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
More people work in manufacturing and as laborers here in the Liberal City Center
neighborhood than in 99.9% of the neighborhoods in America. Despite
the loss of manufacturing jobs across the nation, this neighborhood remains
a place where, compared to other parts of the country, you will find many
laborers and manufacturers.
Furthermore, it used to be that most Americans lived on the farm, or otherwise made their
living from the land, the forests, or the sea. With global trade and an
economy increasingly based on providing services to one another, fewer
people farm, fish or harvest timber now than at any time in American history.
But according to NeighborhoodScout's leading analysis, the Liberal
City Center neighborhood stands apart from most American neighborhood due
to the proportion of its residents still working in these fields. With 3.9%
of the workforce so employed, this neighborhood has a greater concentration
of such workers than 95.1% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
In the Liberal City Center neighborhood, carpooling is still a popular
way to get to and from work. NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals that
30.2% of commuters carpool here, which is more than in
99.4% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Also, 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.
But which neighborhood you live in can make this either impossible, or
alternatively, a great and realistic option. NeighborhoodScout's analysis
revealed that the Liberal City Center neighborhood is a fantastic
option for bicycle commuters, as 3.7% of commuters here do ride
their bikes to and from work on a daily basis. This is a higher amount
than we found in 95.7% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Length of Commute
Regardless of the means by which residents commute, this neighborhood has
a length of commute that is notable.
Residents of the Liberal City Center neighborhood have the pleasure
of having one of the shortest commutes to work of any neighborhood in
America. 74.8% of the residents have a commute time from
home to work (one way) of less than fifteen minutes. This is a higher
proportion of residents enjoying a short trip to work than NeighborhoodScout
found in 99.0% of U.S. neighborhoods. Less time commuting
means more time for other things in life.
Notable & Unique: People

speak Spanish at home. This is a higher percentage than 97.6% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
Some neighborhoods have more internal cohesiveness than others. While other
neighborhoods feel like a collection of strangers who just happen to live
near each other. Sometimes this comes down to not only the personalities
of the people in a place, but how long people have been together in that
neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's research has revealed some interesting
things about the rootedness of people in the Liberal City Center
