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: Diversity
Did you know that the Taylor St / Armory St neighborhood has more
Puerto Rican and Haitian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 54.8% of
this neighborhood's residents have Puerto Rican ancestry and 2.4% have Haitian ancestry.
Notable & Unique: People
The Taylor St / Armory St neighborhood stands out for having an
average per capita income lower than 98.9% of the neighborhoods
in the United States.
The Taylor St / Armory St neighborhood also has a greater percentage
of children living in poverty (74.8%) than found in
98.7% 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, single parenting is hard. But you don't have to tell the
Taylor St / Armory St neighborhood about it; they already know. 20.3%
of this neighborhood's households are run by single mothers, which is a
higher concentration than NeighborhoodScout found in 96.3%
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.
Notable & Unique: Car Ownership
American households most often have a car, and regularly they have two or
three. But households in the Taylor St / Armory St neighborhood buck
27.3% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at
all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
96.3% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, renter-occupied real estate is dominant in the Taylor St / Armory St neighborhood. The percentage of rental real estate here, according to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, is 94.1%, which is higher than 98.0% 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 Taylor St / Armory 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 86.2% 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.
Also of note, one of the really unique and interesting things about the look and setting of the Taylor St / Armory St neighborhood is that it is almost entirely dominated by large apartment buildings, such as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments. 76.5% 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 96.8% of all neighborhoods in America.
