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: People
If you come to know the people here, you will recognize that you're
in the company of one of the wealthiest communities in the nation. In
fact, a mere 3.7% of America's neighborhoods are wealthier than the
France Ave S / Cedarwood Rd neighborhood. Real estate here is exceedingly
well-maintained, and similarly, tends to maintain its value over time.
The cars driven are mostly luxury brands like Mercedes, Audi, BMW, and
Lexus. If the public schools aren't up to snuff, the residents of this
neighborhood preferentially send their children to private preparatory
schools. Vacation to Disney? Yes, but equally popular are summers in Europe.
As one would expect in a considerably wealthy neighborhood such as this,
France Ave S / Cedarwood Rd also has one of the lowest ratings of child
poverty in the nation.
In addition, 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 France Ave S / Cedarwood Rd neighborhood: a neighborhood in which more
"urban sophisticates" live than 99.5% 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 and families with school-aged children.
Also, 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 France Ave S / Cedarwood Rd neighborhood, where 40.4% 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 98.4%
of the neighborhoods in America.
Finally, priests and therapists would like to think they know the secrets to a
truly successful marriage, but according to NeighborhoodScout's research,
the folks of the France Ave S / Cedarwood Rd neighborhood may actually hold
the key. 66.5% of its residents are married, which is a higher
percentage than is found in 96.0% of the neighborhoods

Eastern European and Romanian ancestry people living in it than nearly

this neighborhood's residents have Eastern European ancestry and 1.9% have Romanian ancestry.
France Ave S / Cedarwood Rd is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 0.3% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Yiddish at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 98.6% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
Executives, managers and professionals make up 66.2% of the workforce

in America. For this reason, this neighborhood really stands out as unique.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
Would you like to be able to ride your bike to work? If you are attracted
to the idea of getting a little exercise of the two-wheeled type while
reducing your carbon footprint, bicycling to work might be the answer.
But which neighborhood you live in can make this either impossible, or
alternatively, a great and realistic option. NeighborhoodScout's analysis
revealed that the France Ave S / Cedarwood Rd neighborhood is a fantastic
option for bicycle commuters, as 3.6% of commuters here do ride
their bikes to and from work on a daily basis. This is a higher amount
than we found in 95.6% of the neighborhoods in America.
