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
With 30.9% of employed workers living in the
Battle Park / Custer Road Terrace neighborhood active in the military, this neighborhood has
the distinction of having a higher proportion of people in the military
than 99.8% of American neighborhoods. This is a major
shaper of the neighborhood's culture and character.
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 Battle Park / Custer Road Terrace neighborhood in particular stands out
when compared nationally for the proportion of its working residents who
are employed by the government. At 37.1% of its workforce, this
neighborhood has a greater concentration of government workers than
99.8% of U.S. neighborhoods.
In addition, neighborhoodScout's exclusive research identifies the Battle Park / Custer Road Terrace
neighborhood as having one of the highest concentrations of people employed
in manufacturing or as laborers of any neighborhood in America. In fact,
despite the loss of manufacturing jobs nationally, this neighborhood has
39.4% of its working residents employed in such fields, which is a
higher proportion than 95.4% of American neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Battle Park / Custer Road Terrace neighborhood has more
Brazilian and Croatian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 1.7% of
this neighborhood's residents have Brazilian ancestry and 1.1% have Croatian ancestry.
Battle Park / Custer Road Terrace is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 4.5% 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 99.7% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: People
Astoundingly, NeighborhoodScout's research reveals that this single
neighborhood has a higher concentration of married couples living here
than 97.6% of all U.S. neighborhoods. Whether they have
school-aged children or not, married couples are the rule in the
Battle Park / Custer Road Terrace neighborhood. If you are a married couple, you may find many
people here with a similar lifestyle, and perhaps common interests. But if
you are single, you might not find many other singles here.
In addition, an extraordinary 12.1% of the residents of the
Battle Park / Custer Road Terrace 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.
Also, the Battle Park / Custer Road Terrace neighborhood stands out within Georgia
for its college student friendly environment. NeighborhoodScout's analysis
reveals that this neighborhood is home to a number of college students,
is relatively walkable, and above average in safety. In combination, this
makes it stand out for a good place for college students to consider.
Because a number of college students live here, this neighborhood may
be close to a college campus and offer certain amenities nearby geared
towards the student body. While it's not an environment for everyone,
ambitious scholars can enjoy seasonal excitement between semesters and
school breaks, and parents can rest easy knowing that the area has an
above average safety rating. For each of these reasons, the
neighborhood is rated among the top 7%
of college-friendly places to live in GA.
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.
In the Battle Park / Custer Road Terrace neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 97.0% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, 100.0% of the real estate in the Battle Park / Custer Road Terrace neighborhood is occupied by renters, which is nearly the highest rate of renter occupancy of any neighborhood in America. Vacant homes and apartments are a significant characteristic of this neighborhood. In fact, with 41.3% of the residential real estate vacant, the Battle Park / Custer Road Terrace neighborhood claims the distinction of having a higher vacancy rate than 97.5% of the neighborhoods in America. This can either be because much of the property is seasonally occupied, like in many vacation areas, or that much of the real estate is more permanently abandoned.
Furthermore, corner bodegas, stores on the first floor and apartments above, former grand Victorian residences converted into apartments, three-deckers built shoulder-to-shoulder, duplexes. Such building types define the real estate of neighborhoods dominated by small 2, 3, and 4 unit apartment buildings. Many are in older core neighborhoods of Eastern and Midwestern cities, or historic town centers in their hinterlands. If you wax romantic about the look and feel of such neighborhoods, with fresh pizza, falafel and an independent florist at the corner, then you might find the Battle Park / Custer Road Terrace neighborhood worth a close look. This neighborhood is an absolutely outstanding example of the dominance of small 2, 3, and 4 unit apartment buildings compared to neighborhoods across the nation, as they make up a substantial portion of this neighborhood's real estate stock. In fact, no less than 47.4% of the real estate here is made up of such dwellings, which is higher than 97.6% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
