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 Reno City Center neighborhood stands out for having an
average per capita income lower than 99.3% of the neighborhoods
in the United States.
Also of note, 65.5% of the children in this area
live in poverty; an extraordinarily high percentage compared to other
neighborhoods in the nation. In a nation where approximately one in
four children grows up in poverty, this neighborhood stands out for
the depth of the problem manifested here.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
More people in Reno City Center choose to walk to work each day
(25.8%) than almost any neighborhood in America. If you are
attracted to the idea of being able to walk to work, this neighborhood
could be a good choice.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
Some neighborhoods have more internal cohesiveness than others. While other
neighborhoods feel like a collection of strangers who just happen to live
near each other. Sometimes this comes down to not only the personalities
of the people in a place, but how long people have been together in that
neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's research has revealed some interesting
things about the rootedness of people in the Reno City Center
In the Reno City Center neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 98.3% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
From major sales accounts to fast-food workers, sales and service employees
are often the backbone of the local economy. In the Reno City Center
neighborhood, they truly stand out. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis
identifies this neighborhood as having a higher percentage of sales and
service workers than 97.7% of all American neighborhoods.
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 Reno City Center neighborhood has
a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.
28.9% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at
all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
96.6% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Reno City Center neighborhood has more
Iranian and Croatian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 0.8% of
this neighborhood's residents have Iranian ancestry and 0.8% have Croatian ancestry.
Reno City Center is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 0.8% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Persian at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 95.9% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, the Reno City Center 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 94.1% 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.
Furthermore, 94.2% of the real estate in the Reno City Center neighborhood is occupied by renters, which is nearly the highest rate of renter occupancy of any neighborhood in America.
Also of note, one of the really unique and interesting things about the look and setting of the Reno City Center neighborhood is that it is almost entirely dominated by large apartment buildings, such as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments. 69.7% of the residential real estate here is classified as such. This puts this neighborhood on the map as having a higher proportion of large apartment buildings than 95.7% of all neighborhoods in America.
