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 Grace neighborhood has more
Scots-Irish and Scottish ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 8.2% of
this neighborhood's residents have Scots-Irish ancestry and 8.9% have Scottish ancestry.
Grace is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.9% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak French at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 95.2% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: People
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 Grace neighborhood, where 34.1% 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 96.6%
of the neighborhoods in America.
In addition, if you are planning to retire in North Carolina, this neighborhood
should be on your must-see list. For many reasons, Grace
may be considered a retiree's dream neighborhood. According to NeighborhoodScout's
exclusive analysis and metrics, it's peaceful and quiet, has above
average safety from crime compared to other neighborhoods in North Carolina,
while also offering a diverse range of housing options. This, along with
the vibrant mix of very educated seniors and other age groups who choose
to live here, makes the neighborhood more
retiree-friendly than 95.6% of neighborhoods in
NC. If a North Carolina retirement is in your future, this neighborhood
should be one of the places you visit.
In addition to being an excellent choice for active retirees, this
neighborhood is also a very good choice for college students, highly educated executives and urban sophisticates.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
In the Grace neighborhood, many people's commute means
walking from the bedroom to the home office. NeighborhoodScout's analysis
found that 11.9% of residents worked from home. This may not
seem like a large number, but Scout's research shows that this is a higher
percentage of people working from home than 96.2% of the
neighborhoods in America. Often people who work from home are engaged in
the creative or technological economy, such as is found in areas around Boston,
and in Silicon Valley. Other times, people may be engaged in other businesses
like trading stocks from home, or running a small beauty salon.
