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: Real Estate
Pasadena is a neighborhood that is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet.
Many times, such places have amenities that bring locals and visitors to the
waterfront for recreational activities or to check out the scenery.
In some densely populated areas that are less financially well-off, the neighborhood
waterfront can be relatively industrial and less open to recreation.
In addition to being coastal, Pasadena is a very nautical neighborhood,
meaning that it is somewhat historic, walkable, densely populated and
on the water. This gives the neighborhood a very nautical feel,
with some seaside and shipping feel, which some may really enjoy the sights
and sounds of.
In addition, real estate in the Pasadena neighborhood is almost exclusively owner-occupied. NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals that this neighborhood has a higher rate of owner-occupied housing than is found in 95.0% of U.S. neighborhoods. If you are seeking to rent, this neighborhood may not have many options, but high rates of ownership often indicate stability in a neighborhood. With a real estate vacancy rate of only 0.6%, the Pasadena neighborhood has a lower vacancy rate than 96.3% 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.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Pasadena neighborhood has more
Lebanese and Greek ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 1.2% of
this neighborhood's residents have Lebanese ancestry and 1.9% have Greek ancestry.
Pasadena is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 0.7% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Greek at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 95.7% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
The Pasadena neighborhood has a greater proportion of
government workers living in it than 95.2% 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: People
If you're looking for a great spot to raise a family, then look no
further than the Pasadena neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's
analysis found that the combination of good quality public schools,
above-average safety from crime, and a high rate of home ownership in
predominantly single-family homes, help make this neighborhood
among the top 11.3% of family-friendly neighborhoods
across the state of Maryland. In addition, there are a high proportion
of other families with school-aged children living here, making it easy
for parents and their children to socialize and develop a sense of community
support. In addition, families here highly value education, as is reflected
by the strength of the local schools, in part due to the educational
attainment of the parents here, who vote in support of the public schools.
In addition to being an excellent choice for families with school-aged children, this
neighborhood is also a very good choice for urban sophisticates.
