than 97.8% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
The freedom of moving to new places versus the comfort of home. How much

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 Democracy Dr / Parkwood Blvd neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is

more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.

walking from the bedroom to the home office. NeighborhoodScout's analysis

seem like a large number, but Scout's research shows that this is a higher
percentage of people working from home than 97.2% of the
neighborhoods in America. Often people who work from home are engaged in
the creative or technological economy, such as is found in areas around Boston,
