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: 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 New Hampshire Estates

(60.2%) than are found in 99.2% of all U.S. neighborhoods.

Brazilian and Sub-Saharan African ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 2.4% of
this neighborhood's residents have Brazilian ancestry and 10.0% have Sub-Saharan African ancestry.
New Hampshire Estates is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 6.4% 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 99.2% of the neighborhoods in America.

Notable & Unique: Occupations
From major sales accounts to fast-food workers, sales and service employees
are often the backbone of the local economy. In the New Hampshire Estates
neighborhood, they truly stand out. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis
identifies this neighborhood as having a higher percentage of sales and
service workers than 96.5% of all American neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, most neighborhoods have a mixture of ages of homes in them, from new to old, but this neighborhood stands out due to its concentration of residential real estate built in one time frame: from 1940 through 1969, generally considered older, well-established homes. This was a busy time in America for home construction. After the end of World War II, as GIs came home, bought newly built homes on the edges of cities with the help of the GI Bill, and began their families. This housing era generally coincides with the 'Baby Boom' generation (1945 - 1964), and many baby boomers grew up in homes built in this era. But what is so interesting about the New Hampshire Estates neighborhood, is that an incredible 80.1% of the homes here were built in this era. So when you walk its streets or drive through, this neighborhood has a look and feel that harkens to that era in American life, a very important slice of Americana.
