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
The Frear Park neighborhood has a greater percentage
of children living in poverty (80.9%) than found in
99.3% of all U.S. neighborhoods. Children living in poverty
is one of the challenges facing America, and the world, and in this
neighborhood in particular, the problem can be considered acute.
In addition, single parenting is hard. But you don't have to tell the
Frear Park neighborhood about it; they already know. 19.5%
of this neighborhood's households are run by single mothers, which is a
higher concentration than NeighborhoodScout found in 95.7%
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: Diversity
Did you know that the Frear Park neighborhood has more
Puerto Rican ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 8.2% of
this neighborhood's residents have Puerto Rican ancestry.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
The Frear Park neighborhood has a greater proportion of
government workers living in it than 95.8% of the neighborhoods
in America, according to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis. This is
a unique feature of this neighborhood, and one that shapes its character.
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 Frear Park 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 55.6% of the real estate here is made up of such dwellings, which is higher than 98.6% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Furthermore, if you find historic homes and neighborhoods attractive, you love the details, the history, and the charm, then you are sure to be interested in this neighborhood. With 68.9% of the residential real estate in the Frear Park neighborhood built no later than 1939, and some built considerably earlier, this neighborhood has a greater concentration of historic residences than 97.6% of all neighborhoods in America. In this regard, this neighborhood truly stands out as special.
