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 Ramah,
the Town Center neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.

Ramah Town Center is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 27.7% of its residents five years old and above primarily

In addition, vacant homes and apartments are a significant characteristic of this neighborhood. In fact, with 53.4% of the residential real estate vacant, the Ramah Town Center neighborhood claims the distinction of having a higher vacancy rate than 98.9% of the neighborhoods in America.
