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 Nobel Dr / Genesee Ave neighborhood has more
Iranian and Armenian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 4.8% of
this neighborhood's residents have Iranian ancestry and 3.9% have Armenian ancestry.
Nobel Dr / Genesee Ave is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 4.8% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Persian at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.7% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
The freedom of moving to new places versus the comfort of home. How much
and how often people move not only can create diverse and worldly neighborhoods,
but simultaneously it can produce a loss of intimacy with one's surroundings
and a lack of connectedness to one's neighbors. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive
research has identified this neighborhood as unique with regard to the
transience of its populace.
In the Nobel Dr / Genesee Ave neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 98.5% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
Notable & Unique: People
NeighborhoodScout's analysis shows that the Nobel Dr / Genesee Ave
neighborhood has a greater concentration of residents currently enrolled
in college than 98.2% of the neighborhoods in the U.S. With
27.5% of the population here attending college, this is very
much a college-focused neighborhood.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
The Nobel Dr / Genesee Ave neighborhood stands out nationally for having
a greater proportion of its residents active in the military than
96.4% of other U.S. neighborhoods. If you come here, you
will notice military people active in their jobs, going to and from work,
and in plain clothes out and about the neighborhood.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
If you like crowded places, then you will probably enjoy the Nobel Dr / Genesee Ave neighborhood. According to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive data analysis, this neighborhood is more densely populated than 96.1% of neighborhoods in the U.S., with 24,078 people per square mile living here.
In addition, one of the really unique and interesting things about the look and setting of the Nobel Dr / Genesee Ave neighborhood is that it is almost entirely dominated by large apartment buildings, such as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments. 97.3% of the residential real estate here is classified as such. This puts this neighborhood on the map as having a higher proportion of large apartment buildings than 99.6% of all neighborhoods in America.
Furthermore, the Nobel Dr / Genesee Ave neighborhood is very unique in that it has one of the highest proportions of one, two, or no bedroom real estate of any neighborhood in America. Most neighborhoods have a mixture of home or apartment sizes from small to large, but here the concentration of studios and other small living spaces is at near-record heights. With 95.5% of the real estate here of this small size, this most assuredly is a notable feature that makes this neighborhood unique, along with just a handful of other neighborhoods in the U.S. that share this characteristic.
Also of note, 85.4% of the real estate in the Nobel Dr / Genesee Ave neighborhood is occupied by renters, which is nearly the highest rate of renter occupancy of any neighborhood in America.
