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 Aquetong / Center Bridge neighborhood has more
British and Yugoslav ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 2.2% of
this neighborhood's residents have British ancestry and 0.7% have Yugoslav ancestry.
Aquetong / Center Bridge is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.8% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Gujarati, which is native to the Indian state of Gujarat, at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 98.4% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Car Ownership
We Americans love our cars. Not only are they a necessity for most Americans
due to the shape of our neighborhoods and the distances between where we
live, work, shop, and go to school, but we also fancy them. As a result,
most households in America have one, two, or three cars. But NeighborhoodScout's
exclusive analysis shows that the Aquetong / Center Bridge neighborhood has
a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.
Residents of this neighborhood must really love automobiles. NeighborhoodScout's
Analysis reveals that 22.8% of the households here have four, five,
or more cars. That is more cars per household than in 97.7% of
the neighborhoods in the nation.
Notable & Unique: People
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 Aquetong / Center Bridge neighborhood: a neighborhood in which more
"urban sophisticates" live than 96.5% 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 active retirees, highly educated executives and families with school-aged children.
In addition, if you come to know the people here, you will recognize that you're
in the company of one of the wealthiest communities in the nation. In
fact, a mere 4.4% of America's neighborhoods are wealthier than the
Aquetong / Center Bridge neighborhood. Real estate here is exceedingly
well-maintained, and similarly, tends to maintain its value over time.
The cars driven are mostly luxury brands like Mercedes, Audi, BMW, and
Lexus. If the public schools aren't up to snuff, the residents of this
neighborhood preferentially send their children to private preparatory
schools. Vacation to Disney? Yes, but equally popular are summers in Europe.
