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: People
Wealth makes most things in life easier, and a few things harder.
If you are wealthy and enjoy keeping up with the Jones', this neighborhood
will interest you. In fact, according to NeighborhoodScout's research,
the Five Forks neighborhood is wealthier than 99.4%
of the neighborhoods in the United States. Residents here are truly in
a unique situation even when compared to other Americans, based on the
sheer amount of wealth concentrated here. Even in times of economic
downturn, residents of this neighborhood, as a group, suffered less

of this neighborhood.
In addition, if you're a regular supporter of the arts and enjoy outings to the

than you're in good company with the people of the Five Forks
neighborhood. This neighborhood is uniquely immersed with more "urban
sophisticates" than 97.7% of neighborhoods across the
country. The people here truly stand out as a class among their own.
They are an exclusive community characterized by refined tastes,
cultural inclinations, and the means to live well. Urban sophisticates
live a big city lifestyle, whether or not they live in or near a big
city. They are educated executives or managers by week, and serial
patrons of the arts by weekend. If this lifestyle pertains to you,
than you'll certainly feel right at home in the Five Forks
In addition to being an excellent choice for urban sophisticates, this
neighborhood is also a very good choice for highly educated executives 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 36.3% 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
97.3% 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.
Finally, priests and therapists would like to think they know the secrets to a
truly successful marriage, but according to NeighborhoodScout's research,
the folks of the Five Forks neighborhood may actually hold
the key. 66.0% of its residents are married, which is a higher
percentage than is found in 95.4% of the neighborhoods

Eastern European and Slovak ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 2.7% of
this neighborhood's residents have Eastern European ancestry and 1.5% have Slovak ancestry.
Five Forks is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 4.3% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Vietnamese at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 97.9% of the neighborhoods in America.
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 Five Forks neighborhood in particular stands out
when compared nationally for the proportion of its working residents who
are employed by the government. At 21.2% of its workforce, this
neighborhood has a greater concentration of government workers than
99.1% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Furthermore, with 5.2% of employed workers living in the
Five Forks neighborhood active in the military, this neighborhood has
the distinction of having a higher proportion of people in the military
than 99.0% of American neighborhoods. This is a major
shaper of the neighborhood's culture and character.
In addition, the Five Forks neighborhood has a higher proportion of
its residents employed as executives, managers and professionals than
97.2% of the neighborhoods in American. In fact, 67.5%
of the employed people here make a living as an executive, a manager, or
other professional. With such a high concentration, this truly shapes
the character of this neighborhood, and to a large degree defines what
this neighborhood is about.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, one way that the Five Forks neighborhood really stands out, is that it has more large 4, 5, or additional bedroom homes and real estate than 99.6% of the neighborhoods in America. When you walk or drive around this neighborhood, you'll instantly notice the size of the homes here which definitely makes a strong visual statement.
Furthermore, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the Five Forks 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, 92.7% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
