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 May neighborhood has more
Romanian and Armenian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 5.9% of
this neighborhood's residents have Romanian ancestry and 1.3% have Armenian ancestry.
May is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.4% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak German at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 95.1% 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 May neighborhood has
a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.
Residents of this neighborhood must really love automobiles. NeighborhoodScout's
Analysis reveals that 29.8% 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: Occupations
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research identifies the May
neighborhood as having one of the highest concentrations of people employed
in manufacturing or as laborers of any neighborhood in America. In fact,
despite the loss of manufacturing jobs nationally, this neighborhood has
42.8% of its working residents employed in such fields, which is a
higher proportion than 97.5% of American neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Length of Commute
Whether walking, biking, riding, or driving, the length of one's commute
is an important factor for one's quality of life. The May
neighborhood stands out for its commute length, according to NeighborhoodScout's
Long commutes can be brutal. They take time, money, and energy, leaving less
of you for yourself and your family. The residents of the
May neighborhood unfortunately have the distinction of having,
on average, a longer commute than most any neighborhood in America.
9.0% 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 96.4%
of all neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, the real estate in this neighborhood consists of more mobile homes than 98.0% of all neighborhoods in America, with 39.9% of the occupied housing here being classified as mobile homes. So if you are looking for a mobile home, or you like the look and feel of mobile home parks, this neighborhood might have the setting you desire.
Furthermore, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the May 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, 82.8% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
