Many things matter about a neighborhood, but the first thing most people notice
is the way a neighborhood looks and its particular character. For example, one
might notice whether the buildings all date from a certain time period or whether
shop signs are in multiple languages. This particular neighborhood in Scottsdale,
the E Via Linda / N 92nd St neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.
Notable & Unique: People
One of the most interesting things about the E Via Linda / N 92nd St
neighborhood is that it has a greater concentration of residents who live
alone than most all neighborhoods in America. With 64.3% of the
households here made up of people living alone, NeighborhoodScout's research
reveals that this is a larger proportion of people living alone than in
99.6% of the neighborhoods in America.
In addition, of note, 63.8% of the children in this area
live in poverty; an extraordinarily high percentage compared to other
neighborhoods in the nation. In a nation where approximately one in
four children grows up in poverty, this neighborhood stands out for
the depth of the problem manifested here.
Also, if you are planning to retire in Arizona, this neighborhood
should be on your must-see list. For many reasons, E Via Linda / N 92nd St
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 96.5% of neighborhoods in
AZ. If a Arizona retirement is in your future, this neighborhood
should be one of the places you visit.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the E Via Linda / N 92nd St neighborhood has more
Danish and Austrian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 5.1% of
this neighborhood's residents have Danish ancestry and 1.9% have Austrian ancestry.
E Via Linda / N 92nd St is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.6% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Hindi, which is the official language of India at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 96.4% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the E Via Linda / N 92nd St 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. What you'll sense when you look around or drive the streets of this neighborhood is that many of the residences look the same because of this similarity of age. In fact, 93.7% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
Furthermore, the E Via Linda / N 92nd St 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 92.8% 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.
Also of note, vacant homes and apartments are a significant characteristic of this neighborhood. In fact, with 38.8% of the residential real estate vacant, the E Via Linda / N 92nd St neighborhood claims the distinction of having a higher vacancy rate than 97.0% 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.
Finally, the real estate in the E Via Linda / N 92nd St neighborhood really stands out in the way it looks for a unique reason: this neighborhood has a higher proportion of apartment complexes or high-rise apartments than nearly every neighborhood in the country. Most neighborhoods are a mixture of real estate and housing types, but here it is almost entirely dominated by big apartment buildings and complexes. In fact, 69.5% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 95.7% of American neighborhoods.
