The way a neighborhood looks and feels when you walk or drive around it, from

neighborhood has some really cool things about the way it looks and feels as

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 100,104 people per square mile, it is more densely populated than 99.7% 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 40th Ave / 21st St neighborhood is among
the top 5% of American neighborhoods in terms of walkability.
In addition, one of the really unique and interesting things about the look and setting of the 40th Ave / 21st St neighborhood is that it is almost entirely dominated by large apartment buildings, such as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments. 99.2% 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 99.9% of all neighborhoods in America.
Furthermore, renter-occupied real estate is dominant in the 40th Ave / 21st St neighborhood. The percentage of rental real estate here, according to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, is 99.6%, which is higher than 99.4% 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.
Also of note, the 40th Ave / 21st 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 86.9% 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.
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 40th Ave / 21st St neighborhood has
a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.
70.9% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at
all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
99.6% of U.S. neighborhoods.

day, which is more than we found in 99.2% of America's

South American and Dominican ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 10.5% of

40th Ave / 21st St is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 3.4% of its residents five years old and above primarily

than 97.9% of the neighborhoods in America.

40th Ave / 21st St neighborhood about it; they already know. 21.1%
of this neighborhood's households are run by single mothers, which is a
higher concentration than NeighborhoodScout found in 96.9%
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: Occupations
There are more people living in the 40th Ave / 21st St neighborhood
employed as sales and service workers (56.6%) 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.
