The way a neighborhood looks and feels when you walk or drive around it, from
its setting, its buildings, and its flavor, can make all the difference. This
neighborhood has some really cool things about the way it looks and feels as
revealed by NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research. This might include anything
from the housing stock to the types of households living here to how people
Notable & Unique: People
Of note is NeighborhoodScout's research finding that the
7th St E / Jackson St neighborhood has some of the lowest rates of children
living in poverty of any neighborhood in the United States. In a nation
where approximately 1 in 4 children are living in poverty, the
7th St E / Jackson St community truly stands out from the rest in this regard.
In addition, the types of households in a neighborhood can tell a lot about the character
and lifestyle of those living here. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis
reveals that this neighborhood, above nearly every neighborhood in America,
has a greater percentage of its residents living alone: 69.7%. This
is a higher percent living alone than we found in 99.8% of
all U.S. neighborhoods. Often residents who live alone are new arrivals
to an area who are single, and often senior citizens who have lost a spouse.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the 7th St E / Jackson St neighborhood has more
Norwegian and Swedish ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 14.7% of
this neighborhood's residents have Norwegian ancestry and 5.8% have Swedish ancestry.
7th St E / Jackson St is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.5% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Urdu, which is the national language of Pakistan, at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 97.4% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
In the 7th St E / Jackson St 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 25.8%
of residents here. This is a higher proportion of walking commuters than
we found in 98.4% of American neighborhoods. Get ready
to put on your walking shoes if you move here!
Also, a unique way of commuting is simply not to. And in the 7th St E / Jackson St
neighborhood, analysis shows that 13.8% 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
97.8% 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: Real Estate
In addition, the real estate in the 7th St E / Jackson St 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, 96.9% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 99.6% of American neighborhoods.
Furthermore, the 7th St E / Jackson 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 97.4% 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.
