The way a neighborhood looks and feels when you walk or drive around it, from
its setting, its buildings, and its flavor, can make all the difference. This
neighborhood has some really cool things about the way it looks and feels as
revealed by NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research. This might include anything
from the housing stock to the types of households living here to how people
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Western Run Dr / Clarks Ln neighborhood has more
Eastern European and Russian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 9.0% of
this neighborhood's residents have Eastern European ancestry and 7.1% have Russian ancestry.
Western Run Dr / Clarks Ln is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 7.6% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Hebrew at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.9% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: People
One of the most interesting things about the Western Run Dr / Clarks Ln
neighborhood is that it has a greater concentration of residents who live
alone than most all neighborhoods in America. With 51.2% of the
households here made up of people living alone, NeighborhoodScout's research
reveals that this is a larger proportion of people living alone than in
97.4% of the neighborhoods in America.
In addition, some neighborhoods have residents that are more educated than others. But
in this neighborhood there is a dramatic difference. NeighborhoodScout's
exclusive analysis reveals that 34.8% of the adults here have
earned a Masters degree, medical degree, Ph.D. or law degree. This is a
higher rate of people with a graduate degree than is found in
96.9% of U.S. neighborhoods, where the average American
neighborhood has 8.4% of its adults with a graduate degree. If you are
highly educated, you may have much in common with many of your neighbors here.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, with a real estate vacancy rate of only 0.0%, the Western Run Dr / Clarks Ln neighborhood has a lower vacancy rate than 100.0% of U.S. neighborhoods, a very elite group. Such a low vacancy rate may indicate very strong real estate demand in the neighborhood combined with some impediments to increasing supply, such as zoning or existing density of development, among other potential reasons.
Furthermore, the real estate in the Western Run Dr / Clarks Ln neighborhood really stands out in the way it looks for a unique reason: this neighborhood has a higher proportion of apartment complexes or high-rise apartments than nearly every neighborhood in the country. Most neighborhoods are a mixture of real estate and housing types, but here it is almost entirely dominated by big apartment buildings and complexes. In fact, 80.7% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 97.4% of American neighborhoods.
Also of note, the Western Run Dr / Clarks Ln 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 85.0% 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.
