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
Of note is NeighborhoodScout's research finding that the
W Broad St / N Parham Rd neighborhood has some of the lowest rates of children
living in poverty of any neighborhood in the United States. In a nation
where approximately 1 in 4 children are living in poverty, the
W Broad St / N Parham Rd community truly stands out from the rest in this regard.
In addition, one of the most interesting things about the W Broad St / N Parham Rd
neighborhood is that it has a greater concentration of residents who live
alone than most all neighborhoods in America. With 52.9% of the
households here made up of people living alone, NeighborhoodScout's research
reveals that this is a larger proportion of people living alone than in
98.0% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
Do you like to be surrounded by people from all over the country or world,
with different perspectives and life experiences? Or do you instead prefer
to be in a neighborhood where most residents have lived there for a long
time, creating a sense of cohesiveness? NeighborhoodScout's analysis
reveals that this neighborhood stands out among American neighborhoods
for the uniqueness of the mobility of its residents.
In the W Broad St / N Parham Rd neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 98.5% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the W Broad St / N Parham Rd neighborhood has more
Asian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 31.9% of
this neighborhood's residents have Asian ancestry.
W Broad St / N Parham Rd is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 5.1% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Hindi, which is the official language of India at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.5% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, the W Broad St / N Parham Rd 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 99.2% 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.
Furthermore, 99.0% of the real estate in the W Broad St / N Parham Rd neighborhood is occupied by renters, which is nearly the highest rate of renter occupancy of any neighborhood in America.
Also of note, one of the really unique and interesting things about the look and setting of the W Broad St / N Parham Rd neighborhood is that it is almost entirely dominated by large apartment buildings, such as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments. 76.0% 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 96.7% of all neighborhoods in America.
Finally, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the W Broad St / N Parham Rd 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, 86.8% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
