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
Our research shows that more people carpool to work here in the
Pearl St N / American Ave (30.5%) than in 99.4% of the
neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
It used to be that most Americans lived on the farm, or otherwise made their
living from the land, the forests, or the sea. With global trade and an
economy increasingly based on providing services to one another, fewer
people farm, fish or harvest timber now than at any time in American history.
But according to NeighborhoodScout's leading analysis, the
Pearl St N / American Ave neighborhood stands apart from most American neighborhood due
to the proportion of its residents still working in these fields. With 16.3%
of the workforce so employed, this neighborhood has a greater concentration
of such workers than 99.4% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Furthermore, more people work in manufacturing and as laborers here in the Pearl St N / American Ave
neighborhood than in 95.8% of the neighborhoods in America. Despite
the loss of manufacturing jobs across the nation, this neighborhood remains
a place where, compared to other parts of the country, you will find many
laborers and manufacturers.
Notable & Unique: People
Single parenting is hard. But you don't have to tell the
Pearl St N / American Ave neighborhood about it; they already know. 25.8%
of this neighborhood's households are run by single mothers, which is a
higher concentration than NeighborhoodScout found in 98.8%
of American neighborhoods. Further NeighborhoodScout research showed strong
statistical correlations among high rates of children living in single
parent households, and neighborhood crime, particularly violent crime,
neighborhood poverty, and, importantly, the percentage of low weight births
and rates of infant mortality.
In addition, neighborhoodScout's exclusive research revealed that 97.6%
of the adult residents in the Pearl St N / American Ave neighborhood do
not have a 4-year college degree, which is a lower rate of college graduated
adults than found in 98.4% of the neighborhoods in America.

Mexican and Puerto Rican ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 62.6% of
this neighborhood's residents have Mexican ancestry and 7.8% have Puerto Rican ancestry.
Pearl St N / American Ave is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 73.7% of its residents five years old and above primarily

Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
Do you like to be surrounded by people from all over the country or world,
with different perspectives and life experiences? Or do you instead prefer
to be in a neighborhood where most residents have lived there for a long
time, creating a sense of cohesiveness? NeighborhoodScout's analysis
reveals that this neighborhood stands out among American neighborhoods
for the uniqueness of the mobility of its residents.
What is interesting to note, is that the Pearl St N / American Ave

(44.1%) than are found in 95.9% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
