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 Lamy neighborhood has more
Spanish and Scottish ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 3.1% of
this neighborhood's residents have Spanish ancestry and 6.7% have Scottish ancestry.
Lamy is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 0.7% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Hebrew at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 97.4% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
A unique way of commuting is simply not to. And in the Lamy
neighborhood, analysis shows that 15.9% of the residents work
from home, avoiding a commute altogether. This may not seem like a large number,
but it is a higher proportion of people working from home than is found in
98.7% of the neighborhoods in the United States.
One thing NeighborhoodScout's research reveals is that the wealthier and/or
more isolated the neighborhood, the greater the proportion of residents who
choose to work from home.
Notable & Unique: People
If you are planning to retire in New Mexico, this neighborhood
should be on your must-see list. For many reasons, Lamy
may be considered a retiree's dream neighborhood. According to NeighborhoodScout's
exclusive analysis and metrics, it's peaceful and quiet, has above
average safety from crime compared to other neighborhoods in New Mexico,
while also offering a diverse range of housing options. This, along with
the vibrant mix of very educated seniors and other age groups who choose
to live here, makes the neighborhood more
retiree-friendly than 98.0% of neighborhoods in
NM. If a New Mexico retirement is in your future, this neighborhood
should be one of the places you visit.
In addition to being an excellent choice for active retirees, this
neighborhood is also a very good choice for families with school-aged children and highly educated executives.
In addition, the rate of college educated adults in the Lamy neighborhood
is a unique characteristic of the neighborhood. 66.2% of
adults here have received at least a 4-year bachelor's degree, compared to
the average neighborhood in America, which has 22.6% of the adults with a
bachelor's degree. The rate here is higher than NeighborhoodScout found in
95.0% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
One of the notable things about Lamy is that it is one of the quietest neighborhoods in America, according to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis and quantitative rating of quietness. When you are here, you will find it to be very quiet. If quiet and peaceful are your cup of tea, you may have found a great place for you.
In addition, some neighborhoods are made up of apartments. Some consist of row houses, and most - by far - consist of a mixture of housing types. But the Lamy neighborhood stands out due to the total dominance of detached, single-family homes here. There are nearly no other types of residential real estate in the neighborhood. In fact, this neighborhood has a higher proportion of single-family homes in its real estate stock than 95.9% of all American neighborhoods.
