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
Of note is NeighborhoodScout's research finding that the
Amherst Dr / Adelphi Ln 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
Amherst Dr / Adelphi Ln community truly stands out from the rest in this regard.
In addition, the types of households in a neighborhood can tell a lot about the character
and lifestyle of those living here. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis
reveals that this neighborhood, above nearly every neighborhood in America,
has a greater percentage of its residents living alone: 53.3%. This
is a higher percent living alone than we found in 98.1% of
all U.S. neighborhoods. Often residents who live alone are new arrivals
to an area who are single, and often senior citizens who have lost a spouse.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Amherst Dr / Adelphi Ln neighborhood has more
Austrian and Swedish ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 1.4% of
this neighborhood's residents have Austrian ancestry and 4.9% have Swedish ancestry.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
With 1.8% of employed workers living in the
Amherst Dr / Adelphi Ln neighborhood active in the military, this neighborhood has
the distinction of having a higher proportion of people in the military
than 96.8% of American neighborhoods. This is a major
shaper of the neighborhood's culture and character.
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 Amherst Dr / Adelphi Ln neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 95.9% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the Amherst Dr / Adelphi Ln 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, 89.4% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
Furthermore, one of the really unique and interesting things about the look and setting of the Amherst Dr / Adelphi Ln neighborhood is that it is almost entirely dominated by large apartment buildings, such as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments. 71.7% of the residential real estate here is classified as such. This puts this neighborhood on the map as having a higher proportion of large apartment buildings than 96.0% of all neighborhoods in America.
