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: Real Estate
Do you like a coastal setting? If so, this neighborhood may be to your liking.
The Saybrook U / Battery St neighborhood is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet.
Often such coastal places have amenities and recreational activities on the waterfront
that are attractive to residents and visitors alike.
In addition to being coastal, Saybrook U / Battery St is a very nautical neighborhood,
meaning that it is somewhat historic, walkable, densely populated and
on the water. This gives the neighborhood a very nautical feel,
with some seaside and shipping feel, which some may really enjoy the sights
and sounds of.
In addition, one of the really unique and interesting things about the look and setting of the Saybrook U / Battery St neighborhood is that it is almost entirely dominated by large apartment buildings, such as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments. 95.2% 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 99.3% of all neighborhoods in America.
Furthermore, the Saybrook U / Battery St 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 92.5% 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.
Notable & Unique: People
If you come to know the people here, you will recognize that you're
in the company of one of the wealthiest communities in the nation. In
fact, a mere 5.0% of America's neighborhoods are wealthier than the
Saybrook U / Battery St neighborhood. Real estate here is exceedingly
well-maintained, and similarly, tends to maintain its value over time.
The cars driven are mostly luxury brands like Mercedes, Audi, BMW, and
Lexus. If the public schools aren't up to snuff, the residents of this
neighborhood preferentially send their children to private preparatory
schools. Vacation to Disney? Yes, but equally popular are summers in Europe.
As one would expect in a considerably wealthy neighborhood such as this,
Saybrook U / Battery St also has one of the lowest ratings of child
poverty in the nation.
In addition, the types of households in a neighborhood can tell a lot about the character
and lifestyle of those living here. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis
reveals that this neighborhood, above nearly every neighborhood in America,
has a greater percentage of its residents living alone: 55.0%. This
is a higher percent living alone than we found in 98.5% of
all U.S. neighborhoods. Often residents who live alone are new arrivals
to an area who are single, and often senior citizens who have lost a spouse.
Also, do you like to read, write, and learn? Are you curious about the world? If
so, this neighborhood may be a good fit for you. NeighborhoodScout's research
revealed that a full 75.6% of the adults living in the
Saybrook U / Battery St neighborhood have earned at least a bachelor's
degree. This is a higher rate than NeighborhoodScout found in 98.0%
of U.S. neighborhoods. In this way, this neighborhood truly stands out.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
More people in Saybrook U / Battery St choose to walk to work each day
(41.0%) than almost any neighborhood in America. If you are
attracted to the idea of being able to walk to work, this neighborhood
could be a good choice.
Notable & Unique: Diversity

Austrian and Russian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 1.8% of
this neighborhood's residents have Austrian ancestry and 5.1% have Russian ancestry.
Saybrook U / Battery St is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 4.8% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak French at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.2% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
The Saybrook U / Battery St neighborhood has a higher proportion of
its residents employed as executives, managers and professionals than
97.2% of the neighborhoods in American. In fact, 67.6%
of the employed people here make a living as an executive, a manager, or
other professional. With such a high concentration, this truly shapes
the character of this neighborhood, and to a large degree defines what
this neighborhood is about.
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 Saybrook U / Battery St neighborhood has
a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.
25.5% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at
all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
95.9% of U.S. neighborhoods.
