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: Migration / Stability
The freedom of moving to new places versus the comfort of home. How much
and how often people move not only can create diverse and worldly neighborhoods,
but simultaneously it can produce a loss of intimacy with one's surroundings
and a lack of connectedness to one's neighbors. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive
research has identified this neighborhood as unique with regard to the
transience of its populace.
In the Arthurtown neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 99.5% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
Notable & Unique: People
An extraordinary 66.1% of the residents of the
Arthurtown neighborhood are currently enrolled in college. This is
such a large part of life in this neighborhood that the neighborhood changes
a great deal with the change of semesters and is far quieter during
the summer when many students are away.
In addition, the Arthurtown neighborhood stands out for having an
average per capita income lower than 98.4% of the neighborhoods
in the United States.
The Arthurtown neighborhood also has a greater percentage
of children living in poverty (78.8%) than found in
99.2% of all U.S. neighborhoods. Children living in poverty
is one of the challenges facing America, and the world, and in this
neighborhood in particular, the problem can be considered acute.
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 Arthurtown neighborhood has
a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.
Residents of this neighborhood must really love automobiles. NeighborhoodScout's
Analysis reveals that 25.8% of the households here have four, five,
or more cars. That is more cars per household than in 99.3% of
the neighborhoods in the nation.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
From major sales accounts to fast-food workers, sales and service employees
are often the backbone of the local economy. In the Arthurtown
neighborhood, they truly stand out. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis
identifies this neighborhood as having a higher percentage of sales and
service workers than 95.1% of all American neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Arthurtown neighborhood has more
Brazilian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 0.6% of
this neighborhood's residents have Brazilian ancestry.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, homes built from 2000 through today make up a higher proportion of the Arthurtown neighborhood's real estate landscape than 99.0% of the neighborhoods in America.

In fact, 79.8% of the residential real estate here is classified as newer.
Furthermore, the real estate in the Arthurtown neighborhood really stands out in the way it looks for a unique reason: this neighborhood has a higher proportion of apartment complexes or high-rise apartments than nearly every neighborhood in the country. Most neighborhoods are a mixture of real estate and housing types, but here it is almost entirely dominated by big apartment buildings and complexes. In fact, 72.3% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 96.1% of American neighborhoods.
Also of note, renter-occupied real estate is dominant in the Arthurtown neighborhood.
