Vacant apartments or homes are a major fact of life in Fenkell St / Stout St. The current real estate vacancy rate here is 46.9%. This is higher than the rate of vacancies in 98.2% of all U.S. neighborhoods. In addition, most vacant housing here is vacant year round. This can sometimes be the case in neighborhoods dominated by new construction that is not yet occupied. But often neighborhoods with vacancy rates this high are places that can be plagued by a protracted vacancy problem. If you live here, you may find that a number of buildings in your neighborhood are actually empty.

Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

The way a neighborhood looks and feels when you walk or drive around it, from its setting, its buildings, and its flavor, can make all the difference. This neighborhood has some really cool things about the way it looks and feels as revealed by NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research. This might include anything from the housing stock to the types of households living here to how people get around.

Notable & Unique: People

The Fenkell St / Stout St neighborhood stands out for having an average per capita income lower than 99.4% of the neighborhoods in the United States. The Fenkell St / Stout St neighborhood also has a greater percentage of children living in poverty (84.0%) than found in 99.5% 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 Fenkell St / Stout St neighborhood about it; they already know. 19.9% of this neighborhood's households are run by single mothers, which is a higher concentration than NeighborhoodScout found in 96.0% 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: Modes of Transportation

Notable & Unique: Diversity

Significantly, 1.9% of its residents five years old and above primarily speak Japanese at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher than 98.6% of the neighborhoods in America.

Notable & Unique: Real Estate

Despite all of the residential real estate here in the Fenkell St / Stout St neighborhood, NeighborhoodScout has discovered that much of it is vacant. In resort or second-home vacation areas, this naturally occurs because homes and apartments are seasonally occupied, and empty for a portion of the year. In non-vacation or resort areas, however, this can be an indicator of property abandonment or a weak real estate market. The vacancy rate here is 46.9%, which is higher than 98.2% of all U.S. neighborhoods.

In addition, the Fenkell St / Stout St neighborhood has earned the amazing distinction of having one of the highest rates of detached, single-family homes of any neighborhood in the U.S. With 98.8% of the residential real estate here made up of free-standing single-family homes, there is a greater proportion of single-family homes here than in 98.1% of all neighborhoods in America.

Notable & Unique: Occupations

There are more people living in the Fenkell St / Stout St neighborhood employed as sales and service workers (54.6%) than almost any neighborhood in the country. From fast-food service workers to major sales accounts, 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

Most American households own a car or other vehicle. Many own two cars or perhaps three. In the United States, it is useful to have an automobile not only for commuting, but also for shopping and getting to other services one needs. But NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed that households in the Fenkell St / Stout St neighborhood have a highly unusual car ownership. 23.3% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in 95.5% of 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 Fenkell St / Stout St neighborhood in Detroit are low income, making it among the lowest income neighborhoods in America. NeighborhoodScout's research shows that this neighborhood has an income lower than 99.4% of U.S. neighborhoods. With 84.0% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 99.5% of U.S. neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

A neighborhood is far different if it is dominated by enlisted military personnel rather than people who earn their living by farming. It is also different if most of the neighbors are clerical support or managers. What is wonderful is the sheer diversity of neighborhoods, allowing you to find the type that fits your lifestyle and aspirations.

In the Fenkell St / Stout St neighborhood, 45.4% of the working population is employed in sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is executive, management, and professional occupations, with 20.6% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in manufacturing and laborer occupations (17.7%), and 16.3% in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations.

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Culture is shared learned behavior. We learn it from our parents, their parents, our houses of worship, and much of our culture – our learned behavior – comes from our ancestors. That is why ancestry and ethnicity can be so interesting and important to understand: places with concentrations of people of one or more ancestries often express those shared learned behaviors and this gives each neighborhood its own culture. Even different neighborhoods in the same city can have drastically different cultures.

In the Fenkell St / Stout St neighborhood in Detroit, MI, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Sub-Saharan African (19.2%). There are also a number of people of African ancestry (12.3%), and residents who report German roots (2.0%), and some of the residents are also of Polish ancestry (1.4%), along with some French ancestry residents (1.4%), among others.

The Neighbors: Languages

The most common language spoken in the Fenkell St / Stout St neighborhood is English, spoken by 97.6% of households.

Getting to Work

How you get to work – car, bus, train or other means – and how much of your day it takes to do so is a large quality of life and financial issue. Especially with gasoline prices rising and expected to continue doing so, the length and means of one's commute can be a financial burden. Some neighborhoods are physically located so that many residents have to drive in their own car, others are set up so many walk to work, or can take a train, bus, or bike. The greatest number of commuters in Fenkell St / Stout St neighborhood spend between 15 and 30 minutes commuting one-way to work (69.7% of working residents), which is shorter than the time spent commuting to work for most Americans.

In addition, quite a number also carpool with coworkers, friends, or neighbors to get to work (26.1%) and 8.5% of residents also ride the bus 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.
