The way a neighborhood looks and feels when you walk or drive around it, from
its setting, its buildings, and its flavor, can make all the difference. This
neighborhood has some really cool things about the way it looks and feels as
revealed by NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research. This might include anything
from the housing stock to the types of households living here to how people
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Wolf neighborhood has more
Scottish and Swiss ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 10.4% of
this neighborhood's residents have Scottish ancestry and 1.8% have Swiss ancestry.
Wolf is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 0.2% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Yiddish at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 97.7% of the neighborhoods in America.
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 Wolf neighborhood has
a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.
Residents of this neighborhood must really love automobiles. NeighborhoodScout's
Analysis reveals that 32.1% of the households here have four, five,
or more cars. That is more cars per household than in 99.7% of
the neighborhoods in the nation.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
A unique way of commuting is simply not to. And in the Wolf
neighborhood, analysis shows that 20.1% of the residents work
from home, avoiding a commute altogether. This may not seem like a large number,
but it is a higher proportion of people working from home than is found in
99.4% of the neighborhoods in the United States.
One thing NeighborhoodScout's research reveals is that the wealthier and/or
more isolated the neighborhood, the greater the proportion of residents who
choose to work from home.
Notable & Unique: Length of Commute
Regardless of the means by which residents commute, this neighborhood has
a length of commute that is notable.
Long commutes can be brutal. They take time, money, and energy, leaving less
of you for yourself and your family. The residents of the
Wolf neighborhood unfortunately have the distinction of having,
on average, a longer commute than most any neighborhood in America.
11.0% of commuters here travel more than one hour just one-way
to work. That is more than two hours per day. This percentage with two-hour +
round-trip commutes is higher than NeighborhoodScout found in 98.0%
of all neighborhoods in America.

neighborhood is also a very good choice for families with school-aged children.

In fact, this neighborhood has a higher proportion of single-family homes in its real estate stock than 96.2% of all American neighborhoods.
