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 Anaconda,
the Warm Springs neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
A unique way of commuting is simply not to. And in the Warm Springs
neighborhood, analysis shows that 25.5% of the residents work
from home, avoiding a commute altogether. This may not seem like a large number,
but it is a higher proportion of people working from home than is found in
99.7% of the neighborhoods in the United States.
One thing NeighborhoodScout's research reveals is that the wealthier and/or
more isolated the neighborhood, the greater the proportion of residents who
choose to work from home.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Warm Springs neighborhood has more
Yugoslav and Finnish ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 1.5% of
this neighborhood's residents have Yugoslav ancestry and 2.0% have Finnish ancestry.
Warm Springs is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 0.9% 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 98.3% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
Each year, fewer and fewer Americans make their living as farmers, foresters,
or fishers. But the Warm Springs 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 98.4% of all American neighborhoods. This is truly a unique
cultural characteristic of this neighborhood.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
Unpopulated, and rural, the Warm Springs neighborhood is one of the least crowded neighborhoods in all of America. If you like open space, no traffic, and lots of room, this neighborhood may be just what you are looking for. According to NeighborhoodScout's leading research, this neighborhood is less densely populated than 98.4% of the neighborhoods in America.
In addition, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Warm Springs 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 36.6%, which is higher than 96.5% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Car Ownership
Most American households own a car or other vehicle. Many own two cars
or perhaps three. In the United States, it is useful to have an automobile
not only for commuting, but also for shopping and getting to other services
one needs. But NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed that households in
the Warm Springs neighborhood have a highly unusual car ownership.
Residents of this neighborhood must really love automobiles. NeighborhoodScout's
Analysis reveals that 36.4% of the households here have four, five,
or more cars. That is more cars per household than in 98.4% of
the neighborhoods in the nation.
Notable & Unique: People
Of particular note, 9.9% of the people in the Warm Springs
neighborhood currently reside in a correction facility, held due to
punishment for a crime.
