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
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 4.1% of America's neighborhoods are wealthier than the
N 63rd St / Niwot Rd 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,
N 63rd St / Niwot Rd also has one of the lowest ratings of child
poverty in the nation.
In addition, the rate of college educated adults in the N 63rd St / Niwot Rd neighborhood
is a unique characteristic of the neighborhood. 72.4% of
adults here have received at least a 4-year bachelor's degree, compared to
the average neighborhood in America, which has 22.6% of the adults with a
bachelor's degree. The rate here is higher than NeighborhoodScout found in
97.2% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Also, a majority of the adults in the N 63rd St / Niwot Rd neighborhood
are wealthy and educated executives. They own stately
homes that tend to maintain high real estate appreciation rates. Their
upper-level careers keep them busy, but allow them to live comfortably.
If you're an executive and want to keep similar company, consider settling
in this neighborhood, rated as an executive lifestyle
"best choice" neighborhood for Colorado by NeighborhoodScout's analysis,
which rated it as better for executive lifestyles than 95.4%
of the neighborhoods in Colorado.
In addition to being an excellent choice for highly educated executives, this
neighborhood is also a very good choice for urban sophisticates.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
A unique way of commuting is simply not to. And in the N 63rd St / Niwot Rd
neighborhood, analysis shows that 16.9% of the residents work
from home, avoiding a commute altogether. This may not seem like a large number,
but it is a higher proportion of people working from home than is found in
98.9% of the neighborhoods in the United States.
One thing NeighborhoodScout's research reveals is that the wealthier and/or
more isolated the neighborhood, the greater the proportion of residents who
choose to work from home.
Also, if you like to ride a ferry to work, this neighborhood may be for you.
NeighborhoodScout's research revealed that 0.5% of the N 63rd St / Niwot Rd
neighborhood's commuters ride a ferry to and from work each day, which is more than we found in
98.8% of America's neighborhoods.
Finally, 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 63rd St / Niwot Rd neighborhood is a fantastic
option for bicycle commuters, as 5.6% 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: Diversity
Did you know that the N 63rd St / Niwot Rd neighborhood has more
Belgian and Russian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 1.4% of
this neighborhood's residents have Belgian ancestry and 6.7% have Russian ancestry.
N 63rd St / Niwot Rd is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 3.4% 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 98.4% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the N 63rd St / Niwot Rd 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, 80.1% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
