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.

than 99.9% of U.S. neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Car Ownership
Most American households own a car or other vehicle. Many own two cars
or perhaps three. In the United States, it is useful to have an automobile
not only for commuting, but also for shopping and getting to other services
one needs. But NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed that households in

average per capita income lower than 97.8% of the neighborhoods

3.6% of adults here having earned a bachelor's degree.
This is a lower rate of college graduates than NeighborhoodScout found
in 97.6% of America's neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, many people dream of living along a street lined with row houses or other attached homes. Such places do often have an abundance of charm. If you are one of these people, the E North Ave / Cecil Ave neighborhood could be your paradise.

Furthermore, vacant homes and apartments are a significant characteristic of this neighborhood. In fact, with 39.3% of the residential real estate vacant, the E North Ave / Cecil Ave neighborhood claims the distinction of having a higher vacancy rate than 97.1% of the neighborhoods in America. This can either be because much of the property is seasonally occupied, like in many vacation areas, or that much of the real estate is more permanently abandoned.
