Many things matter about a neighborhood, but the first thing most people notice
is the way a neighborhood looks and its particular character. For example, one
might notice whether the buildings all date from a certain time period or whether
shop signs are in multiple languages. This particular neighborhood in Norfolk,
the Granby St / Kingsley Ln neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.
Notable & Unique: Diversity

English and Canadian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 24.2% of
this neighborhood's residents have English ancestry and 2.2% have Canadian ancestry.
Granby St / Kingsley Ln is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.1% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Greek at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 97.8% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
With 2.2% of employed workers living in the
Granby St / Kingsley Ln neighborhood active in the military, this neighborhood has
the distinction of having a higher proportion of people in the military
than 97.4% of American neighborhoods. This is a major
shaper of the neighborhood's culture and character.
Furthermore, executives, managers and professionals make up 66.3% of the workforce
in the Granby St / Kingsley Ln neighborhood which, according to
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis, is a higher proportion of such
high-level people than is found in 96.7% of the neighborhoods
in America. For this reason, this neighborhood really stands out as unique.
Notable & Unique: People
With more than 2.4% of residents living with a same sex partner,
Granby St / Kingsley Ln is truly a neighborhood that stands out from the rest in
this regard. In fact, exclusive analysis by NeighborhoodScout reveals that
this neighborhood has a greater concentration of same sex couples than
96.6% of U.S. neighborhoods.
In addition, 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 4.1% of America's neighborhoods are wealthier than the
Granby St / Kingsley Ln 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.
Also, 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 Granby St / Kingsley Ln neighborhood: a neighborhood in which more
"urban sophisticates" live than 95.7% 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 college students and highly educated executives.
Finally, 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 32.2% 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
95.7% 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.
