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
Dowds Junction / Eagles Nest 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
Dowds Junction / Eagles Nest community truly stands out from the rest in this regard.
In addition, one of the most interesting things about the Dowds Junction / Eagles Nest
neighborhood is that it has a greater concentration of residents who live
alone than most all neighborhoods in America. With 47.5% of the
households here made up of people living alone, NeighborhoodScout's research
reveals that this is a larger proportion of people living alone than in
95.8% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
There are more people living in the Dowds Junction / Eagles Nest neighborhood
employed as sales and service workers (47.3%) than almost any neighborhood
in the country. From fast-food service workers to major sales accounts,
sales and service workers make up the largest proportion of our national
employment picture. But despite that size and importance nationally, this
neighborhood still stands out as unique due to the dominance of people
living here who work in such occupations.

than 96.2% of U.S. neighborhoods.

Scottish ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 5.0% of

Dowds Junction / Eagles Nest is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.5% 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 95.5% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, vacant homes and apartments are a significant characteristic of this neighborhood. In fact, with 65.0% of the residential real estate vacant, the Dowds Junction / Eagles Nest neighborhood claims the distinction of having a higher vacancy rate than 99.5% of the neighborhoods in America. This can either be because much of the property is seasonally occupied, like in many vacation areas, or that much of the real estate is more permanently abandoned.
Furthermore, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the Dowds Junction / Eagles Nest 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, 90.2% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
Also of note, many people dream of living along a street lined with row houses or other attached homes. Such places do often have an abundance of charm. If you are one of these people, the Dowds Junction / Eagles Nest neighborhood could be your paradise. With 26.8% of the homes and real estate here classified as rowhouses or other attached homes, this neighborhood brims with opportunity to find the right place for you.
