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
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 20.3% of
this neighborhood's residents have Dominican ancestry and 18.9% have Puerto Rican ancestry.
95th Ave / Forbell St is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 6.4% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak South Asian languages at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 97.8% of the neighborhoods in America.

the toughest job in the book. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals
that the 95th Ave / Forbell St neighborhood has more single mother
households than 99.5% of the neighborhoods in the U.S.

of family and social issues such as poverty, high rates of school dropouts,
crime, and other societal problems.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
The 95th Ave / Forbell St neighborhood is very densely populated compared to most U.S. neighborhoods. In fact, with 58,465 persons per square mile in the neighborhood, it is more packed with people than 98.9% of the nation'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 95th Ave / Forbell St neighborhood is among
the top 5% of American neighborhoods in terms of walkability.
In addition, three-deckers, duplexes, old Victorian homes cut up into apartments. Independent stores on the corner selling pizza. These are some of the hallmarks of neighborhoods with lots of small 2, 3, and 4 unit apartment buildings. The 95th Ave / Forbell St 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.

three. But households in the 95th Ave / Forbell St neighborhood buck

all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
98.6% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
The freedom of moving to new places versus the comfort of home. How much
and how often people move not only can create diverse and worldly neighborhoods,
but simultaneously it can produce a loss of intimacy with one's surroundings
and a lack of connectedness to one's neighbors. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive
research has identified this neighborhood as unique with regard to the
transience of its populace.
