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: Real Estate
Columbia St / Warren St is a neighborhood that is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet.
Many times, such places have amenities that bring locals and visitors to the
waterfront for recreational activities or to check out the scenery.
In some densely populated areas that are less financially well-off, the neighborhood
waterfront can be relatively industrial and less open to recreation.
In addition to being coastal, Columbia St / Warren St is a very nautical neighborhood,
meaning that it is somewhat historic, walkable, densely populated and
on the water. This gives the neighborhood a very nautical feel,
with some seaside and shipping feel, which some may really enjoy the sights
and sounds of.
In addition, the real estate in the Columbia St / Warren St 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, 77.7% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 97.0% of American neighborhoods.
Furthermore, the Columbia St / Warren St 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 82.3% 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.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
In the Columbia St / Warren St neighborhood, 57.1% of people
ride the train to work each day. This is a very high percentage compared

is a higher level of train ridership than in 99.1% of the
neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Columbia St / Warren St neighborhood has more
Puerto Rican and Haitian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 22.2% of
this neighborhood's residents have Puerto Rican ancestry and 3.2% have Haitian ancestry.
Columbia St / Warren St is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.0% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Hebrew at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 98.2% 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 Columbia St / Warren St neighborhood has
a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.
32.0% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at
all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
97.0% of U.S. neighborhoods.
