A number of residences were also built before 1940.

Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

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 Marcy Ave / Park Ave neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.

Notable & Unique: Real Estate

The real estate in the Marcy Ave / Park Ave 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, 97.8% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 99.7% of American neighborhoods.

In addition, 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 95,316 people per square mile, it is more densely populated than 99.7% of America's neighborhoods.

Furthermore, most neighborhoods have a mixture of ages of homes in them, from new to old, but this neighborhood stands out due to its concentration of residential real estate built in one time frame: from 1940 through 1969, generally considered older, well-established homes. This was a busy time in America for home construction. After the end of World War II, as GIs came home, bought newly built homes on the edges of cities with the help of the GI Bill, and began their families. This housing era generally coincides with the 'Baby Boom' generation (1945 - 1964), and many baby boomers grew up in homes built in this era. But what is so interesting about the Marcy Ave / Park Ave neighborhood, is that an incredible 89.0% of the homes here were built in this era. So when you walk its streets or drive through, this neighborhood has a look and feel that harkens to that era in American life, a very important slice of Americana.

Also of note, renter-occupied real estate is dominant in the Marcy Ave / Park Ave neighborhood. The percentage of rental real estate here, according to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, is 99.7%, which is higher than 99.4% 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: Diversity

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 Marcy Ave / Park Ave neighborhood has a highly unusual pattern of car ownership. 74.8% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in 99.7% of U.S. 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.

In addition, the Marcy Ave / Park Ave neighborhood is unique for having just 4.2% of adults here having earned a bachelor's degree. This is a lower rate of college graduates than NeighborhoodScout found in 97.0% of America's neighborhoods.

In a nation where approximately one in four children grows up in poverty, this neighborhood stands out for the depth of the problem manifested here.

Notable & Unique: Length of Commute

Regardless of the means by which residents commute, this neighborhood has a length of commute that is notable. Long commutes can be brutal. They take time, money, and energy, leaving less of you for yourself and your family. The residents of the Marcy Ave / Park Ave neighborhood unfortunately have the distinction of having, on average, a longer commute than most any neighborhood in America. 8.8% 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 96.1% of all neighborhoods in America.


The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income

There are two complementary measures for understanding the income of a neighborhood's residents: the average and the extremes. While a neighborhood may be relatively wealthy overall, it is equally important to understand the rate of people - particularly children - who are living at or below the federal poverty line, which is extremely low income. Some neighborhoods with a lower average income may actually have a lower childhood poverty rate than another with a higher average income, and this helps us understand the conditions and character of a neighborhood.

The neighbors in the Marcy Ave / Park Ave neighborhood in Brooklyn are low income, making it among the lowest income neighborhoods in America. NeighborhoodScout's research shows that this neighborhood has an income lower than 95.7% of U.S. neighborhoods. With 61.7% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 95.9% of U.S. neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

The old saying "you are what you eat" is true. But it is also true that you are what you do for a living. The types of occupations your neighbors have shape their character, and together as a group, their collective occupations shape the culture of a place.

In the Marcy Ave / Park Ave neighborhood, 33.7% of the working population is employed in sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations, with 30.8% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in manufacturing and laborer occupations (22.6%), and 12.9% in executive, management, and professional occupations.

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Culture is shared learned behavior. We learn it from our parents, their parents, our houses of worship, and much of our culture – our learned behavior – comes from our ancestors. That is why ancestry and ethnicity can be so interesting and important to understand: places with concentrations of people of one or more ancestries often express those shared learned behaviors and this gives each neighborhood its own culture. Even different neighborhoods in the same city can have drastically different cultures.

In the Marcy Ave / Park Ave neighborhood in Brooklyn, NY, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Puerto Rican (31.3%). There are also a number of people of Dominican ancestry (25.6%), and residents who report Jamaican roots (3.8%).

The Neighbors: Languages

Getting to Work

Even if your neighborhood is walkable, you may still have to drive to your place of work. Some neighborhoods are located where many can get to work in just a few minutes, while others are located such that most residents have a long and arduous commute. The greatest number of commuters in Marcy Ave / Park Ave neighborhood spend between 45 minutes and one hour commuting one-way to work (41.3% of working residents), longer and tougher than most commutes in America.

Here most residents (63.8%) take the train to get to work.
