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: Car Ownership
Most American households own a car or other vehicle. Many own two cars

Analysis reveals that 31.3% of the households here have four, five,
or more cars. That is more cars per household than in 99.0% of
the neighborhoods in the nation.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
It used to be that most Americans lived on the farm, or otherwise made their
living from the land, the forests, or the sea. With global trade and an
economy increasingly based on providing services to one another, fewer
people farm, fish or harvest timber now than at any time in American history.
But according to NeighborhoodScout's leading analysis, the
Green Bay Terrace / Hurricane Deck neighborhood stands apart from most American neighborhood due
to the proportion of its residents still working in these fields. With 8.0%
of the workforce so employed, this neighborhood has a greater concentration
of such workers than 98.3% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Furthermore, the government often provides some of the more stable jobs in the economy.
From local, to state, to federal government workers, the government can
also be a major employer. What NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed, is
that the Green Bay Terrace / Hurricane Deck neighborhood in particular stands out
when compared nationally for the proportion of its working residents who
are employed by the government. At 14.0% of its workforce, this
neighborhood has a greater concentration of government workers than
96.3% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, vacant homes and apartments are a significant characteristic of this neighborhood. In fact, with 72.4% of the residential real estate vacant, the Green Bay Terrace / Hurricane Deck neighborhood claims the distinction of having a higher vacancy rate than 99.8% of the neighborhoods in America. This can either be because much of the property is seasonally occupied, like in many vacation areas, or that much of the real estate is more permanently abandoned.
