About Yonkers, NY (Lowerre)


Real Estate Prices and Overview

Lowerre median real estate price is $373,796, which is more expensive than 49.1% of the neighborhoods in New York and 78.6% of the neighborhoods in the U.S.

The average rental price in Lowerre is currently $1,565, based on NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis. Rents here are currently lower in price than 41.0% of New York neighborhoods.

Lowerre is a densely urban neighborhood (based on population density) located in Yonkers, New York.

Lowerre real estate is primarily made up of small (studio to two bedroom) to medium sized (three or four bedroom) apartment complexes/high-rise apartments and small apartment buildings. Most of the residential real estate is renter occupied. Many of the residences in the Lowerre neighborhood are relatively historic, built no later than 1939, and in some cases, quite a bit earlier. A number of residences were also built between 1940 and 1969.

Lowerre has a 14.6% vacancy rate, which is well above average compared to other U.S. neighborhoods (higher than 73.0% of American neighborhoods). Most vacant housing here is vacant year round. This could either signal that there is a weak demand for real estate in the neighborhood or that large amount of new housing has been built and not yet occupied. Either way, if you live here, you may find many of the homes or apartments are empty.

Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

Many things matter about a neighborhood, but the first thing most people notice is the way a neighborhood looks and its particular character. For example, one might notice whether the buildings all date from a certain time period or whether shop signs are in multiple languages. This particular neighborhood in Yonkers, the Lowerre neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.

Notable & Unique: Diversity

Did you know that the Lowerre neighborhood has more Dominican and Puerto Rican ancestry people living in it than nearly any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 22.6% of this neighborhood's residents have Dominican ancestry and 16.1% have Puerto Rican ancestry.

Lowerre is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 6.7% of its residents five years old and above primarily speak Tagalog, which is the first language of the Philippine region, at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher than 98.8% of the neighborhoods in America.

Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation

Our research revealed that more commuters here take the bus to work (35.5% ride the bus) than 99.5% of all American neighborhoods. If you like the idea of leaving your car and home and hopping the bus to work, this might be a good neighborhood for you to consider.

Also, would you like to be able to ride your bike to work? If you are attracted to the idea of getting a little exercise of the two-wheeled type while reducing your carbon footprint, bicycling to work might be the answer. But which neighborhood you live in can make this either impossible, or alternatively, a great and realistic option. NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed that the Lowerre neighborhood is a fantastic option for bicycle commuters, as 4.0% of commuters here do ride their bikes to and from work on a daily basis. This is a higher amount than we found in 96.3% of the neighborhoods in America.

Notable & Unique: Real Estate

The Lowerre neighborhood is very densely populated compared to most U.S. neighborhoods. In fact, with 47,698 persons per square mile in the neighborhood, it is more packed with people than 98.5% of the nation's neighborhoods. 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 Lowerre neighborhood is among the top 5% of American neighborhoods in terms of walkability.

In addition, 83.6% of the real estate in the Lowerre neighborhood is occupied by renters, which is nearly the highest rate of renter occupancy of any neighborhood in America.

Furthermore, one of the really unique and interesting things about the look and setting of the Lowerre neighborhood is that it is almost entirely dominated by large apartment buildings, such as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments. 66.3% of the residential real estate here is classified as such. This puts this neighborhood on the map as having a higher proportion of large apartment buildings than 95.1% of all neighborhoods in America.

Also of note, 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 60.6% of the residential real estate in the Lowerre neighborhood built no later than 1939, and some built considerably earlier, this neighborhood has a greater concentration of historic residences than 95.5% of all neighborhoods in America. In this regard, this neighborhood truly stands out as special.

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 Lowerre neighborhood have a highly unusual car ownership. 37.2% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in 97.7% of U.S. neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: People

The Lowerre neighborhood has a greater percentage of children living in poverty (67.2%) than found in 97.4% 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 Lowerre neighborhood about it; they already know. 21.5% of this neighborhood's households are run by single mothers, which is a higher concentration than NeighborhoodScout found in 97.1% 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: Occupations

From major sales accounts to fast-food workers, sales and service employees are often the backbone of the local economy. In the Lowerre neighborhood, they truly stand out. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis identifies this neighborhood as having a higher percentage of sales and service workers than 97.4% of all American neighborhoods.


The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income

There are two complementary measures for understanding the income of a neighborhood's residents: the average and the extremes. While a neighborhood may be relatively wealthy overall, it is equally important to understand the rate of people - particularly children - who are living at or below the federal poverty line, which is extremely low income. Some neighborhoods with a lower average income may actually have a lower childhood poverty rate than another with a higher average income, and this helps us understand the conditions and character of a neighborhood.

The neighbors in the Lowerre neighborhood in Yonkers are low income, making it among the lowest income neighborhoods in America. NeighborhoodScout's research shows that this neighborhood has an income lower than 87.5% of U.S. neighborhoods. With 67.2% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 97.4% of U.S. neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

The old saying "you are what you eat" is true. But it is also true that you are what you do for a living. The types of occupations your neighbors have shape their character, and together as a group, their collective occupations shape the culture of a place.

In the Lowerre neighborhood, 45.6% of the working population is employed in sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations, with 23.3% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in manufacturing and laborer occupations (17.2%), and 13.9% in executive, management, and professional occupations.

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Culture is the shared learned behavior of peoples. Undeniably, different ethnicities and ancestries have different cultural traditions, and as a result, neighborhoods with concentrations of residents of one or another ethnicities or ancestries will express those cultures. It is what makes the North End in Boston so fun to visit for the Italian restaurants, bakeries, culture, and charm, and similarly, why people enjoy visiting Chinatown in San Francisco.

In the Lowerre neighborhood in Yonkers, NY, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Dominican (22.6%). There are also a number of people of Puerto Rican ancestry (16.1%), and residents who report Mexican roots (13.0%), and some of the residents are also of South American ancestry (9.2%), along with some Asian ancestry residents (9.1%), among others. In addition, 35.4% of the residents of this neighborhood were born in another country.

The Neighbors: Languages

The languages spoken by people in this neighborhood are diverse. These are tabulated as the languages people preferentially speak when they are at home with their families. The most common language spoken in the Lowerre neighborhood is Spanish, spoken by 56.1% of households. Other important languages spoken here include English and Tagalog (the first language of the Philippine region).

Getting to Work

How you get to work – car, bus, train or other means – and how much of your day it takes to do so is a large quality of life and financial issue. Especially with gasoline prices rising and expected to continue doing so, the length and means of one's commute can be a financial burden. Some neighborhoods are physically located so that many residents have to drive in their own car, others are set up so many walk to work, or can take a train, bus, or bike. The greatest number of commuters in Lowerre neighborhood spend between 15 and 30 minutes commuting one-way to work (35.1% of working residents), which is shorter than the time spent commuting to work for most Americans.

Here most residents (35.5%) ride the bus to get to work. In addition, quite a number also drive alone in a private automobile to get to work (34.8%) and 11.0% of residents also hop out the door and walk to work for their daily commute. The bus provides a valuable service in the Lowerre neighborhood of Yonkers by getting a lot of residents to and from work daily, reducing the costs of commuting and reducing some congestion on the roads as well.
