Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

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.

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 Wayne Ave / W Berkley St neighborhood in Philadelphia are low income, making it among the lowest income neighborhoods in America. NeighborhoodScout's research shows that this neighborhood has an income lower than 91.8% of U.S. neighborhoods. With 51.3% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 93.3% of U.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 Wayne Ave / W Berkley St neighborhood, 37.6% of the working population is employed in executive, management, and professional occupations. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is manufacturing and laborer occupations, with 22.9% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants (21.2%), and 18.3% in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations.

The Neighbors: Languages

The most common language spoken in the Wayne Ave / W Berkley St neighborhood is English, spoken by 98.6% of households.

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 Wayne Ave / W Berkley St neighborhood in Philadelphia, PA, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Puerto Rican (11.3%). There are also a number of people of Jamaican ancestry (4.1%), and residents who report Sub-Saharan African roots (3.1%), and some of the residents are also of Italian ancestry (1.6%).

Getting to Work

Even if your neighborhood is walkable, you may still have to drive to your place of work. Some neighborhoods are located where many can get to work in just a few minutes, while others are located such that most residents have a long and arduous commute. The greatest number of commuters in Wayne Ave / W Berkley St neighborhood spend between 30 and 45 minutes commuting one-way to work (37.5% of working residents), which is at or a bit above the average length of a commute across all U.S. neighborhoods.

Here most residents (57.2%) drive alone in a private automobile to get to work. In addition, quite a number also ride the bus to get to work (15.8%) and 9.2% of residents also carpool with coworkers, friends, or neighbors for their daily commute.
