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: People
Of note is NeighborhoodScout's research finding that the
Glencove neighborhood has some of the lowest rates of children
living in poverty of any neighborhood in the United States. In a nation
where approximately 1 in 4 children are living in poverty, the
Glencove community truly stands out from the rest in this regard.
In addition, if you are an executive or professional seeking a neighborhood affording
an executive lifestyle, or just wanting to find where other executives
live in the area, the Glencove neighborhood should be
on your list. It has an enviable mix of spacious homes, relatively stable
real estate values, and residents that include a number of wealthy
executives, managers, and professionals. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive
analysis places it as one of the top 11.4% executive lifestyle
neighborhoods in the state of California.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
If you like to ride a ferry to work, this neighborhood may be for you.
NeighborhoodScout's research revealed that 2.7% of the Glencove
neighborhood's commuters ride a ferry to and from work each day, which is more than we found in
99.7% of America's neighborhoods.
Also, our research shows that more people carpool to work here in the
Glencove (22.6%) than in 97.0% of the
neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Glencove neighborhood has more
Asian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 25.9% of
this neighborhood's residents have Asian ancestry.
Glencove is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 8.6% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Tagalog, which is the first language of the Philippine region, at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.3% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the Glencove stands out as rather unique in having nearly all of its residential real estate built in one time period, namely between 1970 and 1999, generally considered to be established, but not old housing. 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, 87.0% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
Furthermore, with a real estate vacancy rate of only 0.9%, the Glencove neighborhood has a lower vacancy rate than 95.6% of U.S. neighborhoods, a very elite group. Such a low vacancy rate may indicate very strong real estate demand in the neighborhood combined with some impediments to increasing supply, such as zoning or existing density of development, among other potential reasons.
