Eastern Michigan U / Hoyt Hall is an urban neighborhood (based on population density) located in Ypsilanti, Michigan.

Most of the residential real estate is renter occupied. Many of the residences in the Eastern Michigan U / Hoyt Hall neighborhood are established but not old, having been built between 1970 and 1999. A number of residences were also built between 1940 and 1969.

This is higher than the rate of vacancies in 97.8% of all U.S. neighborhoods. In addition, most vacant housing here is vacant year round. This can sometimes be the case in neighborhoods dominated by new construction that is not yet occupied. But often neighborhoods with vacancy rates this high are places that can be plagued by a protracted vacancy problem. If you live here, you may find that a number of buildings in your neighborhood are actually empty.

Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

Many things matter about a neighborhood, but the first thing most people notice is the way a neighborhood looks and its particular character.

This particular neighborhood in Ypsilanti, the Eastern Michigan U / Hoyt Hall neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.

Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability

Do you like to be surrounded by people from all over the country or world, with different perspectives and life experiences?

In the Eastern Michigan U / Hoyt Hall neighborhood, a greater proportion of the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is found in 99.9% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood, more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.

Notable & Unique: People

The Eastern Michigan U / Hoyt Hall neighborhood stands out for having an average per capita income lower than 99.6% of the neighborhoods in the United States.

In fact, NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research reveals walking to and from work is the chosen way to commute for 54.6% of residents here. This is a higher proportion of walking commuters than we found in 99.7% of American neighborhoods. Get ready to put on your walking shoes if you move here!

Also, in the Eastern Michigan U / Hoyt Hall neighborhood, many people's commute means walking from the bedroom to the home office. NeighborhoodScout's analysis found that 13.3% of residents worked from home. This may not seem like a large number, but Scout's research shows that this is a higher percentage of people working from home than 97.4% of the neighborhoods in America. Often people who work from home are engaged in the creative or technological economy, such as is found in areas around Boston, and in Silicon Valley. Other times, people may be engaged in other businesses like trading stocks from home, or running a small beauty salon.

Notable & Unique: Real Estate

Renter-occupied real estate is dominant in the Eastern Michigan U / Hoyt Hall neighborhood. The percentage of rental real estate here, according to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, is 100.0%, which is higher than 99.5% of the neighborhoods in America. If you were to buy and live in the property you bought here, you would be almost alone in doing so. Vacant homes and apartments are a significant characteristic of this neighborhood. In fact, with 43.4% of the residential real estate vacant, the Eastern Michigan U / Hoyt Hall neighborhood claims the distinction of having a higher vacancy rate than 97.8% 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.

In addition, the real estate in the Eastern Michigan U / Hoyt Hall neighborhood really stands out in the way it looks for a unique reason: this neighborhood has a higher proportion of apartment complexes or high-rise apartments than nearly every neighborhood in the country. Most neighborhoods are a mixture of real estate and housing types, but here it is almost entirely dominated by big apartment buildings and complexes. In fact, 74.4% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 96.5% of American neighborhoods.

Furthermore, the Eastern Michigan U / Hoyt Hall 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 82.9% 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.

Notable & Unique: Car Ownership

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.

The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income

There are two complementary measures for understanding the income of a neighborhood's residents: the average and the extremes. While a neighborhood may be relatively wealthy overall, it is equally important to understand the rate of people - particularly children - who are living at or below the federal poverty line, which is extremely low income. Some neighborhoods with a lower average income may actually have a lower childhood poverty rate than another with a higher average income, and this helps us understand the conditions and character of a neighborhood.

The neighbors in the Eastern Michigan U / Hoyt Hall neighborhood in Ypsilanti are low income, making it among the lowest income neighborhoods in America. NeighborhoodScout's research shows that this neighborhood has an income lower than 99.6% of U.S. neighborhoods. With 100.0% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 99.9% of U.S. neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

The old saying "you are what you eat" is true. But it is also true that you are what you do for a living. The types of occupations your neighbors have shape their character, and together as a group, their collective occupations shape the culture of a place.

In the Eastern Michigan U / Hoyt Hall neighborhood, 48.1% of the working population is employed in sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations, with 27.4% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in executive, management, and professional occupations (18.0%), and 6.5% in manufacturing and laborer occupations.

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Culture is the shared learned behavior of peoples. Undeniably, different ethnicities and ancestries have different cultural traditions, and as a result, neighborhoods with concentrations of residents of one or another ethnicities or ancestries will express those cultures. It is what makes the North End in Boston so fun to visit for the Italian restaurants, bakeries, culture, and charm, and similarly, why people enjoy visiting Chinatown in San Francisco.

In the Eastern Michigan U / Hoyt Hall neighborhood in Ypsilanti, MI, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as German (19.0%). There are also a number of people of Irish ancestry (9.5%), and residents who report Polish roots (8.8%), and some of the residents are also of Asian ancestry (6.9%), along with some Italian ancestry residents (5.3%), among others.

The Neighbors: Languages

The most common language spoken in the Eastern Michigan U / Hoyt Hall neighborhood is English, spoken by 91.9% of households. Some people also speak Chinese (2.2%).

Getting to Work

Even if your neighborhood is walkable, you may still have to drive to your place of work. Some neighborhoods are located where many can get to work in just a few minutes, while others are located such that most residents have a long and arduous commute. The greatest number of commuters in Eastern Michigan U / Hoyt Hall neighborhood spend under 15 minutes commuting one-way to work (50.7% of working residents), one of the shortest commutes across America.

Here most residents (54.6%) hop out the door and walk to work to get to work. In addition, quite a number also drive alone in a private automobile to get to work (28.0%) and 9.0% of residents also carpool with coworkers, friends, or neighbors for their daily commute. This is a special neighborhood for the number of people who walk to work. Combining exercise, low cost, and reduced pollution, plus the chance to see your neighbors, walking to work is fairly uncommon in America but likely to increase as people try to reduce their dependence on automobiles, and this neighborhood offers that opportunity today.
