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
If you come to know the people here, you will recognize that you're
in the company of one of the wealthiest communities in the nation. In
fact, a mere 0.1% of America's neighborhoods are wealthier than the
Greenfield Hill neighborhood. Real estate here is exceedingly
well-maintained, and similarly, tends to maintain its value over time.
The cars driven are mostly luxury brands like Mercedes, Audi, BMW, and
Lexus. If the public schools aren't up to snuff, the residents of this
neighborhood preferentially send their children to private preparatory
schools. Vacation to Disney? Yes, but equally popular are summers in Europe.
In addition, think about the people you know personally. How many of them would
purchase box seats to opening night at the symphony? How many of them
regularly attend gallery openings, or are the first to reserve tickets
to opening night at the ballet? If they're like most of us, they don't
do any of these things. But if you're among an exclusive crowd of wealthy
and refined patrons of the arts, then you'll feel right at home in
the Greenfield Hill neighborhood: a neighborhood in which more
"urban sophisticates" live than 99.2% of neighborhoods
across the U.S. Here, your neighbors are defined as having urbane
tastes in literature, music, live theatre and the arts. They are wealthy,
educated, travel in style, and live a big city lifestyle whether or
not they live in or near a big city.
In addition to being an excellent choice for urban sophisticates, this
neighborhood is also a very good choice for highly educated executives and families with school-aged children.
Also, the rate of college educated adults in the Greenfield Hill neighborhood
is a unique characteristic of the neighborhood. 79.2% of
adults here have received at least a 4-year bachelor's degree, compared to
the average neighborhood in America, which has 22.6% of the adults with a
bachelor's degree. The rate here is higher than NeighborhoodScout found in
98.8% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Finally, priests and therapists would like to think they know the secrets to a
truly successful marriage, but according to NeighborhoodScout's research,
the folks of the Greenfield Hill neighborhood may actually hold
the key. 70.0% of its residents are married, which is a higher
percentage than is found in 98.2% of the neighborhoods
Notable & Unique: Occupations
Executives, managers and professionals make up 73.0% of the workforce
in the Greenfield Hill neighborhood which, according to
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis, is a higher proportion of such
high-level people than is found in 98.9% of the neighborhoods
in America. For this reason, this neighborhood really stands out as unique.
Notable & Unique: Diversity

Irish and Eastern European ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 22.8% of
this neighborhood's residents have Irish ancestry and 1.9% have Eastern European ancestry.
Notable & Unique: Length of Commute
Whether walking, biking, riding, or driving, the length of one's commute
is an important factor for one's quality of life. The Greenfield Hill
neighborhood stands out for its commute length, according to NeighborhoodScout's
Long commutes can be brutal. They take time, money, and energy, leaving less
of you for yourself and your family. The residents of the
Greenfield Hill neighborhood unfortunately have the distinction of having,
on average, a longer commute than most any neighborhood in America.
13.0% of commuters here travel more than one hour just one-way
to work. That is more than two hours per day. This percentage with two-hour +
round-trip commutes is higher than NeighborhoodScout found in 98.9%
of all neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
In the Greenfield Hill neighborhood, 18.0% of people
ride the train to work each day. This is a very high percentage compared
to most places. In fact, NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals that this
is a higher level of train ridership than in 96.2% of the
neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, one way that the Greenfield Hill neighborhood really stands out, is that it has more large 4, 5, or additional bedroom homes and real estate than 99.3% of the neighborhoods in America. When you walk or drive around this neighborhood, you'll instantly notice the size of the homes here which definitely makes a strong visual statement.
Furthermore, real estate in the Greenfield Hill neighborhood is almost exclusively owner-occupied. NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals that this neighborhood has a higher rate of owner-occupied housing than is found in 98.3% of U.S. neighborhoods. If you are seeking to rent, this neighborhood may not have many options, but high rates of ownership often indicate stability in a neighborhood.
Also of note, some neighborhoods are made up of apartments. Some consist of row houses, and most - by far - consist of a mixture of housing types. But the Greenfield Hill neighborhood stands out due to the total dominance of detached, single-family homes here. There are nearly no other types of residential real estate in the neighborhood. In fact, this neighborhood has a higher proportion of single-family homes in its real estate stock than 97.6% of all American neighborhoods.
