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
Astoundingly, the City Center neighborhood has one of the highest
concentrations of divorcees living here than of any neighborhood, a
higher concentration than NeighborhoodScout found in 99.7%
of U.S. neighborhoods. This may be because people living here divorce
more often than others, or that divorced people move here after they
become divorced. If you are divorced, you will be in good company in
this particular Borger neighborhood.
Notable & Unique: Length of Commute
Whether walking, biking, riding, or driving, the length of one's commute
is an important factor for one's quality of life. The Borger City Center
neighborhood stands out for its commute length, according to NeighborhoodScout's
Residents of the Borger City Center neighborhood have the pleasure
of having one of the shortest commutes to work of any neighborhood in
America. 79.1% of the residents have a commute time from
home to work (one way) of less than fifteen minutes. This is a higher
proportion of residents enjoying a short trip to work than NeighborhoodScout
found in 99.5% of U.S. neighborhoods. Less time commuting
means more time for other things in life.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
More people work in manufacturing and as laborers here in the Borger City Center
neighborhood than in 97.9% of the neighborhoods in America. Despite
the loss of manufacturing jobs across the nation, this neighborhood remains
a place where, compared to other parts of the country, you will find many
laborers and manufacturers.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Borger City Center neighborhood has more
Dutch ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 5.9% of
this neighborhood's residents have Dutch ancestry.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
In the Borger City Center neighborhood, carpooling is still a popular
way to get to and from work. NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals that
23.8% of commuters carpool here, which is more than in
97.7% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Car Ownership
Most American households own a car or other vehicle. Many own two cars
or perhaps three. In the United States, it is useful to have an automobile
not only for commuting, but also for shopping and getting to other services
one needs. But NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed that households in
the Borger City Center neighborhood have a highly unusual car ownership.
33.2% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at
all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
97.2% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, vacant homes and apartments are a significant characteristic of this neighborhood. In fact, with 34.9% of the residential real estate vacant, the Borger City Center neighborhood claims the distinction of having a higher vacancy rate than 96.0% of the neighborhoods in America. This can either be because much of the property is seasonally occupied, like in many vacation areas, or that much of the real estate is more permanently abandoned.
