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 Noxon neighborhood has more
Arab and Portuguese ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 9.8% of
this neighborhood's residents have Arab ancestry and 5.8% have Portuguese ancestry.
Noxon is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 6.1% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Arabic at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.5% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
With 1.9% of employed workers living in the
Noxon neighborhood active in the military, this neighborhood has
the distinction of having a higher proportion of people in the military
than 96.8% of American neighborhoods. This is a major
shaper of the neighborhood's culture and character.
Notable & Unique: People
Astoundingly, NeighborhoodScout's research reveals that this single
neighborhood has a higher concentration of married couples living here
than 96.4% of all U.S. neighborhoods. Whether they have
school-aged children or not, married couples are the rule in the
Noxon neighborhood. If you are a married couple, you may find many
people here with a similar lifestyle, and perhaps common interests. But if
you are single, you might not find many other singles here.
In addition, the Noxon neighborhood is a great option for families,
as revealed by NeighborhoodScout's research on this neighborhood. The
combination of top public schools, low crime rates, and owner-occupied
single family homes, make this neighborhood among the top
7.4% of family-friendly neighborhoods in the
state of New York. Many other families also live here, making
it easy to socialize and develop a sense of community. In addition,
families here highly value education, as is reflected by the strength of
the local schools.
In addition to being an excellent choice for families with school-aged children, this
neighborhood is also a very good choice for urban sophisticates and active retirees.
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.
More residents of the Noxon neighborhood live here
today that also were living in this same neighborhood five years ago
than is found in 95.8% of U.S. neighborhoods. This neighborhood
is really made up of people who know each other, don't move often, and
have lived here in this very neighborhood for quite a while.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, owner-occupied real estate dominates the Noxon neighborhood. In fact, according to NeighborhoodScout research, the percentage of residential real estate occupied by its owner is higher here than in 98.6% of neighborhoods in America. With a real estate vacancy rate of only 0.0%, the Noxon 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.
