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 Houma,
the Crozier / Mulberry neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.

Crozier / Mulberry is a neighborhood that is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet.
Many times, such places have amenities that bring locals and visitors to the
waterfront for recreational activities or to check out the scenery.
In some densely populated areas that are less financially well-off, the neighborhood
waterfront can be relatively industrial and less open to recreation.
In addition to being coastal, Crozier / Mulberry is a very nautical neighborhood,
meaning that it is somewhat historic, walkable, densely populated and
on the water. This gives the neighborhood a very nautical feel,
with some seaside and shipping feel, which some may really enjoy the sights
and sounds of.

Canadian and French Canadian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 3.0% of
this neighborhood's residents have Canadian ancestry and 11.3% have French Canadian ancestry.
Crozier / Mulberry is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 4.9% of its residents five years old and above primarily

Notable & Unique: Occupations
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research identifies the Crozier / Mulberry
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
42.8% of its working residents employed in such fields, which is a
higher proportion than 97.5% of American neighborhoods.
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.

of such workers than 95.5% of U.S. neighborhoods.
