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
Wealth makes most things in life easier, and a few things harder.
If you are wealthy and enjoy keeping up with the Jones', this neighborhood
will interest you. In fact, according to NeighborhoodScout's research,
the Genesee neighborhood is wealthier than 97.9%
of the neighborhoods in the United States. Residents here are truly in
a unique situation even when compared to other Americans, based on the
sheer amount of wealth concentrated here. Even in times of economic
downturn, residents of this neighborhood, as a group, suffered less
and recovered more quickly. This is indeed a stand-out characteristic
of this neighborhood.
As one would expect in a considerably wealthy neighborhood such as this,
Genesee also has one of the lowest ratings of child
poverty in the nation.
In addition, a majority of the adults in the Genesee 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

"best choice" neighborhood for Colorado by NeighborhoodScout's analysis,
which rated it as better for executive lifestyles than 98.6%
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 and active retirees.
Also, priests and therapists would like to think they know the secrets to a
truly successful marriage, but according to NeighborhoodScout's research,
the folks of the Genesee neighborhood may actually hold
the key. 69.6% of its residents are married, which is a higher
percentage than is found in 98.2% of the neighborhoods
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 Genesee neighborhood, where 35.6% 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 97.1%
of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
In the Genesee neighborhood, many people's commute means
walking from the bedroom to the home office. NeighborhoodScout's analysis
found that 16.4% of residents worked from home. This may not
seem like a large number, but Scout's research shows that this is a higher
percentage of people working from home than 98.8% 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,
and in Silicon Valley. Other times, people may be engaged in other businesses
like trading stocks from home, or running a small beauty salon.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
The Genesee neighborhood has a higher proportion of
its residents employed as executives, managers and professionals than
98.1% of the neighborhoods in American. In fact, 70.3%
of the employed people here make a living as an executive, a manager, or
other professional. With such a high concentration, this truly shapes
the character of this neighborhood, and to a large degree defines what
this neighborhood is about.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Genesee neighborhood has more
Welsh and British ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 2.7% of
this neighborhood's residents have Welsh ancestry and 1.9% have British ancestry.
Genesee is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.7% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak German at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 96.7% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
One of the notable things about Genesee is that it is one of the quietest neighborhoods in America, according to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis and quantitative rating of quietness. When you are here, you will find it to be very quiet. If quiet and peaceful are your cup of tea, you may have found a great place for you.
In addition, one way that the Genesee neighborhood really stands out, is that it has more large 4, 5, or additional bedroom homes and real estate than 95.1% 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.
Furthermore, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the Genesee 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, 83.1% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
