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: Occupations
The Sugar Grove Pl / Mockingbird Ln neighborhood stands out nationally for having
a greater proportion of its residents active in the military than
98.7% of other U.S. neighborhoods. If you come here, you
will notice military people active in their jobs, going to and from work,
and in plain clothes out and about the neighborhood.
Furthermore, 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 Sugar Grove Pl / Mockingbird Ln neighborhood in particular stands out
when compared nationally for the proportion of its working residents who
are employed by the government. At 13.0% of its workforce, this
neighborhood has a greater concentration of government workers than
95.6% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Sugar Grove Pl / Mockingbird Ln neighborhood has more
Finnish and Puerto Rican ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 1.7% of
this neighborhood's residents have Finnish ancestry and 8.1% have Puerto Rican ancestry.
Sugar Grove Pl / Mockingbird Ln is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 2.6% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak German at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 98.8% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: People
An extraordinary 12.1% of the residents of the
Sugar Grove Pl / Mockingbird Ln neighborhood are currently enrolled in college. This is
such a large part of life in this neighborhood that the neighborhood changes
a great deal with the change of semesters and is far quieter during
the summer when many students are away.
In addition, astoundingly, the Sugar Grove Pl / Mockingbird Ln neighborhood has one of the highest
concentrations of divorcees living here than of any neighborhood, a
higher concentration than NeighborhoodScout found in 95.2%
of U.S. neighborhoods. This may be because people living here divorce
more often than others, or that divorced people move here after they
become divorced. If you are divorced, you will be in good company in
this particular Orange Park neighborhood.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the Sugar Grove Pl / Mockingbird Ln stands out as rather unique in having nearly all of its residential real estate built in one time period, namely between 1970 and 1999, generally considered to be established, but not old housing. What you'll sense when you look around or drive the streets of this neighborhood is that many of the residences look the same because of this similarity of age. In fact, 90.2% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
