Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

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.

Such building types define the real estate of neighborhoods dominated by small 2, 3, and 4 unit apartment buildings. Many are in older core neighborhoods of Eastern and Midwestern cities, or historic town centers in their hinterlands.

And, according to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive and first quantitative walkable score index, the Paterson Plank Rd / Webster Ave neighborhood is one of the most walkable neighborhoods in America.
