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
Most American households own a car or other vehicle. Many own two cars
or perhaps three. In the United States, it is useful to have an automobile
not only for commuting, but also for shopping and getting to other services
one needs. But NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed that households in
the E Janss Rd / Montgomery Rd neighborhood have a highly unusual car ownership.
Residents of this neighborhood must really love automobiles. NeighborhoodScout's
Analysis reveals that 41.3% of the households here have four, five,
or more cars. That is more cars per household than in 98.8% of
the neighborhoods in the nation.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the E Janss Rd / Montgomery Rd neighborhood has more
Dutch and Lithuanian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 6.3% of
this neighborhood's residents have Dutch ancestry and 1.9% have Lithuanian ancestry.
E Janss Rd / Montgomery Rd is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 3.5% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Urdu, which is the national language of Pakistan, at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.3% 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 3.8% of residents in
the E Janss Rd / Montgomery Rd neighborhood commuting on a bicycle to and
from work daily, this neighborhood has more bicycle commuters than
96.0% of all neighborhoods in the U.S., according to
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis.
Notable & Unique: People
If you're looking for a great spot to raise a family, then look no
further than the E Janss Rd / Montgomery Rd neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's
analysis found that the combination of good quality public schools,
above-average safety from crime, and a high rate of home ownership in
predominantly single-family homes, help make this neighborhood
among the top 10.8% of family-friendly neighborhoods
across the state of California. In addition, there are a high proportion
of other families with school-aged children living here, making it easy
for parents and their children to socialize and develop a sense of community
support. In addition, families here highly value education, as is reflected
by the strength of the local schools, in part due to the educational
attainment of the parents here, who vote in support of the public schools.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, most neighborhoods have a mixture of ages of homes in them, from new to old, but this neighborhood stands out due to its concentration of residential real estate built in one time frame: from 1940 through 1969, generally considered older, well-established homes. This was a busy time in America for home construction. After the end of World War II, as GIs came home, bought newly built homes on the edges of cities with the help of the GI Bill, and began their families. This housing era generally coincides with the 'Baby Boom' generation (1945 - 1964), and many baby boomers grew up in homes built in this era. But what is so interesting about the E Janss Rd / Montgomery Rd neighborhood, is that an incredible 89.4% of the homes here were built in this era. So when you walk its streets or drive through, this neighborhood has a look and feel that harkens to that era in American life, a very important slice of Americana.
Furthermore, one way that the E Janss Rd / Montgomery Rd neighborhood really stands out, is that it has more large 4, 5, or additional bedroom homes and real estate than 95.0% of the neighborhoods in America. When you walk or drive around this neighborhood, you'll instantly notice the size of the homes here which definitely makes a strong visual statement.
