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: Real Estate
Uncrowded roads, rural America and space to be the individual you are. If you like these characteristics, this neighborhood may fit you. With just 28.17 residents per square mile, Greenridge is less crowded than 93.2% of all U.S. neighborhoods. Do you like a coastal setting? If so, this neighborhood may be to your liking.
The Greenridge neighborhood is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet.
Often such coastal places have amenities and recreational activities on the waterfront
that are attractive to residents and visitors alike.
In addition to being coastal, Greenridge is a very nautical neighborhood,
meaning that it is somewhat historic, walkable, densely populated and
on the water. This gives the neighborhood a very nautical feel,
with some seaside and shipping feel, which some may really enjoy the sights
and sounds of.
In addition, vacant homes and apartments are a significant characteristic of this neighborhood. In fact, with 36.3% of the residential real estate vacant, the Greenridge neighborhood claims the distinction of having a higher vacancy rate than 96.4% of the neighborhoods in America. This can either be because much of the property is seasonally occupied, like in many vacation areas, or that much of the real estate is more permanently abandoned.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
The freedom of moving to new places versus the comfort of home. How much
and how often people move not only can create diverse and worldly neighborhoods,
but simultaneously it can produce a loss of intimacy with one's surroundings
and a lack of connectedness to one's neighbors. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive
research has identified this neighborhood as unique with regard to the
transience of its populace.
More residents of the Greenridge neighborhood live here
today that also were living in this same neighborhood five years ago
than is found in 100.0% 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: Modes of Transportation
Our research reveals that 100.0% of commuters who live in the
Greenridge neighborhood get to work each day by driving
alone in their automobiles, which is a higher proportion than
99.9% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Also, a unique way of commuting is simply not to. And in the Greenridge
neighborhood, analysis shows that 11.4% of the residents work
from home, avoiding a commute altogether. This may not seem like a large number,
but it is a higher proportion of people working from home than is found in
95.5% of the neighborhoods in the United States.
One thing NeighborhoodScout's research reveals is that the wealthier and/or
more isolated the neighborhood, the greater the proportion of residents who
choose to work from home.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Greenridge neighborhood has more
Swedish and Mexican ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 18.4% of
this neighborhood's residents have Swedish ancestry and 63.6% have Mexican ancestry.
Notable & Unique: People
Priests and therapists would like to think they know the secrets to a
truly successful marriage, but according to NeighborhoodScout's research,
the folks of the Greenridge neighborhood may actually hold
the key. 100.0% of its residents are married, which is a higher
percentage than is found in 99.9% of the neighborhoods
In addition, 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 0.1% of America's neighborhoods are wealthier than the
Greenridge 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.
As one would expect in a considerably wealthy neighborhood such as this,
Greenridge also has one of the lowest ratings of child
poverty in the nation.
Also, the rate of college educated adults in the Greenridge neighborhood
is a unique characteristic of the neighborhood. 88.0% 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
99.8% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Finally, if you're looking for a great spot to raise a family, then look no
further than the Greenridge neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's
analysis found that the combination of good quality public schools,
above-average safety from crime, and a high rate of home ownership in
predominantly single-family homes, help make this neighborhood
among the top 10.9% of family-friendly neighborhoods
across the state of New York. In addition, there are a high proportion
of other families with school-aged children living here, making it easy
for parents and their children to socialize and develop a sense of community
support. In addition, families here highly value education, as is reflected
by the strength of the local schools, in part due to the educational
attainment of the parents here, who vote in support of the public 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.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
The Greenridge neighborhood has a higher proportion of
its residents employed as executives, managers and professionals than
99.6% of the neighborhoods in American. In fact, 78.0%
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.
