For example, one might notice whether the buildings all date from a certain time period or whether shop signs are in multiple languages. This particular neighborhood in Brooklyn, the Brighton Beach Ave / Brighton 1st Rd neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.

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. NeighborhoodScout's research has revealed some interesting things about the rootedness of people in the Brighton Beach Ave / Brighton 1st Rd neighborhood. What is interesting to note, is that the Brighton Beach Ave / Brighton 1st Rd neighborhood has a greater percentage of residents born in another country (80.6%) than are found in 100.0% of all 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 87,710 people per square mile, it is more densely populated than 99.6% of America's neighborhoods. 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 Brighton Beach Ave / Brighton 1st Rd neighborhood is one of the most walkable neighborhoods in America.

In addition, the real estate in the Brighton Beach Ave / Brighton 1st Rd 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, 95.1% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 99.2% of American neighborhoods.

Furthermore, the Brighton Beach Ave / Brighton 1st Rd 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 93.3% 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.

If you like to ride the train to work, this neighborhood may be for you. NeighborhoodScout's research revealed that 47.3% of the Brighton Beach Ave / Brighton 1st Rd neighborhood's commuters ride the train to and from work each day, which is more than we found in 98.6% of America's neighborhoods.

But households in the Brighton Beach Ave / Brighton 1st Rd neighborhood buck this trend. 38.5% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in 97.8% of U.S. neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Length of Commute

Whether walking, biking, riding, or driving, the length of one's commute is an important factor for one's quality of life. The Brighton Beach Ave / Brighton 1st Rd neighborhood stands out for its commute length, according to NeighborhoodScout's analysis. Long commutes can be brutal. They take time, money, and energy, leaving less of you for yourself and your family. The residents of the Brighton Beach Ave / Brighton 1st Rd 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.

The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income

There are two complementary measures for understanding the income of a neighborhood's residents: the average and the extremes. While a neighborhood may be relatively wealthy overall, it is equally important to understand the rate of people - particularly children - who are living at or below the federal poverty line, which is extremely low income. Some neighborhoods with a lower average income may actually have a lower childhood poverty rate than another with a higher average income, and this helps us understand the conditions and character of a neighborhood.

The neighbors in the Brighton Beach Ave / Brighton 1st Rd neighborhood in Brooklyn are low income, making it among the lowest income neighborhoods in America. NeighborhoodScout's research shows that this neighborhood has an income lower than 95.9% of U.S. neighborhoods. With 39.4% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 82.7% of U.S. neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

A neighborhood is far different if it is dominated by enlisted military personnel rather than people who earn their living by farming. It is also different if most of the neighbors are clerical support or managers. What is wonderful is the sheer diversity of neighborhoods, allowing you to find the type that fits your lifestyle and aspirations.

In the Brighton Beach Ave / Brighton 1st Rd neighborhood, 34.1% of the working population is employed in executive, management, and professional occupations. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants, with 27.0% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in manufacturing and laborer occupations (23.2%), and 15.7% in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations.

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Culture is the shared learned behavior of peoples. Undeniably, different ethnicities and ancestries have different cultural traditions, and as a result, neighborhoods with concentrations of residents of one or another ethnicities or ancestries will express those cultures. It is what makes the North End in Boston so fun to visit for the Italian restaurants, bakeries, culture, and charm, and similarly, why people enjoy visiting Chinatown in San Francisco.

In the Brighton Beach Ave / Brighton 1st Rd neighborhood in Brooklyn, NY, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Russian (30.3%). There are also a number of people of Ukrainian ancestry (15.9%), and residents who report Polish roots (2.3%), and some of the residents are also of Puerto Rican ancestry (1.6%), along with some Hungarian ancestry residents (1.2%), among others. In addition, 80.6% of the residents of this neighborhood were born in another country.

The Neighbors: Languages

The most common language spoken in the Brighton Beach Ave / Brighton 1st Rd neighborhood is Russian, spoken by 74.2% of households. Some people also speak English (14.8%).

Getting to Work

How you get to work – car, bus, train or other means – and how much of your day it takes to do so is a large quality of life and financial issue. Especially with gasoline prices rising and expected to continue doing so, the length and means of one's commute can be a financial burden. Some neighborhoods are physically located so that many residents have to drive in their own car, others are set up so many walk to work, or can take a train, bus, or bike. The greatest number of commuters in Brighton Beach Ave / Brighton 1st Rd neighborhood spend between 45 minutes and one hour commuting one-way to work (44.9% of working residents), longer and tougher than most commutes in America.

Here most residents (47.3%) take the train to get to work. In addition, quite a number also drive alone in a private automobile to get to work (16.5%) and 16.4% of residents also hop out the door and walk to work for their daily commute. This neighborhood is distinguished by the high number of residents who take the train to work each day, which can be a very good way to get to work at a lower cost and with less pollution.
