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 Cupertino,
the Miller Ave / Bollinger Rd neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Miller Ave / Bollinger Rd neighborhood has more
Asian and Canadian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 58.4% of
this neighborhood's residents have Asian ancestry and 1.4% have Canadian ancestry.
Miller Ave / Bollinger Rd is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 11.8% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Korean at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.7% of the neighborhoods in America.
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.
What is interesting to note, is that the Miller Ave / Bollinger Rd
neighborhood has a greater percentage of residents born in another country
(52.5%) than are found in 98.3% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: People

in this neighborhood there is a dramatic difference. NeighborhoodScout's
