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: People
Of note is NeighborhoodScout's research finding that the
Northern Blvd / 58th St neighborhood has some of the lowest rates of children
living in poverty of any neighborhood in the United States. In a nation
where approximately 1 in 4 children are living in poverty, the
Northern Blvd / 58th St community truly stands out from the rest in this regard.
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 66.2% of the

day, which is more than we found in 99.6% of America's
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Northern Blvd / 58th St neighborhood has more
South American and Romanian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 19.2% of
this neighborhood's residents have South American ancestry and 2.0% have Romanian ancestry.
Northern Blvd / 58th St is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 17.0% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak South Asian languages 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 Northern Blvd / 58th St
neighborhood has a greater percentage of residents born in another country
(62.9%) than are found in 99.4% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
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 Northern Blvd / 58th St neighborhood has
a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.
42.8% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at
all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
98.1% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
If you like crowded places, then you will probably enjoy the Northern Blvd / 58th St neighborhood. According to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive data analysis, this neighborhood is more densely populated than 96.6% of neighborhoods in the U.S., with 26,479 people per square mile living here. 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 Northern Blvd / 58th 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 Northern Blvd / 58th 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, 53.8% of the real estate here are small 2, 3, or 4 unit apartment buildings, which is a higher proportion than found in 98.4% of America's neighborhoods.
