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
The Buckeye Rd / E 116th St neighborhood stands out for having an
average per capita income lower than 97.4% of the neighborhoods
in the United States.
The Buckeye Rd / E 116th St neighborhood also has a greater percentage
of children living in poverty (64.5%) than found in
96.7% 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, whether by choice, divorce, or unplanned pregnancy, single moms may have
the toughest job in the book. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals
that the Buckeye Rd / E 116th St neighborhood has more single mother
households than 96.2% of the neighborhoods in the U.S.
Often high concentrations of single mother homes can be a strong indicator
of family and social issues such as poverty, high rates of school dropouts,
crime, and other societal problems.
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 Buckeye Rd / E 116th St neighborhood have a highly unusual car ownership.
23.7% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at
all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
95.6% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
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 Buckeye Rd / E 116th St neighborhood is among
the top 5% of American neighborhoods in terms of walkability.
In addition, three-deckers, duplexes, old Victorian homes cut up into apartments. Independent stores on the corner selling pizza. These are some of the hallmarks of neighborhoods with lots of small 2, 3, and 4 unit apartment buildings. The Buckeye Rd / E 116th St neighborhood really stands out in this regard, however, as it is dominated by such small apartment buildings more than nearly any other neighborhood in America. This is a stunning visual and lifestyle example of this type of neighborhood. In fact, 53.9% of the real estate here are small 2, 3, or 4 unit apartment buildings, which is a higher proportion than found in 98.4% of America's neighborhoods.
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 64.8% of the residential real estate in the Buckeye Rd / E 116th St neighborhood built no later than 1939, and some built considerably earlier, this neighborhood has a greater concentration of historic residences than 96.6% of all neighborhoods in America. In this regard, this neighborhood truly stands out as special.
