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 Half Day / Prairie View neighborhood has more
Brazilian and Lithuanian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 2.9% of
this neighborhood's residents have Brazilian ancestry and 2.0% have Lithuanian ancestry.
Half Day / Prairie View is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 4.4% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Russian at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 98.9% of the neighborhoods in America.
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 2.9% of America's neighborhoods are wealthier than the
Half Day / Prairie View 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, the rate of college educated adults in the Half Day / Prairie View neighborhood
is a unique characteristic of the neighborhood. 68.6% 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
95.9% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Also, 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 Half Day / Prairie View neighborhood: a neighborhood in which more
"urban sophisticates" live than 95.0% 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.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, if you love row houses and attached homes, you will probably really like the Half Day / Prairie View neighborhood. The ambiance, the charm, of row houses is something special. And in sheer abundance of row houses, this neighborhood truly stands out. The real estate here has a higher proportion of row houses and attached homes than nearly any neighborhood in America. In fact, 31.3% of the residential real estate here is classified as row houses and attached homes.
Furthermore, this neighborhood has the distinction of having one of the lowest real estate vacancy rates of any neighborhood in America. With just 0.7% of the real estate vacant, this indicates an exceptionally strong demand for real estate in the Half Day / Prairie View neighborhood, and/or an issue with creating enough supply for the demand. This could have the effect of increasing real estate prices, increasing supply to meet demand, or both.
