Many things matter about a neighborhood, but the first thing most people notice
is the way a neighborhood looks and its particular character. For example, one
might notice whether the buildings all date from a certain time period or whether
shop signs are in multiple languages. This particular neighborhood in New London,
the Sunburg neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Sunburg neighborhood has more
Norwegian and Swedish ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 39.5% of
this neighborhood's residents have Norwegian ancestry and 15.7% have Swedish ancestry.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
This neighborhood has wide open spaces, few people, and lots of space to stretch out. If you like locations that fit that description, you may like this neighborhood. Based on NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis, with only 17.42 people per square mile living here, this neighborhood is less crowded than 95.4% of America. One of the notable things about Sunburg is that it is one of the quietest neighborhoods in America, according to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis and quantitative rating of quietness. When you are here, you will find it to be very quiet. If quiet and peaceful are your cup of tea, you may have found a great place for you.
In addition, owner-occupied real estate dominates the Sunburg neighborhood. In fact, according to NeighborhoodScout research, the percentage of residential real estate occupied by its owner is higher here than in 97.6% of neighborhoods in America. Despite all of the residential real estate here in the Sunburg neighborhood, NeighborhoodScout has discovered that much of it is vacant. In resort or second-home vacation areas, this naturally occurs because homes and apartments are seasonally occupied, and empty for a portion of the year. In non-vacation or resort areas, however, this can be an indicator of property abandonment or a weak real estate market. The vacancy rate here is 34.9%, which is higher than 96.1% of all U.S. neighborhoods.

Priests and therapists would like to think they know the secrets to a
truly successful marriage, but according to NeighborhoodScout's research,

percentage than is found in 98.9% of the neighborhoods
