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: Diversity
Did you know that the Whiting neighborhood has more
Romanian and Ukrainian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 5.3% of
this neighborhood's residents have Romanian ancestry and 1.6% have Ukrainian ancestry.
Whiting is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.8% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Greek at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 98.9% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: People
The types of households in a neighborhood can tell a lot about the character
and lifestyle of those living here. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis
reveals that this neighborhood, above nearly every neighborhood in America,
has a greater percentage of its residents living alone: 52.2%. This
is a higher percent living alone than we found in 97.7% of
all U.S. neighborhoods. Often residents who live alone are new arrivals
to an area who are single, and often senior citizens who have lost a spouse.
In addition, if you're planning where to retire, the Whiting neighborhood in
Manchester Township is a great option to consider. According to NeighborhoodScout's
exclusive retirement dream area analysis, it's peaceful and quiet, has
above average safety ratings compared to other neighborhoods in NJ,
offers a wide range of housing options, and has already attracted an
enviable mix of college educated seniors. This neighborhood ranks as better
for retirement living than 85.3% of the neighborhoods
in New Jersey. If you are considering retiring to New Jersey, this
is a good neighborhood to look at.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
The Whiting neighborhood stands out nationally for having
a greater proportion of its residents active in the military than
97.0% 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.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
Our research reveals that 94.3% of commuters who live in the
Whiting neighborhood get to work each day by driving
alone in their automobiles, which is a higher proportion than
96.9% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, if you love row houses and attached homes, you will probably really like the Whiting neighborhood. The ambiance, the charm, of row houses is something special. And in sheer abundance of row houses, this neighborhood truly stands out. The real estate here has a higher proportion of row houses and attached homes than nearly any neighborhood in America. In fact, 43.7% of the residential real estate here is classified as row houses and attached homes.
Furthermore, the Whiting 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 84.7% 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.
