Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

The W Highland Ave / N 18th St neighborhood is among the top 5% of American neighborhoods in terms of walkability.

Furthermore, one of the really unique and interesting things about the look and setting of the W Highland Ave / N 18th St neighborhood is that it is almost entirely dominated by large apartment buildings, such as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments. 80.4% 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 97.2% of all neighborhoods in America.

Notable & Unique: Car Ownership

Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability

The freedom of moving to new places versus the comfort of home.

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 W Highland Ave / N 18th St neighborhood in Milwaukee 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 87.5% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 99.8% 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.

The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations, with 25.7% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants (22.5%), and 6.9% in manufacturing and laborer occupations.

The most common language spoken in the W Highland Ave / N 18th St neighborhood is English, spoken by 83.5% of households. Other important languages spoken here include Polish, Spanish, Chinese and Korean.

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Culture is the shared learned behavior of peoples. Undeniably, different ethnicities and ancestries have different cultural traditions, and as a result, neighborhoods with concentrations of residents of one or another ethnicities or ancestries will express those cultures. It is what makes the North End in Boston so fun to visit for the Italian restaurants, bakeries, culture, and charm, and similarly, why people enjoy visiting Chinatown in San Francisco.

In the W Highland Ave / N 18th St neighborhood in Milwaukee, WI, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as German (19.5%). There are also a number of people of Irish ancestry (15.4%), and residents who report Polish roots (10.8%), and some of the residents are also of Asian ancestry (10.0%), along with some Italian ancestry residents (6.1%), among others. In addition, 11.2% of the residents of this neighborhood were born in another country.

Getting to Work

Even if your neighborhood is walkable, you may still have to drive to your place of work. Some neighborhoods are located where many can get to work in just a few minutes, while others are located such that most residents have a long and arduous commute. The greatest number of commuters in W Highland Ave / N 18th St neighborhood spend under 15 minutes commuting one-way to work (60.1% of working residents), one of the shortest commutes across America.

In addition, quite a number also drive alone in a private automobile to get to work (35.0%) and 7.1% of residents also ride the bus for their daily commute. This is a special neighborhood for the number of people who walk to work. Combining exercise, low cost, and reduced pollution, plus the chance to see your neighbors, walking to work is fairly uncommon in America but likely to increase as people try to reduce their dependence on automobiles, and this neighborhood offers that opportunity today.
