revealed by NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research. This might include anything
from the housing stock to the types of households living here to how people

reveals that this is a larger proportion of people living alone than in
97.4% of the neighborhoods in America.

this neighborhood's residents have African ancestry and 0.9% have Croatian ancestry.

the Joy Rd / Livernois Ave neighborhood have a highly unusual car ownership.
23.7% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at
all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
95.6% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Joy Rd / Livernois Ave 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 36.6%, which is higher than 96.5% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
