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: Migration / Stability
The freedom of moving to new places versus the comfort of home. How much
and how often people move not only can create diverse and worldly neighborhoods,
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.
In the N Kolb Rd / E Speedway Blvd neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 97.5% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
If your dream is to be able to ride your bike to work each day, look no
further than this unique neighborhood. With 4.8% of residents in
the N Kolb Rd / E Speedway Blvd neighborhood commuting on a bicycle to and
from work daily, this neighborhood has more bicycle commuters than
97.3% of all neighborhoods in the U.S., according to
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the N Kolb Rd / E Speedway Blvd neighborhood has more
Arab ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 3.3% of
this neighborhood's residents have Arab ancestry.
N Kolb Rd / E Speedway Blvd is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 2.1% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Greek at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.2% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: People
One of the most interesting things about the N Kolb Rd / E Speedway Blvd
neighborhood is that it has a greater concentration of residents who live
alone than most all neighborhoods in America. With 49.6% 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
96.8% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
With 1.2% of employed workers living in the
N Kolb Rd / E Speedway Blvd neighborhood active in the military, this neighborhood has
the distinction of having a higher proportion of people in the military
than 95.3% of American neighborhoods. This is a major
shaper of the neighborhood's culture and character.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, many people dream of living along a street lined with row houses or other attached homes. Such places do often have an abundance of charm. If you are one of these people, the N Kolb Rd / E Speedway Blvd neighborhood could be your paradise. With 28.8% of the homes and real estate here classified as rowhouses or other attached homes, this neighborhood brims with opportunity to find the right place for you. Only 3.6% of U.S. neighborhoods have more row houses than this neighborhood, making it one of the most interesting things about this special neighborhood.
Furthermore, the N Kolb Rd / E Speedway Blvd 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 83.4% 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.
