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: 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 Sydenstricker Rd / Old Keene Mill Rd neighborhood in particular stands out
when compared nationally for the proportion of its working residents who
are employed by the government. At 18.4% of its workforce, this
neighborhood has a greater concentration of government workers than
98.5% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Furthermore, with 1.6% of employed workers living in the
Sydenstricker Rd / Old Keene Mill Rd neighborhood active in the military, this neighborhood has
the distinction of having a higher proportion of people in the military
than 96.5% of American neighborhoods. This is a major
shaper of the neighborhood's culture and character.
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 2.2% of America's neighborhoods are wealthier than the
Sydenstricker Rd / Old Keene Mill Rd 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.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Sydenstricker Rd / Old Keene Mill Rd neighborhood has more
Iranian and British ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 1.4% of
this neighborhood's residents have Iranian ancestry and 1.9% have British ancestry.
Sydenstricker Rd / Old Keene Mill Rd is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 4.0% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Urdu, which is the national language of Pakistan, at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.5% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, one way that the Sydenstricker Rd / Old Keene Mill Rd neighborhood really stands out, is that it has more large 4, 5, or additional bedroom homes and real estate than 98.8% 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, with a real estate vacancy rate of only 0.6%, the Sydenstricker Rd / Old Keene Mill Rd neighborhood has a lower vacancy rate than 96.2% 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.
