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: People
An extraordinary 36.9% of the residents of the
Sweet Home Rd / Baird Hall neighborhood are currently enrolled in college. This is
such a large part of life in this neighborhood that the neighborhood changes
a great deal with the change of semesters and is far quieter during
the summer when many students are away.
In addition, the Sweet Home Rd / Baird Hall neighborhood has a greater percentage
of children living in poverty (67.0%) than found in
97.3% of all U.S. neighborhoods. Children living in poverty
is one of the challenges facing America, and the world, and in this
neighborhood in particular, the problem can be considered acute.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
The Sweet Home Rd / Baird Hall neighborhood is very densely populated compared to most U.S. neighborhoods. In fact, with 39,230 persons per square mile in the neighborhood, it is more packed with people than 98.0% of the nation's neighborhoods.
In addition, the Sweet Home Rd / Baird Hall neighborhood is very unique in that it has one of the highest proportions of one, two, or no bedroom real estate of any neighborhood in America. Most neighborhoods have a mixture of home or apartment sizes from small to large, but here the concentration of studios and other small living spaces is at near-record heights. With 86.2% of the real estate here of this small size, this most assuredly is a notable feature that makes this neighborhood unique, along with just a handful of other neighborhoods in the U.S. that share this characteristic.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
Do you like to be surrounded by people from all over the country or world,
with different perspectives and life experiences? Or do you instead prefer
to be in a neighborhood where most residents have lived there for a long
time, creating a sense of cohesiveness? NeighborhoodScout's analysis
reveals that this neighborhood stands out among American neighborhoods
for the uniqueness of the mobility of its residents.
In the Sweet Home Rd / Baird Hall neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 97.1% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Sweet Home Rd / Baird Hall neighborhood has more
Ukrainian and Asian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 1.6% of
this neighborhood's residents have Ukrainian ancestry and 21.7% have Asian ancestry.
Sweet Home Rd / Baird Hall is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 5.1% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Korean at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 98.9% of the neighborhoods in America.
