About our neighborhood

We are not designed to change the world – We are designed to change our neighborhood!

Notable & Unique: People

The E 6th St / Parade St neighborhood stands out for having an average per capita income lower than 98.7% of the neighborhoods in the United States. Also of note, 78.5% 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, the types of households in a neighborhood can tell a lot about the character and lifestyle of those living here. Neighborhood Scout’s exclusive analysis reveals that this neighborhood, above nearly every neighborhood in America, has a greater percentage of its residents living alone: 47.5%. This is a higher percent living alone than we found in 95.7% of all U.S. neighborhoods. Often residents who live alone are new arrivals to an area who are single, and often senior citizens who have lost a spouse.

Notable & Unique: Car Ownership

American households most often have a car, and regularly they have two or three. But households in the E 6th St / Parade St neighborhood buck this trend. 29.3% of the households in this neighborhood don’t own a car at all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in 96.7% of U.S. neighborhoods.
