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: Real Estate
Do you like a coastal setting? If so, this neighborhood may be to your liking.
The Scituate Town Center neighborhood is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet.
Often such coastal places have amenities and recreational activities on the waterfront
that are attractive to residents and visitors alike.
In addition to being coastal, Scituate Town Center 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.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Scituate Town Center neighborhood has more
Irish and Brazilian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 47.0% of
this neighborhood's residents have Irish ancestry and 2.4% have Brazilian ancestry.
Scituate Town Center is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 0.5% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Yiddish at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.1% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
If you like to ride a ferry to work, this neighborhood may be for you.
NeighborhoodScout's research revealed that 1.6% of the Scituate Town Center
neighborhood's commuters ride a ferry to and from work each day, which is more than we found in
99.5% of America's neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: People
If you are planning to retire in Massachusetts, this neighborhood
should be on your must-see list. For many reasons, Scituate Town Center
may be considered a retiree's dream neighborhood. According to NeighborhoodScout's
exclusive analysis and metrics, it's peaceful and quiet, has above
average safety from crime compared to other neighborhoods in Massachusetts,
while also offering a diverse range of housing options. This, along with
the vibrant mix of very educated seniors and other age groups who choose
to live here, makes the neighborhood more
retiree-friendly than 98.5% of neighborhoods in
MA. If a Massachusetts retirement is in your future, this neighborhood
should be one of the places you visit.
In addition to being an excellent choice for active retirees, this
neighborhood is also a very good choice for urban sophisticates.
Notable & Unique: Length of Commute
Regardless of the means by which residents commute, this neighborhood has
a length of commute that is notable.
Long commutes can be brutal. They take time, money, and energy, leaving less
of you for yourself and your family. The residents of the Scituate
Town Center neighborhood unfortunately have the distinction of having,
on average, a longer commute than most any neighborhood in America.
11.3% of commuters here travel more than one hour just one-way
to work. That is more than two hours per day. This percentage with two-hour +
round-trip commutes is higher than NeighborhoodScout found in 98.2%
of all neighborhoods in America.
