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
One of the unique characteristics of the Pasadena St / Rosa Parks Blvd
neighborhood revealed by analysis is that the per capita income of
residents here is lower than that found in 99.0% of the neighborhoods
The Pasadena St / Rosa Parks Blvd neighborhood also has a greater percentage
of children living in poverty (96.2%) than found in
99.9% 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, one of the most interesting things about the Pasadena St / Rosa Parks Blvd
neighborhood is that it has a greater concentration of residents who live
alone than most all neighborhoods in America. With 48.8% 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
96.4% of the neighborhoods in America.
Also, neighborhoodScout's exclusive research revealed that 94.8%
of the adult residents in the Pasadena St / Rosa Parks Blvd neighborhood do
not have a 4-year college degree, which is a lower rate of college graduated
adults than found in 95.8% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
Our research shows that more people carpool to work here in the
Pasadena St / Rosa Parks Blvd (36.7%) than in 99.8% of the
neighborhoods in America.
Also, a unique way of commuting is simply not to. And in the Pasadena St / Rosa Parks Blvd
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
96.2% 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: Occupations
Each year, fewer and fewer Americans make their living as farmers, foresters,
or fishers. But the Pasadena St / Rosa Parks Blvd neighborhood truly stands
out among U.S. neighborhoods. According to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis,
this neighborhood has a greater proportion of farmers, foresters, or fishers
than 98.1% of all American neighborhoods. This is truly a unique
cultural characteristic of this neighborhood.
Furthermore, there are more people living in the Pasadena St / Rosa Parks Blvd neighborhood
employed as sales and service workers (56.9%) 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: Real Estate
In addition, vacant homes and apartments are a significant characteristic of this neighborhood. In fact, with 46.1% of the residential real estate vacant, the Pasadena St / Rosa Parks Blvd neighborhood claims the distinction of having a higher vacancy rate than 98.2% of the neighborhoods in America. This can either be because much of the property is seasonally occupied, like in many vacation areas, or that much of the real estate is more permanently abandoned.
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 Pasadena St / Rosa Parks Blvd neighborhood could be your paradise. With 25.2% 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 4.4% of U.S. neighborhoods have more row houses than this neighborhood, making it one of the most interesting things about this special neighborhood.
