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 Vyse Ave / W Farms Rd neighborhood has more
Dominican and Puerto Rican ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 30.6% of
this neighborhood's residents have Dominican ancestry and 22.9% have Puerto Rican ancestry.
Vyse Ave / W Farms Rd is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 2.2% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Mon-Khmer, which is the dominant language of Cambodia, at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.2% 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 Vyse Ave / W Farms Rd neighborhood has
a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.
63.5% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at
all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
99.3% of U.S. neighborhoods.
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 68,778 people per square mile, it is more densely populated than 99.2% 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 Vyse Ave / W Farms Rd neighborhood is among
the top 5% of American neighborhoods in terms of walkability.
In addition, renter-occupied real estate is dominant in the Vyse Ave / W Farms Rd neighborhood. The percentage of rental real estate here, according to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, is 84.1%, which is higher than 95.4% of the neighborhoods in America. If you were to buy and live in the property you bought here, you would be almost alone in doing so.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
More people ride the bus in this neighborhood each day to get to work
than 99.0% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Also, in the Vyse Ave / W Farms Rd 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 98.9% of the
neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: People
Single parenting is hard. But you don't have to tell the
Vyse Ave / W Farms Rd neighborhood about it; they already know. 20.3%
of this neighborhood's households are run by single mothers, which is a
higher concentration than NeighborhoodScout found in 96.4%
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.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
There are more people living in the Vyse Ave / W Farms Rd neighborhood
employed as sales and service workers (58.1%) 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.
