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.

Did you know that the Mount Hope / Bunker Hill neighborhood has more
Swiss ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 5.4% of
this neighborhood's residents have Swiss ancestry.
Mount Hope / Bunker Hill is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 23.7% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak German at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.9% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
Would you like to be able to ride your bike to work? If you are attracted
to the idea of getting a little exercise of the two-wheeled type while

But which neighborhood you live in can make this either impossible, or
alternatively, a great and realistic option. NeighborhoodScout's analysis
revealed that the Mount Hope / Bunker Hill neighborhood is a fantastic
option for bicycle commuters, as 14.7% of commuters here do ride
their bikes to and from work on a daily basis. This is a higher amount
than we found in 99.8% of the neighborhoods in America.
Also, a unique way of commuting is simply not to. And in the Mount Hope / Bunker Hill

from home, avoiding a commute altogether. This may not seem like a large number,
but it is a higher proportion of people working from home than is found in
98.4% of the neighborhoods in the United States.
One thing NeighborhoodScout's research reveals is that the wealthier and/or
more isolated the neighborhood, the greater the proportion of residents who
choose to work from home.
