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.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Glendale neighborhood has more
English ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 17.8% of
this neighborhood's residents have English ancestry.
Glendale is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 2.2% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak German at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 97.8% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: People
One of the really interesting characteristics about the
Glendale neighborhood is that, according to NeighborhoodScout's
exclusive research, it is an excellent choice in which to reside for
college students. Due to its popularity among college students who
already choose to live here, its walkability, and its above average
safety from crime, the neighborhood is ideal for prospective or
already-enrolled college students. Between semesters and during
school breaks, you'll notice that the excitement here fluctuates with
the college seasons. Despite the excitement however, parents of college-age
children can rest easy knowing that this
neighborhood has an above average safety rating. For each of these
reasons, the neighborhood is rated among the
top 3.2% of college-friendly places to live in
the state of South Carolina.
In addition to being an excellent choice for college students, this
neighborhood is also a very good choice for active retirees.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, this neighborhood has the distinction of having one of the lowest real estate vacancy rates of any neighborhood in America. With just 0.0% of the real estate vacant, this indicates an exceptionally strong demand for real estate in the Glendale neighborhood, and/or an issue with creating enough supply for the demand. This could have the effect of increasing real estate prices, increasing supply to meet demand, or both.
The Neighbors: Income
There are two complimentary 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.

a higher income than 44.0% of the neighborhoods in America.

line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 52.5%
of U.S. neighborhoods.
The Neighbors: Occupations
The old saying "you are what you eat" is true. But it is also true that you

(18.1%), and 14.7% in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations.
The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry
Culture is the shared learned behavior of peoples. Undeniably, different ethnicities
and ancestries have different cultural traditions, and as a result, neighborhoods
with concentrations of residents of one or another ethnicities or ancestries
will express those cultures. It is what makes the North End in Boston so fun
to visit for the Italian restaurants, bakeries, culture, and charm, and similarly,
why people enjoy visiting Chinatown in San Francisco.

just a few minutes, while others are located such that most residents have a
