Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

Many things matter about a neighborhood, but the first thing most people notice is the way a neighborhood looks and its particular character. For example, one might notice whether the buildings all date from a certain time period or whether shop signs are in multiple languages. This particular neighborhood in New Brunswick, the Feaster Park neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.

Notable & Unique: Diversity

Did you know that the Feaster Park neighborhood has more Dominican and Mexican ancestry people living in it than nearly any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 13.6% of this neighborhood's residents have Dominican ancestry and 52.7% have Mexican ancestry.

Feaster Park is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 77.9% of its residents five years old and above primarily speak Spanish at home. This is a higher percentage than 98.3% of all U.S. neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Car Ownership

We Americans love our cars. Not only are they a necessity for most Americans due to the shape of our neighborhoods and the distances between where we live, work, shop, and go to school, but we also fancy them. As a result, most households in America have one, two, or three cars. But NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis shows that the Feaster Park neighborhood has a highly unusual pattern of car ownership. 58.9% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in 99.1% of U.S. neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Occupations

More people work in manufacturing and as laborers here in the Feaster Park neighborhood than in 98.6% 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: Migration / Stability

The freedom of moving to new places versus the comfort of home. How much and how often people move not only can create diverse and worldly neighborhoods, but simultaneously it can produce a loss of intimacy with one's surroundings and a lack of connectedness to one's neighbors. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research has identified this neighborhood as unique with regard to the transience of its populace. What is interesting to note, is that the Feaster Park neighborhood has a greater percentage of residents born in another country (53.0%) than are found in 98.4% of all U.S. neighborhoods.

These are some of the hallmarks of neighborhoods with lots of small 2, 3, and 4 unit apartment buildings. The Feaster Park 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, 43.1% of the real estate here are small 2, 3, or 4 unit apartment buildings, which is a higher proportion than found in 96.9% of America's neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: People

NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals that the Feaster Park neighborhood has more single mother households than 97.3% of the neighborhoods in the U.S. Often high concentrations of single mother homes can be a strong indicator of family and social issues such as poverty, high rates of school dropouts, crime, and other societal problems.

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 Feaster Park neighborhood in New Brunswick are lower-middle income, making it a below average income neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's research shows that this neighborhood has an income lower than 78.6% of U.S. neighborhoods. With 45.4% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 87.5% of U.S. neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

The old saying "you are what you eat" is true. But it is also true that you are what you do for a living. The types of occupations your neighbors have shape their character, and together as a group, their collective occupations shape the culture of a place.

In the Feaster Park neighborhood, 45.6% of the working population is employed in manufacturing and laborer occupations. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants, with 34.7% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in executive, management, and professional occupations (10.0%), and 9.7% in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations.

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Culture is shared learned behavior. We learn it from our parents, their parents, our houses of worship, and much of our culture – our learned behavior – comes from our ancestors. That is why ancestry and ethnicity can be so interesting and important to understand: places with concentrations of people of one or more ancestries often express those shared learned behaviors and this gives each neighborhood its own culture. Even different neighborhoods in the same city can have drastically different cultures.

In the Feaster Park neighborhood in New Brunswick, NJ, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Mexican (52.7%). There are also a number of people of Dominican ancestry (13.6%), and residents who report Puerto Rican roots (5.1%), and some of the residents are also of German ancestry (2.6%), along with some Irish ancestry residents (1.7%), among others. In addition, 53.0% of the residents of this neighborhood were born in another country.

The Neighbors: Languages

The most common language spoken in the Feaster Park neighborhood is Spanish, spoken by 77.9% of households. Some people also speak English (21.0%).

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 Feaster Park neighborhood spend under 15 minutes commuting one-way to work (35.0% of working residents), one of the shortest commutes across America.

Here most residents (22.7%) drive alone in a private automobile to get to work. In addition, quite a number also carpool with coworkers, friends, or neighbors to get to work (22.1%) and 14.4% of residents also hop out the door and walk to work for their daily commute. In a neighborhood like this, as in most of the nation, many residents find owning a car useful for getting to work.
