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 64.8% of the
Manhattan Ave / Johnson Ave neighborhood's commuters ride the train to and from work each
day, which is more than we found in 99.5% of America's
Also, would you like to be able to ride your bike to work? If you are attracted
to the idea of getting a little exercise of the two-wheeled type while
reducing your carbon footprint, bicycling to work might be the answer.
But which neighborhood you live in can make this either impossible, or
alternatively, a great and realistic option. NeighborhoodScout's analysis
revealed that the Manhattan Ave / Johnson Ave neighborhood is a fantastic
option for bicycle commuters, as 3.8% of commuters here do ride
their bikes to and from work on a daily basis. This is a higher amount
than we found in 96.0% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Manhattan Ave / Johnson Ave neighborhood has more
Puerto Rican and Dominican ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 28.6% of
this neighborhood's residents have Puerto Rican ancestry and 12.3% have Dominican ancestry.
Manhattan Ave / Johnson Ave is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 4.5% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Polish at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.3% 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 Manhattan Ave / Johnson Ave neighborhood has
a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.
66.5% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at
all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
99.4% of U.S. neighborhoods.
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 63,644 people per square mile, it is more densely populated than 99.1% 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 Manhattan Ave / Johnson Ave neighborhood is one of the most walkable neighborhoods in America.
In addition, the Manhattan Ave / Johnson Ave 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 94.7% 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.
Furthermore, one of the really unique and interesting things about the look and setting of the Manhattan Ave / Johnson Ave neighborhood is that it is almost entirely dominated by large apartment buildings, such as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments. 86.3% 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 98.1% of all neighborhoods in America.
Also of note, 87.3% of the real estate in the Manhattan Ave / Johnson Ave neighborhood is occupied by renters, which is nearly the highest rate of renter occupancy of any neighborhood in America.
