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 E 169th St / Simpson St neighborhood has more
Dominican and Puerto Rican ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 23.8% of
this neighborhood's residents have Dominican ancestry and 29.2% have Puerto Rican ancestry.
E 169th St / Simpson St is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 6.4% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak African languages at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.2% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: People
Whether by choice, divorce, or unplanned pregnancy, single moms may have
the toughest job in the book. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals
that the E 169th St / Simpson St neighborhood has more single mother
households than 99.3% of the neighborhoods in the U.S.
Often high concentrations of single mother homes can be a strong indicator
of family and social issues such as poverty, high rates of school dropouts,
crime, and other societal problems.
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 59,920 people per square mile, it is more densely populated than 99.0% of America's neighborhoods. Even if you drive or take transit to your place of employment, many
people enjoy being able to walk in their neighborhood. What many people
don't realize is that most of America's premier vacation locations are
also very walkable. The E 169th St / Simpson St neighborhood is among
the top 5% of American neighborhoods in terms of walkability.
In addition, 85.7% of the real estate in the E 169th St / Simpson St neighborhood is occupied by renters, which is nearly the highest rate of renter occupancy of any neighborhood in America.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
In the E 169th St / Simpson St neighborhood, 51.7% of people
ride the train to work each day. This is a very high percentage compared
to most places. In fact, NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals that this
is a higher level of train ridership than in 98.8% of the
neighborhoods in America.
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 / Simpson St neighborhood has
a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.
48.8% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at
all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
98.5% of U.S. neighborhoods.
