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.

Excelsior Rd / Farm Rd is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 10.6% of its residents five years old and above primarily

the distinction of having a higher proportion of people in the military

shaper of the neighborhood's culture and character.
Furthermore, the government often provides some of the more stable jobs in the economy.

also be a major employer. What NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed, is
that the Excelsior Rd / Farm Rd neighborhood in particular stands out
when compared nationally for the proportion of its working residents who
are employed by the government. At 13.1% of its workforce, this
neighborhood has a greater concentration of government workers than
95.6% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the Excelsior Rd / Farm Rd stands out as rather unique in having nearly all of its residential real estate built in one time period, namely between 1970 and 1999, generally considered to be established, but not old housing. What you'll sense when you look around or drive the streets of this neighborhood is that many of the residences look the same because of this similarity of age. In fact, 93.6% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
