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 Lowville,
the Village Center neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.

Did you know that the Lowville Village Center neighborhood has more
Swiss and French ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 2.2% of
this neighborhood's residents have Swiss ancestry and 12.3% have French ancestry.
Lowville Village Center is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 0.2% of its residents five years old and above primarily

Notable & Unique: Occupations
The Lowville Village Center neighborhood stands out nationally for having
a greater proportion of its residents active in the military than
98.1% 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.
Furthermore, 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 Lowville
Village Center neighborhood stands apart from most American neighborhood due
to the proportion of its residents still working in these fields. With 4.1%
of the workforce so employed, this neighborhood has a greater concentration
of such workers than 95.4% of U.S. neighborhoods.
