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: 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 80,117 people per square mile, it is more densely populated than 99.4% of America's neighborhoods. 1st Ave / E 110th St is a neighborhood that is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet.
Many times, such places have amenities that bring locals and visitors to the
waterfront for recreational activities or to check out the scenery.
In some densely populated areas that are less financially well-off, the neighborhood
waterfront can be relatively industrial and less open to recreation.
In addition to being coastal, 1st Ave / E 110th St is a very nautical neighborhood,
meaning that it is somewhat historic, walkable, densely populated and
on the water. This gives the neighborhood a very nautical feel,
with some seaside and shipping feel, which some may really enjoy the sights
and sounds of.
In addition, the real estate in the 1st Ave / E 110th St 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, 96.8% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 99.5% of American neighborhoods.
Furthermore, renter-occupied real estate is dominant in the 1st Ave / E 110th St neighborhood. The percentage of rental real estate here, according to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, is 93.0%, which is higher than 97.8% 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 1st Ave / E 110th St neighborhood has
a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.
80.4% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at
all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
99.8% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Diversity

Puerto Rican and Dominican ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 32.2% of
this neighborhood's residents have Puerto Rican ancestry and 5.9% have Dominican ancestry.
1st Ave / E 110th St is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.1% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Portuguese at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 95.4% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
In the 1st Ave / E 110th St neighborhood, 43.6% of people

neighborhoods in America.
Also, more people in 1st Ave / E 110th St choose to walk to work each day
(22.3%) than almost any neighborhood in America. If you are
attracted to the idea of being able to walk to work, this neighborhood
could be a good choice.
Finally, our research revealed that more commuters here take the bus to work
(16.6% ride the bus) than 95.6% of all American
neighborhoods. If you like the idea of leaving your car and home and
hopping the bus to work, this might be a good neighborhood for you to
Notable & Unique: People
Single parenting is hard. But you don't have to tell the
1st Ave / E 110th St neighborhood about it; they already know. 20.6%
of this neighborhood's households are run by single mothers, which is a
higher concentration than NeighborhoodScout found in 96.6%
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.
