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: Real Estate
Bellmore Town Center is a neighborhood that is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet.
Many times, such places have amenities that bring locals and visitors to the
waterfront for recreational activities or to check out the scenery.
In some densely populated areas that are less financially well-off, the neighborhood
waterfront can be relatively industrial and less open to recreation.
In addition to being coastal, Bellmore Town Center is a very nautical neighborhood,
meaning that it is somewhat historic, walkable, densely populated and
on the water. This gives the neighborhood a very nautical feel,
with some seaside and shipping feel, which some may really enjoy the sights
and sounds of.
In addition, owner-occupied real estate dominates the Bellmore Town Center neighborhood. In fact, according to NeighborhoodScout research, the percentage of residential real estate occupied by its owner is higher here than in 96.0% of neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Bellmore Town Center neighborhood has more
Greek and Russian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 4.3% of
this neighborhood's residents have Greek ancestry and 7.2% have Russian ancestry.
Bellmore Town Center is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.1% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Greek at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 97.8% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: People
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 Bellmore Town Center neighborhood: a neighborhood in which more
"urban sophisticates" live than 99.2% of neighborhoods
across the U.S. Here, your neighbors are defined as having urbane
tastes in literature, music, live theatre and the arts. They are wealthy,
educated, travel in style, and live a big city lifestyle whether or
not they live in or near a big city.
In addition to being an excellent choice for urban sophisticates, this
neighborhood is also a very good choice for families with school-aged children.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
