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
Notable & Unique: People
The types of households in a neighborhood can tell a lot about the character
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: 60.0%. This
is a higher percent living alone than we found in 99.2% of
all U.S. neighborhoods. Often residents who live alone are new arrivals
to an area who are single, and often senior citizens who have lost a spouse.

Native American and Arab ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 6.6% of
this neighborhood's residents have Native American ancestry and 2.7% have Arab ancestry.
N Central Ave / W Osborn Rd is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 2.1% of its residents five years old and above primarily

option for bicycle commuters, as 4.1% of commuters here do ride
their bikes to and from work on a daily basis. This is a higher amount
than we found in 96.5% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
The freedom of moving to new places versus the comfort of home. How much

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.
