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 Herrera neighborhood has more
Spanish and Native American ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 4.1% of
this neighborhood's residents have Spanish ancestry and 16.2% have Native American ancestry.
Herrera is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 9.8% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Native American languages at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.8% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: People
An interesting characteristic about the Herrera neighborhood
is that there are more incarcerated people living here than 99.6%
of neighborhoods in the U.S. The United States has the highest rate of
incarceration in the world, currently with 1 out of every 100 adults in the
country are incarcerated as a punishment for crimes committed. The extremely
high incarceration rate of this neighborhood could mean that a prison, juvenile
detention facility or other correctional facility occupies a large proportion
of the neighborhood, or contains a large portion of the neighborhood's population.
In addition, the Herrera neighborhood is considered a solid choice
for executive lifestyles. NeighborhoodScout's analysis ranks it as
better than 92.2% of New Mexico neighborhoods
for executive living, based on the wealthy, educated professionals,
executives, and managers who choose to reside here, the spacious homes
that are prominent features of the real estate in the neighborhood,
and the high real estate appreciation rates found here relative to
other neighborhoods in the state.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
This neighborhood has wide open spaces, few people, and lots of space to stretch out. If you like locations that fit that description, you may like this neighborhood. Based on NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis, with only 15.62 people per square mile living here, this neighborhood is less crowded than 95.8% of America.
In addition, homes built from 2000 through today make up a higher proportion of the Herrera neighborhood's real estate landscape than 98.4% of the neighborhoods in America. When you are driving around this neighborhood, you'll notice right away that it is one of the newest built of any, with the smell of fresh paint, and the look of young landscaping nearly everywhere you look. In fact, 70.5% of the residential real estate here is classified as newer.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
The Herrera neighborhood stands out nationally for having
a greater proportion of its residents active in the military than
95.2% of other U.S. neighborhoods. If you come here, you

and in plain clothes out and about the neighborhood.
