Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

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 Bedford Park neighborhood has more Dominican and Puerto Rican ancestry people living in it than nearly any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 35.5% of this neighborhood's residents have Dominican ancestry and 15.8% have Puerto Rican ancestry.

Bedford Park is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 0.9% of its residents five years old and above primarily speak Urdu, which is the national language of Pakistan, at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher than 95.8% of the neighborhoods in America.

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 94,732 people per square mile, it is more densely populated than 99.6% 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 Bedford Park neighborhood is among the top 5% of American neighborhoods in terms of walkability.

In addition, 97.0% of the real estate in the Bedford Park neighborhood is occupied by renters, which is nearly the highest rate of renter occupancy of any neighborhood in America.

Furthermore, the real estate in the Bedford Park 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, 89.9% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 98.5% of American neighborhoods.

Also of note, the Bedford Park 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 87.6% 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.

Finally, if you find historic homes and neighborhoods attractive, you love the details, the history, and the charm, then you are sure to be interested in this neighborhood. With 65.6% of the residential real estate in the Bedford Park neighborhood built no later than 1939, and some built considerably earlier, this neighborhood has a greater concentration of historic residences than 96.8% of all neighborhoods in America. In this regard, this neighborhood truly stands out as special.

Notable & Unique: Car Ownership

American households most often have a car, and regularly they have two or three. But households in the Bedford Park neighborhood buck this trend. 62.3% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in 99.2% of U.S. neighborhoods.

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 50.5% of the Bedford Park neighborhood's commuters ride the train to and from work each day, which is more than we found in 98.8% of America's neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: People

Single parenting is hard. But you don't have to tell the Bedford Park neighborhood about it; they already know. 19.7% of this neighborhood's households are run by single mothers, which is a higher concentration than NeighborhoodScout found in 95.9% 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.


The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income

How wealthy a neighborhood is, from very wealthy, to middle income, to low income is very formative with regard to the personality and character of a neighborhood. Equally important is the rate of people, particularly children, who live below the federal poverty line. In some wealthy gated communities, the areas immediately surrounding can have high rates of childhood poverty, which indicates other social issues. NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals both aspects of income and poverty for this neighborhood.

The neighbors in the Bedford Park 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 90.5% of U.S. neighborhoods. With 37.6% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 80.8% of U.S. neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

What we choose to do for a living reflects who we are. Each neighborhood has a different mix of occupations represented, and together these tell you about the neighborhood and help you understand if this neighborhood may fit your lifestyle.

In the Bedford Park neighborhood, 37.1% 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 clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations, with 25.6% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in manufacturing and laborer occupations (22.6%), and 14.7% 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 Bedford Park neighborhood in Bronx, NY, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Dominican (35.5%). There are also a number of people of Puerto Rican ancestry (15.8%), and residents who report Mexican roots (10.3%), and some of the residents are also of South American ancestry (3.3%), along with some Asian ancestry residents (2.9%), among others. In addition, 39.8% of the residents of this neighborhood were born in another country.

The Neighbors: Languages

The most common language spoken in the Bedford Park neighborhood is Spanish, spoken by 58.3% of households. Some people also speak English (28.4%).

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 Bedford Park neighborhood spend between 45 minutes and one hour commuting one-way to work (44.7% of working residents), longer and tougher than most commutes in America.
