Many things matter about a neighborhood, but the first thing most people notice

might notice whether the buildings all date from a certain time period or whether
shop signs are in multiple languages. This particular neighborhood in Savannah,
the E Broad St / E Henry St neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.

has a greater percentage of its residents living alone: 46.3%. This

Would you like to be able to ride your bike to work? If you are attracted
to the idea of getting a little exercise of the two-wheeled type while
reducing your carbon footprint, bicycling to work might be the answer.

alternatively, a great and realistic option. NeighborhoodScout's analysis

Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, despite all of the residential real estate here in the E Broad St / E Henry St neighborhood, NeighborhoodScout has discovered that much of it is vacant. In resort or second-home vacation areas, this naturally occurs because homes and apartments are seasonally occupied, and empty for a portion of the year. In non-vacation or resort areas, however, this can be an indicator of property abandonment or a weak real estate market. The vacancy rate here is 33.3%, which is higher than 95.5% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
