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: Modes of Transportation
More people in Route 14 / Front St S choose to walk to work each day
(29.7%) than almost any neighborhood in America. If you are
attracted to the idea of being able to walk to work, this neighborhood
could be a good choice.
Also, would you like to be able to ride your bike to work? If you are attracted
to the idea of getting a little exercise of the two-wheeled type while
reducing your carbon footprint, bicycling to work might be the answer.
But which neighborhood you live in can make this either impossible, or
alternatively, a great and realistic option. NeighborhoodScout's analysis
revealed that the Route 14 / Front St S neighborhood is a fantastic
option for bicycle commuters, as 6.6% of commuters here do ride
their bikes to and from work on a daily basis. This is a higher amount
than we found in 98.5% 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 Route 14 / Front St S neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 98.6% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
Notable & Unique: People
Of particular note, 9.3% of the people in the Route 14 / Front St S
neighborhood currently reside in a correction facility, held due to
punishment for a crime.
In addition, neighborhoodScout's analysis shows that the Route 14 / Front St S
neighborhood has a greater concentration of residents currently enrolled
in college than 97.6% of the neighborhoods in the U.S. With
21.1% of the population here attending college, this is very
much a college-focused neighborhood.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Route 14 / Front St S neighborhood has more
Norwegian and German ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 13.0% of
this neighborhood's residents have Norwegian ancestry and 38.9% have German ancestry.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, renter-occupied real estate is dominant in the Route 14 / Front St S neighborhood. The percentage of rental real estate here, according to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, is 91.5%, which is higher than 97.5% 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.
Furthermore, the Route 14 / Front St S 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 86.8% 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.
