Longwood U / S Main St is a densely urban neighborhood (based on population density) located in Farmville, Virginia.

Longwood U / S Main St real estate is primarily made up of small (studio to two bedroom) to medium sized (three or four bedroom) apartment complexes/high-rise apartments and single-family homes. Most of the residential real estate is renter occupied. Many of the residences in the Longwood U / S Main St neighborhood are older, well-established, built between 1940 and 1969. A number of residences were also built between 2000 and the present.

In Longwood U / S Main St, the current vacancy rate is 0.0%, which is a lower rate of vacancies than 100.0% of all neighborhoods in the U.S. This means that the housing supply in Longwood U / S Main St is very tight compared to the demand for property here.

Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

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: Real Estate

99.3% of the real estate in the Longwood U / S Main St neighborhood is occupied by renters, which is nearly the highest rate of renter occupancy of any neighborhood in America. This neighborhood has the distinction of having one of the lowest real estate vacancy rates of any neighborhood in America. With just 0.0% of the real estate vacant, this indicates an exceptionally strong demand for real estate in the Longwood U / S Main St neighborhood, and/or an issue with creating enough supply for the demand. This could have the effect of increasing real estate prices, increasing supply to meet demand, or both.

Notable & Unique: People

One of the unique characteristics of the Longwood U / S Main St neighborhood revealed by analysis is that the per capita income of residents here is lower than that found in 96.1% of the neighborhoods in America. In a nation where 1 out of every 4 children lives in poverty, the Longwood U / S Main St neighborhood also stands out as being ranked among the lowest 0.0% of neighborhoods affected by this global issue.

In addition, an extraordinary 98.3% of the residents of the Longwood U / S Main St neighborhood are currently enrolled in college. This is such a large part of life in this neighborhood that the neighborhood changes a great deal with the change of semesters and is far quieter during the summer when many students are away.

Also, with a nice mix of college students, safety from crime, and decent walkability, the Longwood U / S Main St neighborhood rates highly as a college student friendly place to live, and one that college students and their parents may want to consider. NeighborhoodScout's analysis shows that it rates more highly for a good place for college students to live than 85.4% of the neighborhoods in VA. This often also means that the area has certain amenities and services geared towards college students, from undergraduates to graduate students.

Notable & Unique: Occupations

There are more people living in the Longwood U / S Main St neighborhood employed as sales and service workers (28.9%) than almost any neighborhood in the country. From fast-food service workers to major sales accounts, sales and service workers make up the largest proportion of our national employment picture. But despite that size and importance nationally, this neighborhood still stands out as unique due to the dominance of people living here who work in such occupations.

Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation

In the Longwood U / S Main St neighborhood, walking to work is a real option for many. In fact, NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research reveals walking to and from work is the chosen way to commute for 44.8% of residents here. This is a higher proportion of walking commuters than we found in 99.5% of American neighborhoods. Get ready to put on your walking shoes if you move here!

Also, a unique way of commuting is simply not to. And in the Longwood U / S Main St neighborhood, analysis shows that 15.5% 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 98.6% 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: Length of Commute

Regardless of the means by which residents commute, this neighborhood has a length of commute that is notable. Residents of the Longwood U / S Main St neighborhood have the pleasure of having one of the shortest commutes to work of any neighborhood in America. 74.1% of the residents have a commute time from home to work (one way) of less than fifteen minutes. This is a higher proportion of residents enjoying a short trip to work than NeighborhoodScout found in 99.0% of U.S. neighborhoods. Less time commuting means more time for other things in life.

Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability

The freedom of moving to new places versus the comfort of home. How much and how often people move not only can create diverse and worldly neighborhoods, but simultaneously it can produce a loss of intimacy with one's surroundings 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 Longwood U / S Main St neighborhood, a greater proportion of the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is found in 97.8% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood, more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.

Notable & Unique: Diversity

Significantly, 0.8% of its residents five years old and above primarily speak Gujarati, which is native to the Indian state of Gujarat, at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher than 95.6% of the neighborhoods in America.


The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income

There are two complementary measures for understanding the income of a neighborhood's residents: the average and the extremes. While a neighborhood may be relatively wealthy overall, it is equally important to understand the rate of people - particularly children - who are living at or below the federal poverty line, which is extremely low income. Some neighborhoods with a lower average income may actually have a lower childhood poverty rate than another with a higher average income, and this helps us understand the conditions and character of a neighborhood.

The neighbors in the Longwood U / S Main St neighborhood in Farmville are low income, making it among the lowest income neighborhoods in America. NeighborhoodScout's research shows that this neighborhood has an income lower than 96.1% of U.S. neighborhoods. In addition, 0.0% of the children seventeen and under living in this neighborhood are living below the federal poverty line, which is a lower rate of childhood poverty than is found in 100.0% of America's neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

A neighborhood is far different if it is dominated by enlisted military personnel rather than people who earn their living by farming. It is also different if most of the neighbors are clerical support or managers. What is wonderful is the sheer diversity of neighborhoods, allowing you to find the type that fits your lifestyle and aspirations.

In the Longwood U / S Main St neighborhood, 71.1% of the working population is employed in sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is executive, management, and professional occupations, with 14.3% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations (9.8%), and 4.8% in manufacturing and laborer occupations.

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Culture is shared learned behavior. We learn it from our parents, their parents, our houses of worship, and much of our culture – our learned behavior – comes from our ancestors. That is why ancestry and ethnicity can be so interesting and important to understand: places with concentrations of people of one or more ancestries often express those shared learned behaviors and this gives each neighborhood its own culture. Even different neighborhoods in the same city can have drastically different cultures.

In the Longwood U / S Main St neighborhood in Farmville, VA, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as German (18.3%). There are also a number of people of Irish ancestry (14.3%), and residents who report English roots (11.5%), and some of the residents are also of Polish ancestry (8.9%), along with some Italian ancestry residents (8.0%), among others.

The Neighbors: Languages

The most common language spoken in the Longwood U / S Main St neighborhood is English, spoken by 94.1% of households. Some people also speak Spanish (2.1%).

Getting to Work

Even if your neighborhood is walkable, you may still have to drive to your place of work. Some neighborhoods are located where many can get to work in just a few minutes, while others are located such that most residents have a long and arduous commute. The greatest number of commuters in Longwood U / S Main St neighborhood spend under 15 minutes commuting one-way to work (74.1% of working residents), one of the shortest commutes across America.

Here most residents (45.2%) drive alone in a private automobile to get to work. In addition, quite a number also hop out the door and walk to work to get to work (44.8%) and 7.5% of residents also carpool with coworkers, friends, or neighbors for their daily commute. In a neighborhood like this, as in most of the nation, many residents find owning a car useful for getting to work.
