The way a neighborhood looks and feels when you walk or drive around it, from
its setting, its buildings, and its flavor, can make all the difference. This
neighborhood has some really cool things about the way it looks and feels as
revealed by NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research. This might include anything
from the housing stock to the types of households living here to how people

and lifestyle of those living here. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis
reveals that this neighborhood, above nearly every neighborhood in America,
has a greater percentage of its residents living alone: 55.7%. This
is a higher percent living alone than we found in 98.6% of

to an area who are single, and often senior citizens who have lost a spouse.

Carlyle Way E / Carlyle Way neighborhood is that, according to NeighborhoodScout's

college students. Due to its popularity among college students who

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

reasons, the neighborhood is rated among the

the state of Alabama.

much a college-focused neighborhood.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
The freedom of moving to new places versus the comfort of home. How much

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 Carlyle Way E / Carlyle Way neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is

Carlyle Way E / Carlyle Way is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 6.5% of its residents five years old and above primarily

than 99.7% of the neighborhoods in America.

Furthermore, the Carlyle Way E / Carlyle Way neighborhood is very unique in that it has one of the highest proportions of one, two, or no bedroom real estate of any neighborhood in America. Most neighborhoods have a mixture of home or apartment sizes from small to large, but here the concentration of studios and other small living spaces is at near-record heights. With 89.2% of the real estate here of this small size, this most assuredly is a notable feature that makes this neighborhood unique, along with just a handful of other neighborhoods in the U.S. that share this characteristic.

In fact, 81.8% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 97.5% of American neighborhoods.
Finally, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the Carlyle Way E / Carlyle Way stands out as rather unique in having nearly all of its residential real estate built in one time period, namely between 1970 and 1999, generally considered to be established, but not old housing.

In fact, 83.9% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
