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.

the depth of the problem manifested here.
In addition, one of the most interesting things about the Mercy College of Northwest Ohio / Jefferson Ave

with different perspectives and life experiences? Or do you instead prefer

time, creating a sense of cohesiveness? NeighborhoodScout's analysis
reveals that this neighborhood stands out among American neighborhoods

This puts this neighborhood on the map as having a higher proportion of large apartment buildings than 99.4% of all neighborhoods in America.
Also of note, the Mercy College of Northwest Ohio / Jefferson Ave 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.
