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: 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 Utica Ave / Tilden Ave neighborhood has
a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.
26.2% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at
all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
96.1% of U.S. neighborhoods.
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 Utica Ave / Tilden 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
Utica Ave / Tilden Ave neighborhood unfortunately have the distinction of having,
on average, a longer commute than most any neighborhood in America.
8.1% 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 95.1%
of all neighborhoods in America.
