned behaviors and this gives each neighborhood its own culture. Even different neighborhoods in the same city can have drastically different cultures.

In the Conti St / Marais St neighborhood in New Orleans, LA, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Sub-Saharan African (23.7%). There are also a number of people of African ancestry (23.7%).

The Neighbors: Languages

The most common language spoken in the Conti St / Marais St neighborhood is English, spoken by 93.1% of households. Some people also speak French (3.9%).

Getting to Work

Even if your neighborhood is walkable, you may still have to drive to your place of work. Some neighborhoods are located where many can get to work in just a few minutes, while others are located such that most residents have a long and arduous commute. The greatest number of commuters in Conti St / Marais St neighborhood spend between 15 and 30 minutes commuting one-way to work (49.3% of working residents), which is shorter than the time spent commuting to work for most Americans.

Here most residents (54.7%) hop out the door and walk to work to get to work. In addition, quite a number also ride the bus to get to work (37.3%) and 8.0% of residents also carpool with coworkers, friends, or neighbors for their daily commute. This is a special neighborhood for the number of people who walk to work. Combining exercise, low cost, and reduced pollution, plus the chance to see your neighbors, walking to work is fairly uncommon in America but likely to increase as people try to reduce their dependence on automobiles, and this neighborhood offers that opportunity today.
