Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

The way a neighborhood looks and feels when you walk or drive around it, from its setting, its buildings, and its flavor, makes all the difference. The character and uniqueness of the way Manville Heights looks and feels was certainly revealed in my research as evidenced by the types of housing and households, the modes of transportation and the demographics of the people living here.

Notable & Unique: People

Some neighborhoods have residents that are more educated than others. But in this neighborhood there is a dramatic difference. This exclusive analysis reveals that 63.2% 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 99.9% 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.

Did you know that the Manville Heights neighborhood has more Czechoslovakian and Russian ancestry people living in it than nearly any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 0.8% of this neighborhood's residents have Czechoslovakian ancestry and 5.0% have Russian ancestry.

Do you like to be surrounded by people from all over the country or world, with different perspectives and life experiences? Or do you instead prefer to be in a neighborhood where most residents have lived there for a long time, creating a sense of cohesiveness? One of the amazing features of Manville Heights is that brings you both of these desirable qualities.

Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation

More people in Manville Heights choose to walk to work each day (45.2%) than almost any neighborhood in America. If you are attracted to the idea of being able to walk to work, this neighborhood is a good choice. This is a special neighborhood for the number of people who walk to work. Combining exercise, low cost, and reduced pollution, plus the chance to see your neighbors, walking to work is fairly uncommon in America but likely to increase as people try to reduce their dependence on automobiles, and this neighborhood offers that opportunity today.

Also, would you like to be able to ride your bike to work? If you are attracted to the idea of getting a little exercise of the two-wheeled type while reducing your carbon footprint, bicycling to work might be the answer. But which neighborhood you live in can make this either impossible, or alternatively, a great and realistic option. This analysis revealed that the Manville Heights neighborhood is a fantastic option for bicycle commuters, as 4.7% of commuters here do ride their bikes to and from work on a daily basis. This is a higher amount than found in 97.1% of the neighborhoods in America. One reason is that Manville Heights is right next to the University of Iowa, and the city of Iowa City has developed a Master Bicycle Plan for the entire Iowa City community.

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 Manville Heights neighborhood spend under 15 minutes commuting one-way to work (54.2% of working residents), one of the shortest commutes across 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 Manville Heights neighborhood in Iowa City are upper-middle income, making it an above average income neighborhood. This exclusive analysis reveals that this neighborhood has a higher income than 71.7% of the neighborhoods in America. 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

The old saying "birds of a feather flock together" is true. And it is also true that you are what you do for a living. The types of occupations your neighbors have shape their character, and together as a group, their collective occupations shape the culture of a place.

In the Manville Heights neighborhood, 47.3% of the working population is employed in executive, management, and professional occupations. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants, with 32.5% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in educational, health/social service, and tech support occupations (16.6%), and 3.6% 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 Manville Heights neighborhood in Iowa City, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as German (30.8%). There are also a number of people of Irish ancestry (15.0%), and residents who report Asian roots (8.0%), and some of the residents are also of English ancestry (7.4%), along with some Polish ancestry residents (5.4%), among others.
