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: Diversity
Did you know that the Bell Blvd / 35th Ave neighborhood has more
Asian and South American ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 45.8% of
this neighborhood's residents have Asian ancestry and 11.9% have South American ancestry.
Bell Blvd / 35th Ave is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 21.0% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Korean at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.9% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
The freedom of moving to new places versus the comfort of home. How much
and how often people move not only can create diverse and worldly neighborhoods,
but simultaneously it can produce a loss of intimacy with one's surroundings
and a lack of connectedness to one's neighbors. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive
research has identified this neighborhood as unique with regard to the
transience of its populace.
What is interesting to note, is that the Bell Blvd / 35th Ave
neighborhood has a greater percentage of residents born in another country
(50.1%) than are found in 97.7% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
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 28.6% of the
Bell Blvd / 35th Ave neighborhood's commuters ride the train to and from work each
day, which is more than we found in 97.3% of America's
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, corner bodegas, stores on the first floor and apartments above, former grand Victorian residences converted into apartments, three-deckers built shoulder-to-shoulder, duplexes. Such building types define the real estate of neighborhoods dominated by small 2, 3, and 4 unit apartment buildings. Many are in older core neighborhoods of Eastern and Midwestern cities, or historic town centers in their hinterlands. If you wax romantic about the look and feel of such neighborhoods, with fresh pizza, falafel and an independent florist at the corner, then you might find the Bell Blvd / 35th Ave neighborhood worth a close look. This neighborhood is an absolutely outstanding example of the dominance of small 2, 3, and 4 unit apartment buildings compared to neighborhoods across the nation, as they make up a substantial portion of this neighborhood's real estate stock. In fact, no less than 54.5% of the real estate here is made up of such dwellings, which is higher than 98.5% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
