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.

Dominican and Sub-Saharan African ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 28.8% of
this neighborhood's residents have Dominican ancestry and 10.1% have Sub-Saharan African ancestry.
Tremont St / Hammond St is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 9.6% of its residents five years old and above primarily

higher concentration than NeighborhoodScout found in 99.4%
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,

sales and service workers make up the largest proportion of our national
employment picture. But despite that size and importance nationally, this
neighborhood still stands out as unique due to the dominance of people
living here who work in such occupations.
Notable & Unique: Car Ownership
We Americans love our cars. Not only are they a necessity for most Americans
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 Tremont St / Hammond St neighborhood has
a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.

all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
97.7% of U.S. neighborhoods.
