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
Do you like a coastal setting? If so, this neighborhood may be to your liking.
The Shore Acres neighborhood is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet.
Often such coastal places have amenities and recreational activities on the waterfront
that are attractive to residents and visitors alike.
In addition to being coastal, Shore Acres 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.
Notable & Unique: People
Wealth makes most things in life easier, and a few things harder.
If you are wealthy and enjoy keeping up with the Jones', this neighborhood
will interest you. In fact, according to NeighborhoodScout's research,
the Shore Acres neighborhood is wealthier than 95.7%
of the neighborhoods in the United States. Residents here are truly in
a unique situation even when compared to other Americans, based on the
sheer amount of wealth concentrated here. Even in times of economic
downturn, residents of this neighborhood, as a group, suffered less
and recovered more quickly. This is indeed a stand-out characteristic
of this neighborhood.
As one would expect in a considerably wealthy neighborhood such as this,
Shore Acres also has one of the lowest ratings of child
poverty in the nation.
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 Shore Acres neighborhood: a neighborhood in which more
"urban sophisticates" live than 98.5% 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 highly educated executives and families with school-aged children.
Also, some neighborhoods have residents that are more educated than others. But
in this neighborhood there is a dramatic difference. NeighborhoodScout's
exclusive analysis reveals that 31.7% of the adults here have
earned a Masters degree, medical degree, Ph.D. or law degree. This is a
higher rate of people with a graduate degree than is found in
95.5% of U.S. neighborhoods, where the average American
neighborhood has 8.4% of its adults with a graduate degree. If you are
highly educated, you may have much in common with many of your neighbors here.
