Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

Notable & Unique: Real Estate

Despite all of the residential real estate here in the Hamilton Ave / Labelle 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.

The vacancy rate here is 39.8%, which is higher than 97.2% of all U.S. 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 Hamilton Ave / Labelle St neighborhood have a highly unusual car ownership. 24.1% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in 95.7% of U.S. neighborhoods.
