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: People
Of note, 70.1% of the children in this area
live in poverty; an extraordinarily high percentage compared to other
neighborhoods in the nation. In a nation where approximately one in
four children grows up in poverty, this neighborhood stands out for
the depth of the problem manifested here.
In addition, of particular note, 5.8% of the people in the City Center
neighborhood currently reside in a correction facility, held due to
punishment for a crime.
Also, if you're nearing retirement age, or in retirement, the Greensboro
City Center neighborhood is an excellent choice for you to consider
for top-quality retirement living. This neighborhood is rated by
NeighborhoodScout as among the top 7.0% of retiree-friendly
neighborhoods in Alabama, combining peace and quiet, safety from
crime, and offering diverse housing options from which retirees can

of the residents here are college educated seniors, mixed with other
age groups. For these and other reasons, NeighborhoodScout identifies
this neighborhood as a top-notch place to consider if you are thinking
of or planning to retire in Alabama.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
It used to be that most Americans lived on the farm, or otherwise made their
living from the land, the forests, or the sea. With global trade and an
economy increasingly based on providing services to one another, fewer
people farm, fish or harvest timber now than at any time in American history.
But according to NeighborhoodScout's leading analysis, the Greensboro
City Center neighborhood stands apart from most American neighborhood due
to the proportion of its residents still working in these fields. With 6.6%
of the workforce so employed, this neighborhood has a greater concentration
of such workers than 97.7% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Greensboro City Center neighborhood has more
Canadian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 1.2% of
this neighborhood's residents have Canadian ancestry.
