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: Modes of Transportation
In the N Airport Way / E Park St neighborhood, carpooling is still a popular
way to get to and from work. NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals that
46.4% of commuters carpool here, which is more than in
99.9% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Also, would you like to be able to ride your bike to work? If you are attracted
to the idea of getting a little exercise of the two-wheeled type while
reducing your carbon footprint, bicycling to work might be the answer.
But which neighborhood you live in can make this either impossible, or
alternatively, a great and realistic option. NeighborhoodScout's analysis
revealed that the N Airport Way / E Park St neighborhood is a fantastic
option for bicycle commuters, as 5.5% of commuters here do ride
their bikes to and from work on a daily basis. This is a higher amount
than we found in 97.9% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: People
The N Airport Way / E Park St neighborhood is unique for having just
0.6% of adults here having earned a bachelor's degree.
This is a lower rate of college graduates than NeighborhoodScout found
in 99.0% of America's neighborhoods.
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.
But according to NeighborhoodScout's leading analysis, the
N Airport Way / E Park St neighborhood stands apart from most American neighborhood due
to the proportion of its residents still working in these fields. With 10.9%
of the workforce so employed, this neighborhood has a greater concentration
of such workers than 98.9% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Furthermore, neighborhoodScout's exclusive research identifies the N Airport Way / E Park St
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
40.2% of its working residents employed in such fields, which is a
higher proportion than 96.0% of American neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the N Airport Way / E Park St neighborhood has more
Mexican ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 78.4% of
this neighborhood's residents have Mexican ancestry.
N Airport Way / E Park St is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 63.5% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Spanish at home. This is a higher percentage than 96.3% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
