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: Diversity
Did you know that the Centenary neighborhood has more
Romanian and Russian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 2.0% of
this neighborhood's residents have Romanian ancestry and 7.3% have Russian ancestry.
Centenary is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 3.4% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Russian at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 98.4% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: People
If you come to know the people here, you will recognize that you're
in the company of one of the wealthiest communities in the nation. In
fact, a mere 2.4% of America's neighborhoods are wealthier than the
Centenary neighborhood. Real estate here is exceedingly
well-maintained, and similarly, tends to maintain its value over time.
The cars driven are mostly luxury brands like Mercedes, Audi, BMW, and
Lexus. If the public schools aren't up to snuff, the residents of this
neighborhood preferentially send their children to private preparatory
schools. Vacation to Disney? Yes, but equally popular are summers in Europe.
In addition, a majority of the adults in the Centenary neighborhood
are wealthy and educated executives. They own stately
homes that tend to maintain high real estate appreciation rates. Their
upper-level careers keep them busy, but allow them to live comfortably.
If you're an executive and want to keep similar company, consider settling
in this neighborhood, rated as an executive lifestyle
"best choice" neighborhood for New York by NeighborhoodScout's analysis,
which rated it as better for executive lifestyles than 96.9%
of the neighborhoods in New York.
In addition to being an excellent choice for highly educated executives, this
neighborhood is also a very good choice for urban sophisticates, families with school-aged children and active retirees.
Also, 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 Centenary neighborhood, where 35.0% 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 96.9%
of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, one way that the Centenary neighborhood really stands out, is that it has more large 4, 5, or additional bedroom homes and real estate than 98.5% of the neighborhoods in America. When you walk or drive around this neighborhood, you'll instantly notice the size of the homes here which definitely makes a strong visual statement.
Furthermore, real estate in the Centenary neighborhood is almost exclusively owner-occupied. NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals that this neighborhood has a higher rate of owner-occupied housing than is found in 95.5% of U.S. neighborhoods. If you are seeking to rent, this neighborhood may not have many options, but high rates of ownership often indicate stability in a neighborhood.
