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.

Dominican and Puerto Rican ancestry people living in it than nearly

In fact, with 48,295 persons per square mile in the neighborhood, it is more packed with people than 98.5% of the nation'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 Barnes Ave / Barnett Pl neighborhood is one of the most walkable neighborhoods in America.

These are some of the hallmarks of neighborhoods with lots of small 2, 3, and 4 unit apartment buildings. The Barnes Ave / Barnett Pl neighborhood really stands out in this regard, however, as it is dominated by such small apartment buildings more than nearly any other neighborhood in America. This is a stunning visual and lifestyle example of this type of neighborhood.

Long commutes can be brutal. They take time, money, and energy, leaving less

round-trip commutes is higher than NeighborhoodScout found in 97.6%
of all neighborhoods in America.

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
