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: Diversity
Did you know that the S 4th Ave / E 3rd St neighborhood has more
Jamaican and African ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 22.5% of
this neighborhood's residents have Jamaican ancestry and 6.5% have African ancestry.
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 S 4th Ave / E 3rd St neighborhood has
a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.
41.2% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at
all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
98.0% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
More people ride the bus in this neighborhood each day to get to work
than 97.7% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
If you like crowded places, then you will probably enjoy the S 4th Ave / E 3rd St neighborhood. According to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive data analysis, this neighborhood is more densely populated than 96.0% of neighborhoods in the U.S., with 23,657 people per square mile living here.
In addition, renter-occupied real estate is dominant in the S 4th Ave / E 3rd St neighborhood. The percentage of rental real estate here, according to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, is 97.0%, which is higher than 98.6% 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.
Furthermore, one of the really unique and interesting things about the look and setting of the S 4th Ave / E 3rd St neighborhood is that it is almost entirely dominated by large apartment buildings, such as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments. 67.6% 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 95.3% of all neighborhoods in America.
Also of note, the S 4th Ave / E 3rd 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 81.6% 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.
Notable & Unique: People
Single parenting is hard. But you don't have to tell the
S 4th Ave / E 3rd St neighborhood about it; they already know. 19.7%
of this neighborhood's households are run by single mothers, which is a
higher concentration than NeighborhoodScout found in 95.9%
of American 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.
