Most neighborhoods have a mixture of ages of homes in them, from new to old, but this neighborhood stands out due to its concentration of residential real estate built in one time frame: from 1940 through 1969, generally considered older, well-established homes. This was a busy time in America for home construction. After the end of World War II, as GIs came home, bought newly built homes on the edges of cities with the help of the GI Bill, and began their families. This housing era generally coincides with the 'Baby Boom' generation (1945 - 1964), and many baby boomers grew up in homes built in this era. But what is so interesting about the Military Hwy / Crystal Lake Rd neighborhood, is that an incredible 100.0% of the homes here were built in this era.

In fact, with 70.0% of the residential real estate vacant, the Military Hwy / Crystal Lake Rd neighborhood claims the distinction of having a higher vacancy rate than 99.7% of the neighborhoods in America.
