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
An interesting characteristic about the Smith Rd / Havana St neighborhood
is that there are more incarcerated people living here than 99.3%
of neighborhoods in the U.S. The United States has the highest rate of
incarceration in the world, currently with 1 out of every 100 adults in the
country are incarcerated as a punishment for crimes committed. The extremely
high incarceration rate of this neighborhood could mean that a prison, juvenile
detention facility or other correctional facility occupies a large proportion
of the neighborhood, or contains a large portion of the neighborhood's population.
In addition, 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 1.9% of America's neighborhoods are wealthier than the
Smith Rd / Havana St 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.
Also, a majority of the adults in the Smith Rd / Havana St 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 95.6%
of the neighborhoods in Colorado.
Finally, if knowledge is power, then imagine the cumulative power of one neighborhood
where many of the adults have earned an advanced degree, such as a Masters,
law degree, medical degree, or even a Ph.D. This is certainly the case in
the Smith Rd / Havana St neighborhood, where 31.6% have
earned an advanced degree. Compare that to the average neighborhood in
America, where just 8.4% of adults have completed a post-graduate degree,
and you can see why this neighborhood is a stand out. In fact, this neighborhood
has a higher rate of adults with an advanced degree than 95.4%
of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
Executives, managers and professionals make up 73.3% of the workforce
in the Smith Rd / Havana St neighborhood which, according to

high-level people than is found in 98.8% of the neighborhoods
in America. For this reason, this neighborhood really stands out as unique.

British and Eastern European ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 2.2% of

Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
A unique way of commuting is simply not to. And in the Smith Rd / Havana St
neighborhood, analysis shows that 13.0% 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
97.2% 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.

In most neighborhoods, there is a mixture of ages of residential real estate, but here it is almost completely built during one time frame: 2000 through today.
