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
Uncrowded roads, rural America and space to be the individual you are. If you like these characteristics, this neighborhood may fit you. With just 43.04 residents per square mile, Fort Morgan / Cedar Grove is less crowded than 90.6% of all U.S. neighborhoods. Fort Morgan / Cedar Grove 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, Fort Morgan / Cedar Grove 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 Fort Morgan / Cedar Grove 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.
In addition, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Fort Morgan / Cedar Grove neighborhood, NeighborhoodScout has discovered that much of it is vacant. In resort or second-home vacation areas, this naturally occurs because homes and apartments are seasonally occupied, and empty for a portion of the year. In non-vacation or resort areas, however, this can be an indicator of property abandonment or a weak real estate market. The vacancy rate here is 87.6%, which is higher than 99.9% of all U.S. neighborhoods.

In addition, of note is NeighborhoodScout's research finding that the

living in poverty of any neighborhood in the United States. In a nation
where approximately 1 in 4 children are living in poverty, the
Fort Morgan / Cedar Grove community truly stands out from the rest in this regard.

truly successful marriage, but according to NeighborhoodScout's research,

percentage than is found in 95.0% of the neighborhoods
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Fort Morgan / Cedar Grove neighborhood has more
Scots-Irish and Russian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 18.3% of
this neighborhood's residents have Scots-Irish ancestry and 4.7% have Russian ancestry.

employed as sales and service workers (52.9%) than almost any neighborhood
in the country. From fast-food service workers to major sales accounts,
sales and service workers make up the largest proportion of our national
employment picture. But despite that size and importance nationally, this
neighborhood still stands out as unique due to the dominance of people
living here who work in such occupations.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
The freedom of moving to new places versus the comfort of home. How much
and how often people move not only can create diverse and worldly neighborhoods,
but simultaneously it can produce a loss of intimacy with one's surroundings
and a lack of connectedness to one's neighbors. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive
research has identified this neighborhood as unique with regard to the
transience of its populace.
In the Fort Morgan / Cedar Grove neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is

more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
