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
Of note is NeighborhoodScout's research finding that the
Brower Ave / Oceanside Rd neighborhood has some of the lowest rates of children
living in poverty of any neighborhood in the United States. In a nation
where approximately 1 in 4 children are living in poverty, the
Brower Ave / Oceanside Rd community truly stands out from the rest in this regard.
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 Brower Ave / Oceanside Rd neighborhood: a neighborhood in which more
"urban sophisticates" live than 98.9% 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 and highly educated executives.
Notable & Unique: Diversity

Italian and Russian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 27.1% of
this neighborhood's residents have Italian ancestry and 5.6% have Russian ancestry.
Brower Ave / Oceanside Rd is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 0.4% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Yiddish at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 98.8% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
The freedom of moving to new places versus the comfort of home. How much
and how often people move not only can create diverse and worldly neighborhoods,
but simultaneously it can produce a loss of intimacy with one's surroundings
and a lack of connectedness to one's neighbors. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive
research has identified this neighborhood as unique with regard to the
transience of its populace.
More residents of the Brower Ave / Oceanside Rd neighborhood live here

neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
