The way a neighborhood looks and feels when you walk or drive around it, from
its setting, its buildings, and its flavor, can make all the difference. This
neighborhood has some really cool things about the way it looks and feels as
revealed by NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research. This might include anything
from the housing stock to the types of households living here to how people
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
Some neighborhoods have more internal cohesiveness than others. While other
neighborhoods feel like a collection of strangers who just happen to live
near each other. Sometimes this comes down to not only the personalities
of the people in a place, but how long people have been together in that
neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's research has revealed some interesting
things about the rootedness of people in the Bridge St / Bridgewood Dr
In the Bridge St / Bridgewood Dr neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 99.0% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
Notable & Unique: People
Single parenting is hard. But you don't have to tell the
Bridge St / Bridgewood Dr neighborhood about it; they already know. 21.9%
of this neighborhood's households are run by single mothers, which is a
higher concentration than NeighborhoodScout found in 97.3%
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.
In addition, the Bridge St / Bridgewood Dr neighborhood stands out for having an
average per capita income lower than 96.2% of the neighborhoods
in the United States.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, the Bridge St / Bridgewood 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 94.7% 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 Bridge St / Bridgewood Dr neighborhood. The percentage of rental real estate here, according to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, is 96.0%, which is higher than 98.5% 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. Despite all of the residential real estate here in the Bridge St / Bridgewood Dr 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 35.3%, which is higher than 96.2% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Also of note, the real estate in the Bridge St / Bridgewood 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, 80.3% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 97.3% of American neighborhoods.
Finally, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the Bridge St / Bridgewood Dr stands out as rather unique in having nearly all of its residential real estate built in one time period, namely between 1970 and 1999, generally considered to be established, but not old housing. What you'll sense when you look around or drive the streets of this neighborhood is that many of the residences look the same because of this similarity of age. In fact, 81.2% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
