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
One of the unique characteristics of the Lincoln Ave / Martin Luther King Dr E
neighborhood revealed by analysis is that the per capita income of

The Lincoln Ave / Martin Luther King Dr E neighborhood also has a greater percentage
of children living in poverty (68.4%) than found in

is one of the challenges facing America, and the world, and in this
neighborhood in particular, the problem can be considered acute.
In addition, the types of households in a neighborhood can tell a lot about the character
and lifestyle of those living here. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis
reveals that this neighborhood, above nearly every neighborhood in America,
has a greater percentage of its residents living alone: 62.0%. This
is a higher percent living alone than we found in 99.4% of
all U.S. neighborhoods. Often residents who live alone are new arrivals
to an area who are single, and often senior citizens who have lost a spouse.

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 Lincoln Ave / Martin Luther King Dr E neighborhood has
a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.
35.2% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at
all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
97.5% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, renter-occupied real estate is dominant in the Lincoln Ave / Martin Luther King Dr E neighborhood. The percentage of rental real estate here, according to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, is 91.1%, which is higher than 97.4% of the neighborhoods in America. If you were to buy and live in the property you bought here, you would be almost alone in doing so. Vacant homes and apartments are a significant characteristic of this neighborhood. In fact, with 32.0% of the residential real estate vacant, the Lincoln Ave / Martin Luther King Dr E neighborhood claims the distinction of having a higher vacancy rate than 95.0% 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.
