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 Roseville Ave / Bloomfield Ave neighborhood has more
South American and Portuguese ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 34.6% of
this neighborhood's residents have South American ancestry and 6.9% have Portuguese ancestry.
Roseville Ave / Bloomfield 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 99.0% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research identifies the Roseville Ave / Bloomfield Ave
neighborhood as having one of the highest concentrations of people employed
in manufacturing or as laborers of any neighborhood in America. In fact,
despite the loss of manufacturing jobs nationally, this neighborhood has
47.0% of its working residents employed in such fields, which is a
higher proportion than 98.9% of American 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 Roseville Ave / Bloomfield Ave neighborhood have a highly unusual car ownership.
28.1% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at
all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
96.4% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
If you like crowded places, then you will probably enjoy the Roseville Ave / Bloomfield Ave neighborhood. According to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive data analysis, this neighborhood is more densely populated than 95.5% of neighborhoods in the U.S., with 21,717 people per square mile living here. 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 Roseville Ave / Bloomfield Ave neighborhood is one of the most walkable neighborhoods in America.
In addition, 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 Roseville Ave / Bloomfield Ave 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, 49.8% of the real estate here are small 2, 3, or 4 unit apartment buildings, which is a higher proportion than found in 98.0% of America's neighborhoods.
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 Roseville Ave / Bloomfield Ave
neighborhood has a greater percentage of residents born in another country
(44.6%) than are found in 96.1% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
More people ride the bus in this neighborhood each day to get to work
