Many things matter about a neighborhood, but the first thing most people notice
is the way a neighborhood looks and its particular character. For example, one
might notice whether the buildings all date from a certain time period or whether
shop signs are in multiple languages. This particular neighborhood in Lexington,
the Redding Ct / Redding Rd neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.
Notable & Unique: People
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: 55.0%. This
is a higher percent living alone than we found in 98.5% 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.
In addition, an extraordinary 14.4% of the residents of the
Redding Ct / Redding Rd neighborhood are currently enrolled in college. This is
such a large part of life in this neighborhood that the neighborhood changes
a great deal with the change of semesters and is far quieter during
the summer when many students are away.
Also, the Redding Ct / Redding Rd neighborhood stands out within Kentucky
for its college student friendly environment. NeighborhoodScout's analysis
reveals that this neighborhood is home to a number of college students,
is relatively walkable, and above average in safety. In combination, this
makes it stand out for a good place for college students to consider.
Because a number of college students live here, this neighborhood may
be close to a college campus and offer certain amenities nearby geared
towards the student body. While it's not an environment for everyone,
ambitious scholars can enjoy seasonal excitement between semesters and
school breaks, and parents can rest easy knowing that the area has an
above average safety rating. For each of these reasons, the
neighborhood is rated among the top 10%
of college-friendly places to live in KY.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
Do you like to be surrounded by people from all over the country or world,
with different perspectives and life experiences? Or do you instead prefer
to be in a neighborhood where most residents have lived there for a long
time, creating a sense of cohesiveness? NeighborhoodScout's analysis
reveals that this neighborhood stands out among American neighborhoods
for the uniqueness of the mobility of its residents.
In the Redding Ct / Redding Rd neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 96.6% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Redding Ct / Redding Rd neighborhood has more
Yugoslav ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 0.6% of
this neighborhood's residents have Yugoslav ancestry.
Redding Ct / Redding Rd is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 9.2% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak French at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.8% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the Redding Ct / Redding Rd stands out as rather unique in having nearly all of its residential real estate built in one time period, namely between 1970 and 1999, generally considered to be established, but not old housing. What you'll sense when you look around or drive the streets of this neighborhood is that many of the residences look the same because of this similarity of age. In fact, 89.2% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
Furthermore, the Redding Ct / Redding 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 81.3% 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.
