About Brooklyn, NY (2nd Ave / 44th St)


Real Estate Prices and Overview

2nd Ave / 44th St median real estate price is $647,712, which is more expensive than 78.3% of the neighborhoods in New York and 92.5% of the neighborhoods in the U.S.

The average rental price in 2nd Ave / 44th St is currently $1,409, based on NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis. Rents here are currently lower in price than 50.8% of New York neighborhoods.

2nd Ave / 44th St is a densely urban neighborhood (based on population density) located in Brooklyn, New York.

2nd Ave / 44th St real estate is primarily made up of small (studio to two bedroom) to medium sized (three or four bedroom) small apartment buildings and apartment complexes/high-rise apartments. Most of the residential real estate is renter occupied. Many of the residences in the 2nd Ave / 44th St neighborhood are relatively historic, built no later than 1939, and in some cases, quite a bit earlier. A number of residences were also built between 1940 and 1969.

2nd Ave / 44th St has a 16.7% vacancy rate, which is well above average compared to other U.S. neighborhoods (higher than 78.8% of American neighborhoods). Most vacant housing here is vacant year round. This could either signal that there is a weak demand for real estate in the neighborhood or that large amount of new housing has been built and not yet occupied. Either way, if you live here, you may find many of the homes or apartments are empty.

Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

The way a neighborhood looks and feels when you walk or drive around it, from its setting, its buildings, and its flavor, can make all the difference. This neighborhood has some really cool things about the way it looks and feels as revealed by NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research. This might include anything from the housing stock to the types of households living here to how people get around.

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 2nd Ave / 44th St neighborhood has a highly unusual pattern of car ownership. 81.8% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in 99.9% 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 61.3% of the 2nd Ave / 44th St neighborhood's commuters ride the train to and from work each day, which is more than we found in 99.4% of America's neighborhoods.

Also, in the 2nd Ave / 44th St neighborhood, walking to work is a real option for many. In fact, NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research reveals walking to and from work is the chosen way to commute for 24.3% of residents here. This is a higher proportion of walking commuters than we found in 98.2% of American neighborhoods. Get ready to put on your walking shoes if you move here!

Finally, would you like to be able to ride your bike to work? If you are attracted to the idea of getting a little exercise of the two-wheeled type while reducing your carbon footprint, bicycling to work might be the answer. But which neighborhood you live in can make this either impossible, or alternatively, a great and realistic option. NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed that the 2nd Ave / 44th St neighborhood is a fantastic option for bicycle commuters, as 5.9% of commuters here do ride their bikes to and from work on a daily basis. This is a higher amount than we found in 98.1% of the neighborhoods in America.

Notable & Unique: Diversity

Did you know that the 2nd Ave / 44th St neighborhood has more Dominican and Puerto Rican ancestry people living in it than nearly any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 9.8% of this neighborhood's residents have Dominican ancestry and 14.7% have Puerto Rican ancestry.

2nd Ave / 44th St is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 80.6% of its residents five years old and above primarily speak Spanish at home. This is a higher percentage than 98.6% of all U.S. neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Real Estate

Corner bodegas, stores on the first floor and apartments above, former grand Victorian residences converted into apartments, three-deckers built shoulder-to-shoulder, duplexes. Such building types define the real estate of neighborhoods dominated by small 2, 3, and 4 unit apartment buildings. Many are in older core neighborhoods of Eastern and Midwestern cities, or historic town centers in their hinterlands. If you wax romantic about the look and feel of such neighborhoods, with fresh pizza, falafel and an independent florist at the corner, then you might find the 2nd Ave / 44th St neighborhood worth a close look. This neighborhood is an absolutely outstanding example of the dominance of small 2, 3, and 4 unit apartment buildings compared to neighborhoods across the nation, as they make up a substantial portion of this neighborhood's real estate stock. In fact, no less than 46.8% of the real estate here is made up of such dwellings, which is higher than 97.5% of all U.S. neighborhoods.

In addition, 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 2nd Ave / 44th St neighborhood is one of the most walkable neighborhoods in America.

Furthermore, 84.0% of the real estate in the 2nd Ave / 44th St neighborhood is occupied by renters, which is nearly the highest rate of renter occupancy of any neighborhood in America.

Also of note, 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 65.4% of the residential real estate in the 2nd Ave / 44th St 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: 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 2nd Ave / 44th St neighborhood unfortunately have the distinction of having, on average, a longer commute than most any neighborhood in America. 9.8% 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 97.1% of all neighborhoods in America.

Notable & Unique: People

Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability

Some neighborhoods have more internal cohesiveness than others. While other neighborhoods feel like a collection of strangers who just happen to live near each other. Sometimes this comes down to not only the personalities of the people in a place, but how long people have been together in that neighborhood.

What is interesting to note, is that the 2nd Ave / 44th St neighborhood has a greater percentage of residents born in another country (44.5%) than are found in 96.0% of all U.S. neighborhoods.


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.

NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals both aspects of income and poverty for this neighborhood.
