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: Diversity
Did you know that the Dallas Pky / Dallas North Tollway N neighborhood has more
Brazilian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 3.3% of
this neighborhood's residents have Brazilian ancestry.
Dallas Pky / Dallas North Tollway N is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 3.2% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Portuguese at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 98.8% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: People
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: 52.9%. This
is a higher percent living alone than we found in 98.0% 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: 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 Dallas Pky / Dallas North Tollway N neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 96.8% 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, the Dallas Pky / Dallas North Tollway N neighborhood is very unique in that it has one of the highest proportions of one, two, or no bedroom real estate of any neighborhood in America. Most neighborhoods have a mixture of home or apartment sizes from small to large, but here the concentration of studios and other small living spaces is at near-record heights. With 92.4% of the real estate here of this small size, this most assuredly is a notable feature that makes this neighborhood unique, along with just a handful of other neighborhoods in the U.S. that share this characteristic.
Furthermore, one of the really unique and interesting things about the look and setting of the Dallas Pky / Dallas North Tollway N neighborhood is that it is almost entirely dominated by large apartment buildings, such as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments. 89.6% 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 98.5% of all neighborhoods in America.
Also of note, renter-occupied real estate is dominant in the Dallas Pky / Dallas North Tollway N neighborhood. The percentage of rental real estate here, according to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, is 94.2%, which is higher than 98.1% of the neighborhoods in America. If you were to buy and live in the property you bought here, you would be almost alone in doing so.
Finally, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the Dallas Pky / Dallas North Tollway N 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, 80.5% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
