This is higher than the rate of vacancies in 83.1% of all U.S. neighborhoods. In addition, most vacant housing here is vacant year round.

Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

The way a neighborhood looks and feels when you walk or drive around it, from its setting, its buildings, and its flavor, can make all the difference. This neighborhood has some really cool things about the way it looks and feels as revealed by NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research. This might include anything from the housing stock to the types of households living here to how people get around.

Notable & Unique: People

One of the most interesting things about the Pomona / Terra Cotta neighborhood is that it has a greater concentration of residents who live alone than most all neighborhoods in America. With 48.7% of the households here made up of people living alone, NeighborhoodScout's research reveals that this is a larger proportion of people living alone than in 96.4% of the neighborhoods in America.

In addition, an extraordinary 12.7% of the residents of the Pomona / Terra Cotta neighborhood are currently enrolled in college. This is such a large part of life in this neighborhood that the neighborhood changes a great deal with the change of semesters and is far quieter during the summer when many students are away.

Notable & Unique: Diversity

Did you know that the Pomona / Terra Cotta neighborhood has more Scots-Irish ancestry people living in it than nearly any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 3.3% of this neighborhood's residents have Scots-Irish ancestry.

Pomona / Terra Cotta is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.5% of its residents five years old and above primarily speak Mon-Khmer, which is the dominant language of Cambodia, at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher than 98.8% of the neighborhoods in America.

Notable & Unique: Real Estate

The Pomona / Terra Cotta neighborhood is very unique in that it has one of the highest proportions of one, two, or no bedroom real estate of any neighborhood in America. Most neighborhoods have a mixture of home or apartment sizes from small to large, but here the concentration of studios and other small living spaces is at near-record heights. With 80.8% of the real estate here of this small size, this most assuredly is a notable feature that makes this neighborhood unique, along with just a handful of other neighborhoods in the U.S. that share this characteristic.


The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income

There are two complementary measures for understanding the income of a neighborhood's residents: the average and the extremes. While a neighborhood may be relatively wealthy overall, it is equally important to understand the rate of people - particularly children - who are living at or below the federal poverty line, which is extremely low income. Some neighborhoods with a lower average income may actually have a lower childhood poverty rate than another with a higher average income, and this helps us understand the conditions and character of a neighborhood.

The neighbors in the Pomona / Terra Cotta neighborhood in Greensboro are low income, making it among the lowest income neighborhoods in America. NeighborhoodScout's research shows that this neighborhood has an income lower than 88.0% of U.S. neighborhoods. With 20.9% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 58.2% of U.S. neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

A neighborhood is far different if it is dominated by enlisted military personnel rather than people who earn their living by farming. It is also different if most of the neighbors are clerical support or managers. What is wonderful is the sheer diversity of neighborhoods, allowing you to find the type that fits your lifestyle and aspirations.

In the Pomona / Terra Cotta neighborhood, 40.9% of the working population is employed in sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is manufacturing and laborer occupations, with 26.7% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in executive, management, and professional occupations (17.2%), and 15.2% in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations.

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Culture is shared learned behavior. We learn it from our parents, their parents, our houses of worship, and much of our culture – our learned behavior – comes from our ancestors. That is why ancestry and ethnicity can be so interesting and important to understand: places with concentrations of people of one or more ancestries often express those shared learned behaviors and this gives each neighborhood its own culture. Even different neighborhoods in the same city can have drastically different cultures.

In the Pomona / Terra Cotta neighborhood in Greensboro, NC, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Mexican (16.4%). There are also a number of people of English ancestry (6.1%), and residents who report German roots (5.3%), and some of the residents are also of Scots-Irish ancestry (3.3%), along with some Irish ancestry residents (2.9%), among others. In addition, 21.4% of the residents of this neighborhood were born in another country.

The Neighbors: Languages

The most common language spoken in the Pomona / Terra Cotta neighborhood is English, spoken by 75.5% of households. Some people also speak Spanish (18.9%).

Getting to Work

How you get to work – car, bus, train or other means – and how much of your day it takes to do so is a large quality of life and financial issue. Especially with gasoline prices rising and expected to continue doing so, the length and means of one's commute can be a financial burden. Some neighborhoods are physically located so that many residents have to drive in their own car, others are set up so many walk to work, or can take a train, bus, or bike. The greatest number of commuters in Pomona / Terra Cotta neighborhood spend under 15 minutes commuting one-way to work (50.4% of working residents), one of the shortest commutes across America.

Here most residents (77.2%) drive alone in a private automobile to get to work. In addition, quite a number also carpool with coworkers, friends, or neighbors to get to work (12.0%) . In a neighborhood like this, as in most of the nation, many residents find owning a car useful for getting to work.
