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 1st Ave N / 6th St N neighborhood has more
Native American and British ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 10.1% of
this neighborhood's residents have Native American ancestry and 2.1% have British ancestry.
1st Ave N / 6th St N is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 0.3% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Native American languages at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 95.2% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: People
Of note, 72.5% of the children in this area
live in poverty; an extraordinarily high percentage compared to other
neighborhoods in the nation. In a nation where approximately one in
four children grows up in poverty, this neighborhood stands out for
the depth of the problem manifested here.
In addition, one of the most interesting things about the 1st Ave N / 6th St N
neighborhood is that it has a greater concentration of residents who live
alone than most all neighborhoods in America. With 52.5% 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
97.8% of the neighborhoods in America.
Also, the 1st Ave N / 6th St N neighborhood stands out within Montana
for its college student friendly environment. NeighborhoodScout's analysis
reveals that this neighborhood is home to a number of college students,
is relatively walkable, and above average in safety. In combination, this
makes it stand out for a good place for college students to consider.
Because a number of college students live here, this neighborhood may
be close to a college campus and offer certain amenities nearby geared
towards the student body. While it's not an environment for everyone,
ambitious scholars can enjoy seasonal excitement between semesters and
school breaks, and parents can rest easy knowing that the area has an
above average safety rating. For each of these reasons, the
neighborhood is rated among the top 9%
of college-friendly places to live in MT.
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 1st Ave N / 6th St N
In the 1st Ave N / 6th St N neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 98.3% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation

option for many. In fact, NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research reveals
walking to and from work is the chosen way to commute for 18.9%
of residents here. This is a higher proportion of walking commuters than
we found in 97.4% of American neighborhoods. Get ready
to put on your walking shoes if you move here!
Notable & Unique: Occupations
With 1.6% of employed workers living in the
1st Ave N / 6th St N neighborhood active in the military, this neighborhood has
the distinction of having a higher proportion of people in the military
than 96.4% of American neighborhoods. This is a major
shaper of the neighborhood's culture and character.
Notable & Unique: Length of Commute
Regardless of the means by which residents commute, this neighborhood has
a length of commute that is notable.
Residents of the 1st Ave N / 6th St N neighborhood have the pleasure
of having one of the shortest commutes to work of any neighborhood in
America. 62.5% of the residents have a commute time from
home to work (one way) of less than fifteen minutes. This is a higher
proportion of residents enjoying a short trip to work than NeighborhoodScout
found in 96.2% of U.S. neighborhoods. Less time commuting
means more time for other things in life.
