Many things matter about a neighborhood, but the first thing most people notice
is the way a neighborhood looks and its particular character. 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 Conduit Blvd / Euclid Ave neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.

Did you know that the Conduit Blvd / Euclid Ave neighborhood has more
Dominican and Puerto Rican ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 26.2% of
this neighborhood's residents have Dominican ancestry and 18.4% have Puerto Rican ancestry.
Conduit Blvd / Euclid Ave is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 10.2% 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 99.1% of the neighborhoods in America.

If you like to ride the train to work, this neighborhood may be for you.
NeighborhoodScout's research revealed that 67.5% of the
Conduit Blvd / Euclid Ave neighborhood's commuters ride the train to and from work each
day, which is more than we found in 99.6% of America's
Notable & Unique: Car Ownership
Most American households own a car or other vehicle. Many own two cars
or perhaps three. In the United States, it is useful to have an automobile
not only for commuting, but also for shopping and getting to other services
one needs. But NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed that households in
the Conduit Blvd / Euclid Ave neighborhood have a highly unusual car ownership.
70.8% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at
all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
99.6% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: People
Single parenting is hard. But you don't have to tell the
Conduit Blvd / Euclid Ave neighborhood about it; they already know. 29.7%
of this neighborhood's households are run by single mothers, which is a
higher concentration than NeighborhoodScout found in 99.5%
of American neighborhoods. Further NeighborhoodScout research showed strong
statistical correlations among high rates of children living in single
parent households, and neighborhood crime, particularly violent crime,
neighborhood poverty, and, importantly, the percentage of low weight births
and rates of infant mortality.
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 Conduit Blvd / Euclid Ave
neighborhood stands out for its commute length, according to NeighborhoodScout's
Long commutes can be brutal. They take time, money, and energy, leaving less
of you for yourself and your family. The residents of the
Conduit Blvd / Euclid Ave neighborhood unfortunately have the distinction of having,
on average, a longer commute than most any neighborhood in America.
11.9% 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 98.5%
of all neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
The Conduit Blvd / Euclid Ave neighborhood is very densely populated compared to most U.S. neighborhoods. In fact, with 39,218 persons per square mile in the neighborhood, it is more packed with people than 98.0% 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 Conduit Blvd / Euclid Ave neighborhood is among
the top 5% of American neighborhoods in terms of walkability.
In addition, 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 Conduit Blvd / Euclid Ave 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 60.5% of the real estate here is made up of such dwellings, which is higher than 99.0% of all 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.
What is interesting to note, is that the Conduit Blvd / Euclid Ave
neighborhood has a greater percentage of residents born in another country
(42.8%) than are found in 95.4% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
