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.

Welsh and African ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 4.8% of
this neighborhood's residents have Welsh ancestry and 4.2% have African ancestry.
Pfeiffer Corners is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 4.5% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Korean at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 98.6% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
The government often provides some of the more stable jobs in the economy.
From local, to state, to federal government workers, the government can
also be a major employer. What NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed, is

neighborhood has a greater concentration of government workers than

its residents employed as executives, managers and professionals than
96.4% of the neighborhoods in American. In fact, 65.5%
of the employed people here make a living as an executive, a manager, or

the character of this neighborhood, and to a large degree defines what
this neighborhood is about.
Notable & Unique: People
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 33.8% 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
96.4% of U.S. neighborhoods, where the average American

highly educated, you may have much in common with many of your neighbors here.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation

Pfeiffer Corners neighborhood stands out by having 93.7% of commuters
doing so, which is a higher proportion of people driving alone to work

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 Pfeiffer Corners neighborhood could be your paradise.

Furthermore, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the Pfeiffer Corners 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, 91.7% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
