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 Nashua,
the Daniel Webster Hwy / Bluestone Dr neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Daniel Webster Hwy / Bluestone Dr neighborhood has more
Brazilian and French Canadian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 3.1% of
this neighborhood's residents have Brazilian ancestry and 8.2% have French Canadian ancestry.
Daniel Webster Hwy / Bluestone Dr is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 3.9% 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 99.7% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: People
Astoundingly, the Daniel Webster Hwy / Bluestone Dr neighborhood has one of the highest
concentrations of divorcees living here than of any neighborhood, a
higher concentration than NeighborhoodScout found in 98.8%
of U.S. neighborhoods. This may be because people living here divorce
more often than others, or that divorced people move here after they
become divorced. If you are divorced, you will be in good company in
this particular Nashua neighborhood.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, the Daniel Webster Hwy / Bluestone Dr 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 96.5% 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.
Furthermore, the real estate in the Daniel Webster Hwy / Bluestone Dr neighborhood really stands out in the way it looks for a unique reason: this neighborhood has a higher proportion of apartment complexes or high-rise apartments than nearly every neighborhood in the country. Most neighborhoods are a mixture of real estate and housing types, but here it is almost entirely dominated by big apartment buildings and complexes. In fact, 89.5% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 98.4% of American neighborhoods.
Also of note, 84.7% of the real estate in the Daniel Webster Hwy / Bluestone Dr neighborhood is occupied by renters, which is nearly the highest rate of renter occupancy of any neighborhood in America.
Finally, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the Daniel Webster Hwy / Bluestone Dr stands out as rather unique in having nearly all of its residential real estate built in one time period, namely between 1970 and 1999, generally considered to be established, but not old housing. What you'll sense when you look around or drive the streets of this neighborhood is that many of the residences look the same because of this similarity of age. In fact, 83.1% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
