The way a neighborhood looks and feels when you walk or drive around it, from
its setting, its buildings, and its flavor, can make all the difference. This
neighborhood has some really cool things about the way it looks and feels as
revealed by NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research. This might include anything
from the housing stock to the types of households living here to how people
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Main St / Murworth Dr neighborhood has more
African and Sub-Saharan African ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 15.9% of
this neighborhood's residents have African ancestry and 18.4% have Sub-Saharan African ancestry.
Main St / Murworth Dr is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 3.4% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Tagalog, which is the first language of the Philippine region, at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 96.5% 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: 53.6%. 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: Real Estate
In addition, the Main St / Murworth Dr 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 92.2% 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, the real estate in the Main St / Murworth Dr neighborhood really stands out in the way it looks for a unique reason: this neighborhood has a higher proportion of apartment complexes or high-rise apartments than nearly every neighborhood in the country. Most neighborhoods are a mixture of real estate and housing types, but here it is almost entirely dominated by big apartment buildings and complexes. In fact, 87.2% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 98.2% of American neighborhoods.
Also of note, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the Main St / Murworth 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, 89.3% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
Finally, renter-occupied real estate is dominant in the Main St / Murworth Dr neighborhood. The percentage of rental real estate here, according to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, is 88.8%, which is higher than 96.8% 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.
