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 American River Dr / University Ave neighborhood has more
Greek and Russian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 4.4% of
this neighborhood's residents have Greek ancestry and 5.0% have Russian ancestry.
American River Dr / University Ave is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.7% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Russian at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 96.0% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
If your dream is to be able to ride your bike to work each day, look no
further than this unique neighborhood. With 4.8% of residents in
the American River Dr / University Ave neighborhood commuting on a bicycle to and
from work daily, this neighborhood has more bicycle commuters than
97.3% of all neighborhoods in the U.S., according to
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis.
Also, a unique way of commuting is simply not to. And in the American River Dr / University Ave
neighborhood, analysis shows that 11.1% 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
95.1% 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: People
If knowledge is power, then imagine the cumulative power of one neighborhood
where many of the adults have earned an advanced degree, such as a Masters,
law degree, medical degree, or even a Ph.D. This is certainly the case in
the American River Dr / University Ave neighborhood, where 33.8% have
earned an advanced degree. Compare that to the average neighborhood in
America, where just 8.4% of adults have completed a post-graduate degree,
and you can see why this neighborhood is a stand out. In fact, this neighborhood
has a higher rate of adults with an advanced degree than 96.5%
of the neighborhoods in America.
In addition, if you're nearing retirement age, or in retirement, the
American River Dr / University Ave neighborhood is an excellent choice for you to consider
for top-quality retirement living. This neighborhood is rated by
NeighborhoodScout as among the top 7.7% of retiree-friendly
neighborhoods in California, combining peace and quiet, safety from
crime, and offering diverse housing options from which retirees can

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.
In addition to being an excellent choice for active retirees, this
neighborhood is also a very good choice for highly educated executives.
