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 White Settlement Rd / Foch St neighborhood has more
Iranian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 3.4% of
this neighborhood's residents have Iranian ancestry.
White Settlement Rd / Foch St is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 3.4% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Persian at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.4% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: People
One of the most interesting things about the White Settlement Rd / Foch St
neighborhood is that it has a greater concentration of residents who live
alone than most all neighborhoods in America. With 56.3% of the
households here made up of people living alone, NeighborhoodScout's research
reveals that this is a larger proportion of people living alone than in
98.7% of the neighborhoods in America.
In addition, the White Settlement Rd / Foch St neighborhood has a greater percentage
of children living in poverty (60.4%) than found in
95.4% 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: Migration / Stability
Do you like to be surrounded by people from all over the country or world,
with different perspectives and life experiences? Or do you instead prefer
to be in a neighborhood where most residents have lived there for a long
time, creating a sense of cohesiveness? NeighborhoodScout's analysis
reveals that this neighborhood stands out among American neighborhoods
for the uniqueness of the mobility of its residents.
In the White Settlement Rd / Foch St neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 97.2% 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, if you like the look and ambience of new homes and newly built neighborhoods, you will love the White Settlement Rd / Foch St neighborhood. A whopping 69.1% of the homes and other residential real estate here were built after 1999, which is a higher proportion of new homes then you will find in 98.3% of the neighborhoods in the U.S. Everything here just feels new.
Furthermore, the White Settlement Rd / Foch St 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 87.8% 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.
Also of note, one of the really unique and interesting things about the look and setting of the White Settlement Rd / Foch St neighborhood is that it is almost entirely dominated by large apartment buildings, such as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments. 79.2% 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 97.2% of all neighborhoods in America.
