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 N 6th St / Franklin Ave neighborhood has more
Puerto Rican and Dominican ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 26.8% of
this neighborhood's residents have Puerto Rican ancestry and 11.2% have Dominican ancestry.
N 6th St / Franklin Ave is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 3.6% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Portuguese at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 98.9% of the neighborhoods in America.

From major sales accounts to fast-food workers, sales and service employees
are often the backbone of the local economy. In the N 6th St / Franklin Ave
neighborhood, they truly stand out. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis

service workers than 98.6% of all American neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: People

average per capita income lower than 97.7% of the neighborhoods

Notable & Unique: Real Estate
If you like crowded places, then you will probably enjoy the N 6th St / Franklin Ave neighborhood. According to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive data analysis, this neighborhood is more densely populated than 96.6% of neighborhoods in the U.S., with 26,418 people per square mile living here.
In addition, renter-occupied real estate is dominant in the N 6th St / Franklin Ave neighborhood. The percentage of rental real estate here, according to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, is 86.0%, which is higher than 96.0% of the neighborhoods in America. If you were to buy and live in the property you bought here, you would be almost alone in doing so.
Furthermore, corner bodegas, stores on the first floor and apartments above, former grand Victorian residences converted into apartments, three-deckers built shoulder-to-shoulder, duplexes. Such building types define the real estate of neighborhoods dominated by small 2, 3, and 4 unit apartment buildings. Many are in older core neighborhoods of Eastern and Midwestern cities, or historic town centers in their hinterlands. If you wax romantic about the look and feel of such neighborhoods, with fresh pizza, falafel and an independent florist at the corner, then you might find the N 6th St / Franklin Ave neighborhood worth a close look. This neighborhood is an absolutely outstanding example of the dominance of small 2, 3, and 4 unit apartment buildings compared to neighborhoods across the nation, as they make up a substantial portion of this neighborhood's real estate stock. In fact, no less than 35.9% of the real estate here is made up of such dwellings, which is higher than 95.5% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Car Ownership
Most American households own a car or other vehicle. Many own two cars
or perhaps three. In the United States, it is useful to have an automobile
not only for commuting, but also for shopping and getting to other services
one needs. But NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed that households in
the N 6th St / Franklin Ave neighborhood have a highly unusual car ownership.
22.4% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at
all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
95.2% of U.S. neighborhoods.
