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: People

The North End neighborhood stands out for having an average per capita income lower than 99.7% of the neighborhoods in the United States. The North End neighborhood also has a greater percentage of children living in poverty (70.9%) than found in 98.8% 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.

In addition, whether by choice, divorce, or unplanned pregnancy, single moms may have the toughest job in the book. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals that the North End neighborhood has more single mother households than 99.3% 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.

Also, neighborhoodScout's exclusive research revealed that 97.4% of the adult residents in the North End neighborhood do not have a 4-year college degree, which is a lower rate of college graduated adults than found in 98.5% of the neighborhoods in America.

Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation

Notable & Unique: Real Estate

93.7% of the real estate in the North End neighborhood is occupied by renters, which is nearly the highest rate of renter occupancy of any neighborhood in America.

In addition, corner bodegas, stores on the first floor and apartments above, former grand Victorian residences converted into apartments, three-deckers built shoulder-to-shoulder, duplexes. Such building types define the real estate of neighborhoods dominated by small 2, 3, and 4 unit apartment buildings. Many are in older core neighborhoods of Eastern and Midwestern cities, or historic town centers in their hinterlands. If you wax romantic about the look and feel of such neighborhoods, with fresh pizza, falafel and an independent florist at the corner, then you might find the North End neighborhood worth a close look. This neighborhood is an absolutely outstanding example of the dominance of small 2, 3, and 4 unit apartment buildings compared to neighborhoods across the nation, as they make up a substantial portion of this neighborhood's real estate stock. In fact, no less than 39.5% of the real estate here is made up of such dwellings, which is higher than 96.5% of all U.S. neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Car Ownership

American households most often have a car, and regularly they have two or three. But households in the North End neighborhood buck this trend. 24.3% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in 96.0% of U.S. neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Occupations

Each year, fewer and fewer Americans make their living as farmers, foresters, or fishers. But the North End neighborhood truly stands out among U.S. neighborhoods. According to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, this neighborhood has a greater proportion of farmers, foresters, or fishers than 95.4% of all American neighborhoods. This is truly a unique cultural characteristic of this neighborhood.

Notable & Unique: Diversity

Did you know that the North End neighborhood has more Puerto Rican ancestry people living in it than nearly any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 65.3% of this neighborhood's residents have Puerto Rican ancestry.

North End is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 68.6% of its residents five years old and above primarily speak Spanish at home. This is a higher percentage than 97.2% of all U.S. neighborhoods.


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 North End neighborhood in Springfield are low income, making it among the lowest income neighborhoods in America. NeighborhoodScout's research shows that this neighborhood has an income lower than 99.7% of U.S. neighborhoods. With 70.9% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 98.8% of U.S. neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

What we choose to do for a living reflects who we are. Each neighborhood has a different mix of occupations represented, and together these tell you about the neighborhood and help you understand if this neighborhood may fit your lifestyle.

In the North End neighborhood, 37.2% of the working population is employed in manufacturing and laborer occupations. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations, with 26.4% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants (21.8%), and 10.8% in executive, management, and professional occupations.

The Neighbors: Languages

The languages spoken by people in this neighborhood are diverse. These are tabulated as the languages people preferentially speak when they are at home with their families. The most common language spoken in the North End neighborhood is Spanish, spoken by 68.6% of households. Other important languages spoken here include English and Italian.

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Culture is the shared learned behavior of peoples. Undeniably, different ethnicities and ancestries have different cultural traditions, and as a result, neighborhoods with concentrations of residents of one or another ethnicities or ancestries will express those cultures. It is what makes the North End in Boston so fun to visit for the Italian restaurants, bakeries, culture, and charm, and similarly, why people enjoy visiting Chinatown in San Francisco.

In the North End neighborhood in Springfield, MA, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Puerto Rican (65.3%). There are also a number of people of Mexican ancestry (3.3%), and residents who report Italian roots (3.2%), and some of the residents are also of French Canadian ancestry (2.0%), along with some Dominican ancestry residents (1.8%), among others.

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 North End neighborhood spend between 15 and 30 minutes commuting one-way to work (45.0% of working residents), which is shorter than the time spent commuting to work for most Americans.

Here most residents (47.2%) drive alone in a private automobile to get to work. In addition, quite a number also carpool with coworkers, friends, or neighbors to get to work (31.5%) and 11.9% of residents also hop out the door and walk to work for their daily commute. In a neighborhood like this, as in most of the nation, many residents find owning a car useful for getting to work.
