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
Unpopulated, and rural, the Diamond Ridge 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 93.4% of the neighborhoods in America. Diamond Ridge is a neighborhood that is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet.
Many times, such places have amenities that bring locals and visitors to the
waterfront for recreational activities or to check out the scenery.
In some densely populated areas that are less financially well-off, the neighborhood
waterfront can be relatively industrial and less open to recreation.
In addition to being coastal, Diamond Ridge 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.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Diamond Ridge neighborhood has more
Scottish and Swiss ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 6.8% of
this neighborhood's residents have Scottish ancestry and 1.9% have Swiss ancestry.
Diamond Ridge is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.8% 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 97.1% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
In the Diamond Ridge neighborhood, many people's commute means
walking from the bedroom to the home office. NeighborhoodScout's analysis
found that 14.8% of residents worked from home. This may not
seem like a large number, but Scout's research shows that this is a higher
percentage of people working from home than 98.3% of the
neighborhoods in America. Often people who work from home are engaged in
the creative or technological economy, such as is found in areas around Boston,
and in Silicon Valley. Other times, people may be engaged in other businesses
like trading stocks from home, or running a small beauty salon.
Notable & Unique: People
The Diamond Ridge 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
9.6% of family-friendly neighborhoods in the
state of Alaska. 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.
