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: Modes of Transportation
More people in Shiloh choose to walk to work each day
(68.8%) than almost any neighborhood in America. If you are
attracted to the idea of being able to walk to work, this neighborhood
could be a good choice.
Also, a unique way of commuting is simply not to. And in the Shiloh
neighborhood, analysis shows that 38.0% 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
99.9% 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: People
Of note is NeighborhoodScout's research finding that the
Shiloh neighborhood has some of the lowest rates of children
living in poverty of any neighborhood in the United States. In a nation
where approximately 1 in 4 children are living in poverty, the
Shiloh community truly stands out from the rest in this regard.
In addition, there is an especially high percentage of incarcerated people (1.1%)
living in the Shiloh neighborhood.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
With 63.6% of employed workers living in the
Shiloh neighborhood active in the military, this neighborhood has
the distinction of having a higher proportion of people in the military
than 99.9% of American neighborhoods. This is a major
shaper of the neighborhood's culture and character.
Furthermore, more people work in manufacturing and as laborers here in the Shiloh
neighborhood than in 95.5% of the neighborhoods in America. Despite
the loss of manufacturing jobs across the nation, this neighborhood remains
a place where, compared to other parts of the country, you will find many
laborers and manufacturers.
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 Shiloh neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 99.8% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
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 Shiloh neighborhood have the pleasure
of having one of the shortest commutes to work of any neighborhood in
America. 82.2% 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 99.6% of U.S. neighborhoods. Less time commuting
means more time for other things in life.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Shiloh neighborhood has more
Haitian and Cuban ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 3.3% of
this neighborhood's residents have Haitian ancestry and 2.4% have Cuban ancestry.
Shiloh is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 3.5% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Korean at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 98.0% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
This neighborhood has wide open spaces, few people, and lots of space to stretch out. If you like locations that fit that description, you may like this neighborhood. Based on NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis, with only 39.24 people per square mile living here, this neighborhood is less crowded than 91.2% of America.
In addition, 99.3% of the real estate in the Shiloh neighborhood is occupied by renters, which is nearly the highest rate of renter occupancy of any neighborhood in America. With a real estate vacancy rate of only 0.0%, the Shiloh neighborhood has a lower vacancy rate than 100.0% of U.S. neighborhoods, a very elite group. Such a low vacancy rate may indicate very strong real estate demand in the neighborhood combined with some impediments to increasing supply, such as zoning or existing density of development, among other potential reasons.
Furthermore, the real estate in the Shiloh neighborhood really stands out in the way it looks for a unique reason: this neighborhood has a higher proportion of apartment complexes or high-rise apartments than nearly every neighborhood in the country. Most neighborhoods are a mixture of real estate and housing types, but here it is almost entirely dominated by big apartment buildings and complexes. In fact, 68.2% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 95.4% of American neighborhoods.
