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: 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

a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.

Greek and Armenian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 2.4% of
this neighborhood's residents have Greek ancestry and 0.9% have Armenian ancestry.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
It used to be that most Americans lived on the farm, or otherwise made their
living from the land, the forests, or the sea. With global trade and an
economy increasingly based on providing services to one another, fewer
people farm, fish or harvest timber now than at any time in American history.

to the proportion of its residents still working in these fields. With 4.9%
of the workforce so employed, this neighborhood has a greater concentration
of such workers than 96.5% of U.S. neighborhoods.

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, 84.0% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
