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: Modes of Transportation
In the Route 468 / Greenfield Rd neighborhood, carpooling is still a popular
way to get to and from work. NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals that
89.5% of commuters carpool here, which is more than in
99.9% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: People
In a nation where 1 out of every 4 children lives in poverty, the
Route 468 / Greenfield Rd neighborhood stands out as being ranked among
the lowest 0.1% of neighborhoods affected by this global
In addition, an interesting characteristic about the Route 468 / Greenfield Rd neighborhood
is that there are more incarcerated people living here than 99.8%
of neighborhoods in the U.S. The United States has the highest rate of
incarceration in the world, currently with 1 out of every 100 adults in the
country are incarcerated as a punishment for crimes committed. The extremely
high incarceration rate of this neighborhood could mean that a prison, juvenile
detention facility or other correctional facility occupies a large proportion
of the neighborhood, or contains a large portion of the neighborhood's population.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research identifies the Route 468 / Greenfield Rd
neighborhood as having one of the highest concentrations of people employed
in manufacturing or as laborers of any neighborhood in America. In fact,
despite the loss of manufacturing jobs nationally, this neighborhood has
52.6% of its working residents employed in such fields, which is a
higher proportion than 99.6% of American neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Significantly, 1.1% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Native American languages at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 98.6% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
Do you like to be surrounded by people from all over the country or world,
with different perspectives and life experiences? Or do you instead prefer
to be in a neighborhood where most residents have lived there for a long
time, creating a sense of cohesiveness? NeighborhoodScout's analysis
reveals that this neighborhood stands out among American neighborhoods
for the uniqueness of the mobility of its residents.
In the Route 468 / Greenfield Rd neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 97.6% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
Notable & Unique: Length of Commute
Regardless of the means by which residents commute, this neighborhood has
a length of commute that is notable.
Residents of the Route 468 / Greenfield Rd neighborhood have the pleasure
of having one of the shortest commutes to work of any neighborhood in
America. 63.2% of the residents have a commute time from
home to work (one way) of less than fifteen minutes. This is a higher
proportion of residents enjoying a short trip to work than NeighborhoodScout
found in 96.4% of U.S. neighborhoods. Less time commuting
means more time for other things in life.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, 100.0% of the real estate in the Route 468 / Greenfield Rd neighborhood is occupied by renters, which is nearly the highest rate of renter occupancy of any neighborhood in America. Vacant homes and apartments are a significant characteristic of this neighborhood. In fact, with 71.4% of the residential real estate vacant, the Route 468 / Greenfield Rd neighborhood claims the distinction of having a higher vacancy rate than 99.7% 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.
