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.

Finnish and Native American ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 5.4% of
this neighborhood's residents have Finnish ancestry and 9.0% have Native American ancestry.
Newberry Village Center is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 2.3% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Native American languages at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.3% of the neighborhoods in America.

detention facility or other correctional facility occupies a large proportion
of the neighborhood, or contains a large portion of the neighborhood's population.
