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: Car Ownership
Most American households own a car or other vehicle. Many own two cars
or perhaps three. In the United States, it is useful to have an automobile
not only for commuting, but also for shopping and getting to other services
one needs. But NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed that households in
the Utica College / York St neighborhood have a highly unusual car ownership.
100.0% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at
all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
99.9% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: People
Of note is NeighborhoodScout's research finding that the
Utica College / York 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
Utica College / York St community truly stands out from the rest in this regard.
In addition, an extraordinary 80.2% of the residents of the
Utica College / York St neighborhood are currently enrolled in college. This is
such a large part of life in this neighborhood that the neighborhood changes
a great deal with the change of semesters and is far quieter during
the summer when many students are away.
Notable & Unique: Diversity

Lebanese and Ukrainian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 3.9% of
this neighborhood's residents have Lebanese ancestry and 3.7% have Ukrainian ancestry.
Utica College / York St is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 4.0% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Italian at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.4% 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.
In the Utica College / York St neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 99.6% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation

(47.0%) than almost any neighborhood in America. If you are
attracted to the idea of being able to walk to work, this neighborhood
could be a good choice.

are often the backbone of the local economy. In the Utica College / York St
neighborhood, they truly stand out. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis
identifies this neighborhood as having a higher percentage of sales and
service workers than 96.0% of all American neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, 98.5% of the real estate in the Utica College / York St neighborhood is occupied by renters, which is nearly the highest rate of renter occupancy of any neighborhood in America. With a real estate vacancy rate of only 0.0%, the Utica College / York St neighborhood has a lower vacancy rate than 100.0% of U.S. neighborhoods, a very elite group. Such a low vacancy rate may indicate very strong real estate demand in the neighborhood combined with some impediments to increasing supply, such as zoning or existing density of development, among other potential reasons.
Furthermore, some neighborhoods are made up of apartments. Some consist of row houses, and most - by far - consist of a mixture of housing types. But the Utica College / York St neighborhood stands out due to the total dominance of detached, single-family homes here. There are nearly no other types of residential real estate in the neighborhood. In fact, this neighborhood has a higher proportion of single-family homes in its real estate stock than 99.3% of all American neighborhoods.
Also of note, one way that the Utica College / York St neighborhood really stands out, is that it has more large 4, 5, or additional bedroom homes and real estate than 96.1% of the neighborhoods in America.
