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 32nd St SW / 15th Ave SW neighborhood has more
Norwegian and Belgian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 34.0% of
this neighborhood's residents have Norwegian ancestry and 1.4% have Belgian ancestry.
32nd St SW / 15th Ave SW is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 2.1% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak French at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 95.9% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: People
32nd St SW / 15th Ave SW has the amazing distinction of housing more same
sex couples living together than 98.8% of neighborhoods
in the U.S. If you are seeking such a neighborhood, NeighborhoodScout's
analysis shows that this is one place that you should consider.
In addition, an extraordinary 13.9% of the residents of the
32nd St SW / 15th Ave SW neighborhood are currently enrolled in college. This is
such a large part of life in this neighborhood that the neighborhood changes
a great deal with the change of semesters and is far quieter during
the summer when many students are away.
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 32nd St SW / 15th Ave SW neighborhood have the pleasure
of having one of the shortest commutes to work of any neighborhood in
America. 59.7% 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 95.2% of U.S. neighborhoods. Less time commuting
means more time for other things in life.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, one of the really unique and interesting things about the look and setting of the 32nd St SW / 15th Ave SW neighborhood is that it is almost entirely dominated by large apartment buildings, such as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments. 81.2% 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 97.4% of all neighborhoods in America.
Furthermore, the 32nd St SW / 15th Ave SW 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 86.3% 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.
Also of note, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the 32nd St SW / 15th Ave SW stands out as rather unique in having nearly all of its residential real estate built in one time period, namely between 1970 and 1999, generally considered to be established, but not old housing. What you'll sense when you look around or drive the streets of this neighborhood is that many of the residences look the same because of this similarity of age. In fact, 84.3% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
