Vacant apartments or homes are a major fact of life in
Stalvey. The current real estate vacancy rate here is 28.9%.
This is higher than the rate of vacancies in 93.5% of

can be plagued by a protracted vacancy problem. If you live here, you
may find that a number of buildings in your neighborhood are actually empty.
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.

The Neighbors: Income
There are two complementary measures for understanding the income of a
neighborhood's residents: the average and the extremes. While a neighborhood
may be relatively wealthy overall, it is equally important to understand
the rate of people - particularly children - who are living at or below the
federal poverty line, which is extremely low income. Some neighborhoods with
a lower average income may actually have a lower childhood poverty rate than
another with a higher average income, and this helps us understand the
conditions and character of a neighborhood.

line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 66.4%

The Neighbors: Occupations

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

our houses of worship, and much of our culture – our learned behavior - comes
from our ancestors. That is why ancestry and ethnicity can be so interesting
and important to understand: places with concentrations of people of one or
more ancestries often express those shared learned behaviors and this gives
each neighborhood its own culture. Even different neighborhoods in the same
city can have drastically different cultures.
