shop signs are in multiple languages. This particular neighborhood in Alliance,
the E Broadway St / S Arch Ave neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it

concentrations of divorcees living here than of any neighborhood, a
higher concentration than NeighborhoodScout found in 99.8%

In resort or second-home vacation areas, this naturally occurs because homes and apartments are seasonally occupied, and empty for a portion of the year. In non-vacation or resort areas, however, this can be an indicator of property abandonment or a weak real estate market. The vacancy rate here is 32.2%, which is higher than 95.1% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
