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: Occupations
From major sales accounts to fast-food workers, sales and service employees
are often the backbone of the local economy. In the Mack Ave / Saint Jean St
neighborhood, they truly stand out. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis
identifies this neighborhood as having a higher percentage of sales and
service workers than 98.4% of all American neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: People
One of the unique characteristics of the Mack Ave / Saint Jean St
neighborhood revealed by analysis is that the per capita income of
residents here is lower than that found in 98.1% of the neighborhoods
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 Mack Ave / Saint Jean St neighborhood has more single mother
households than 95.5% 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: Modes of Transportation
More people ride the bus in this neighborhood each day to get to work
than 97.5% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Also, a unique way of commuting is simply not to. And in the Mack Ave / Saint Jean St
neighborhood, analysis shows that 12.0% of the residents work
from home, avoiding a commute altogether. This may not seem like a large number,
but it is a higher proportion of people working from home than is found in
96.3% of the neighborhoods in the United States.
One thing NeighborhoodScout's research reveals is that the wealthier and/or
more isolated the neighborhood, the greater the proportion of residents who
choose to work from home.
Finally, our research shows that more people carpool to work here in the
Mack Ave / Saint Jean St (21.0%) than in 95.8% of the
neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Mack Ave / Saint Jean 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 45.1%, which is higher than 98.0% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Furthermore, many people dream of living along a street lined with row houses or other attached homes. Such places do often have an abundance of charm. If you are one of these people, the Mack Ave / Saint Jean St neighborhood could be your paradise. With 23.4% of the homes and real estate here classified as rowhouses or other attached homes, this neighborhood brims with opportunity to find the right place for you. Only 5.0% of U.S. neighborhoods have more row houses than this neighborhood, making it one of the most interesting things about this special neighborhood.
