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 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, whether by choice, divorce, or unplanned pregnancy, single moms may have
the toughest job in the book. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals
that the Fenkell St / Stout St neighborhood has more single mother
households than 96.0% 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.
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: Modes of Transportation
In the Fenkell St / Stout St neighborhood, carpooling is still a popular
way to get to and from work. NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals that
26.1% of commuters carpool here, which is more than in
98.6% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Also, would you like to be able to ride your bike to work? If you are attracted
to the idea of getting a little exercise of the two-wheeled type while
reducing your carbon footprint, bicycling to work might be the answer.
But which neighborhood you live in can make this either impossible, or
alternatively, a great and realistic option. NeighborhoodScout's analysis
revealed that the Fenkell St / Stout St neighborhood is a fantastic
option for bicycle commuters, as 3.7% of commuters here do ride
their bikes to and from work on a daily basis. This is a higher amount
than we found in 95.8% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
From major sales accounts to fast-food workers, sales and service employees
are often the backbone of the local economy. In the Fenkell St / Stout St
neighborhood, they truly stand out. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis
identifies this neighborhood as having a higher percentage of sales and
service workers than 97.2% of all American neighborhoods.
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.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, 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.
Furthermore, this 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.
