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

a while because they contain a unique mix of occupational or cultural groups.
This neighborhood is very unique in some important ways, according to

option for bicycle commuters, as 3.3% of commuters here do ride
their bikes to and from work on a daily basis. This is a higher amount
than we found in 95.1% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, the Greenfield Park neighborhood stands out for having the majority of its residential real estate made up of mobile homes. In fact, 81.9% of the occupied real estate here are mobile homes, which is a greater proportion than is found in 99.9% of the neighborhoods in the U.S. If you like mobile homes, this might be a great neighborhood in which to look for real estate.
Furthermore, real estate in the Greenfield Park neighborhood is almost exclusively owner-occupied. NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals that this neighborhood has a higher rate of owner-occupied housing than is found in 96.4% of U.S. neighborhoods. If you are seeking to rent, this neighborhood may not have many options, but high rates of ownership often indicate stability in a neighborhood. Vacant homes and apartments are a significant characteristic of this neighborhood. In fact, with 53.5% of the residential real estate vacant, the Greenfield Park neighborhood claims the distinction of having a higher vacancy rate than 98.9% of the neighborhoods in America. This can either be because much of the property is seasonally occupied, like in many vacation areas, or that much of the real estate is more permanently abandoned.
Also of note, the Greenfield Park 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 93.8% 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.
