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
The types of households in a neighborhood can tell a lot about the character
and lifestyle of those living here. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis
reveals that this neighborhood, above nearly every neighborhood in America,
has a greater percentage of its residents living alone: 65.7%. This
is a higher percent living alone than we found in 99.6% 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.
In addition, the N Oracle Rd / W Grant Rd neighborhood stands out for having an
average per capita income lower than 99.4% of the neighborhoods
in the United States.
Also, an extraordinary 12.7% of the residents of the
N Oracle Rd / W Grant Rd neighborhood are currently enrolled in college. This is
such a large part of life in this neighborhood that the neighborhood changes
a great deal with the change of semesters and is far quieter during
the summer when many students are away.
Notable & Unique: Diversity

Native American and Ukrainian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 6.2% of
this neighborhood's residents have Native American ancestry and 1.5% have Ukrainian ancestry.
N Oracle Rd / W Grant Rd is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 2.0% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Native American languages at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.2% of the neighborhoods in America.

are often the backbone of the local economy. In the N Oracle Rd / W Grant Rd
neighborhood, they truly stand out. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis
identifies this neighborhood as having a higher percentage of sales and
service workers than 98.1% of all American neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
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 N Oracle Rd / W Grant Rd neighborhood is a fantastic
option for bicycle commuters, as 5.2% of commuters here do ride
their bikes to and from work on a daily basis. This is a higher amount
than we found in 97.6% of the neighborhoods in America.
Also, more people in N Oracle Rd / W Grant Rd choose to walk to work each day
(14.5%) 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.
Notable & Unique: Car Ownership
We Americans love our cars. Not only are they a necessity for most Americans
due to the shape of our neighborhoods and the distances between where we
live, work, shop, and go to school, but we also fancy them. As a result,
most households in America have one, two, or three cars. But NeighborhoodScout's
exclusive analysis shows that the N Oracle Rd / W Grant Rd neighborhood has
a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.
27.9% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at
all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
96.5% of U.S. neighborhoods.
