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: Diversity
Did you know that the Spickard / Brimson neighborhood has more
Swiss and Czechoslovakian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 2.9% of
this neighborhood's residents have Swiss ancestry and 0.7% have Czechoslovakian ancestry.
Spickard / Brimson is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 6.4% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak German at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.8% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
Each year, fewer and fewer Americans make their living as farmers, foresters,
or fishers. But the Spickard / Brimson neighborhood truly stands
out among U.S. neighborhoods. According to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis,
this neighborhood has a greater proportion of farmers, foresters, or fishers
than 97.4% of all American neighborhoods. This is truly a unique
cultural characteristic of this neighborhood.
Notable & Unique: Length of Commute
Whether walking, biking, riding, or driving, the length of one's commute
is an important factor for one's quality of life. The Spickard / Brimson
neighborhood stands out for its commute length, according to NeighborhoodScout's
Long commutes can be brutal. They take time, money, and energy, leaving less
of you for yourself and your family. The residents of the
Spickard / Brimson neighborhood unfortunately have the distinction of having,
on average, a longer commute than most any neighborhood in America.
9.8% of commuters here travel more than one hour just one-way
to work. That is more than two hours per day. This percentage with two-hour +
round-trip commutes is higher than NeighborhoodScout found in 97.2%
of all neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
Uncrowded roads, rural America and space to be the individual you are. If you like these characteristics, this neighborhood may fit you. With just 11.27 residents per square mile, Spickard / Brimson is less crowded than 96.9% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: People
If you're looking for a great spot to raise a family, then look no
further than the Spickard / Brimson neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's
analysis found that the combination of good quality public schools,
above-average safety from crime, and a high rate of home ownership in
predominantly single-family homes, help make this neighborhood
among the top 12.8% of family-friendly neighborhoods
across the state of Missouri. In addition, there are a high proportion
of other families with school-aged children living here, making it easy
for parents and their children to socialize and develop a sense of community
support. In addition, families here highly value education, as is reflected
by the strength of the local schools, in part due to the educational
attainment of the parents here, who vote in support of the public schools.
