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: People
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: 72.0%. This
is a higher percent living alone than we found in 99.9% 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.
In addition, the Pawtucket City Center neighborhood stands out for having an
average per capita income lower than 99.8% of the neighborhoods
in the United States.
The Pawtucket City Center neighborhood also has a greater percentage
of children living in poverty (61.3%) than found in
95.7% 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.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
Our research shows that more people carpool to work here in the Pawtucket
City Center (29.7%) than in 99.3% of the
neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Pawtucket City Center neighborhood has more
Sub-Saharan African and Dominican ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 12.4% of
this neighborhood's residents have Sub-Saharan African ancestry and 10.0% have Dominican ancestry.
Pawtucket City Center is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 8.6% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Portuguese at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.6% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, the Pawtucket City Center 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 91.4% 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, renter-occupied real estate is dominant in the Pawtucket City Center neighborhood. The percentage of rental real estate here, according to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, is 92.5%, which is higher than 97.7% of the neighborhoods in America. If you were to buy and live in the property you bought here, you would be almost alone in doing so.
Also of note, the real estate in the Pawtucket City Center 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, 80.6% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 97.4% of American neighborhoods.
