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 Green Bay,
the City Center neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
It used to be that most Americans lived on the farm, or otherwise made their
living from the land, the forests, or the sea. With global trade and an
economy increasingly based on providing services to one another, fewer
people farm, fish or harvest timber now than at any time in American history.
But according to NeighborhoodScout's leading analysis, the Green Bay
City Center neighborhood stands apart from most American neighborhood due
to the proportion of its residents still working in these fields. With 7.8%
of the workforce so employed, this neighborhood has a greater concentration
of such workers than 98.3% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Diversity

Belgian and Haitian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 0.9% of
this neighborhood's residents have Belgian ancestry and 1.3% have Haitian ancestry.
Green Bay City Center is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 0.4% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Hebrew at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 95.5% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: People
The types of households in a neighborhood can tell a lot about the character

to an area who are single, and often senior citizens who have lost a spouse.

These are some of the hallmarks of neighborhoods with lots of small 2, 3, and 4 unit apartment buildings.
