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 Albany,
the Loudonville 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 Loudonville neighborhood has more
Irish and Canadian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 38.0% of
this neighborhood's residents have Irish ancestry and 2.1% have Canadian ancestry.
Loudonville is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 4.3% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak French at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher

Notable & Unique: People
If knowledge is power, then imagine the cumulative power of one neighborhood
where many of the adults have earned an advanced degree, such as a Masters,
law degree, medical degree, or even a Ph.D. This is certainly the case in
the Loudonville neighborhood, where 42.2% have
earned an advanced degree. Compare that to the average neighborhood in
America, where just 8.4% of adults have completed a post-graduate degree,
and you can see why this neighborhood is a stand out. In fact, this neighborhood
has a higher rate of adults with an advanced degree than 98.7%
of the neighborhoods in America.
In addition, think about the people you know personally. How many of them would
purchase box seats to opening night at the symphony? How many of them
regularly attend gallery openings, or are the first to reserve tickets
to opening night at the ballet? If they're like most of us, they don't
do any of these things. But if you're among an exclusive crowd of wealthy
and refined patrons of the arts, then you'll feel right at home in
the Loudonville neighborhood: a neighborhood in which more
"urban sophisticates" live than 98.2% of neighborhoods
