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: Occupations
The Bowen Ave / Joe Morse Dr neighborhood stands out nationally for having
a greater proportion of its residents active in the military than
98.9% of other U.S. neighborhoods. If you come here, you
will notice military people active in their jobs, going to and from work,
and in plain clothes out and about the neighborhood.
Furthermore, the Bowen Ave / Joe Morse Dr neighborhood has a greater proportion of
government workers living in it than 97.2% of the neighborhoods
in America, according to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis. This is
a unique feature of this neighborhood, and one that shapes its character.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Bowen Ave / Joe Morse Dr neighborhood has more
Puerto Rican ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 10.8% of
this neighborhood's residents have Puerto Rican ancestry.
Bowen Ave / Joe Morse Dr is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 4.4% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak German at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.6% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: People
If you're looking for a great spot to raise a family, then look no
further than the Bowen Ave / Joe Morse Dr neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's
analysis found that the combination of good quality public schools,
above-average safety from crime, and a high rate of home ownership in
predominantly single-family homes, help make this neighborhood
among the top 13.6% of family-friendly neighborhoods
across the state of Texas. In addition, there are a high proportion
of other families with school-aged children living here, making it easy
for parents and their children to socialize and develop a sense of community
support. In addition, families here highly value education, as is reflected
by the strength of the local schools, in part due to the educational
attainment of the parents here, who vote in support of the public schools.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, 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 Bowen Ave / Joe Morse Dr 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 98.8% of all American neighborhoods.
Furthermore, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the Bowen Ave / Joe Morse Dr 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, 88.7% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
