Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

Many things matter about a neighborhood, but the first thing most people notice is the way a neighborhood looks and its particular character.

This particular neighborhood in Washington, the New York Ave NW / L St NW neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.

Notable & Unique: Occupations

The government often provides some of the more stable jobs in the economy. From local, to state, to federal government workers, the government can also be a major employer. What NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed, is that the New York Ave NW / L St NW neighborhood in particular stands out when compared nationally for the proportion of its working residents who are employed by the government. At 20.4% of its workforce, this neighborhood has a greater concentration of government workers than 99.1% of U.S. neighborhoods.

Furthermore, 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.

Notable & Unique: Real Estate
