4th St / Ave U real estate is primarily composed of apartments and renters, so no median house value data are available.

The average rental cost in this neighborhood is higher than 72.3% of the neighborhoods in Texas.

4th St / Ave U is a densely urban neighborhood (based on population density) located in Lubbock, Texas.

4th St / Ave U 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 4th St / Ave U neighborhood are newer, built in 2000 or more recently. A number of residences were also built between 1970 and 1999.

4th St / Ave U has a 14.7% vacancy rate, which is well above average compared to other U.S. neighborhoods (higher than 73.3% of American neighborhoods). Most vacant housing here is vacant year round. This could either signal that there is a weak demand for real estate in the neighborhood or that large amount of new housing has been built and not yet occupied. Either way, if you live here, you may find many of the homes or apartments are 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: People

One of the unique characteristics of the 4th St / Ave U neighborhood revealed by analysis is that the per capita income of residents here is lower than that found in 100.0% of the neighborhoods in America. Also of note, 77.4% 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.

This often also means that the area has certain amenities and services geared towards college students, from undergraduates to graduate students.

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 4th St / Ave U neighborhood. In the 4th St / Ave U neighborhood, a greater proportion of the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is found in 99.7% of U.S. Neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Real Estate

In addition, the real estate in the 4th St / Ave U 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, 91.2% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 98.7% of American neighborhoods.

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 4th St / Ave U neighborhood in Lubbock are low income, making it among the lowest income neighborhoods in America. NeighborhoodScout's research shows that this neighborhood has an income lower than 100.0% of U.S. neighborhoods. With 77.4% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 99.0% of U.S. neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

What we choose to do for a living reflects who we are. Each neighborhood has a different mix of occupations represented, and together these tell you about the neighborhood and help you understand if this neighborhood may fit your lifestyle.

In the 4th St / Ave U neighborhood, 40.5% 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 executive, management, and professional occupations, with 36.6% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations (16.0%), and 6.9% in manufacturing and laborer occupations.

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 4th St / Ave U neighborhood in Lubbock, TX, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as German (19.3%). There are also a number of people of Irish ancestry (13.2%), and residents who report Mexican roots (7.1%), and some of the residents are also of English ancestry (4.1%), along with some Polish ancestry residents (3.8%), among others. In addition, 11.2% of the residents of this neighborhood were born in another country.

The Neighbors: Languages

The most common language spoken in the 4th St / Ave U neighborhood is English, spoken by 90.9% of households.

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 4th St / Ave U neighborhood spend under 15 minutes commuting one-way to work (62.8% of working residents), one of the shortest commutes across America.

In addition, quite a number also hop out the door and walk to work to get to work (16.6%) and 6.2% of residents also carpool with coworkers, friends, or neighbors for their daily commute. In a neighborhood like this, as in most of the nation, many residents find owning a car useful for getting to work.
