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: Occupations
The government often provides some of the more stable jobs in the economy.
From local, to state, to federal government workers, the government can
also be a major employer. What NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed, is
that the Bisbee City Center neighborhood in particular stands out
when compared nationally for the proportion of its working residents who
are employed by the government. At 21.0% of its workforce, this
neighborhood has a greater concentration of government workers than
99.1% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: People
If you are planning to retire in Arizona, this neighborhood
should be on your must-see list. For many reasons, Bisbee City Center
may be considered a retiree's dream neighborhood. According to NeighborhoodScout's
exclusive analysis and metrics, it's peaceful and quiet, has above
average safety from crime compared to other neighborhoods in Arizona,
while also offering a diverse range of housing options. This, along with
the vibrant mix of very educated seniors and other age groups who choose
to live here, makes the neighborhood more
retiree-friendly than 99.0% of neighborhoods in
AZ. If a Arizona retirement is in your future, this neighborhood
should be one of the places you visit.
In addition to being an excellent choice for active retirees, this
neighborhood is also a very good choice for college students.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Bisbee City Center neighborhood has more
British and English ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 1.9% of
this neighborhood's residents have British ancestry and 19.7% have English ancestry.
Bisbee City Center is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 0.5% 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 97.1% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Bisbee City Center 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 32.0%, which is higher than 95.0% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Furthermore, do you watch 'This Old House' on Public Television? Do you love the idea of fixing up a Colonial or Victorian era home, complete with the charm of yesteryear? Do you like to stroll or drive streets lined with gracious older residences? If you found yourself nodding yes to any of these questions, you are going to be interested in this unique neighborhood. The Bisbee City Center neighborhood stands out on a national scale for the sheer concentration of historic residences it contains: 78.0% of the residential real estate here was built from 1939 or earlier, some much earlier. This is a greater concentration of historic homes than 99.2% of the neighborhoods in the United States.
