The way a neighborhood looks and feels when you walk or drive around it, from
its setting, its buildings, and its flavor, can make all the difference. This
neighborhood has some really cool things about the way it looks and feels as
revealed by NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research. This might include anything
from the housing stock to the types of households living here to how people
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Eisenhower Dr / Grape Rd neighborhood has more
Yugoslav and Belgian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 3.3% of
this neighborhood's residents have Yugoslav ancestry and 2.6% have Belgian ancestry.
Eisenhower Dr / Grape Rd is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 2.3% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak African languages at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 96.2% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
Our research reveals that 96.1% of commuters who live in the
Eisenhower Dr / Grape Rd neighborhood get to work each day by driving
alone in their automobiles, which is a higher proportion than
99.0% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: People
The Eisenhower Dr / Grape Rd neighborhood stands out for having an
average per capita income lower than 96.5% of the neighborhoods
in the United States.
In addition, the types of households in a neighborhood can tell a lot about the character
and lifestyle of those living here. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis
reveals that this neighborhood, above nearly every neighborhood in America,
has a greater percentage of its residents living alone: 48.7%. This
is a higher percent living alone than we found in 96.4% of
all U.S. neighborhoods. Often residents who live alone are new arrivals
to an area who are single, and often senior citizens who have lost a spouse.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
There are more people living in the Eisenhower Dr / Grape Rd neighborhood
employed as sales and service workers (56.6%) than almost any neighborhood
in the country. From fast-food service workers to major sales accounts,
sales and service workers make up the largest proportion of our national
employment picture. But despite that size and importance nationally, this
neighborhood still stands out as unique due to the dominance of people
living here who work in such occupations.
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 Eisenhower Dr / Grape Rd neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 95.8% 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, 92.2% of the real estate in the Eisenhower Dr / Grape Rd neighborhood is occupied by renters, which is nearly the highest rate of renter occupancy of any neighborhood in America.
Furthermore, one of the really unique and interesting things about the look and setting of the Eisenhower Dr / Grape Rd neighborhood is that it is almost entirely dominated by large apartment buildings, such as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments. 82.6% of the residential real estate here is classified as such. This puts this neighborhood on the map as having a higher proportion of large apartment buildings than 97.6% of all neighborhoods in America.
Also of note, the Eisenhower Dr / Grape Rd neighborhood is very unique in that it has one of the highest proportions of one, two, or no bedroom real estate of any neighborhood in America. Most neighborhoods have a mixture of home or apartment sizes from small to large, but here the concentration of studios and other small living spaces is at near-record heights. With 82.4% of the real estate here of this small size, this most assuredly is a notable feature that makes this neighborhood unique, along with just a handful of other neighborhoods in the U.S. that share this characteristic.
