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 Cleveland,
the Detroit Ave / U.S. Route 6 neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.
Notable & Unique: People
The Detroit Ave / U.S. Route 6 neighborhood stands out for having an
average per capita income lower than 99.8% of the neighborhoods
in the United States.
The Detroit Ave / U.S. Route 6 neighborhood also has a greater percentage
of children living in poverty (87.0%) than found in
99.7% 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, 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: 55.6%. This
is a higher percent living alone than we found in 98.6% 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: Diversity
Significantly, 1.4% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Russian at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 95.2% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, the real estate in the Detroit Ave / U.S. Route 6 neighborhood really stands out in the way it looks for a unique reason: this neighborhood has a higher proportion of apartment complexes or high-rise apartments than nearly every neighborhood in the country. Most neighborhoods are a mixture of real estate and housing types, but here it is almost entirely dominated by big apartment buildings and complexes. In fact, 85.7% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 98.0% of American neighborhoods.
Furthermore, renter-occupied real estate is dominant in the Detroit Ave / U.S. Route 6 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.
Also of note, the Detroit Ave / U.S. Route 6 neighborhood is very unique in that it has one of the highest proportions of one, two, or no bedroom real estate of any neighborhood in America. Most neighborhoods have a mixture of home or apartment sizes from small to large, but here the concentration of studios and other small living spaces is at near-record heights. With 83.2% of the real estate here of this small size, this most assuredly is a notable feature that makes this neighborhood unique, along with just a handful of other neighborhoods in the U.S. that share this characteristic.
