neighborhood has some really cool things about the way it looks and feels as

from the housing stock to the types of households living here to how people
Notable & Unique: Car Ownership
We Americans love our cars. Not only are they a necessity for most Americans
due to the shape of our neighborhoods and the distances between where we
live, work, shop, and go to school, but we also fancy them. As a result,
most households in America have one, two, or three cars. But NeighborhoodScout's
exclusive analysis shows that the Flair Dr / Telstar Ave neighborhood has
a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.

or more cars. That is more cars per household than in 99.7% of
the neighborhoods in the nation.

Asian ancestry people living in it than nearly

this neighborhood's residents have Asian ancestry.

speak Chinese at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.6% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
Some neighborhoods have more internal cohesiveness than others. While other

of the people in a place, but how long people have been together in that
neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's research has revealed some interesting
things about the rootedness of people in the Flair Dr / Telstar Ave

97.3% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, most neighborhoods have a mixture of ages of homes in them, from new to old, but this neighborhood stands out due to its concentration of residential real estate built in one time frame: from 1940 through 1969, generally considered older, well-established homes. This was a busy time in America for home construction. After the end of World War II, as GIs came home, bought newly built homes on the edges of cities with the help of the GI Bill, and began their families. This housing era generally coincides with the 'Baby Boom' generation (1945 - 1964), and many baby boomers grew up in homes built in this era. But what is so interesting about the Flair Dr / Telstar Ave neighborhood, is that an incredible 81.6% of the homes here were built in this era. So when you walk its streets or drive through, this neighborhood has a look and feel that harkens to that era in American life, a very important slice of Americana.
