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
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
A unique way of commuting is simply not to. And in the Mount Elliott St / Vernor Hwy
neighborhood, analysis shows that 16.3% 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
98.7% 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.
Notable & Unique: People
One of the unique characteristics of the Mount Elliott St / Vernor Hwy
neighborhood revealed by analysis is that the per capita income of
residents here is lower than that found in 97.1% of the neighborhoods
Also of note, 64.6% of the children in this area
live in poverty; an extraordinarily high percentage compared to other
neighborhoods in the nation. In a nation where approximately one in
four children grows up in poverty, this neighborhood stands out for
the depth of the problem manifested here.
In addition, one of the most interesting things about the Mount Elliott St / Vernor Hwy
neighborhood is that it has a greater concentration of residents who live
alone than most all neighborhoods in America. With 47.7% of the
households here made up of people living alone, NeighborhoodScout's research
reveals that this is a larger proportion of people living alone than in
95.9% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Significantly, 1.7% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Hindi, which is the official language of India at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 96.6% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, 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 Mount Elliott St / Vernor Hwy neighborhood could be your paradise. With 28.4% 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 3.6% of U.S. neighborhoods have more row houses than this neighborhood, making it one of the most interesting things about this special neighborhood.
Furthermore, the Mount Elliott St / Vernor Hwy neighborhood is very unique in that it has one of the highest proportions of one, two, or no bedroom real estate of any neighborhood in America. Most neighborhoods have a mixture of home or apartment sizes from small to large, but here the concentration of studios and other small living spaces is at near-record heights. With 82.5% of the real estate here of this small size, this most assuredly is a notable feature that makes this neighborhood unique, along with just a handful of other neighborhoods in the U.S. that share this characteristic.
Also of note, 84.2% of the real estate in the Mount Elliott St / Vernor Hwy neighborhood is occupied by renters, which is nearly the highest rate of renter occupancy of any neighborhood in America.
Finally, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the Mount Elliott St / Vernor Hwy stands out as rather unique in having nearly all of its residential real estate built in one time period, namely between 1970 and 1999, generally considered to be established, but not old housing. What you'll sense when you look around or drive the streets of this neighborhood is that many of the residences look the same because of this similarity of age. In fact, 82.1% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
