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.

In fact, this neighborhood has a higher proportion of single-family homes in its real estate stock than 98.4% of all American neighborhoods.
