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: Modes of Transportation
If you like to ride the train to work, this neighborhood may be for you.
NeighborhoodScout's research revealed that 78.2% of the
Humboldt St / Varet St neighborhood's commuters ride the train to and from work each
day, which is more than we found in 99.9% of America's
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 77,980 people per square mile, it is more densely populated than 99.4% of America's neighborhoods.
In addition, one of the really unique and interesting things about the look and setting of the Humboldt St / Varet St neighborhood is that it is almost entirely dominated by large apartment buildings, such as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments. 93.2% of the residential real estate here is classified as such. This puts this neighborhood on the map as having a higher proportion of large apartment buildings than 99.0% of all neighborhoods in America.
Furthermore, the Humboldt St / Varet 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 86.6% 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.
Also of note, renter-occupied real estate is dominant in the Humboldt St / Varet St neighborhood. The percentage of rental real estate here, according to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, is 89.5%, which is higher than 97.0% of the neighborhoods in America. If you were to buy and live in the property you bought here, you would be almost alone in doing so.
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 Humboldt St / Varet St neighborhood has
a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.
60.5% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at
all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
99.1% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Humboldt St / Varet St neighborhood has more
Dominican and Puerto Rican ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 8.3% of
this neighborhood's residents have Dominican ancestry and 19.0% have Puerto Rican ancestry.
Humboldt St / Varet St is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.6% 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 99.7% of the neighborhoods in America.
