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: Length of Commute

Whether walking, biking, riding, or driving, the length of one's commute is an important factor for one's quality of life. The Pennsylvania College of Technology / W 3rd St neighborhood stands out for its commute length, according to NeighborhoodScout's analysis. Residents of the Pennsylvania College of Technology / W 3rd St neighborhood have the pleasure of having one of the shortest commutes to work of any neighborhood in America. 81.4% of the residents have a commute time from home to work (one way) of less than fifteen minutes. This is a higher proportion of residents enjoying a short trip to work than NeighborhoodScout found in 99.6% of U.S. neighborhoods. Less time commuting means more time for other things in life.

In addition, one of the unique characteristics of the Pennsylvania College of Technology / W 3rd St neighborhood revealed by analysis is that the per capita income of residents here is lower than that found in 99.0% of the neighborhoods in America. Also of note, 76.4% of the children in this area live in poverty; an extraordinarily high percentage compared to other neighborhoods in the nation. In a nation where approximately one in four children grows up in poverty, this neighborhood stands out for the depth of the problem manifested here.

Also, the Pennsylvania College of Technology / W 3rd St neighborhood stands out within Pennsylvania for its college student friendly environment. NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals that this neighborhood is home to a number of college students, is relatively walkable, and above average in safety. In combination, this makes it stand out for a good place for college students to consider.

For each of these reasons, the neighborhood is rated among the top 6.8% of college-friendly places to live in PA.

Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation

More people in Pennsylvania College of Technology / W 3rd St choose to walk to work each day (38.1%) than almost any neighborhood in America. If you are attracted to the idea of being able to walk to work, this neighborhood could be a good choice.

Also, a unique way of commuting is simply not to. And in the Pennsylvania College of Technology / W 3rd St neighborhood, analysis shows that 13.4% of the residents work from home, avoiding a commute altogether. This may not seem like a large number, but it is a higher proportion of people working from home than is found in 97.0% of the neighborhoods in the United States. One thing NeighborhoodScout's research reveals is that the wealthier and/or more isolated the neighborhood, the greater the proportion of residents who choose to work from home.

Notable & Unique: Real Estate

91.8% of the real estate in the Pennsylvania College of Technology / W 3rd St 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 35.6% of the residential real estate vacant, the Pennsylvania College of Technology / W 3rd St neighborhood claims the distinction of having a higher vacancy rate than 96.2% 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, three-deckers, duplexes, old Victorian homes cut up into apartments. Independent stores on the corner selling pizza. These are some of the hallmarks of neighborhoods with lots of small 2, 3, and 4 unit apartment buildings. The Pennsylvania College of Technology / W 3rd St neighborhood really stands out in this regard, however, as it is dominated by such small apartment buildings more than nearly any other neighborhood in America. This is a stunning visual and lifestyle example of this type of neighborhood. In fact, 40.4% of the real estate here are small 2, 3, or 4 unit apartment buildings, which is a higher proportion than found in 96.9% of America's neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability

The freedom of moving to new places versus the comfort of home. How much and how often people move not only can create diverse and worldly neighborhoods, but simultaneously it can produce a loss of intimacy with one's surroundings and a lack of connectedness to one's neighbors. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research has identified this neighborhood as unique with regard to the transience of its populace. In the Pennsylvania College of Technology / W 3rd St neighborhood, a greater proportion of the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is found in 96.6% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood, more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
