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: Occupations
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research identifies the Cherokee Dr / W Ellaine Ave
neighborhood as having one of the highest concentrations of people employed
in manufacturing or as laborers of any neighborhood in America. In fact,
despite the loss of manufacturing jobs nationally, this neighborhood has
53.4% of its working residents employed in such fields, which is a
higher proportion than 99.7% of American neighborhoods.
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 Cherokee Dr / W Ellaine Ave
In the Cherokee Dr / W Ellaine Ave neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 98.8% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
Notable & Unique: People
The Cherokee Dr / W Ellaine Ave neighborhood is unique for having just
2.3% of adults here having earned a bachelor's degree.
This is a lower rate of college graduates than NeighborhoodScout found
in 98.5% of America's neighborhoods.
In addition, single parenting is hard. But you don't have to tell the
Cherokee Dr / W Ellaine Ave neighborhood about it; they already know. 21.0%
of this neighborhood's households are run by single mothers, which is a
higher concentration than NeighborhoodScout found in 96.8%
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.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Cherokee Dr / W Ellaine Ave neighborhood has more
Swiss and Mexican ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 2.0% of
this neighborhood's residents have Swiss ancestry and 72.8% have Mexican ancestry.
Cherokee Dr / W Ellaine Ave is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 62.6% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Spanish at home. This is a higher percentage than 96.2% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
In the Cherokee Dr / W Ellaine Ave neighborhood, carpooling is still a popular
way to get to and from work. NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals that
23.6% of commuters carpool here, which is more than in
97.6% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, renter-occupied real estate is dominant in the Cherokee Dr / W Ellaine Ave neighborhood. The percentage of rental real estate here, according to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, is 96.6%, which is higher than 98.6% 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.
Furthermore, one of the really unique and interesting things about the look and setting of the Cherokee Dr / W Ellaine Ave neighborhood is that it is almost entirely dominated by large apartment buildings, such as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments. 89.2% of the residential real estate here is classified as such. This puts this neighborhood on the map as having a higher proportion of large apartment buildings than 98.4% of all neighborhoods in America.
Also of note, the Cherokee Dr / W Ellaine Ave 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 81.2% 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.
