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 NW 36th St / N Walker Ave neighborhood has more
Lebanese and Native American ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 1.7% of
this neighborhood's residents have Lebanese ancestry and 4.7% have Native American ancestry.
NW 36th St / N Walker Ave is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 0.6% 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 97.5% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: People
Some neighborhoods have residents that are more educated than others. But
in this neighborhood there is a dramatic difference. NeighborhoodScout's
exclusive analysis reveals that 37.7% of the adults here have
earned a Masters degree, medical degree, Ph.D. or law degree. This is a
higher rate of people with a graduate degree than is found in
97.7% of U.S. neighborhoods, where the average American
neighborhood has 8.4% of its adults with a graduate degree. If you are
highly educated, you may have much in common with many of your neighbors here.
In addition, think about the people you know personally. How many of them would
purchase box seats to opening night at the symphony? How many of them
regularly attend gallery openings, or are the first to reserve tickets
to opening night at the ballet? If they're like most of us, they don't
do any of these things. But if you're among an exclusive crowd of wealthy
and refined patrons of the arts, then you'll feel right at home in
the NW 36th St / N Walker Ave neighborhood: a neighborhood in which more
"urban sophisticates" live than 96.6% of neighborhoods
across the U.S. Here, your neighbors are defined as having urbane
tastes in literature, music, live theatre and the arts. They are wealthy,
educated, travel in style, and live a big city lifestyle whether or
not they live in or near a big city.
In addition to being an excellent choice for urban sophisticates, this
neighborhood is also a very good choice for highly educated executives.
Also, with more than 2.2% of residents living with a same sex partner,
NW 36th St / N Walker Ave is truly a neighborhood that stands out from the rest in
this regard. In fact, exclusive analysis by NeighborhoodScout reveals that
this neighborhood has a greater concentration of same sex couples than
96.0% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Length of Commute
Regardless of the means by which residents commute, this neighborhood has
a length of commute that is notable.
Residents of the NW 36th St / N Walker Ave neighborhood have the pleasure
of having one of the shortest commutes to work of any neighborhood in
America. 59.6% of the residents have a commute time from
home to work (one way) of less than fifteen minutes. This is a higher
proportion of residents enjoying a short trip to work than NeighborhoodScout
found in 95.1% of U.S. neighborhoods. Less time commuting
means more time for other things in life.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, do you watch 'This Old House' on Public Television? Do you love the idea of fixing up a Colonial or Victorian era home, complete with the charm of yesteryear? Do you like to stroll or drive streets lined with gracious older residences? If you found yourself nodding yes to any of these questions, you are going to be interested in this unique neighborhood. The NW 36th St / N Walker Ave neighborhood stands out on a national scale for the sheer concentration of historic residences it contains: 67.5% of the residential real estate here was built from 1939 or earlier, some much earlier. This is a greater concentration of historic homes than 97.3% of the neighborhoods in the United States.
