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: People

The types of households in a neighborhood can tell a lot about the character and lifestyle of those living here. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals that this neighborhood, above nearly every neighborhood in America, has a greater percentage of its residents living alone: 69.9%. This is a higher percent living alone than we found in 99.8% of all U.S. neighborhoods. Often residents who live alone are new arrivals to an area who are single, and often senior citizens who have lost a spouse.

In addition, one of the unique characteristics of the Frelinghuysen Ave / U.S. Route 22 neighborhood revealed by analysis is that the per capita income of residents here is lower than that found in 99.6% of the neighborhoods in America.

Also, the Frelinghuysen Ave / U.S. Route 22 neighborhood is unique for having just 3.0% of adults here having earned a bachelor's degree. This is a lower rate of college graduates than NeighborhoodScout found in 98.4% of America'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 Frelinghuysen Ave / U.S. Route 22 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. The residents of the Frelinghuysen Ave / U.S. Route 22 neighborhood unfortunately have the distinction of having, on average, a longer commute than most any neighborhood in America. 17.9% of commuters here travel more than one hour just one-way to work. That is more than two hours per day. This percentage with two-hour + round-trip commutes is higher than NeighborhoodScout found in 99.5% of all neighborhoods in America.

Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation

More people ride the bus in this neighborhood each day to get to work than 99.4% of U.S. neighborhoods.

Also, in the Frelinghuysen Ave / U.S. Route 22 neighborhood, 18.6% of people ride the train to work each day. This is a very high percentage compared to most places. In fact, NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals that this is a higher level of train ridership than in 95.9% of the neighborhoods in America.

Notable & Unique: Real Estate

Renter-occupied real estate is dominant in the Frelinghuysen Ave / U.S. Route 22 neighborhood. The percentage of rental real estate here, according to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, is 92.4%, which is higher than 97.7% 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.

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 Frelinghuysen Ave / U.S. Route 22 neighborhood has a highly unusual pattern of car ownership. 34.8% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in 97.5% of U.S. neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Diversity

Did you know that the Frelinghuysen Ave / U.S. Route 22 neighborhood has more Haitian and Puerto Rican ancestry people living in it than nearly any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 14.8% of this neighborhood's residents have Haitian ancestry and 16.6% have Puerto Rican ancestry.

Frelinghuysen Ave / U.S. Route 22 is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 7.6% 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 98.8% of the 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 Frelinghuysen Ave / U.S. Route 22 neighborhood in Newark are low income, making it among the lowest income neighborhoods in America. NeighborhoodScout's research shows that this neighborhood has an income lower than 99.6% of U.S. neighborhoods. With 22.3% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 67.4% 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 Frelinghuysen Ave / U.S. Route 22 neighborhood, 33.7% of the working population is employed in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is manufacturing and laborer occupations, with 31.2% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in executive, management, and professional occupations (19.4%), and 15.7% in sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants.

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 Frelinghuysen Ave / U.S. Route 22 neighborhood is English, spoken by 63.9% of households. Other important languages spoken here include Spanish and French.

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 Frelinghuysen Ave / U.S. Route 22 neighborhood in Newark, NJ, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Puerto Rican (16.6%). There are also a number of people of Haitian ancestry (14.8%), and residents who report South American roots (4.6%), and some of the residents are also of Sub-Saharan African ancestry (3.1%), along with some Cuban ancestry residents (2.4%), among others. In addition, 14.5% of the residents of this neighborhood were born in another country.

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 Frelinghuysen Ave / U.S. Route 22 neighborhood spend between 45 minutes and one hour commuting one-way to work (33.7% of working residents), longer and tougher than most commutes in America.

Here most residents (32.9%) ride the bus to get to work. In addition, quite a number also drive alone in a private automobile to get to work (31.0%) and 18.6% of residents also take the train for their daily commute. The bus provides a valuable service in the Frelinghuysen Ave / U.S. Route 22 neighborhood of Newark 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.
