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 Southborough,
the Cordaville neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Cordaville neighborhood has more
Lebanese and Greek ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 3.0% of
this neighborhood's residents have Lebanese ancestry and 3.9% have Greek ancestry.
Cordaville is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 3.7% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Arabic at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 98.4% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: People
Wealth makes most things in life easier, and a few things harder.
If you are wealthy and enjoy keeping up with the Jones', this neighborhood
will interest you. In fact, according to NeighborhoodScout's research,
the Cordaville neighborhood is wealthier than 99.6%

sheer amount of wealth concentrated here. Even in times of economic
downturn, residents of this neighborhood, as a group, suffered less
and recovered more quickly. This is indeed a stand-out characteristic
of this neighborhood.
In addition, think about the people you know personally. How many of them would
purchase box seats to opening night at the symphony? How many of them
regularly attend gallery openings, or are the first to reserve tickets
to opening night at the ballet? If they're like most of us, they don't
do any of these things. But if you're among an exclusive crowd of wealthy
and refined patrons of the arts, then you'll feel right at home in
the Cordaville neighborhood: a neighborhood in which more
"urban sophisticates" live than 98.3% of neighborhoods

not they live in or near a big city.
