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: Length of Commute
Regardless of the means by which residents commute, this neighborhood has
a length of commute that is notable.
Long commutes can be brutal. They take time, money, and energy, leaving less
of you for yourself and your family. The residents of the
Crotona Park N / Clinton Ave neighborhood unfortunately have the distinction of having,
on average, a longer commute than most any neighborhood in America.
23.6% of commuters here travel more than one hour just one-way
to work. That is more than two hours per day. This percentage with two-hour +
round-trip commutes is higher than NeighborhoodScout found in 99.9%
of all 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 Crotona Park N / Clinton Ave neighborhood has more single mother
households than 99.8% 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: Car Ownership
Most American households own a car or other vehicle. Many own two cars
or perhaps three. In the United States, it is useful to have an automobile
not only for commuting, but also for shopping and getting to other services
one needs. But NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed that households in
the Crotona Park N / Clinton Ave neighborhood have a highly unusual car ownership.
73.5% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at
all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
99.7% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Diversity

Puerto Rican and Dominican ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 32.7% of
this neighborhood's residents have Puerto Rican ancestry and 15.1% have Dominican ancestry.
Crotona Park N / Clinton Ave is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 4.1% of its residents five years old and above primarily

people enjoy being able to walk in their neighborhood. What many people
