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.

Polish and Arab ancestry people living in it than nearly

than 99.7% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, most neighborhoods have a mixture of ages of homes in them, from new to old, but this neighborhood stands out due to its concentration of residential real estate built in one time frame: from 1940 through 1969, generally considered older, well-established homes. This was a busy time in America for home construction. After the end of World War II, as GIs came home, bought newly built homes on the edges of cities with the help of the GI Bill, and began their families. This housing era generally coincides with the 'Baby Boom' generation (1945 - 1964), and many baby boomers grew up in homes built in this era. But what is so interesting about the George Urban Blvd / Dick Rd neighborhood, is that an incredible 82.3% of the homes here were built in this era. So when you walk its streets or drive through, this neighborhood has a look and feel that harkens to that era in American life, a very important slice of Americana.
Furthermore, with a real estate vacancy rate of only 0.6%, the George Urban Blvd / Dick Rd neighborhood has a lower vacancy rate than 95.8% of U.S. neighborhoods, a very elite group.

The Neighbors: Income

another with a higher average income, and this helps us understand the
