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
Single parenting is hard. But you don't have to tell the
Goodman St N / Bay St neighborhood about it; they already know. 36.9%
of this neighborhood's households are run by single mothers, which is a
higher concentration than NeighborhoodScout found in 99.9%
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.
In addition, the Goodman St N / Bay St neighborhood stands out for having an
average per capita income lower than 96.2% of the neighborhoods
in the United States.
Also of note, 76.1% of the children in this area
live in poverty; an extraordinarily high percentage compared to other
neighborhoods in the nation. In a nation where approximately one in
four children grows up in poverty, this neighborhood stands out for
the depth of the problem manifested here.
Also, neighborhoodScout's exclusive research revealed that 96.6%
of the adult residents in the Goodman St N / Bay St neighborhood do

adults than found in 97.8% of the neighborhoods in America.

African and Sub-Saharan African ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 11.0% of
this neighborhood's residents have African ancestry and 12.3% have Sub-Saharan African ancestry.
Goodman St N / Bay St is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 2.4% of its residents five years old and above primarily

not only for commuting, but also for shopping and getting to other services
one needs. But NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed that households in
the Goodman St N / Bay St neighborhood have a highly unusual car ownership.
25.5% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at
all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
95.9% of U.S. neighborhoods.
