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
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 1.5% of America's neighborhoods are wealthier than the
Stony Brook U / E Loop Rd 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.
As one would expect in a considerably wealthy neighborhood such as this,
Stony Brook U / E Loop Rd also has one of the lowest ratings of child
poverty in the nation.
In addition, neighborhoodScout's analysis shows that the Stony Brook U / E Loop Rd
neighborhood has a greater concentration of residents currently enrolled
in college than 99.7% of the neighborhoods in the U.S. With
85.4% of the population here attending college, this is very
much a college-focused neighborhood.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
In the Stony Brook U / E Loop Rd neighborhood, walking to work is a real
option for many. In fact, NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research reveals
walking to and from work is the chosen way to commute for 52.6%
of residents here. This is a higher proportion of walking commuters than
we found in 99.7% of American neighborhoods. Get ready
to put on your walking shoes if you move here!
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
Do you like to be surrounded by people from all over the country or world,
with different perspectives and life experiences? Or do you instead prefer
to be in a neighborhood where most residents have lived there for a long
time, creating a sense of cohesiveness? NeighborhoodScout's analysis
reveals that this neighborhood stands out among American neighborhoods
for the uniqueness of the mobility of its residents.
In the Stony Brook U / E Loop Rd neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 98.5% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Stony Brook U / E Loop Rd neighborhood has more
Asian and Haitian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 38.8% of
this neighborhood's residents have Asian ancestry and 2.5% have Haitian ancestry.
Stony Brook U / E Loop Rd is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 6.9% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Korean at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.3% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, renter-occupied real estate is dominant in the Stony Brook U / E Loop Rd neighborhood. The percentage of rental real estate here, according to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, is 98.6%, which is higher than 99.0% of the neighborhoods in America. If you were to buy and live in the property you bought here, you would be almost alone in doing so. With a real estate vacancy rate of only 0.0%, the Stony Brook U / E Loop Rd neighborhood has a lower vacancy rate than 100.0% of U.S. neighborhoods, a very elite group. Such a low vacancy rate may indicate very strong real estate demand in the neighborhood combined with some impediments to increasing supply, such as zoning or existing density of development, among other potential reasons.
