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: Diversity
Did you know that the Lyndale Ave S / W 36th St neighborhood has more
Finnish and Norwegian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 2.7% of
this neighborhood's residents have Finnish ancestry and 13.5% have Norwegian ancestry.
Lyndale Ave S / W 36th St is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 2.2% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Portuguese at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 98.0% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: People
One of the most interesting things about the Lyndale Ave S / W 36th St
neighborhood is that it has a greater concentration of residents who live
alone than most all neighborhoods in America. With 52.7% 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
97.9% of the neighborhoods in America.

further than this unique neighborhood. With 5.2% of residents in
the Lyndale Ave S / W 36th St neighborhood commuting on a bicycle to and
from work daily, this neighborhood has more bicycle commuters than
97.7% of all neighborhoods in the U.S., according to
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
Being a walkable neighborhood can help increase property values for the simple reason that people enjoy it and value it. To put it plainly, despite our love affair with the automobile, American's enjoy taking to the streets, sidewalks, paths, and courtyards of a place to get a coffee, relax, and take in the sights and sounds. And, according to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive and first quantitative walkable score index, the Lyndale Ave S / W 36th St neighborhood is one of the most walkable neighborhoods in America.
In addition, the Lyndale Ave S / W 36th St 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 82.4% 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: Migration / Stability
Some neighborhoods have more internal cohesiveness than others. While other
neighborhoods feel like a collection of strangers who just happen to live
near each other. Sometimes this comes down to not only the personalities
of the people in a place, but how long people have been together in that
neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's research has revealed some interesting
things about the rootedness of people in the Lyndale Ave S / W 36th St
In the Lyndale Ave S / W 36th St neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 95.4% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
