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: Real Estate
Eureka City Center is a neighborhood that is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet.
Many times, such places have amenities that bring locals and visitors to the
waterfront for recreational activities or to check out the scenery.
In some densely populated areas that are less financially well-off, the neighborhood
waterfront can be relatively industrial and less open to recreation.
In addition to being coastal, Eureka City Center is a very nautical neighborhood,
meaning that it is somewhat historic, walkable, densely populated and
on the water. This gives the neighborhood a very nautical feel,
with some seaside and shipping feel, which some may really enjoy the sights
and sounds of.
Notable & Unique: People
Of particular note, 9.2% of the people in the City Center
neighborhood currently reside in a correction facility, held due to

Notable & Unique: Diversity

Eureka City Center is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 0.6% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Native American languages at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 97.6% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
Would you like to be able to ride your bike to work? If you are attracted
to the idea of getting a little exercise of the two-wheeled type while
reducing your carbon footprint, bicycling to work might be the answer.
But which neighborhood you live in can make this either impossible, or
alternatively, a great and realistic option. NeighborhoodScout's analysis

option for bicycle commuters, as 5.9% of commuters here do ride
their bikes to and from work on a daily basis. This is a higher amount
than we found in 98.2% of the neighborhoods in America.

to put on your walking shoes if you move here!
Notable & Unique: Occupations

employed as sales and service workers (53.9%) than almost any neighborhood

neighborhood still stands out as unique due to the dominance of people
