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 Tulsa,
the City Center neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
Do you like to be surrounded by people from all over the country or world,
with different perspectives and life experiences? Or do you instead prefer
to be in a neighborhood where most residents have lived there for a long
time, creating a sense of cohesiveness? NeighborhoodScout's analysis
reveals that this neighborhood stands out among American neighborhoods
for the uniqueness of the mobility of its residents.
In the Tulsa City Center neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 99.7% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
Notable & Unique: People
An interesting characteristic about the Tulsa City Center neighborhood
is that there are more incarcerated people living here than 99.6%
of neighborhoods in the U.S. The United States has the highest rate of
incarceration in the world, currently with 1 out of every 100 adults in the
country are incarcerated as a punishment for crimes committed. The extremely
high incarceration rate of this neighborhood could mean that a prison, juvenile
detention facility or other correctional facility occupies a large proportion
of the neighborhood, or contains a large portion of the neighborhood's population.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Tulsa City Center neighborhood has more
Native American ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 7.2% of
this neighborhood's residents have Native American ancestry.
Tulsa City Center is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 0.3% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Native American languages at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 96.1% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, the Tulsa City Center 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 96.9% 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.
Furthermore, one of the really unique and interesting things about the look and setting of the Tulsa City Center neighborhood is that it is almost entirely dominated by large apartment buildings, such as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments. 92.2% of the residential real estate here is classified as such. This puts this neighborhood on the map as having a higher proportion of large apartment buildings than 98.8% of all neighborhoods in America.
Also of note, renter-occupied real estate is dominant in the Tulsa City Center neighborhood. The percentage of rental real estate here, according to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, is 93.6%, which is higher than 97.9% 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.
