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: Migration / Stability
The freedom of moving to new places versus the comfort of home. How much
and how often people move not only can create diverse and worldly neighborhoods,
but simultaneously it can produce a loss of intimacy with one's surroundings
and a lack of connectedness to one's neighbors. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive
research has identified this neighborhood as unique with regard to the
transience of its populace.
In the Broadway St / Spruce St neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 99.4% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
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 Broadway St / Spruce St neighborhood is a fantastic
option for bicycle commuters, as 9.7% of commuters here do ride
their bikes to and from work on a daily basis. This is a higher amount
than we found in 99.3% of the neighborhoods in America.
Also, in the Broadway St / Spruce St neighborhood, walking to work is a real

to put on your walking shoes if you move here!
Finally, in the Broadway St / Spruce St neighborhood, many people's commute means
walking from the bedroom to the home office. NeighborhoodScout's analysis

seem like a large number, but Scout's research shows that this is a higher
percentage of people working from home than 96.9% of the
neighborhoods in America. Often people who work from home are engaged in
the creative or technological economy, such as is found in areas around Boston,

like trading stocks from home, or running a small beauty salon.
