Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

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: Real Estate

U of Massachusetts-Boston / Mount Vernon St is a neighborhood that is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet. Many times, such places have amenities that bring locals and visitors to the waterfront for recreational activities or to check out the scenery. In some densely populated areas that are less financially well-off, the neighborhood waterfront can be relatively industrial and less open to recreation. In addition to being coastal, U of Massachusetts-Boston / Mount Vernon St is a very nautical neighborhood, meaning that it is somewhat historic, walkable, densely populated and on the water. This gives the neighborhood a very nautical feel, with some seaside and shipping feel, which some may really enjoy the sights and sounds of.

In addition, renter-occupied real estate is dominant in the U of Massachusetts-Boston / Mount Vernon St neighborhood. The percentage of rental real estate here, according to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, is 99.4%, which is higher than 99.3% 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.

Furthermore, the real estate in the U of Massachusetts-Boston / Mount Vernon 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.

Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability

The freedom of moving to new places versus the comfort of home.

NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research has identified this neighborhood as unique with regard to the transience of its populace. In the U of Massachusetts-Boston / Mount Vernon St neighborhood, a greater proportion of the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is found in 96.7% of U.S. Neighborhoods.

The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income

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.
