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: Migration / Stability
Some neighborhoods have more internal cohesiveness than others. While other
neighborhoods feel like a collection of strangers who just happen to live
near each other. Sometimes this comes down to not only the personalities
of the people in a place, but how long people have been together in that
neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's research has revealed some interesting
things about the rootedness of people in the Eastwick
More residents of the Eastwick 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: People
Of note is NeighborhoodScout's research finding that the
Eastwick neighborhood has some of the lowest rates of children
living in poverty of any neighborhood in the United States. In a nation
where approximately 1 in 4 children are living in poverty, the
Eastwick community truly stands out from the rest in this regard.
In addition, the types of households in a neighborhood can tell a lot about the character
and lifestyle of those living here. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis
reveals that this neighborhood, above nearly every neighborhood in America,
has a greater percentage of its residents living alone: 100.0%. This
is a higher percent living alone than we found in 99.9% of
all U.S. neighborhoods. Often residents who live alone are new arrivals
to an area who are single, and often senior citizens who have lost a spouse.
Also, the Eastwick neighborhood is unique for having just
0.0% of adults here having earned a bachelor's degree.
This is a lower rate of college graduates than NeighborhoodScout found
in 99.5% of America's neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Diversity

Italian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 100.0% of
this neighborhood's residents have Italian ancestry.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
Unpopulated, and rural, the Eastwick neighborhood is one of the least crowded neighborhoods in all of America. If you like open space, no traffic, and lots of room, this neighborhood may be just what you are looking for. According to NeighborhoodScout's leading research, this neighborhood is less densely populated than 98.5% of the neighborhoods in America.
In addition, renter-occupied real estate is dominant in the Eastwick neighborhood. The percentage of rental real estate here, according to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, is 100.0%, which is higher than 99.4% of the neighborhoods in America. If you were to buy and live in the property you bought here, you would be almost alone in doing so. With a real estate vacancy rate of only 0.0%, the Eastwick 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.
Furthermore, three-deckers, duplexes, old Victorian homes cut up into apartments. Independent stores on the corner selling pizza. These are some of the hallmarks of neighborhoods with lots of small 2, 3, and 4 unit apartment buildings. The Eastwick neighborhood really stands out in this regard, however, as it is dominated by such small apartment buildings more than nearly any other neighborhood in America. This is a stunning visual and lifestyle example of this type of neighborhood. In fact, 100.0% of the real estate here are small 2, 3, or 4 unit apartment buildings, which is a higher proportion than found in 99.9% of America's neighborhoods.
Also of note, the Eastwick neighborhood is very unique in that it has one of the highest proportions of one, two, or no bedroom real estate of any neighborhood in America. Most neighborhoods have a mixture of home or apartment sizes from small to large, but here the concentration of studios and other small living spaces is at near-record heights. With 100.0% of the real estate here of this small size, this most assuredly is a notable feature that makes this neighborhood unique, along with just a handful of other neighborhoods in the U.S. that share this characteristic.
Finally, if you find historic homes and neighborhoods attractive, you love the details, the history, and the charm, then you are sure to be interested in this neighborhood. With 100.0% of the residential real estate in the Eastwick neighborhood built no later than 1939, and some built considerably earlier, this neighborhood has a greater concentration of historic residences than 99.9% of all neighborhoods in America. In this regard, this neighborhood truly stands out as special.
