Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

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

More people ride the bus in this neighborhood each day to get to work than 100.0% of U.S. neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Diversity

Fairview Borough Center is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 3.9% of its residents five years old and above primarily speak Italian at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher than 99.4% of the neighborhoods in America.

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 Fairview Borough Center neighborhood. What is interesting to note, is that the Fairview Borough Center neighborhood has a greater percentage of residents born in another country (56.2%) than are found in 98.8% of all U.S. neighborhoods.

Three-deckers, duplexes, old Victorian homes cut up into apartments. Independent stores on the corner selling pizza. These are some of the hallmarks of neighborhoods with lots of small 2, 3, and 4 unit apartment buildings. The Fairview Borough Center neighborhood really stands out in this regard, however, as it is dominated by such small apartment buildings more than nearly any other neighborhood in America. This is a stunning visual and lifestyle example of this type of neighborhood. In fact, 52.7% of the real estate here are small 2, 3, or 4 unit apartment buildings, which is a higher proportion than found in 98.3% of America's neighborhoods.

In fact, with 32,062 persons per square mile in the neighborhood, it is more packed with people than 97.4% of the nation's neighborhoods. 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 Fairview Borough Center neighborhood is one of the most walkable neighborhoods in America.

This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in 96.8% of U.S. neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Length of Commute

Whether walking, biking, riding, or driving, the length of one's commute is an important factor for one's quality of life. The Fairview Borough Center neighborhood stands out for its commute length, according to NeighborhoodScout's analysis. Long commutes can be brutal. They take time, money, and energy, leaving less of you for yourself and your family.

That is more than two hours per day. This percentage with two-hour + round-trip commutes is higher than NeighborhoodScout found in 95.5% of all neighborhoods in America.


The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income

There are two complementary measures for understanding the income of a neighborhood's residents: the average and the extremes. While a neighborhood may be relatively wealthy overall, it is equally important to understand the rate of people - particularly children - who are living at or below the federal poverty line, which is extremely low income. Some neighborhoods with a lower average income may actually have a lower childhood poverty rate than another with a higher average income, and this helps us understand the conditions and character of a neighborhood.

The neighbors in the Borough Center neighborhood in Fairview are lower-middle income, making it a below average income neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's research shows that this neighborhood has an income lower than 72.9% of U.S. neighborhoods. With 29.0% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 70.9% of U.S. neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

A neighborhood is far different if it is dominated by enlisted military personnel rather than people who earn their living by farming. It is also different if most of the neighbors are clerical support or managers. What is wonderful is the sheer diversity of neighborhoods, allowing you to find the type that fits your lifestyle and aspirations.

In the Fairview Borough Center neighborhood, 44.7% of the working population is employed in sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is manufacturing and laborer occupations, with 32.1% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in executive, management, and professional occupations (12.9%), and 10.3% in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations.

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Culture is the shared learned behavior of peoples. Undeniably, different ethnicities and ancestries have different cultural traditions, and as a result, neighborhoods with concentrations of residents of one or another ethnicities or ancestries will express those cultures. It is what makes the North End in Boston so fun to visit for the Italian restaurants, bakeries, culture, and charm, and similarly, why people enjoy visiting Chinatown in San Francisco.

In the Borough Center neighborhood in Fairview, NJ, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as South American (14.6%). There are also a number of people of Italian ancestry (12.6%), and residents who report Dominican roots (7.8%), and some of the residents are also of Cuban ancestry (6.6%), along with some Croatian ancestry residents (4.1%), among others. In addition, 56.2% of the residents of this neighborhood were born in another country.

The Neighbors: Languages

The languages spoken by people in this neighborhood are diverse. These are tabulated as the languages people preferentially speak when they are at home with their families. The most common language spoken in the Fairview Borough Center neighborhood is Spanish, spoken by 57.9% of households. Other important languages spoken here include English and Italian.

Getting to Work

How you get to work – car, bus, train or other means – and how much of your day it takes to do so is a large quality of life and financial issue. Especially with gasoline prices rising and expected to continue doing so, the length and means of one's commute can be a financial burden. Some neighborhoods are physically located so that many residents have to drive in their own car, others are set up so many walk to work, or can take a train, bus, or bike. The greatest number of commuters in Fairview Borough Center neighborhood spend between 45 minutes and one hour commuting one-way to work (35.0% of working residents), longer and tougher than most commutes in America.

Here most residents (52.7%) ride the bus to get to work. In addition, quite a number also drive alone in a private automobile to get to work (29.1%) and 11.1% of residents also carpool with coworkers, friends, or neighbors for their daily commute. The bus provides a valuable service in the Borough Center neighborhood of Fairview by getting a lot of residents to and from work daily, reducing the costs of commuting and reducing some congestion on the roads as well.
