The way a neighborhood looks and feels when you walk or drive around it, from

Notable & Unique: Car Ownership
We Americans love our cars. Not only are they a necessity for most Americans
due to the shape of our neighborhoods and the distances between where we
live, work, shop, and go to school, but we also fancy them. As a result,
most households in America have one, two, or three cars. But NeighborhoodScout's
exclusive analysis shows that the La Plata neighborhood has
a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.
Residents of this neighborhood must really love automobiles. NeighborhoodScout's
Analysis reveals that 33.2% of the households here have four, five,
or more cars. That is more cars per household than in 98.5% of
the neighborhoods in the nation.

Native American and Scots-Irish ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 6.5% of
this neighborhood's residents have Native American ancestry and 3.9% have Scots-Irish ancestry.
La Plata is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 4.7% 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 99.6% of the neighborhoods in America.

Notable & Unique: People
If you're looking for a great spot to raise a family, then look no
further than the La Plata neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's
analysis found that the combination of good quality public schools,
above-average safety from crime, and a high rate of home ownership in
predominantly single-family homes, help make this neighborhood
among the top 14.2% of family-friendly neighborhoods
across the state of New Mexico. In addition, there are a high proportion
of other families with school-aged children living here, making it easy
for parents and their children to socialize and develop a sense of community
support. In addition, families here highly value education, as is reflected
by the strength of the local schools, in part due to the educational
attainment of the parents here, who vote in support of the public schools.
