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: Diversity

Did you know that the 61st St / Granton Ave neighborhood has more Cuban and South American ancestry people living in it than nearly any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 25.1% of this neighborhood's residents have Cuban ancestry and 20.0% have South American ancestry.

61st St / Granton Ave is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 66.6% of its residents five years old and above primarily speak Spanish at home. This is a higher percentage than 96.9% of all U.S. neighborhoods.

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: 54.3%. This is a higher percent living alone than we found in 98.3% 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 61st St / Granton Ave neighborhood revealed by analysis is that the per capita income of residents here is lower than that found in 98.3% of the neighborhoods in America.

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 61st St / Granton Ave neighborhood has a greater percentage of residents born in another country (51.2%) than are found in 98.0% of all U.S. neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation

Our research revealed that more commuters here take the bus to work (21.0% ride the bus) than 97.3% of all American neighborhoods. If you like the idea of leaving your car and home and hopping the bus to work, this might be a good neighborhood for you to consider.

Notable & Unique: Real Estate

Renter-occupied real estate is dominant in the 61st St / Granton Ave neighborhood. The percentage of rental real estate here, according to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, is 90.0%, which is higher than 97.1% 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.

In addition, if you like crowded places, then you will probably enjoy the the 61st St / Granton Ave neighborhood. According to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive data analysis, this neighborhood is more densely populated than 96.8% of neighborhoods in the U.S., with 27,699 people per square mile living here.

Furthermore, the real estate in the 61st St / Granton Ave neighborhood really stands out in the way it looks for a unique reason: this neighborhood has a higher proportion of apartment complexes or high-rise apartments than nearly every neighborhood in the country. Most neighborhoods are a mixture of real estate and housing types, but here it is almost entirely dominated by big apartment buildings and complexes. In fact, 74.0% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 96.4% of American neighborhoods.

Also of note, the 61st St / Granton Ave 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. With 81.6% of the real estate here of this small size, this most assuredly is a notable feature that makes this neighborhood unique, along with just a handful of other neighborhoods in the U.S. that share this characteristic.


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 61st St / Granton Ave neighborhood in North Bergen are low income, making it among the lowest income neighborhoods in America. NeighborhoodScout's research shows that this neighborhood has an income lower than 98.3% of U.S. neighborhoods. With 47.0% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 88.6% 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 61st St / Granton Ave neighborhood, 39.0% of the working population is employed in sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations, with 22.8% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in executive, management, and professional occupations (20.8%), and 17.4% in manufacturing and laborer 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 61st St / Granton Ave neighborhood in North Bergen, NJ, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Cuban (25.1%). There are also a number of people of South American ancestry (20.0%), and residents who report Italian roots (16.2%), and some of the residents are also of Dominican ancestry (9.0%), along with some Puerto Rican ancestry residents (7.6%), among others. In addition, 51.2% of the residents of this neighborhood were born in another country.

The Neighbors: Languages

The most common language spoken in the 61st St / Granton Ave neighborhood is Spanish, spoken by 66.6% of households. Some people also speak English (30.7%).

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 61st St / Granton Ave neighborhood spend under 15 minutes commuting one-way to work (27.5% of working residents), one of the shortest commutes across America.

In addition, quite a number also ride the bus to get to work (21.0%) and 11.8% 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.
