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: Modes of Transportation
In the Minneapolis City Center neighborhood, walking to work is a real
option for many. In fact, NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research reveals
walking to and from work is the chosen way to commute for 31.7%
of residents here. This is a higher proportion of walking commuters than
we found in 98.9% of American neighborhoods. Get ready
to put on your walking shoes if you move here!
Notable & Unique: People
Of particular note, 13.2% of the people in the City Center
neighborhood currently reside in a correction facility, held due to
punishment for a crime.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
The freedom of moving to new places versus the comfort of home. How much
and how often people move not only can create diverse and worldly neighborhoods,
but simultaneously it can produce a loss of intimacy with one's surroundings
and a lack of connectedness to one's neighbors. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive
research has identified this neighborhood as unique with regard to the
transience of its populace.
In the Minneapolis City Center neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 98.5% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
Executives, managers and professionals make up 70.9% of the workforce
in the Minneapolis City Center neighborhood which, according to
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis, is a higher proportion of such
high-level people than is found in 98.3% of the neighborhoods
in America. For this reason, this neighborhood really stands out as unique.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Minneapolis City Center neighborhood has more
Swedish and Norwegian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 5.9% of
this neighborhood's residents have Swedish ancestry and 7.1% have Norwegian ancestry.
Minneapolis City Center is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 4.3% 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 99.2% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, one of the really unique and interesting things about the look and setting of the Minneapolis City Center neighborhood is that it is almost entirely dominated by large apartment buildings, such as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments. 96.2% of the residential real estate here is classified as such. This puts this neighborhood on the map as having a higher proportion of large apartment buildings than 99.4% of all neighborhoods in America.
Furthermore, the Minneapolis City Center 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 91.1% 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.
