Many things matter about a neighborhood, but the first thing most people notice
is the way a neighborhood looks and its particular character. For example, one
might notice whether the buildings all date from a certain time period or whether
shop signs are in multiple languages. This particular neighborhood in Easton,
the Town Center neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.

Easton Town Center is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 3.4% of its residents five years old and above primarily

in the company of one of the wealthiest communities in the nation. In
fact, a mere 2.3% of America's neighborhoods are wealthier than the
Easton Town Center neighborhood. Real estate here is exceedingly

the folks of the Easton Town Center neighborhood may actually hold
the key. 68.2% of its residents are married, which is a higher
percentage than is found in 97.4% of the neighborhoods
Notable & Unique: Occupations
It used to be that most Americans lived on the farm, or otherwise made their
living from the land, the forests, or the sea. With global trade and an
economy increasingly based on providing services to one another, fewer
people farm, fish or harvest timber now than at any time in American history.
But according to NeighborhoodScout's leading analysis, the Easton
Town Center neighborhood stands apart from most American neighborhood due
to the proportion of its residents still working in these fields. With 4.9%
of the workforce so employed, this neighborhood has a greater concentration
of such workers than 96.4% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
A unique way of commuting is simply not to. And in the Easton Town Center
neighborhood, analysis shows that 11.6% 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
95.8% 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.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, one way that the Easton Town Center neighborhood really stands out, is that it has more large 4, 5, or additional bedroom homes and real estate than 98.7% 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, owner-occupied real estate dominates the Easton Town Center neighborhood. In fact, according to NeighborhoodScout research, the percentage of residential real estate occupied by its owner is higher here than in 97.1% of neighborhoods in America.
Also of note, some neighborhoods are made up of apartments. Some consist of row houses, and most - by far - consist of a mixture of housing types. But the Easton Town Center neighborhood stands out due to the total dominance of detached, single-family homes here. There are nearly no other types of residential real estate in the neighborhood. In fact, this neighborhood has a higher proportion of single-family homes in its real estate stock than 95.3% of all American neighborhoods.
