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.

Lebanese and Ukrainian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 6.6% of
this neighborhood's residents have Lebanese ancestry and 4.2% have Ukrainian ancestry.
Cherry Hill St / S Telegraph Rd is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 3.6% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Arabic at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 98.4% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation

Cherry Hill St / S Telegraph Rd neighborhood stands out by having 97.4% of commuters
doing so, which is a higher proportion of people driving alone to work
than NeighborhoodScout found in 99.6% of all American
Notable & Unique: People
Think about the people you know personally. How many of them would
purchase box seats to opening night at the symphony? How many of them
regularly attend gallery openings, or are the first to reserve tickets
to opening night at the ballet? If they're like most of us, they don't
do any of these things. But if you're among an exclusive crowd of wealthy
and refined patrons of the arts, then you'll feel right at home in
the Cherry Hill St / S Telegraph Rd neighborhood: a neighborhood in which more
"urban sophisticates" live than 99.2% of neighborhoods
across the U.S. Here, your neighbors are defined as having urbane
tastes in literature, music, live theatre and the arts. They are wealthy,
educated, travel in style, and live a big city lifestyle whether or
not they live in or near a big city.
In addition to being an excellent choice for urban sophisticates, this
neighborhood is also a very good choice for highly educated executives, families with school-aged children and college students.
In addition, if knowledge is power, then imagine the cumulative power of one neighborhood
where many of the adults have earned an advanced degree, such as a Masters,
law degree, medical degree, or even a Ph.D. This is certainly the case in
the Cherry Hill St / S Telegraph Rd neighborhood, where 31.4% have
earned an advanced degree. Compare that to the average neighborhood in
America, where just 8.4% of adults have completed a post-graduate degree,
and you can see why this neighborhood is a stand out. In fact, this neighborhood
has a higher rate of adults with an advanced degree than 95.3%
of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
