In fact, with 57,345 persons per square mile in the neighborhood, it is more packed with people than 98.9% of the nation's neighborhoods.

And, according to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive and first quantitative walkable score index, the Walnut St / Yonkers Ave neighborhood is one of the most walkable neighborhoods in America.

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 Walnut St / Yonkers Ave neighborhood worth a close look.

In fact, no less than 56.9% of the real estate here is made up of such dwellings, which is higher than 98.7% of all U.S. neighborhoods.

If you were to buy and live in the property you bought here, you would be almost alone in doing so.

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.

Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability

The freedom of moving to new places versus the comfort of home. How much and how often people move not only can create diverse and worldly neighborhoods, but simultaneously it can produce a loss of intimacy with one's surroundings and a lack of connectedness to one's neighbors.

The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income

How wealthy a neighborhood is, from very wealthy, to middle income, to low income is very formative with regard to the personality and character of a neighborhood. Equally important is the rate of people, particularly children, who live below the federal poverty line. In some wealthy gated communities, the areas immediately surrounding can have high rates of childhood poverty, which indicates other social issues. NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals both aspects of income and poverty for this neighborhood.

The neighbors in the Walnut St / Yonkers Ave neighborhood in Yonkers are lower-middle income, making it a below average income neighborhood.

With 63.6% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 96.6% of U.S. neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

A neighborhood is far different if it is dominated by enlisted military personnel rather than people who earn their living by farming. It is also different if most of the neighbors are clerical support or managers. What is wonderful is the sheer diversity of neighborhoods, allowing you to find the type that fits your lifestyle and aspirations.

In the Walnut St / Yonkers Ave neighborhood, 40.2% of the working population is employed in sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants.

Other residents here are employed in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations (15.9%), and 10.4% in executive, management, and professional occupations.

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Culture is shared learned behavior. We learn it from our parents, their parents, our houses of worship, and much of our culture – our learned behavior – comes from our ancestors. That is why ancestry and ethnicity can be so interesting and important to understand: places with concentrations of people of one or more ancestries often express those shared learned behaviors and this gives each neighborhood its own culture. Even different neighborhoods in the same city can have drastically different cultures.

In the Walnut St / Yonkers Ave neighborhood in Yonkers, NY, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Mexican (31.8%). There are also a number of people of Puerto Rican ancestry (18.1%), and residents who report Arab roots (8.0%), and some of the residents are also of Dominican ancestry (5.8%), along with some Asian ancestry residents (4.6%), among others.

Other important languages spoken here include English, Arabic, South Asian languages and Urdu (the national language of Pakistan).

Getting to Work

Some neighborhoods are located where many can get to work in just a few minutes, while others are located such that most residents have a long and arduous commute.
