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: 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 S J St / Redwood St neighborhood have a highly unusual car ownership.
Residents of this neighborhood must really love automobiles. NeighborhoodScout's
Analysis reveals that 53.5% of the households here have four, five,
or more cars. That is more cars per household than in 98.9% of
the neighborhoods in the nation.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
Each year, fewer and fewer Americans make their living as farmers, foresters,
or fishers. But the S J St / Redwood St neighborhood truly stands
out among U.S. neighborhoods. According to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis,
this neighborhood has a greater proportion of farmers, foresters, or fishers
than 98.9% of all American neighborhoods. This is truly a unique
cultural characteristic of this neighborhood.

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 S J St / Redwood St neighborhood, is that an incredible 90.3% 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.
Furthermore, this S J St / Redwood St neighborhood has earned the amazing distinction of having one of the highest rates of detached, single-family homes of any neighborhood in the U.S. With 98.6% of the residential real estate here made up of free-standing single-family homes, there is a greater proportion of single-family homes here than in 97.8% of all neighborhoods in America.
