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: Diversity
Did you know that the S Bryant Ave / Del Rd neighborhood has more
Scots-Irish and Native American ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 6.8% of
this neighborhood's residents have Scots-Irish ancestry and 7.8% have Native American ancestry.
S Bryant Ave / Del Rd is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 0.3% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Native American languages at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 96.1% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: People
The S Bryant Ave / Del Rd neighborhood is unique for having just
5.1% of adults here having earned a bachelor's degree.
This is a lower rate of college graduates than NeighborhoodScout found
in 95.9% of America's neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
The government often provides some of the more stable jobs in the economy.
From local, to state, to federal government workers, the government can
also be a major employer. What NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed, is
that the S Bryant Ave / Del Rd neighborhood in particular stands out
when compared nationally for the proportion of its working residents who
are employed by the government. At 12.5% of its workforce, this
neighborhood has a greater concentration of government workers than
95.0% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, this S Bryant Ave / Del Rd neighborhood has earned the amazing distinction of having one of the highest rates of detached, single-family homes of any neighborhood in the U.S. With 99.1% of the residential real estate here made up of free-standing single-family homes, there is a greater proportion of single-family homes here than in 98.5% of all neighborhoods in America.
Furthermore, most neighborhoods have a mixture of ages of homes in them, from new to old, but this neighborhood stands out due to its concentration of residential real estate built in one time frame: from 1940 through 1969, generally considered older, well-established homes. This was a busy time in America for home construction. After the end of World War II, as GIs came home, bought newly built homes on the edges of cities with the help of the GI Bill, and began their families. This housing era generally coincides with the 'Baby Boom' generation (1945 - 1964), and many baby boomers grew up in homes built in this era. But what is so interesting about the S Bryant Ave / Del Rd neighborhood, is that an incredible 82.1% of the homes here were built in this era. So when you walk its streets or drive through, this neighborhood has a look and feel that harkens to that era in American life, a very important slice of Americana.
