About Bronx, NY (E 169th St / Grand Concourse)


Real Estate Prices and Overview

E 169th St / Grand Concourse real estate is primarily composed of apartments and renters, so no median house value data are available. The average rental price in E 169th St / Grand Concourse is currently $1,237, based on NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis. Rents here are currently lower in price than 61.5% of New York neighborhoods.

E 169th St / Grand Concourse is a densely urban neighborhood (based on population density) located in Bronx, New York.

E 169th St / Grand Concourse real estate is primarily made up of small (studio to two bedroom) to medium sized (three or four bedroom) apartment complexes/high-rise apartments and small apartment buildings. Most of the residential real estate is renter occupied. Many of the residences in the E 169th St / Grand Concourse neighborhood are older, well-established, built between 1940 and 1969. A number of residences were also built before 1940.

E 169th St / Grand Concourse has a 11.6% vacancy rate, which is well above average compared to other U.S. neighborhoods (higher than 61.9% of American neighborhoods). Most vacant housing here is vacant year round. This could either signal that there is a weak demand for real estate in the neighborhood or that large amount of new housing has been built and not yet occupied. Either way, if you live here, you may find many of the homes or apartments are empty.

Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

Many things matter about a neighborhood, but the first thing most people notice is the way a neighborhood looks and its particular character. For example, one might notice whether the buildings all date from a certain time period or whether shop signs are in multiple languages. This particular neighborhood in Bronx, the E 169th St / Grand Concourse neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.

Notable & Unique: Real Estate

What you'll find when you visit or move to this neighborhood is one of the most crowded neighborhoods in all of America. With an incredible 178,773 people per square mile, it is more densely populated than 100.0% of America's neighborhoods. 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 E 169th St / Grand Concourse neighborhood is one of the most walkable neighborhoods in America.

In addition, the real estate in the E 169th St / Grand Concourse 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, 96.7% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 99.5% of American neighborhoods.

Furthermore, 98.3% of the real estate in the E 169th St / Grand Concourse neighborhood is occupied by renters, which is nearly the highest rate of renter occupancy of any neighborhood in America.

Also of note, the E 169th St / Grand Concourse 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 90.2% 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.

Notable & Unique: Diversity

Did you know that the E 169th St / Grand Concourse neighborhood has more Dominican and African ancestry people living in it than nearly any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 45.6% of this neighborhood's residents have Dominican ancestry and 7.2% have African ancestry.

E 169th St / Grand Concourse is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 74.4% of its residents five years old and above primarily speak Spanish at home. This is a higher percentage than 97.9% of all U.S. 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 E 169th St / Grand Concourse neighborhood has a highly unusual pattern of car ownership. 83.8% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in 99.9% of U.S. neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: People

Single parenting is hard. But you don't have to tell the E 169th St / Grand Concourse neighborhood about it; they already know. 35.3% of this neighborhood's households are run by single mothers, which is a higher concentration than NeighborhoodScout found in 99.8% of American neighborhoods. Further NeighborhoodScout research showed strong statistical correlations among high rates of children living in single parent households, and neighborhood crime, particularly violent crime, neighborhood poverty, and, importantly, the percentage of low weight births and rates of infant mortality.

In addition, the E 169th St / Grand Concourse neighborhood stands out for having an average per capita income lower than 98.3% of the neighborhoods in the United States. The E 169th St / Grand Concourse neighborhood also has a greater percentage of children living in poverty (72.9%) than found in 98.5% of all U.S. neighborhoods. Children living in poverty is one of the challenges facing America, and the world, and in this neighborhood in particular, the problem can be considered acute.

Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation

If you like to ride the train to work, this neighborhood may be for you. NeighborhoodScout's research revealed that 61.8% of the E 169th St / Grand Concourse neighborhood's commuters ride the train to and from work each day, which is more than we found in 99.4% of America's neighborhoods.

Also, more people ride the bus in this neighborhood each day to get to work than 95.3% of U.S. neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Occupations

There are more people living in the E 169th St / Grand Concourse neighborhood employed as sales and service workers (56.0%) than almost any neighborhood in the country. From fast-food service workers to major sales accounts, sales and service workers make up the largest proportion of our national employment picture. But despite that size and importance nationally, this neighborhood still stands out as unique due to the dominance of people living here who work in such occupations.

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 E 169th St / Grand Concourse neighborhood. What is interesting to note, is that the E 169th St / Grand Concourse neighborhood has a greater percentage of residents born in another country (44.8%) than are found in 96.2% of all U.S. neighborhoods.


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 E 169th St / Grand Concourse neighborhood in Bronx 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 72.9% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 98.5% 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 E 169th St / Grand Concourse neighborhood, 44.0% 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 manufacturing and laborer occupations, with 27.3% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations (25.1%), and 3.6% in executive, management, and professional 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 E 169th St / Grand Concourse neighborhood in Bronx, NY, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Dominican (45.6%). There are also a number of people of Mexican ancestry (17.0%), and residents who report Puerto Rican roots (11.5%), and some of the residents are also of Sub-Saharan African ancestry (7.6%), along with some African ancestry residents (7.2%), among others. In addition, 44.8% of the residents of this neighborhood were born in another country.

The Neighbors: Languages

The languages spoken by people in this neighborhood are diverse. These are tabulated as the languages people preferentially speak when they are at home with their families. The most common language spoken in the E 169th St / Grand Concourse neighborhood is Spanish, spoken by 74.4% of households. Other important languages spoken here include English and African languages.

Getting to Work

Even if your neighborhood is walkable, you may still have to drive to your place of work. Some neighborhoods are located where many can get to work in just a few minutes, while others are located such that most residents have a long and arduous commute. The greatest number of commuters in E 169th St / Grand Concourse neighborhood spend between 45 minutes and one hour commuting one-way to work (45.5% of working residents), longer and tougher than most commutes in America.

Here most residents (61.8%) take the train to get to work. In addition, quite a number also ride the bus to get to work (16.1%) and 15.3% of residents also drive alone in a private automobile for their daily commute. This neighborhood is distinguished by the high number of residents who take the train to work each day, which can be a very good way to get to work at a lower cost and with less pollution.
