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.

In addition, one of the really interesting characteristics about the
Texas Ave / Gorgas Ave neighborhood is that, according to NeighborhoodScout's

safety from crime, the neighborhood is ideal for prospective or
already-enrolled college students. Between semesters and during
school breaks, you'll notice that the excitement here fluctuates with
the college seasons. Despite the excitement however, parents of college-age

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.

government workers living in it than 99.7% of the neighborhoods

a unique feature of this neighborhood, and one that shapes its character.
In addition, 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.

found in 97.6% of U.S. neighborhoods. Less time commuting
means more time for other things in life.
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 Texas Ave / Gorgas Ave neighborhood, a greater proportion of
