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: People
If you come to know the people here, you will recognize that you're
in the company of one of the wealthiest communities in the nation. In
fact, a mere 1.1% of America's neighborhoods are wealthier than the
Central Ave / Enterprise Rd neighborhood. Real estate here is exceedingly
well-maintained, and similarly, tends to maintain its value over time.
The cars driven are mostly luxury brands like Mercedes, Audi, BMW, and
Lexus. If the public schools aren't up to snuff, the residents of this
neighborhood preferentially send their children to private preparatory
schools. Vacation to Disney? Yes, but equally popular are summers in Europe.
As one would expect in a considerably wealthy neighborhood such as this,
Central Ave / Enterprise Rd also has one of the lowest ratings of child
poverty in the nation.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Central Ave / Enterprise Rd neighborhood has more
Sub-Saharan African and Jamaican ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 24.5% of
this neighborhood's residents have Sub-Saharan African ancestry and 4.8% have Jamaican ancestry.
Central Ave / Enterprise Rd is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 2.7% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak African languages at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 97.0% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
The Central Ave / Enterprise Rd neighborhood has a greater proportion of
government workers living in it than 99.0% of the neighborhoods
in America, according to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis. This is
a unique feature of this neighborhood, and one that shapes its character.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, one way that the Central Ave / Enterprise Rd neighborhood really stands out, is that it has more large 4, 5, or additional bedroom homes and real estate than 99.7% of the neighborhoods in America. When you walk or drive around this neighborhood, you'll instantly notice the size of the homes here which definitely makes a strong visual statement.
Furthermore, owner-occupied real estate dominates the Central Ave / Enterprise Rd neighborhood. In fact, according to NeighborhoodScout research, the percentage of residential real estate occupied by its owner is higher here than in 98.3% of neighborhoods in America.
Also of note, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the Central Ave / Enterprise Rd stands out as rather unique in having nearly all of its residential real estate built in one time period, namely between 1970 and 1999, generally considered to be established, but not old housing. What you'll sense when you look around or drive the streets of this neighborhood is that many of the residences look the same because of this similarity of age. In fact, 80.0% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
