Rents here are currently lower in price than 100.0% of Pennsylvania neighborhoods.

Elmore Sq / Bentley Dr is a densely urban neighborhood (based on population density) located in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Elmore Sq / Bentley Dr 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 renter occupied. Many of the residences in the Elmore Sq / Bentley Dr neighborhood are older, well-established, built between 1940 and 1969. A number of residences were also built before 1940.

Vacant apartments or homes are a major fact of life in Elmore Sq / Bentley Dr. The current real estate vacancy rate here is 36.0%. This is higher than the rate of vacancies in 96.4% of all U.S. neighborhoods. In addition, most vacant housing here is vacant year round. This can sometimes be the case in neighborhoods dominated by new construction that is not yet occupied. But often neighborhoods with vacancy rates this high are places that can be plagued by a protracted vacancy problem. If you live here, you may find that a number of buildings in your neighborhood are actually empty.

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. 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: Modes of Transportation

More people ride the bus in this neighborhood each day to get to work than 100.0% of U.S. neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: People

The Elmore Sq / Bentley Dr neighborhood stands out for having an average per capita income lower than 99.9% of the neighborhoods in the United States. The Elmore Sq / Bentley Dr neighborhood also has a greater percentage of children living in poverty (96.1%) than found in 99.9% of all U.S. neighborhoods. Children living in poverty is one of the challenges facing America, and the world, and in this neighborhood in particular, the problem can be considered acute.

In addition, the Elmore Sq / Bentley Dr neighborhood is unique for having just 0.0% of adults here having earned a bachelor's degree. This is a lower rate of college graduates than NeighborhoodScout found in 99.5% of America's neighborhoods.

Also, single parenting is hard. But you don't have to tell the Elmore Sq / Bentley Dr neighborhood about it; they already know. 30.2% of this neighborhood's households are run by single mothers, which is a higher concentration than NeighborhoodScout found in 99.5% of American neighborhoods. Further NeighborhoodScout research showed strong statistical correlations among high rates of children living in single parent households, and neighborhood crime, particularly violent crime, neighborhood poverty, and, importantly, the percentage of low weight births and rates of infant mortality.

Notable & Unique: Car Ownership

We Americans love our cars. Not only are they a necessity for most Americans due to the shape of our neighborhoods and the distances between where we live, work, shop, and go to school, but we also fancy them. As a result, most households in America have one, two, or three cars. But NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis shows that the Elmore Sq / Bentley Dr neighborhood has a highly unusual pattern of car ownership. 81.9% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in 99.9% of U.S. neighborhoods.

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 Elmore Sq / Bentley Dr neighborhood, they truly stand out. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis identifies this neighborhood as having a higher percentage of sales and service workers than 99.7% of all American neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Diversity

Did you know that the Elmore Sq / Bentley Dr neighborhood has more African and Sub-Saharan African ancestry people living in it than nearly any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 19.3% of this neighborhood's residents have African ancestry and 20.3% have Sub-Saharan African ancestry.

Elmore Sq / Bentley Dr is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 4.3% of its residents five years old and above primarily speak African languages at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher than 98.4% of the neighborhoods in America.

Notable & Unique: Real Estate

99.1% of the real estate in the Elmore Sq / Bentley Dr neighborhood is occupied by renters, which is nearly the highest rate of renter occupancy of any neighborhood in America. Vacant homes and apartments are a significant characteristic of this neighborhood. In fact, with 36.0% of the residential real estate vacant, the Elmore Sq / Bentley Dr neighborhood claims the distinction of having a higher vacancy rate than 96.4% of the neighborhoods in America. This can either be because much of the property is seasonally occupied, like in many vacation areas, or that much of the real estate is more permanently abandoned.

In addition, the real estate in the Elmore Sq / Bentley Dr neighborhood really stands out in the way it looks for a unique reason: this neighborhood has a higher proportion of apartment complexes or high-rise apartments than nearly every neighborhood in the country. Most neighborhoods are a mixture of real estate and housing types, but here it is almost entirely dominated by big apartment buildings and complexes. In fact, 77.3% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 96.9% of American neighborhoods.

Furthermore, the Elmore Sq / Bentley Dr 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 84.1% 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.


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 Elmore Sq / Bentley Dr neighborhood in Pittsburgh are low income, making it among the lowest income neighborhoods in America. NeighborhoodScout's research shows that this neighborhood has an income lower than 99.9% of U.S. neighborhoods. With 96.1% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 99.9% 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 Elmore Sq / Bentley Dr neighborhood, 57.6% of the working population is employed in sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is manufacturing and laborer occupations, with 37.5% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations (4.9%).

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 Elmore Sq / Bentley Dr neighborhood in Pittsburgh, PA, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Sub-Saharan African (20.3%). There are also a number of people of African ancestry (19.3%).

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 Elmore Sq / Bentley Dr neighborhood spend between 15 and 30 minutes commuting one-way to work (55.6% of working residents), which is shorter than the time spent commuting to work for most Americans.

Here most residents (68.8%) ride the bus to get to work. In addition, quite a number also drive alone in a private automobile to get to work (27.8%) . The bus provides a valuable service in the Elmore Sq / Bentley Dr neighborhood of Pittsburgh by getting a lot of residents to and from work daily, reducing the costs of commuting and reducing some congestion on the roads as well.
