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 Dominion Hills neighborhood has more
South American and Armenian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 9.9% of
this neighborhood's residents have South American ancestry and 1.1% have Armenian ancestry.
Dominion Hills is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.8% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Mon-Khmer, which is the dominant language of Cambodia, at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.0% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: People
If you come to know the people here, you will recognize that you're
in the company of one of the wealthiest communities in the nation. In
fact, a mere 2.6% of America's neighborhoods are wealthier than the
Dominion Hills neighborhood. Real estate here is exceedingly
well-maintained, and similarly, tends to maintain its value over time.
The cars driven are mostly luxury brands like Mercedes, Audi, BMW, and
Lexus. If the public schools aren't up to snuff, the residents of this
neighborhood preferentially send their children to private preparatory
schools. Vacation to Disney? Yes, but equally popular are summers in Europe.
In addition, think about the people you know personally. How many of them would
purchase box seats to opening night at the symphony? How many of them
regularly attend gallery openings, or are the first to reserve tickets
to opening night at the ballet? If they're like most of us, they don't
do any of these things. But if you're among an exclusive crowd of wealthy
and refined patrons of the arts, then you'll feel right at home in
the Dominion Hills neighborhood: a neighborhood in which more
"urban sophisticates" live than 95.9% of neighborhoods
across the U.S. Here, your neighbors are defined as having urbane
tastes in literature, music, live theatre and the arts. They are wealthy,
educated, travel in style, and live a big city lifestyle whether or
not they live in or near a big city.
In addition to being an excellent choice for urban sophisticates, this
neighborhood is also a very good choice for highly educated executives, active retirees and families with school-aged children.
Also, some neighborhoods have residents that are more educated than others. But
in this neighborhood there is a dramatic difference. NeighborhoodScout's
exclusive analysis reveals that 31.9% of the adults here have
earned a Masters degree, medical degree, Ph.D. or law degree. This is a
higher rate of people with a graduate degree than is found in
95.6% of U.S. neighborhoods, where the average American
neighborhood has 8.4% of its adults with a graduate degree. If you are
highly educated, you may have much in common with many of your neighbors here.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
Would you like to be able to ride your bike to work? If you are attracted
to the idea of getting a little exercise of the two-wheeled type while
reducing your carbon footprint, bicycling to work might be the answer.
But which neighborhood you live in can make this either impossible, or
alternatively, a great and realistic option. NeighborhoodScout's analysis
revealed that the Dominion Hills neighborhood is a fantastic
option for bicycle commuters, as 4.8% of commuters here do ride
their bikes to and from work on a daily basis. This is a higher amount
than we found in 97.3% of the neighborhoods in America.
Also, a unique way of commuting is simply not to. And in the Dominion Hills
neighborhood, analysis shows that 12.2% of the residents work
from home, avoiding a commute altogether. This may not seem like a large number,
but it is a higher proportion of people working from home than is found in
96.5% of the neighborhoods in the United States.
One thing NeighborhoodScout's research reveals is that the wealthier and/or
more isolated the neighborhood, the greater the proportion of residents who
choose to work from home.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
The government often provides some of the more stable jobs in the economy.
From local, to state, to federal government workers, the government can
also be a major employer. What NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed, is
that the Dominion Hills neighborhood in particular stands out
when compared nationally for the proportion of its working residents who
are employed by the government. At 14.6% of its workforce, this
neighborhood has a greater concentration of government workers than
96.8% of U.S. neighborhoods.
