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.

is one of the challenges facing America, and the world, and in this
neighborhood in particular, the problem can be considered acute.
In addition, one of the most interesting things about the Lancaster Ave / Aspen St
neighborhood is that it has a greater concentration of residents who live
alone than most all neighborhoods in America. With 47.9% of the
households here made up of people living alone, NeighborhoodScout's research
reveals that this is a larger proportion of people living alone than in
96.0% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Significantly, 3.5% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Arabic at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 98.3% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
From major sales accounts to fast-food workers, sales and service employees
are often the backbone of the local economy. In the Lancaster Ave / Aspen St
neighborhood, they truly stand out. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis
identifies this neighborhood as having a higher percentage of sales and
service workers than 97.5% of all American neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Car Ownership
American households most often have a car, and regularly they have two or
three. But households in the Lancaster Ave / Aspen St neighborhood buck
33.5% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at
all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
97.2% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, if you love row houses and attached homes, you will probably really like the Lancaster Ave / Aspen 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, 57.3% 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 Lancaster Ave / Aspen 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 35.2%, which is higher than 96.2% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
