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: Diversity
Did you know that the Sisquoc / Garey neighborhood has more
Spanish and Portuguese ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 1.8% of
this neighborhood's residents have Spanish ancestry and 1.5% have Portuguese ancestry.
Sisquoc / Garey is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 0.7% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Urdu, which is the national language of Pakistan, at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 95.3% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
It used to be that most Americans lived on the farm, or otherwise made their
living from the land, the forests, or the sea. With global trade and an
economy increasingly based on providing services to one another, fewer
people farm, fish or harvest timber now than at any time in American history.
But according to NeighborhoodScout's leading analysis, the
Sisquoc / Garey neighborhood stands apart from most American neighborhood due
to the proportion of its residents still working in these fields. With 5.8%
of the workforce so employed, this neighborhood has a greater concentration
of such workers than 97.2% of U.S. neighborhoods.
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 Sisquoc / Garey neighborhood has
a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.
Residents of this neighborhood must really love automobiles. NeighborhoodScout's
Analysis reveals that 40.8% of the households here have four, five,
or more cars. That is more cars per household than in 97.0% of
the neighborhoods in the nation.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
This neighborhood has wide open spaces, few people, and lots of space to stretch out. If you like locations that fit that description, you may like this neighborhood. Based on NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis, with only 13.32 people per square mile living here, this neighborhood is less crowded than 96.4% of America.
Notable & Unique: People
If you're nearing retirement age, or in retirement, the
Sisquoc / Garey neighborhood is an excellent choice for you to consider
for top-quality retirement living. This neighborhood is rated by
NeighborhoodScout as among the top 8.1% of retiree-friendly
neighborhoods in California, combining peace and quiet, safety from
crime, and offering diverse housing options from which retirees can
choose. Maybe it's because of these amenities that a large proportion
of the residents here are college educated seniors, mixed with other
age groups. For these and other reasons, NeighborhoodScout identifies
this neighborhood as a top-notch place to consider if you are thinking
of or planning to retire in California.
