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
Whether by choice, divorce, or unplanned pregnancy, single moms may have
the toughest job in the book. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals
that the N 7th St / Woodbine St neighborhood has more single mother
households than 99.8% 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
American households most often have a car, and regularly they have two or
three. But households in the N 7th St / Woodbine St neighborhood buck
31.1% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at
all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
96.9% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the N 7th St / Woodbine St neighborhood has more
Puerto Rican ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 10.3% of
this neighborhood's residents have Puerto Rican ancestry.
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 N 7th St / Woodbine St neighborhood is among
the top 5% of American neighborhoods in terms of walkability.
In addition, if you love row houses and attached homes, you will probably really like the N 7th St / Woodbine St neighborhood. The ambiance, the charm, of row houses is something special. And in sheer abundance of row houses, this neighborhood truly stands out. The real estate here has a higher proportion of row houses and attached homes than nearly any neighborhood in America. In fact, 59.3% of the residential real estate here is classified as row houses and attached homes.
Furthermore, despite all of the residential real estate here in the N 7th St / Woodbine St neighborhood, NeighborhoodScout has discovered that much of it is vacant. In resort or second-home vacation areas, this naturally occurs because homes and apartments are seasonally occupied, and empty for a portion of the year. In non-vacation or resort areas, however, this can be an indicator of property abandonment or a weak real estate market. The vacancy rate here is 32.2%, which is higher than 95.1% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Also of note, 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 67.3% of the residential real estate in the N 7th St / Woodbine St neighborhood built no later than 1939, and some built considerably earlier, this neighborhood has a greater concentration of historic residences than 97.3% of all neighborhoods in America. In this regard, this neighborhood truly stands out as special.
