Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

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.

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 Lexington Ave / E 96th St neighborhood in New York are wealthy, making it among the 15% highest income neighborhoods in America. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals that this neighborhood has a higher income than 98.4% of the neighborhoods in America. In addition, 4.8% of the children seventeen and under living in this neighborhood are living below the federal poverty line, which is a lower rate of childhood poverty than is found in 74.7% of America's neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

A neighborhood is far different if it is dominated by enlisted military personnel rather than people who earn their living by farming. It is also different if most of the neighbors are clerical support or managers. What is wonderful is the sheer diversity of neighborhoods, allowing you to find the type that fits your lifestyle and aspirations.

In the Lexington Ave / E 96th St neighborhood, 83.5% of the working population is employed in executive, management, and professional occupations. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants, with 9.9% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations (5.4%), and 3.4% in government jobs, whether they are in local, state, or federal positions.

The Neighbors: Languages

The languages spoken by people in this neighborhood are diverse. These are tabulated as the languages people preferentially speak when they are at home with their families. The most common language spoken in the Lexington Ave / E 96th St neighborhood is English, spoken by 79.2% of households. Other important languages spoken here include Spanish, German/Yiddish and Tagalog (the first language of the Philippine region).

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 Lexington Ave / E 96th St neighborhood in New York, NY, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Asian (10.7%). There are also a number of people of German ancestry (8.8%), and residents who report Italian roots (8.2%), and some of the residents are also of Irish ancestry (7.2%), along with some Russian ancestry residents (6.0%), among others. In addition, 18.7% of the residents of this neighborhood were born in another country.

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 Lexington Ave / E 96th St neighborhood spend between 30 and 45 minutes commuting one-way to work (46.4% of working residents), which is at or a bit above the average length of a commute across all U.S. neighborhoods.

Here most residents (65.5%) take the train to get to work. In addition, quite a number also hop out the door and walk to work to get to work (11.4%) and 5.9% of residents also ride the bus for their daily commute. This neighborhood is distinguished by the high number of residents who take the train to work each day, which can be a very good way to get to work at a lower cost and with less pollution.
