Echo Lake / Oak Grove is a suburban neighborhood (based on population density) located in East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania.

Echo Lake / Oak Grove real estate is primarily made up of medium sized (three or four bedroom) to small (studio to two bedroom) single-family homes and townhomes. Most of the residential real estate is owner occupied. Many of the residences in the Echo Lake / Oak Grove neighborhood are established but not old, having been built between 1970 and 1999. A number of residences were also built between 2000 and the present.

Vacant apartments or homes are a major fact of life in Echo Lake / Oak Grove. The current real estate vacancy rate here is 37.5%. This is higher than the rate of vacancies in 96.7% of all U.S. neighborhoods. A relatively large percentage of housing here is seasonally occupied (30.4%). This can occur in vacation areas, and occasionally it is also found in neighborhoods that are primarily filled with college students, as some apartments could be vacant when school is not in session. If you live here year round, you may find that a number of buildings in your neighborhood are actually empty.

Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

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 East Stroudsburg, the Echo Lake / Oak Grove neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.

Notable & Unique: Length of Commute

Whether walking, biking, riding, or driving, the length of one's commute is an important factor for one's quality of life. The Echo Lake / Oak Grove neighborhood stands out for its commute length, according to NeighborhoodScout's analysis. Long commutes can be brutal. They take time, money, and energy, leaving less of you for yourself and your family. The residents of the Echo Lake / Oak Grove neighborhood unfortunately have the distinction of having, on average, a longer commute than most any neighborhood in America. 30.0% of commuters here travel more than one hour just one-way to work. That is more than two hours per day. This percentage with two-hour + round-trip commutes is higher than NeighborhoodScout found in 100.0% of all neighborhoods in America.

Notable & Unique: Diversity

Did you know that the Echo Lake / Oak Grove neighborhood has more Slovak and Brazilian ancestry people living in it than nearly any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 2.0% of this neighborhood's residents have Slovak ancestry and 0.9% have Brazilian ancestry.

Echo Lake / Oak Grove is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 2.6% of its residents five years old and above primarily speak Japanese at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher than 99.2% of the neighborhoods in America.

Notable & Unique: Real Estate

Despite all of the residential real estate here in the Echo Lake / Oak Grove 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 37.5%, which is higher than 96.7% of all U.S. neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation

Our research revealed that more commuters here take the bus to work (15.9% ride the bus) than 95.3% of all American neighborhoods. If you like the idea of leaving your car and home and hopping the bus to work, this might be a good neighborhood for you to consider.


The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income

How wealthy a neighborhood is, from very wealthy, to middle income, to low income is very formative with regard to the personality and character of a neighborhood. Equally important is the rate of people, particularly children, who live below the federal poverty line. In some wealthy gated communities, the areas immediately surrounding can have high rates of childhood poverty, which indicates other social issues. NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals both aspects of income and poverty for this neighborhood.

The neighbors in the Echo Lake / Oak Grove neighborhood in East Stroudsburg are middle-income, making it a moderate income neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals that this neighborhood has a higher income than 56.9% of the neighborhoods in America. In addition, 15.9% of the children seventeen and under living in this neighborhood are living below the federal poverty line, which is a lower rate of childhood poverty than is found in 51.2% of America's neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

A neighborhood is far different if it is dominated by enlisted military personnel rather than people who earn their living by farming. It is also different if most of the neighbors are clerical support or managers. What is wonderful is the sheer diversity of neighborhoods, allowing you to find the type that fits your lifestyle and aspirations.

In the Echo Lake / Oak Grove neighborhood, 42.6% of the working population is employed in executive, management, and professional occupations. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants, with 24.5% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in manufacturing and laborer occupations (18.7%), and 14.2% in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations.

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Culture is the shared learned behavior of peoples. Undeniably, different ethnicities and ancestries have different cultural traditions, and as a result, neighborhoods with concentrations of residents of one or another ethnicities or ancestries will express those cultures. It is what makes the North End in Boston so fun to visit for the Italian restaurants, bakeries, culture, and charm, and similarly, why people enjoy visiting Chinatown in San Francisco.

In the Echo Lake / Oak Grove neighborhood in East Stroudsburg, PA, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Irish (17.3%). There are also a number of people of German ancestry (12.6%), and residents who report Italian roots (11.3%), and some of the residents are also of Puerto Rican ancestry (8.2%), along with some Polish ancestry residents (6.4%), among others. In addition, 22.4% of the residents of this neighborhood were born in another country.

The Neighbors: Languages

The languages spoken by people in this neighborhood are diverse. These are tabulated as the languages people preferentially speak when they are at home with their families. The most common language spoken in the Echo Lake / Oak Grove neighborhood is English, spoken by 68.7% of households. Other important languages spoken here include Spanish, African languages, Japanese and Polish.

Getting to Work

Even if your neighborhood is walkable, you may still have to drive to your place of work. Some neighborhoods are located where many can get to work in just a few minutes, while others are located such that most residents have a long and arduous commute. The greatest number of commuters in Echo Lake / Oak Grove neighborhood spend longer than one hour commuting one-way to work (30.0% of working residents), one of the longer commutes in America, which is a potential downside for residents of this neighborhood.

Here most residents (81.2%) drive alone in a private automobile to get to work. In addition, quite a number also ride the bus to get to work (15.9%) . In a neighborhood like this, as in most of the nation, many residents find owning a car useful for getting to work.
