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: Diversity
Did you know that the Bootjack neighborhood has more
Portuguese and Native American ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 3.2% of
this neighborhood's residents have Portuguese ancestry and 2.5% have Native American ancestry.
Bootjack is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 0.4% 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 96.3% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
The Bootjack neighborhood has a greater proportion of
government workers living in it than 95.8% of the neighborhoods
in America, according to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis. This is
a unique feature of this neighborhood, and one that shapes its character.
Furthermore, there are more people living in the Bootjack neighborhood
employed as sales and service workers (57.3%) than almost any neighborhood
in the country. From fast-food service workers to major sales accounts,
sales and service workers make up the largest proportion of our national
employment picture. But despite that size and importance nationally, this
neighborhood still stands out as unique due to the dominance of people
living here who work in such occupations.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
One of the notable things about Bootjack is that it is one of the quietest neighborhoods in America, according to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis and quantitative rating of quietness. When you are here, you will find it to be very quiet. If quiet and peaceful are your cup of tea, you may have found a great place for you.
Notable & Unique: Car Ownership
Most American households own a car or other vehicle. Many own two cars
or perhaps three. In the United States, it is useful to have an automobile
not only for commuting, but also for shopping and getting to other services
one needs. But NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed that households in
the Bootjack neighborhood have a highly unusual car ownership.
Residents of this neighborhood must really love automobiles. NeighborhoodScout's
Analysis reveals that 31.5% of the households here have four, five,
or more cars. That is more cars per household than in 95.8% of
the neighborhoods in the nation.
Notable & Unique: People
If you're nearing retirement age, or in retirement, the
Bootjack neighborhood is an excellent choice for you to consider
for top-quality retirement living. This neighborhood is rated by
NeighborhoodScout as among the top 7.0% of retiree-friendly
neighborhoods in California, combining peace and quiet, safety from
crime, and offering diverse housing options from which retirees can
choose. Maybe it's because of these amenities that a large proportion
of the residents here are college educated seniors, mixed with other
age groups. For these and other reasons, NeighborhoodScout identifies
this neighborhood as a top-notch place to consider if you are thinking
of or planning to retire in California.
