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 Adams,
the Henderson / Belleville neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Henderson / Belleville neighborhood has more
Czechoslovakian and Canadian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 3.6% of
this neighborhood's residents have Czechoslovakian ancestry and 1.6% have Canadian ancestry.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
It used to be that most Americans lived on the farm, or otherwise made their
living from the land, the forests, or the sea. With global trade and an
economy increasingly based on providing services to one another, fewer
people farm, fish or harvest timber now than at any time in American history.
But according to NeighborhoodScout's leading analysis, the
Henderson / Belleville neighborhood stands apart from most American neighborhood due
to the proportion of its residents still working in these fields. With 5.2%
of the workforce so employed, this neighborhood has a greater concentration
of such workers than 96.7% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Furthermore, the Henderson / Belleville neighborhood stands out nationally for having
a greater proportion of its residents active in the military than
95.8% 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: 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 32.92 people per square mile living here, this neighborhood is less crowded than 92.3% of America.
In addition, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Henderson / Belleville neighborhood, NeighborhoodScout has discovered that much of it is vacant. In resort or second-home vacation areas, this naturally occurs because homes and apartments are seasonally occupied, and empty for a portion of the year. In non-vacation or resort areas, however, this can be an indicator of property abandonment or a weak real estate market. The vacancy rate here is 56.5%, which is higher than 99.1% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
