Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics
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

German and Norwegian ancestry people living in it than nearly

this neighborhood's residents have German ancestry and 13.0% have Norwegian ancestry.
Medina / Streeter is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 2.7% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak German at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 98.7% of the neighborhoods in America.

With just 2.92 residents per square mile, Medina / Streeter is less crowded than 98.9% of all U.S. neighborhoods. One of the notable things about Medina / Streeter is that it is one of the quietest neighborhoods in America, according to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis and quantitative rating of quietness. When you are here, you will find it to be very quiet. If quiet and peaceful are your cup of tea, you may have found a great place for you.
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
Medina / Streeter neighborhood stands apart from most American neighborhood due
to the proportion of its residents still working in these fields. With 6.7%
of the workforce so employed, this neighborhood has a greater concentration
of such workers than 97.7% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Car Ownership
Most American households own a car or other vehicle. Many own two cars
or perhaps three. In the United States, it is useful to have an automobile
not only for commuting, but also for shopping and getting to other services
one needs. But NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed that households in
the Medina / Streeter neighborhood have a highly unusual car ownership.
Residents of this neighborhood must really love automobiles. NeighborhoodScout's
Analysis reveals that 39.5% of the households here have four, five,
or more cars. That is more cars per household than in 96.5% of
the neighborhoods in the nation.
The Neighbors: Income
There are two complementary measures for understanding the income of a
neighborhood's residents: the average and the extremes. While a neighborhood
may be relatively wealthy overall, it is equally important to understand
the rate of people - particularly children - who are living at or below the
federal poverty line, which is extremely low income. Some neighborhoods with
a lower average income may actually have a lower childhood poverty rate than
another with a higher average income, and this helps us understand the
conditions and character of a neighborhood.
The neighbors in the Medina / Streeter neighborhood in Jamestown are middle-income, making it a moderate income neighborhood.
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals that this neighborhood has
a higher income than 55.4% of the neighborhoods in America.
In addition, 10.7% of the children seventeen and under
living in this neighborhood are living below the federal poverty line, which
is a lower rate of childhood poverty than is found in 60.8%
of America's neighborhoods.
The Neighbors: Occupations
A neighborhood is far different if it is dominated by enlisted military personnel
rather than people who earn their living by farming. It is also different if
most of the neighbors are clerical support or managers. What is wonderful is
the shear diversity of neighborhoods, allowing you to find the type that fits
your lifestyle and aspirations.
In the Medina / Streeter neighborhood, 37.2%
of the working population is employed in executive, management, and professional occupations. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is
manufacturing and laborer occupations, with 26.7% of the residents employed.
Other residents here are employed in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations
(18.7%), and 10.7% in sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants.
The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry
Culture is shared learned behavior. We learn it from our parents, their parents,
our houses of worship, and much of our culture – our learned behavior - comes
from our ancestors. That is why ancestry and ethnicity can be so interesting
and important to understand: places with concentrations of people of one or
more ancestries often express those shared learned behaviors and this gives
each neighborhood its own culture. Even different neighborhoods in the same
city can have drastically different cultures.
In the Medina / Streeter neighborhood in Jamestown, ND, residents
most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as German
(51.6%). There are also a number of people of Norwegian ancestry (13.0%) , and residents who report English roots (4.1%) , and some of the residents are also of Irish ancestry (3.0%) , along with some Danish ancestry residents (2.7%), among others.

neighborhood is English, spoken by 95.6% of households. Some people also speak German (2.7%).
Getting to Work
How you get to work – car, bus, train or other means – and how much of your
day it takes to do so is a large quality of life and financial issue. Especially
with gasoline prices rising and expected to continue doing so, the length and
means of one's commute can be a financial burden. Some neighborhoods are physically
located so that many residents have to drive in their own car, others are set
up so many walk to work, or can take a train, bus, or bike.
The greatest number of commuters in Medina / Streeter neighborhood spend
between 15 and 30 minutes commuting one-way to work (39.6% of working
residents), which is shorter than the time spent commuting to work for most Americans.

a car useful for getting to work.
