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
We Americans love our cars. Not only are they a necessity for most Americans
due to the shape of our neighborhoods and the distances between where we
live, work, shop, and go to school, but we also fancy them. As a result,
most households in America have one, two, or three cars. But NeighborhoodScout's
exclusive analysis shows that the Mount Sinai Rd / University Station Rd neighborhood has
a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.
Residents of this neighborhood must really love automobiles. NeighborhoodScout's
Analysis reveals that 31.4% of the households here have four, five,
or more cars. That is more cars per household than in 98.7% of
the neighborhoods in the nation.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
A unique way of commuting is simply not to. And in the Mount Sinai Rd / University Station Rd
neighborhood, analysis shows that 15.7% 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
98.6% 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: People
A majority of the adults in the Mount Sinai Rd / University Station Rd neighborhood
are wealthy and educated executives. They own stately
homes that tend to maintain high real estate appreciation rates. Their
upper-level careers keep them busy, but allow them to live comfortably.

"best choice" neighborhood for North Carolina by NeighborhoodScout's analysis,
which rated it as better for executive lifestyles than 97.3%

In addition to being an excellent choice for highly educated executives, this
neighborhood is also a very good choice for families with school-aged children, active retirees and urban sophisticates.
In addition, some neighborhoods have residents that are more educated than others. But
in this neighborhood there is a dramatic difference. NeighborhoodScout's
exclusive analysis reveals that 35.1% of the adults here have
earned a Masters degree, medical degree, Ph.D. or law degree. This is a
higher rate of people with a graduate degree than is found in
97.0% of U.S. neighborhoods, where the average American
neighborhood has 8.4% of its adults with a graduate degree. If you are
highly educated, you may have much in common with many of your neighbors here.
Also, astoundingly, NeighborhoodScout's research reveals that this single
neighborhood has a higher concentration of married couples living here
than 96.9% of all U.S. neighborhoods. Whether they have
school-aged children or not, married couples are the rule in the
Mount Sinai Rd / University Station Rd neighborhood. If you are a married couple, you may find many
people here with a similar lifestyle, and perhaps common interests. But if
you are single, you might not find many other singles here.
