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: Modes of Transportation
If your dream is to be able to ride your bike to work each day, look no
further than this unique neighborhood. With 20.9% of residents in
the Route 331 / 6th Rd neighborhood commuting on a bicycle to and
from work daily, this neighborhood has more bicycle commuters than
99.9% of all neighborhoods in the U.S., according to
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Route 331 / 6th Rd neighborhood has more
Swiss and Belgian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 3.0% of
this neighborhood's residents have Swiss ancestry and 1.2% have Belgian ancestry.
Route 331 / 6th Rd is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 11.2% 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 99.9% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research identifies the Route 331 / 6th Rd
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
41.2% of its working residents employed in such fields, which is a
higher proportion than 96.7% of American neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: People
Astoundingly, NeighborhoodScout's research reveals that this single
neighborhood has a higher concentration of married couples living here
than 96.4% of all U.S. neighborhoods. Whether they have
school-aged children or not, married couples are the rule in the
Route 331 / 6th Rd 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, the Route 331 / 6th Rd neighborhood is a great option for families,
as revealed by NeighborhoodScout's research on this neighborhood. The
combination of top public schools, low crime rates, and owner-occupied
single family homes, make this neighborhood among the top
5.8% of family-friendly neighborhoods in the
state of Indiana. Many other families also live here, making
it easy to socialize and develop a sense of community. In addition,
families here highly value education, as is reflected by the strength of
the local schools.
Notable & Unique: Car Ownership
We Americans love our cars. Not only are they a necessity for most Americans
due to the shape of our neighborhoods and the distances between where we
live, work, shop, and go to school, but we also fancy them. As a result,
most households in America have one, two, or three cars. But NeighborhoodScout's
exclusive analysis shows that the Route 331 / 6th Rd neighborhood has
a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.
27.2% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at
all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
96.3% of U.S. neighborhoods.
