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 Wayne,
the Chesterbrook neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.
Notable & Unique: People
Of note is NeighborhoodScout's research finding that the
Chesterbrook neighborhood has some of the lowest rates of children
living in poverty of any neighborhood in the United States. In a nation
where approximately 1 in 4 children are living in poverty, the
Chesterbrook community truly stands out from the rest in this regard.
In addition, the rate of college educated adults in the Chesterbrook neighborhood
is a unique characteristic of the neighborhood. 78.3% 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
98.6% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Also, one of the most interesting things about the Chesterbrook
neighborhood is that it has a greater concentration of residents who live
alone than most all neighborhoods in America. With 49.1% of the
households here made up of people living alone, NeighborhoodScout's research
reveals that this is a larger proportion of people living alone than in
96.6% of the neighborhoods in America.
Finally, 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 Chesterbrook neighborhood: a neighborhood in which more
"urban sophisticates" live than 95.8% 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 and highly educated executives.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Chesterbrook neighborhood has more
Brazilian and Hungarian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 1.3% of
this neighborhood's residents have Brazilian ancestry and 2.1% have Hungarian ancestry.
Chesterbrook is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 2.0% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Urdu, which is the national language of Pakistan, at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 98.3% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
Executives, managers and professionals make up 68.4% of the workforce
in the Chesterbrook neighborhood which, according to
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis, is a higher proportion of such
high-level people than is found in 97.5% of the neighborhoods
in America. For this reason, this neighborhood really stands out as unique.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the Chesterbrook stands out as rather unique in having nearly all of its residential real estate built in one time period, namely between 1970 and 1999, generally considered to be established, but not old housing. What you'll sense when you look around or drive the streets of this neighborhood is that many of the residences look the same because of this similarity of age. In fact, 97.1% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
Furthermore, many people dream of living along a street lined with row houses or other attached homes. Such places do often have an abundance of charm. If you are one of these people, the Chesterbrook neighborhood could be your paradise. With 72.7% of the homes and real estate here classified as rowhouses or other attached homes, this neighborhood brims with opportunity to find the right place for you. Only 0.4% of U.S. neighborhoods have more row houses than this neighborhood, making it one of the most interesting things about this special neighborhood.
