Lakewood is an urban neighborhood (based on population density) located in North Little Rock, Arkansas.
Lakewood real estate is primarily made up of medium sized (three or four bedroom) to small (studio to two bedroom) single-family homes and apartment complexes/high-rise apartments. Most of the residential real estate is occupied by a mixture of owners and renters. Many of the residences in the Lakewood neighborhood are older, well-established, built between 1940 and 1969. A number of residences were also built between 1970 and 1999.
Lakewood has a 11.5% vacancy rate, which is well above average compared to other U.S. neighborhoods (higher than 61.5% of American neighborhoods). This could either signal that there is weak demand for real estate in the neighborhood, or that much of the housing stock is seasonally occupied, which can occur in some markets dominated by colleges or vacation homes. Either way, if you live here year round, you will find many of the homes or apartments are empty for all or a portion of the year.Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

This neighborhood is very unique in some important ways, according to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive exploration and analysis.Notable & Unique: Diversity

There are two complimentary 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.

NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals that this neighborhood has a higher income than 67.4% of the neighborhoods in America. In addition, 6.2% of the children seventeen and under living in this neighborhood are living below the federal poverty line, which is a lower rate of childhood poverty than is found in 70.2% of America's neighborhoods.The Neighbors: Occupations
The old saying "you are what you eat" is true. But it is also true that you are what you do for a living.

The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants, with 22.4% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in manufacturing and laborer occupations (15.7%), and 11.2% in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations.The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry
Culture is shared learned behavior. We learn it from our parents, their parents, our houses of worship, and much of our culture – our learned behavior - comes from our ancestors. That is why ancestry and ethnicity can be so interesting and important to understand: places with concentrations of people of one or more ancestries often express those shared learned behaviors and this gives each neighborhood its own culture. Even different neighborhoods in the same city can have drastically different cultures. In the Lakewood neighborhood in North Little Rock, AR, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as English (11.8%). There are also a number of people of Irish ancestry (9.3%) , and residents who report German roots (6.6%) , and some of the residents are also of Scots-Irish ancestry (4.6%) , along with some Italian ancestry residents (2.2%), among others.The Neighbors: Languages

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 Lakewood neighborhood spend between 15 and 30 minutes commuting one-way to work (45.8% of working residents), which is shorter than the time spent commuting to work for most Americans.
Here most residents (93.5%) drive alone in a private automobile to get to work. In a neighborhood like this, as in most of the nation, many residents find owning a car useful for getting to work.
