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: Modes of Transportation
In the 31st Ave / 29th St neighborhood, 79.7% 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 99.9% of the
neighborhoods in America.
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 82,492 people per square mile, it is more densely populated than 99.5% of America's neighborhoods. Even if you drive or take transit to your place of employment, many
people enjoy being able to walk in their neighborhood. What many people
don't realize is that most of America's premier vacation locations are
also very walkable. The 31st Ave / 29th St neighborhood is among
the top 5% of American neighborhoods in terms of walkability.
In addition, the 31st Ave / 29th 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 94.5% 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.
Furthermore, the real estate in the 31st Ave / 29th 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, 85.5% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 98.0% of American neighborhoods.
Also of note, 88.3% of the real estate in the 31st Ave / 29th St neighborhood is occupied by renters, which is nearly the highest rate of renter occupancy of any neighborhood in America.
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 31st Ave / 29th St neighborhood has
a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.
66.6% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at
all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
99.4% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the 31st Ave / 29th St neighborhood has more
Greek and Brazilian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 4.5% of
this neighborhood's residents have Greek ancestry and 2.9% have Brazilian ancestry.
31st Ave / 29th St is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 3.7% 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 99.7% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
Do you like to be surrounded by people from all over the country or world,
with different perspectives and life experiences? Or do you instead prefer
to be in a neighborhood where most residents have lived there for a long
time, creating a sense of cohesiveness? NeighborhoodScout's analysis
reveals that this neighborhood stands out among American neighborhoods
for the uniqueness of the mobility of its residents.
What is interesting to note, is that the 31st Ave / 29th St
neighborhood has a greater percentage of residents born in another country
(45.6%) than are found in 96.5% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
