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 Broadway / State St neighborhood has more
French and Dutch ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 23.5% of
this neighborhood's residents have French ancestry and 4.8% have Dutch ancestry.
Notable & Unique: People
The types of households in a neighborhood can tell a lot about the character
and lifestyle of those living here. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis
reveals that this neighborhood, above nearly every neighborhood in America,
has a greater percentage of its residents living alone: 57.7%. This
is a higher percent living alone than we found in 98.9% of
all U.S. neighborhoods. Often residents who live alone are new arrivals
to an area who are single, and often senior citizens who have lost a spouse.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
Do you like to be surrounded by people from all over the country or world,
with different perspectives and life experiences? Or do you instead prefer
to be in a neighborhood where most residents have lived there for a long
time, creating a sense of cohesiveness? NeighborhoodScout's analysis
reveals that this neighborhood stands out among American neighborhoods
for the uniqueness of the mobility of its residents.
In the Broadway / State St neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 97.0% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
Notable & Unique: Length of Commute
Regardless of the means by which residents commute, this neighborhood has
a length of commute that is notable.
Residents of the Broadway / State St neighborhood have the pleasure
of having one of the shortest commutes to work of any neighborhood in
America. 60.7% of the residents have a commute time from
home to work (one way) of less than fifteen minutes. This is a higher
proportion of residents enjoying a short trip to work than NeighborhoodScout
found in 95.5% of U.S. neighborhoods. Less time commuting
means more time for other things in life.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
The Broadway / State St neighborhood stands out nationally for having
a greater proportion of its residents active in the military than
95.0% of other U.S. neighborhoods. If you come here, you
will notice military people active in their jobs, going to and from work,
and in plain clothes out and about the neighborhood.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, three-deckers, duplexes, old Victorian homes cut up into apartments. Independent stores on the corner selling pizza. These are some of the hallmarks of neighborhoods with lots of small 2, 3, and 4 unit apartment buildings. The Broadway / State St neighborhood really stands out in this regard, however, as it is dominated by such small apartment buildings more than nearly any other neighborhood in America. This is a stunning visual and lifestyle example of this type of neighborhood. In fact, 44.9% of the real estate here are small 2, 3, or 4 unit apartment buildings, which is a higher proportion than found in 97.2% of America's neighborhoods.
Furthermore, 86.7% of the real estate in the Broadway / State St neighborhood is occupied by renters, which is nearly the highest rate of renter occupancy of any neighborhood in America.
