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: 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
reducing your carbon footprint, bicycling to work might be the answer.
But which neighborhood you live in can make this either impossible, or
alternatively, a great and realistic option. NeighborhoodScout's analysis
revealed that the NE 33rd Ave / NE Prescott St neighborhood is a fantastic
option for bicycle commuters, as 19.5% of commuters here do ride
their bikes to and from work on a daily basis. This is a higher amount
than we found in 99.9% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Diversity

Canadian and Scottish ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 1.6% of
this neighborhood's residents have Canadian ancestry and 5.7% have Scottish ancestry.
NE 33rd Ave / NE Prescott St is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 0.4% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Hebrew at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 95.7% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: People
If you're a regular supporter of the arts and enjoy outings to the
theatre, weekend boutique-ing, or even a finely aged wine with dinner,
than you're in good company with the people of the NE 33rd Ave / NE Prescott St
neighborhood. This neighborhood is uniquely immersed with more "urban
sophisticates" than 97.3% of neighborhoods across the
country. The people here truly stand out as a class among their own.
They are an exclusive community characterized by refined tastes,
cultural inclinations, and the means to live well. Urban sophisticates
live a big city lifestyle, whether or not they live in or near a big
city. They are educated executives or managers by week, and serial
patrons of the arts by weekend. If this lifestyle pertains to you,
than you'll certainly feel right at home in the NE 33rd Ave / NE Prescott St
In addition to being an excellent choice for urban sophisticates, this
neighborhood is also a very good choice for highly educated executives and college students.
In addition, the rate of college educated adults in the NE 33rd Ave / NE Prescott St neighborhood
is a unique characteristic of the neighborhood. 70.1% of
adults here have received at least a 4-year bachelor's degree, compared to
the average neighborhood in America, which has 22.6% of the adults with a
bachelor's degree. The rate here is higher than NeighborhoodScout found in
96.4% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
Executives, managers and professionals make up 63.0% of the workforce
in the NE 33rd Ave / NE Prescott St neighborhood which, according to
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis, is a higher proportion of such
high-level people than is found in 95.0% of the neighborhoods

Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, with a real estate vacancy rate of only 0.6%, the NE 33rd Ave / NE Prescott St neighborhood has a lower vacancy rate than 96.4% of U.S. neighborhoods, a very elite group. Such a low vacancy rate may indicate very strong real estate demand in the neighborhood combined with some impediments to increasing supply, such as zoning or existing density of development, among other potential reasons.
Furthermore, 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 NE 33rd Ave / NE Prescott St neighborhood stands out on a national scale for the sheer concentration of historic residences it contains: 69.1% of the residential real estate here was built from 1939 or earlier, some much earlier.
