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: Occupations
The Gruber Rd / Knox St neighborhood stands out nationally for having
a greater proportion of its residents active in the military than
99.9% of other U.S. neighborhoods. If you come here, you
will notice military people active in their jobs, going to and from work,
and in plain clothes out and about the neighborhood.
Furthermore, the Gruber Rd / Knox St neighborhood has a greater proportion of
government workers living in it than 99.3% of the neighborhoods
in America, according to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis. This is
a unique feature of this neighborhood, and one that shapes its character.
In addition, from major sales accounts to fast-food workers, sales and service employees
are often the backbone of the local economy. In the Gruber Rd / Knox St
neighborhood, they truly stand out. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis
identifies this neighborhood as having a higher percentage of sales and
service workers than 95.8% of all American neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: People
Astoundingly, NeighborhoodScout's research reveals that this single
neighborhood has a higher concentration of married couples living here
than 99.2% of all U.S. neighborhoods. Whether they have
school-aged children or not, married couples are the rule in the
Gruber Rd / Knox St 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.
In addition, one of the really interesting characteristics about the
Gruber Rd / Knox St neighborhood is that, according to NeighborhoodScout's
exclusive research, it is an excellent choice in which to reside for
college students. Due to its popularity among college students who
already choose to live here, its walkability, and its above average
safety from crime, the neighborhood is ideal for prospective or
already-enrolled college students. Between semesters and during
school breaks, you'll notice that the excitement here fluctuates with
the college seasons. Despite the excitement however, parents of college-age
children can rest easy knowing that this
neighborhood has an above average safety rating. For each of these
reasons, the neighborhood is rated among the
top 2.1% of college-friendly places to live in
the state of North Carolina.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
The freedom of moving to new places versus the comfort of home. How much
and how often people move not only can create diverse and worldly neighborhoods,
but simultaneously it can produce a loss of intimacy with one's surroundings
and a lack of connectedness to one's neighbors. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive
research has identified this neighborhood as unique with regard to the
transience of its populace.
In the Gruber Rd / Knox St neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 98.1% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
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 Gruber Rd / Knox St
neighborhood stands out for its commute length, according to NeighborhoodScout's
Residents of the Gruber Rd / Knox St neighborhood have the pleasure
of having one of the shortest commutes to work of any neighborhood in
America. 62.1% 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 96.1% of U.S. neighborhoods. Less time commuting
means more time for other things in life.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Significantly, 2.7% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Tagalog, which is the first language of the Philippine region, at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 95.2% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, renter-occupied real estate is dominant in the Gruber Rd / Knox St neighborhood. The percentage of rental real estate here, according to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, is 98.6%, which is higher than 99.0% of the neighborhoods in America. If you were to buy and live in the property you bought here, you would be almost alone in doing so.
