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: Diversity
Did you know that the Wilton Town Center neighborhood has more
Austrian and British ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 2.3% of
this neighborhood's residents have Austrian ancestry and 3.0% have British ancestry.
Wilton Town Center is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 2.1% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak French at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 95.8% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Length of Commute
Regardless of the means by which residents commute, this neighborhood has
a length of commute that is notable.
Long commutes can be brutal. They take time, money, and energy, leaving less
of you for yourself and your family. The residents of the Wilton
Town Center neighborhood unfortunately have the distinction of having,
on average, a longer commute than most any neighborhood in America.
14.2% of commuters here travel more than one hour just one-way
to work. That is more than two hours per day. This percentage with two-hour +
round-trip commutes is higher than NeighborhoodScout found in 99.2%
of all neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: People
The rate of college educated adults in the Wilton Town Center neighborhood
is a unique characteristic of the neighborhood. 75.1% 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.
In addition, if you come to know the people here, you will recognize that you're
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
Wilton Town Center neighborhood. Real estate here is exceedingly
well-maintained, and similarly, tends to maintain its value over time.
The cars driven are mostly luxury brands like Mercedes, Audi, BMW, and
Lexus. If the public schools aren't up to snuff, the residents of this
neighborhood preferentially send their children to private preparatory
schools. Vacation to Disney? Yes, but equally popular are summers in Europe.
Also, there is an especially high percentage of incarcerated people (0.5%)
living in the Wilton Town Center neighborhood.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
A unique way of commuting is simply not to. And in the Wilton Town Center
neighborhood, analysis shows that 13.3% 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
97.4% 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.
Also, in the Wilton Town Center neighborhood, 15.7% of people
ride the train to work each day. This is a very high percentage compared
to most places. In fact, NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals that this
is a higher level of train ridership than in 95.7% of the
neighborhoods in America.
