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
One of the unique characteristics of the Court St / State St
neighborhood revealed by analysis is that the per capita income of
residents here is lower than that found in 99.3% of the neighborhoods
In a nation where 1 out of every 4 children lives in poverty, the
Court St / State St neighborhood also stands out as being ranked among
the lowest 0.1% of neighborhoods affected by this global
In addition, one of the most interesting things about the Court St / State St
neighborhood is that it has a greater concentration of residents who live
alone than most all neighborhoods in America. With 76.1% of the
households here made up of people living alone, NeighborhoodScout's research
reveals that this is a larger proportion of people living alone than in
99.9% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Court St / State St neighborhood has more
Czechoslovakian and Lithuanian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 1.4% of
this neighborhood's residents have Czechoslovakian ancestry and 1.4% have Lithuanian ancestry.
Court St / State St is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.5% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Italian at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 96.4% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
More people in Court St / State St choose to walk to work each day
(34.1%) 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.
Also, if your dream is to be able to ride your bike to work each day, look no
further than this unique neighborhood. With 3.9% of residents in
the Court St / State St neighborhood commuting on a bicycle to and
from work daily, this neighborhood has more bicycle commuters than
96.2% of all neighborhoods in the U.S., according to
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis.
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 Court St / State St neighborhood has
a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.
38.7% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at
all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
97.8% of U.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 Court St / State St
neighborhood stands out for its commute length, according to NeighborhoodScout's
Residents of the Court St / State St neighborhood have the pleasure
of having one of the shortest commutes to work of any neighborhood in
America. 59.3% of the residents have a commute time from
home to work (one way) of less than fifteen minutes. This is a higher
proportion of residents enjoying a short trip to work than NeighborhoodScout
found in 95.0% of U.S. neighborhoods. Less time commuting
means more time for other things in life.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, renter-occupied real estate is dominant in the Court St / State St neighborhood. The percentage of rental real estate here, according to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, is 97.3%, which is higher than 98.7% 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. Despite all of the residential real estate here in the Court St / State St neighborhood, NeighborhoodScout has discovered that much of it is vacant. In resort or second-home vacation areas, this naturally occurs because homes and apartments are seasonally occupied, and empty for a portion of the year. In non-vacation or resort areas, however, this can be an indicator of property abandonment or a weak real estate market. The vacancy rate here is 34.3%, which is higher than 95.8% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Furthermore, the Court St / State 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. With 86.4% 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.
Also of note, one of the really unique and interesting things about the look and setting of the Court St / State St neighborhood is that it is almost entirely dominated by large apartment buildings, such as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments. 76.6% 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 96.8% of all neighborhoods in America.
