Cedar Land is a suburban neighborhood (based on population density) located in Southbury, Connecticut.

Cedar Land real estate is primarily made up of small (studio to two bedroom) to medium sized (three or four bedroom) apartment complexes/high-rise apartments and small apartment buildings. Most of the residential real estate is owner occupied. Many of the residences in the Cedar Land neighborhood are established but not old, having been built between 1970 and 1999. A number of residences were also built between 1940 and 1969.

Cedar Land has a 14.4% vacancy rate, which is well above average compared to other U.S. neighborhoods (higher than 73.0% of American neighborhoods). Most vacant housing here is vacant year round.

Either way, if you live here, you may find many of the homes or apartments are empty.

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.

NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals that this neighborhood has a higher income than 49.5% 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

A neighborhood is far different if it is dominated by enlisted military personnel rather than people who earn their living by farming. It is also different if most of the neighbors are clerical support or managers. What is wonderful is the sheer diversity of neighborhoods, allowing you to find the type that fits your lifestyle and aspirations.

In the Cedar Land neighborhood, 56.5% of the working population is employed in executive, management, and professional occupations.

The Neighbors: Languages

The most common language spoken in the Cedar Land neighborhood is English, spoken by 93.3% of households. Some people also speak Italian (3.1%).

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Culture is the shared learned behavior of peoples. Undeniably, different ethnicities and ancestries have different cultural traditions, and as a result, neighborhoods with concentrations of residents of one or another ethnicities or ancestries will express those cultures. It is what makes the North End in Boston so fun to visit for the Italian restaurants, bakeries, culture, and charm, and similarly, why people enjoy visiting Chinatown in San Francisco.

In the Cedar Land neighborhood in Southbury, CT, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Irish (21.2%). There are also a number of people of Italian ancestry (16.8%), and residents who report German roots (14.6%), and some of the residents are also of English ancestry (12.9%), along with some Polish ancestry residents (7.8%), among others.

Getting to Work

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 Cedar Land neighborhood spend between 45 minutes and one hour commuting one-way to work (29.9% of working residents), longer and tougher than most commutes in America.
