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: Real Estate
Rowayton is a neighborhood that is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet.
Many times, such places have amenities that bring locals and visitors to the
waterfront for recreational activities or to check out the scenery.
In some densely populated areas that are less financially well-off, the neighborhood
waterfront can be relatively industrial and less open to recreation.
In addition to being coastal, Rowayton is a very nautical neighborhood,
meaning that it is somewhat historic, walkable, densely populated and
on the water. This gives the neighborhood a very nautical feel,
with some seaside and shipping feel, which some may really enjoy the sights
and sounds of.
Notable & Unique: People
If you're a regular supporter of the arts and enjoy outings to the
theatre, weekend boutique-ing, or even a finely aged wine with dinner,
than you're in good company with the people of the Rowayton
neighborhood. This neighborhood is uniquely immersed with more "urban
sophisticates" than 99.4% of neighborhoods across the
country. The people here truly stand out as a class among their own.
They are an exclusive community characterized by refined tastes,
cultural inclinations, and the means to live well. Urban sophisticates
live a big city lifestyle, whether or not they live in or near a big
city. They are educated executives or managers by week, and serial
patrons of the arts by weekend. If this lifestyle pertains to you,
than you'll certainly feel right at home in the Rowayton
In addition to being an excellent choice for urban sophisticates, this
neighborhood is also a very good choice for highly educated executives and active retirees.
In addition, 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 Rowayton neighborhood is wealthier than 98.0%
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.
Also, the rate of college educated adults in the Rowayton neighborhood
is a unique characteristic of the neighborhood. 75.4% of
adults here have received at least a 4-year bachelor's degree, compared to
the average neighborhood in America, which has 22.6% of the adults with a
bachelor's degree. The rate here is higher than NeighborhoodScout found in
97.9% of all U.S. neighborhoods.

truly successful marriage, but according to NeighborhoodScout's research,
the folks of the Rowayton neighborhood may actually hold

Rowayton is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.2% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Greek at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 98.0% of the neighborhoods in America.

but it is a higher proportion of people working from home than is found in

more isolated the neighborhood, the greater the proportion of residents who
choose to work from home.
