The average rental price in Chestnut St / S 19th St is currently $2,145, based on NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis. The average rental cost in this neighborhood is higher than 79.6% of the neighborhoods in Pennsylvania.

Chestnut St / S 19th St is a densely urban neighborhood (based on population density) located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Chestnut St / S 19th St real estate is primarily made up of small (studio to two bedroom) to medium sized (three or four bedroom) apartment complexes/high-rise apartments and small apartment buildings. Most of the residential real estate is occupied by a mixture of owners and renters. Many of the residences in the Chestnut St / S 19th St neighborhood are older, well-established, built between 1940 and 1969. A number of residences were also built between 1970 and 1999.

Chestnut St / S 19th St has a 13.0% vacancy rate, which is well above average compared to other U.S. neighborhoods (higher than 67.6% of American neighborhoods). Most vacant housing here is vacant year round. This could either signal that there is a weak demand for real estate in the neighborhood or that large amount of new housing has been built and not yet occupied. Either way, if you live here, you may find many of the homes or apartments are empty.

Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

The way a neighborhood looks and feels when you walk or drive around it, from its setting, its buildings, and its flavor, can make all the difference. This neighborhood has some really cool things about the way it looks and feels as revealed by NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research.

Notable & Unique: People

Of note is NeighborhoodScout's research finding that the Chestnut St / S 19th St neighborhood has some of the lowest rates of children living in poverty of any neighborhood in the United States. In a nation where approximately 1 in 4 children are living in poverty, the Chestnut St / S 19th St community truly stands out from the rest in this regard.

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: 76.7%. This is a higher percent living alone than we found in 100.0% 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.

Also, if knowledge is power, then imagine the cumulative power of one neighborhood where many of the adults have earned an advanced degree, such as a Masters, law degree, medical degree, or even a Ph.D. This is certainly the case in the Chestnut St / S 19th St neighborhood, where 43.6% have earned an advanced degree. Compare that to the average neighborhood in America, where just 8.4% of adults have completed a post-graduate degree, and you can see why this neighborhood is a stand out.

This puts this neighborhood on the map as having a higher proportion of large apartment buildings than 99.2% of all neighborhoods in America.

In addition, the Chestnut St / S 19th St 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 93.1% 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, if you like crowded places, then you will probably enjoy the the Chestnut St / S 19th St neighborhood.

For this reason, this neighborhood really stands out as unique.

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 Chestnut St / S 19th St neighborhood have a highly unusual car ownership. 38.5% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in 97.8% of U.S. neighborhoods.


The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income

There are two complementary measures for understanding the income of a neighborhood's residents: the average and the extremes. While a neighborhood may be relatively wealthy overall, it is equally important to understand the rate of people - particularly children - who are living at or below the federal poverty line, which is extremely low income. Some neighborhoods with a lower average income may actually have a lower childhood poverty rate than another with a higher average income, and this helps us understand the conditions and character of a neighborhood.

The neighbors in the Chestnut St / S 19th St neighborhood in Philadelphia are middle-income, making it a moderate income neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals that this neighborhood has a higher income than 51.0% of the neighborhoods in America. In addition, 0.0% of the children seventeen and under living in this neighborhood are living below the federal poverty line, which is a lower rate of childhood poverty than is found in 100.0% of America's neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

A neighborhood is far different if it is dominated by enlisted military personnel rather than people who earn their living by farming. It is also different if most of the neighbors are clerical support or managers. What is wonderful is the sheer diversity of neighborhoods, allowing you to find the type that fits your lifestyle and aspirations.

In the Chestnut St / S 19th St neighborhood, 72.7% of the working population is employed in executive, management, and professional occupations. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants, with 18.6% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations (8.0%).

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Culture is shared learned behavior. We learn it from our parents, their parents, our houses of worship, and much of our culture – our learned behavior – comes from our ancestors. That is why ancestry and ethnicity can be so interesting and important to understand: places with concentrations of people of one or more ancestries often express those shared learned behaviors and this gives each neighborhood its own culture. Even different neighborhoods in the same city can have drastically different cultures.

In the Chestnut St / S 19th St neighborhood in Philadelphia, PA, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Irish (22.1%). There are also a number of people of Russian ancestry (18.0%), and residents who report Italian roots (15.5%), and some of the residents are also of German ancestry (12.9%), along with some Asian ancestry residents (7.6%), among others.

The Neighbors: Languages

The most common language spoken in the Chestnut St / S 19th St neighborhood is English, spoken by 88.4% of households. Some people also speak Spanish (2.1%).

Getting to Work

How you get to work – car, bus, train or other means – and how much of your day it takes to do so is a large quality of life and financial issue. Especially with gasoline prices rising and expected to continue doing so, the length and means of one's commute can be a financial burden. Some neighborhoods are physically located so that many residents have to drive in their own car, others are set up so many walk to work, or can take a train, bus, or bike. The greatest number of commuters in Chestnut St / S 19th St neighborhood spend between 15 and 30 minutes commuting one-way to work (42.9% of working residents), which is shorter than the time spent commuting to work for most Americans.

Here most residents (41.1%) hop out the door and walk to work to get to work. In addition, quite a number also drive alone in a private automobile to get to work (33.3%) and 13.9% of residents also take the train for their daily commute. This is a special neighborhood for the number of people who walk to work. Combining exercise, low cost, and reduced pollution, plus the chance to see your neighbors, walking to work is fairly uncommon in America but likely to increase as people try to reduce their dependence on automobiles, and this neighborhood offers that opportunity today.
