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
The 26th Ave / 1st St neighborhood is very densely populated compared to most U.S. neighborhoods. In fact, with 44,855 persons per square mile in the neighborhood, it is more packed with people than 98.3% of the nation's neighborhoods. Do you like a coastal setting? If so, this neighborhood may be to your liking.
The 26th Ave / 1st St neighborhood is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet.
Often such coastal places have amenities and recreational activities on the waterfront
that are attractive to residents and visitors alike.
In addition to being coastal, 26th Ave / 1st 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, 99.2% of the real estate in the 26th Ave / 1st St neighborhood is occupied by renters, which is nearly the highest rate of renter occupancy of any neighborhood in America.
Furthermore, one of the really unique and interesting things about the look and setting of the 26th Ave / 1st St neighborhood is that it is almost entirely dominated by large apartment buildings, such as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments. 93.7% 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 99.0% of all neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the 26th Ave / 1st St neighborhood has more
Puerto Rican and Dominican ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 22.8% of
this neighborhood's residents have Puerto Rican ancestry and 8.5% have Dominican ancestry.
26th Ave / 1st St is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 2.1% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Greek at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.2% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
In the 26th Ave / 1st St neighborhood, 51.9% of people
ride the train to work each day. This is a very high percentage compared
to most places. In fact, NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals that this
is a higher level of train ridership than in 98.9% of the
neighborhoods in America.
Also, would you like to be able to ride your bike to work? If you are attracted
to the idea of getting a little exercise of the two-wheeled type while
reducing your carbon footprint, bicycling to work might be the answer.
But which neighborhood you live in can make this either impossible, or
alternatively, a great and realistic option. NeighborhoodScout's analysis
revealed that the 26th Ave / 1st St neighborhood is a fantastic
option for bicycle commuters, as 4.2% of commuters here do ride
their bikes to and from work on a daily basis. This is a higher amount
than we found in 96.6% of the neighborhoods in America.
Finally, in the 26th Ave / 1st St neighborhood, walking to work is a real
option for many. In fact, NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research reveals
walking to and from work is the chosen way to commute for 12.4%
of residents here. This is a higher proportion of walking commuters than
we found in 95.3% of American neighborhoods. Get ready
to put on your walking shoes if you move here!
Notable & Unique: Car Ownership
Most American households own a car or other vehicle. Many own two cars
or perhaps three. In the United States, it is useful to have an automobile
not only for commuting, but also for shopping and getting to other services
one needs. But NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed that households in
the 26th Ave / 1st St neighborhood have a highly unusual car ownership.
54.6% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at
all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
98.8% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
There are more people living in the 26th Ave / 1st St neighborhood
employed as sales and service workers (55.3%) than almost any neighborhood
in the country. From fast-food service workers to major sales accounts,
sales and service workers make up the largest proportion of our national
employment picture. But despite that size and importance nationally, this
neighborhood still stands out as unique due to the dominance of people
living here who work in such occupations.
Notable & Unique: People
The 26th Ave / 1st St neighborhood stands out for having an
average per capita income lower than 96.7% of the neighborhoods
in the United States.
In addition, single parenting is hard. But you don't have to tell the
26th Ave / 1st St neighborhood about it; they already know. 18.8%
of this neighborhood's households are run by single mothers, which is a
higher concentration than NeighborhoodScout found in 95.1%
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.
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 26th Ave / 1st St
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
26th Ave / 1st St neighborhood unfortunately have the distinction of having,
on average, a longer commute than most any neighborhood in America.
8.4% 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 95.6%
of all neighborhoods in America.
