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 Cincinnati,
the Central Pky / Central Ave neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
More people ride the bus in this neighborhood each day to get to work
than 99.9% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: People
One of the unique characteristics of the Central Pky / Central Ave
neighborhood revealed by analysis is that the per capita income of
residents here is lower than that found in 99.8% of the neighborhoods
Also of note, 81.4% 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.
In addition, one of the most interesting things about the Central Pky / Central Ave
neighborhood is that it has a greater concentration of residents who live
alone than most all neighborhoods in America. With 57.6% of the
households here made up of people living alone, NeighborhoodScout's research
reveals that this is a larger proportion of people living alone than in
98.9% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Car Ownership
We Americans love our cars. Not only are they a necessity for most Americans
due to the shape of our neighborhoods and the distances between where we
live, work, shop, and go to school, but we also fancy them. As a result,
most households in America have one, two, or three cars. But NeighborhoodScout's
exclusive analysis shows that the Central Pky / Central Ave neighborhood has
a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.
28.9% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at
all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
96.6% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, vacant homes and apartments are a significant characteristic of this neighborhood. In fact, with 47.6% of the residential real estate vacant, the Central Pky / Central Ave neighborhood claims the distinction of having a higher vacancy rate than 98.3% of the neighborhoods in America. This can either be because much of the property is seasonally occupied, like in many vacation areas, or that much of the real estate is more permanently abandoned.
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 60.6% of the residential real estate in the Central Pky / Central Ave 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.
