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
If you like to ride the train to work, this neighborhood may be for you.
NeighborhoodScout's research revealed that 71.1% of the
36th Ave / 33rd St neighborhood's commuters ride the train to and from work each
day, which is more than we found in 99.8% of America's
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the 36th Ave / 33rd St neighborhood has more
Brazilian and Iranian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 3.8% of
this neighborhood's residents have Brazilian ancestry and 2.2% have Iranian ancestry.
36th Ave / 33rd St is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 6.0% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Italian at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.7% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Car Ownership
American households most often have a car, and regularly they have two or
three. But households in the 36th Ave / 33rd St neighborhood buck
51.0% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at
all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
98.6% of U.S. neighborhoods.
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 36th Ave / 33rd St
neighborhood has a greater percentage of residents born in another country
(49.3%) than are found in 97.5% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
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 36th Ave / 33rd St neighborhood is among
the top 5% of American neighborhoods in terms of walkability.
In addition, three-deckers, duplexes, old Victorian homes cut up into apartments. Independent stores on the corner selling pizza. These are some of the hallmarks of neighborhoods with lots of small 2, 3, and 4 unit apartment buildings. The 36th Ave / 33rd St neighborhood really stands out in this regard, however, as it is dominated by such small apartment buildings more than nearly any other neighborhood in America. This is a stunning visual and lifestyle example of this type of neighborhood. In fact, 48.0% of the real estate here are small 2, 3, or 4 unit apartment buildings, which is a higher proportion than found in 97.7% of America's neighborhoods.
