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.

Spanish ancestry people living in it than nearly

this neighborhood's residents have Spanish ancestry.
Brookland is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 2.8% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak African languages at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 97.2% of the neighborhoods in America.

also be a major employer. What NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed, is
that the Brookland neighborhood in particular stands out
when compared nationally for the proportion of its working residents who
are employed by the government. At 17.0% of its workforce, this

Notable & Unique: People
If you're a regular supporter of the arts and enjoy outings to the
theatre, weekend boutique-ing, or even a finely aged wine with dinner,

neighborhood. This neighborhood is uniquely immersed with more "urban
sophisticates" than 97.5% of neighborhoods across the
country. The people here truly stand out as a class among their own.
They are an exclusive community characterized by refined tastes,
cultural inclinations, and the means to live well. Urban sophisticates
live a big city lifestyle, whether or not they live in or near a big

patrons of the arts by weekend. If this lifestyle pertains to you,
than you'll certainly feel right at home in the Brookland
In addition to being an excellent choice for urban sophisticates, this
neighborhood is also a very good choice for families with school-aged children.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, with a real estate vacancy rate of only 0.0%, the Brookland neighborhood has a lower vacancy rate than 100.0% of U.S. neighborhoods, a very elite group. Such a low vacancy rate may indicate very strong real estate demand in the neighborhood combined with some impediments to increasing supply, such as zoning or existing density of development, among other potential reasons.
