Many things matter about a neighborhood, but the first thing most people notice
is the way a neighborhood looks and its particular character. For example, one
might notice whether the buildings all date from a certain time period or whether
shop signs are in multiple languages. This particular neighborhood in Fair Lawn,
the Radburn neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Radburn neighborhood has more
Russian and Ukrainian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 16.0% of
this neighborhood's residents have Russian ancestry and 7.2% have Ukrainian ancestry.
Radburn is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 24.1% 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 99.9% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: People
Wealth makes most things in life easier, and a few things harder.
If you are wealthy and enjoy keeping up with the Jones', this neighborhood
will interest you. In fact, according to NeighborhoodScout's research,
the Radburn neighborhood is wealthier than 95.9%
of the neighborhoods in the United States. Residents here are truly in
a unique situation even when compared to other Americans, based on the
shear amount of wealth concentrated here. Even in times of economic
downturn, residents of this neighborhood, as a group, suffered less
and recovered more quickly. This is indeed a stand-out characteristic
of this neighborhood.
As one would expect in a considerably wealthy neighborhood such as this,
Radburn also has one of the lowest ratings of child
poverty in the nation.
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 Radburn neighborhood: a neighborhood in which more
"urban sophisticates" live than 99.3% 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 active retirees and highly educated executives.
Also, do you like to read, write, and learn? Are you curious about the world? If
so, this neighborhood may be a good fit for you. NeighborhoodScout's research
revealed that a full 69.8% of the adults living in the
Radburn neighborhood have earned at least a bachelor's
degree. This is a higher rate than NeighborhoodScout found in 96.6%
of U.S. neighborhoods. In this way, this neighborhood truly stands out.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
The Radburn neighborhood has a higher proportion of
its residents employed as executives, managers and professionals than
97.7% of the neighborhoods in American. In fact, 68.5%
of the employed people here make a living as an executive, a manager, or
other professional. With such a high concentration, this truly shapes
the character of this neighborhood, and to a large degree defines what
this neighborhood is about.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
Do you like to be surrounded by people from all over the country or world,
with different perspectives and life experiences? Or do you instead prefer
to be in a neighborhood where most residents have lived there for a long
time, creating a sense of cohesiveness? NeighborhoodScout's analysis
reveals that this neighborhood stands out among American neighborhoods
for the uniqueness of the mobility of its residents.
What is interesting to note, is that the Radburn
neighborhood has a greater percentage of residents born in another country
(42.6%) than are found in 95.4% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, with a real estate vacancy rate of only 0.0%, the Radburn 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.
