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.

Whether walking, biking, riding, or driving, the length of one's commute
is an important factor for one's quality of life. The Brookville Blvd / Conduit Hwy
neighborhood stands out for its commute length, according to NeighborhoodScout's

of you for yourself and your family. The residents of the
Brookville Blvd / Conduit Hwy neighborhood unfortunately have the distinction of having,
on average, a longer commute than most any neighborhood in America.
19.4% of commuters here travel more than one hour just one-way

round-trip commutes is higher than NeighborhoodScout found in 99.8%
of all neighborhoods in America.

Brookville Blvd / Conduit Hwy is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 3.0% of its residents five years old and above primarily
