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: 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 Classon Ave / Clifton Pl neighborhood has
a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.
78.9% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at
all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
99.8% of U.S. neighborhoods.

Eastern European and Haitian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 3.5% of
this neighborhood's residents have Eastern European ancestry and 3.2% have Haitian ancestry.
Classon Ave / Clifton Pl is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.5% of its residents five years old and above primarily

option for bicycle commuters, as 6.7% of commuters here do ride

In fact, with 49,147 persons per square mile in the neighborhood, it is more packed with people than 98.6% of the nation'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.
