Guilderland Ave / Lilac St is a suburban neighborhood (based on population density) located in Schenectady, New York.

Guilderland Ave / Lilac St real estate is primarily made up of medium sized (three or four bedroom) to small (studio to two bedroom) single-family homes and apartment complexes/high-rise apartments. Most of the residential real estate is owner occupied. Many of the residences in the Guilderland Ave / Lilac St neighborhood are older, well-established, built between 1940 and 1969.

Guilderland Ave / Lilac St has a 11.5% vacancy rate, which is well above average compared to other U.S. neighborhoods (higher than 61.4% of American neighborhoods).

Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

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: Modes of Transportation

Our research reveals that 97.5% of commuters who live in the Guilderland Ave / Lilac St neighborhood get to work each day by driving alone in their automobiles, which is a higher proportion than 99.7% of U.S. neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Diversity

Did you know that the Guilderland Ave / Lilac St neighborhood has more Italian and Dutch ancestry people living in it than nearly any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 37.2% of this neighborhood's residents have Italian ancestry and 4.8% have Dutch ancestry.

Guilderland Ave / Lilac St is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 3.7% of its residents five years old and above primarily speak Italian at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher than 99.3% of the neighborhoods in America.

Notable & Unique: Occupations

What NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed, is that the Guilderland Ave / Lilac St neighborhood in particular stands out when compared nationally for the proportion of its working residents who are employed by the government. At 13.7% of its workforce, this neighborhood has a greater concentration of government workers than 96.1% of U.S. neighborhoods.


The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income

There are two complementary measures for understanding the income of a neighborhood's residents: the average and the extremes. While a neighborhood may be relatively wealthy overall, it is equally important to understand the rate of people - particularly children - who are living at or below the federal poverty line, which is extremely low income. Some neighborhoods with a lower average income may actually have a lower childhood poverty rate than another with a higher average income, and this helps us understand the conditions and character of a neighborhood.

The neighbors in the Guilderland Ave / Lilac St neighborhood in Schenectady are middle-income, making it a moderate income neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals that this neighborhood has a higher income than 49.2% of the neighborhoods in America. With 31.2% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 73.7% of U.S. neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

The old saying "you are what you eat" is true. But it is also true that you are what you do for a living. The types of occupations your neighbors have shape their character, and together as a group, their collective occupations shape the culture of a place.

In the Guilderland Ave / Lilac St neighborhood, 32.3% of the working population is employed in sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is executive, management, and professional occupations, with 26.7% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in manufacturing and laborer occupations (22.5%), and 18.4% in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations.

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Culture is the shared learned behavior of peoples. Undeniably, different ethnicities and ancestries have different cultural traditions, and as a result, neighborhoods with concentrations of residents of one or another ethnicities or ancestries will express those cultures. It is what makes the North End in Boston so fun to visit for the Italian restaurants, bakeries, culture, and charm, and similarly, why people enjoy visiting Chinatown in San Francisco.

In the Guilderland Ave / Lilac St neighborhood in Schenectady, NY, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Italian (37.2%).

Getting to Work

Even if your neighborhood is walkable, you may still have to drive to your place of work. Some neighborhoods are located where many can get to work in just a few minutes, while others are located such that most residents have a long and arduous commute. The greatest number of commuters in Guilderland Ave / Lilac St neighborhood spend between 15 and 30 minutes commuting one-way to work (35.6% of working residents), which is shorter than the time spent commuting to work for most Americans.
