Many things matter about a neighborhood, but the first thing most people notice
is the way a neighborhood looks and its particular character. For example, one
might notice whether the buildings all date from a certain time period or whether
shop signs are in multiple languages. This particular neighborhood in Eufaula,
the Longtown neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
One of the notable things about Longtown is that it is one of the quietest neighborhoods in America, according to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis and quantitative rating of quietness. When you are here, you will find it to be very quiet. If quiet and peaceful are your cup of tea, you may have found a great place for you.
In addition, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Longtown neighborhood, NeighborhoodScout has discovered that much of it is vacant. 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 51.7%, which is higher than 98.7% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Furthermore, the real estate in this neighborhood consists of more mobile homes than 96.2% of all neighborhoods in America, with 32.9% of the occupied housing here being classified as mobile homes. So if you are looking for a mobile home, or you like the look and feel of mobile home parks, this neighborhood might have the setting you desire.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Longtown neighborhood has more
English and Native American ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 22.3% of
this neighborhood's residents have English ancestry and 3.4% have Native American ancestry.
Longtown is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 0.2% 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 95.1% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
Our research shows that more people carpool to work here in the
Longtown (20.5%) than in 95.3% of the
neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
The freedom of moving to new places versus the comfort of home. How much
and how often people move not only can create diverse and worldly neighborhoods,
but simultaneously it can produce a loss of intimacy with one's surroundings
and a lack of connectedness to one's neighbors. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive
research has identified this neighborhood as unique with regard to the
transience of its populace.
More residents of the Longtown neighborhood live here
today that also were living in this same neighborhood five years ago
than is found in 95.1% of U.S. neighborhoods. This neighborhood
is really made up of people who know each other, don't move often, and
have lived here in this very neighborhood for quite a while.
