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: 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 Ave Q / 4th St
In the Ave Q / 4th St neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 99.8% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
Notable & Unique: People
One of the unique characteristics of the Ave Q / 4th 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
Also of note, 89.1% 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.
In addition, an extraordinary 57.4% of the residents of the
Ave Q / 4th St neighborhood are currently enrolled in college. This is
such a large part of life in this neighborhood that the neighborhood changes
a great deal with the change of semesters and is far quieter during
the summer when many students are away.
Also, the Ave Q / 4th St neighborhood stands out within Texas
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.
Because a number of college students live here, this neighborhood may
be close to a college campus and offer certain amenities nearby geared
towards the student body. While it's not an environment for everyone,
ambitious scholars can enjoy seasonal excitement between semesters and
school breaks, and parents can rest easy knowing that the area has an
above average safety rating. For each of these reasons, the
neighborhood is rated among the top 8%
of college-friendly places to live in TX.
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 Ave Q / 4th St
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: Car Ownership
Most American households own a car or other vehicle. Many own two cars
or perhaps three. In the United States, it is useful to have an automobile
not only for commuting, but also for shopping and getting to other services
one needs. But NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed that households in
the Ave Q / 4th St neighborhood have a highly unusual car ownership.
Residents of this neighborhood must really love automobiles. NeighborhoodScout's

or more cars. That is more cars per household than in 97.4% of
the neighborhoods in the nation.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Significantly, 1.1% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Urdu, which is the national language of Pakistan, at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 96.6% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, 100.0% of the real estate in the Ave Q / 4th St neighborhood is occupied by renters, which is nearly the highest rate of renter occupancy of any neighborhood in America.
Furthermore, if you like the look and ambience of new homes and newly built neighborhoods, you will love the Ave Q / 4th St neighborhood. A whopping 74.0% of the homes and other residential real estate here were built after 1999, which is a higher proportion of new homes then you will find in 98.7% of the neighborhoods in the U.S. Everything here just feels new.
Also of note, 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 Ave Q / 4th 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, 34.0% of the real estate here are small 2, 3, or 4 unit apartment buildings, which is a higher proportion than found in 95.0% of America's neighborhoods.
