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: Modes of Transportation
In the Langley Park neighborhood, carpooling is still a popular
way to get to and from work. NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals that
57.3% of commuters carpool here, which is more than in
99.9% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Also, our research revealed that more commuters here take the bus to work
(15.9% ride the bus) than 95.2% of all American
neighborhoods. If you like the idea of leaving your car and home and
hopping the bus to work, this might be a good neighborhood for you to
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
Some neighborhoods have more internal cohesiveness than others. While other
neighborhoods feel like a collection of strangers who just happen to live
near each other. Sometimes this comes down to not only the personalities
of the people in a place, but how long people have been together in that
neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's research has revealed some interesting
things about the rootedness of people in the Langley Park
What is interesting to note, is that the Langley Park
neighborhood has a greater percentage of residents born in another country
(73.6%) than are found in 99.9% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
More people work in manufacturing and as laborers here in the Langley Park
neighborhood than in 99.4% of the neighborhoods in America. Despite
the loss of manufacturing jobs across the nation, this neighborhood remains
a place where, compared to other parts of the country, you will find many
laborers and manufacturers.
Furthermore, there are more people living in the Langley Park neighborhood
employed as sales and service workers (58.0%) than almost any neighborhood
in the country. From fast-food service workers to major sales accounts,
sales and service workers make up the largest proportion of our national
employment picture. But despite that size and importance nationally, this
neighborhood still stands out as unique due to the dominance of people
living here who work in such occupations.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Significantly, 83.6% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Spanish at home. This is a higher percentage than 98.9% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
The Langley Park neighborhood is very densely populated compared to most U.S. neighborhoods. In fact, with 44,643 persons per square mile in the neighborhood, it is more packed with people than 98.3% of the nation's neighborhoods.
In addition, one of the really unique and interesting things about the look and setting of the Langley Park neighborhood is that it is almost entirely dominated by large apartment buildings, such as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments. 83.6% of the residential real estate here is classified as such. This puts this neighborhood on the map as having a higher proportion of large apartment buildings than 97.8% of all neighborhoods in America.
Furthermore, renter-occupied real estate is dominant in the Langley Park neighborhood. The percentage of rental real estate here, according to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, is 92.4%, which is higher than 97.7% of the neighborhoods in America. If you were to buy and live in the property you bought here, you would be almost alone in doing so. This neighborhood has the distinction of having one of the lowest real estate vacancy rates of any neighborhood in America. With just 1.1% of the real estate vacant, this indicates an exceptionally strong demand for real estate in the Langley Park neighborhood, and/or an issue with creating enough supply for the demand. This could have the effect of increasing real estate prices, increasing supply to meet demand, or both.
Also of note, the Langley Park 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 85.3% 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.
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
the Langley Park neighborhood have a highly unusual car ownership.
35.6% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at
all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
97.5% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: People
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research revealed that 96.1%
of the adult residents in the Langley Park neighborhood do
not have a 4-year college degree, which is a lower rate of college graduated
adults than found in 97.3% of the neighborhoods in America.
