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
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 79,262 people per square mile, it is more densely populated than 99.4% 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 Ditmas Ave / E 4th St neighborhood is one of the most walkable neighborhoods in America.
In addition, the real estate in the Ditmas Ave / E 4th 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, 77.3% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 96.9% of American neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
If you like to ride the train to work, this neighborhood may be for you.
NeighborhoodScout's research revealed that 54.6% of the
Ditmas Ave / E 4th St neighborhood's commuters ride the train to and from work each
day, which is more than we found in 99.0% of America's
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Ditmas Ave / E 4th St neighborhood has more
Cuban and Russian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 6.1% of
this neighborhood's residents have Cuban ancestry and 6.2% have Russian ancestry.
Ditmas Ave / E 4th St is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 4.3% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Yiddish at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.9% of the neighborhoods in America.
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 Ditmas Ave / E 4th St neighborhood have a highly unusual car ownership.
48.3% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at
all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
98.5% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: People
With more than 2.4% of residents living with a same sex partner,
Ditmas Ave / E 4th St is truly a neighborhood that stands out from the rest in
this regard. In fact, exclusive analysis by NeighborhoodScout reveals that
this neighborhood has a greater concentration of same sex couples than
96.8% 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.
What is interesting to note, is that the Ditmas Ave / E 4th St
neighborhood has a greater percentage of residents born in another country
(45.3%) than are found in 96.4% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
