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: People
According to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis, Bryn Mawr
is among the best neighborhoods for families in Pennsylvania. In fact, this neighborhood is
more family-friendly than 99.8% of neighborhoods
in the entire state of Pennsylvania. Its combination of top public
schools, low crime rates, and owner-occupied single family homes gives
this area the look and feel of a "Leave It to Beaver" episode. Many other
families also live here, making it easy to socialize and develop a strong
sense of community. In addition, the high number of college-educated parents
influences the academic success of the local schools. Overall, you will
find all of the amenities a family needs to thrive in the
Bryn Mawr neighborhood.
In addition to being an excellent choice for families with school-aged children, this
neighborhood is also a very good choice for highly educated executives, urban sophisticates and college students.
In addition, if knowledge is power, then imagine the cumulative power of one neighborhood
where many of the adults have earned an advanced degree, such as a Masters,
law degree, medical degree, or even a Ph.D. This is certainly the case in
the Bryn Mawr neighborhood, where 34.1% have
earned an advanced degree. Compare that to the average neighborhood in
America, where just 8.4% of adults have completed a post-graduate degree,
and you can see why this neighborhood is a stand out. In fact, this neighborhood
has a higher rate of adults with an advanced degree than 96.6%
of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Bryn Mawr neighborhood has more
Slovak and Lithuanian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 2.8% of
this neighborhood's residents have Slovak ancestry and 1.6% have Lithuanian ancestry.
Bryn Mawr is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.6% 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 98.1% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, real estate in the Bryn Mawr neighborhood is almost exclusively owner-occupied. NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals that this neighborhood has a higher rate of owner-occupied housing than is found in 97.6% of U.S. neighborhoods. If you are seeking to rent, this neighborhood may not have many options, but high rates of ownership often indicate stability in a neighborhood.
Furthermore, one way that the Bryn Mawr neighborhood really stands out, is that it has more large 4, 5, or additional bedroom homes and real estate than 97.3% of the neighborhoods in America. When you walk or drive around this neighborhood, you'll instantly notice the size of the homes here which definitely makes a strong visual statement.
Also of note, some neighborhoods are made up of apartments. Some consist of row houses, and most - by far - consist of a mixture of housing types. But the Bryn Mawr neighborhood stands out due to the total dominance of detached, single-family homes here. There are nearly no other types of residential real estate in the neighborhood. In fact, this neighborhood has a higher proportion of single-family homes in its real estate stock than 97.0% of all American neighborhoods.
