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
NeighborhoodScout's analysis shows that the Mccarter Hwy / Clay St
neighborhood has a greater concentration of residents currently enrolled
in college than 98.1% of the neighborhoods in the U.S. With
26.9% of the population here attending college, this is very
much a college-focused neighborhood.
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 Mccarter Hwy / Clay St neighborhood has
a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.

all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
97.4% of U.S. neighborhoods.

Mccarter Hwy / Clay St is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 3.4% of its residents five years old and above primarily

Furthermore, the Mccarter Hwy / Clay St neighborhood is very unique in that it has one of the highest proportions of one, two, or no bedroom real estate of any neighborhood in America. Most neighborhoods have a mixture of home or apartment sizes from small to large, but here the concentration of studios and other small living spaces is at near-record heights.
