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
This neighborhood has wide open spaces, few people, and lots of space to stretch out. If you like locations that fit that description, you may like this neighborhood. Based on NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis, with only 0.65 people per square mile living here, this neighborhood is less crowded than 99.6% of America. Do you like a coastal setting? If so, this neighborhood may be to your liking.
The Loring 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, Loring 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.
One of the notable things about Loring is that it is one of the quietest neighborhoods in America, according to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis and quantitative rating of quietness. When you are here, you will find it to be very quiet. If quiet and peaceful are your cup of tea, you may have found a great place for you.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
In the Loring neighborhood, 0.7% of people ride
a ferry to work each day. This is a very high percentage compared to most places.
In fact, NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals that this is a higher level of ferry
ridership than in 99.0% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Loring neighborhood has more
Native American and Norwegian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 8.2% of
this neighborhood's residents have Native American ancestry and 7.8% have Norwegian ancestry.
Loring is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 0.6% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Native American languages at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 97.5% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
The Loring neighborhood has a greater proportion of
government workers living in it than 97.9% of the neighborhoods
in America, according to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis. This is
a unique feature of this neighborhood, and one that shapes its character.
Furthermore, with 1.5% of employed workers living in the
Loring neighborhood active in the military, this neighborhood has
the distinction of having a higher proportion of people in the military
than 96.1% of American neighborhoods. This is a major
shaper of the neighborhood's culture and character.
