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.

Haitian and Belgian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 42.0% of
this neighborhood's residents have Haitian ancestry and 3.7% have Belgian ancestry.
W Dixie Hwy / NE 22nd Ave is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 0.5% of its residents five years old and above primarily

identifies this neighborhood as having a higher percentage of sales and
service workers than 98.4% of all American neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
The freedom of moving to new places versus the comfort of home. How much
and how often people move not only can create diverse and worldly neighborhoods,
but simultaneously it can produce a loss of intimacy with one's surroundings
and a lack of connectedness to one's neighbors. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive
research has identified this neighborhood as unique with regard to the
transience of its populace.
