​​AUSTIN - ​The small East Austin neighborhood that surrounds Ortega Elementary School might be the most authentically Austin neighborhood in the area. 

That's because, according to data from the U.S. Census Bureau, the residents of that neighborhood have collectively lived in their homes longer than anywhere else in the metro area.

Residents of that neighborhood, bound by Springdale and Ledesma Rds. to the northwest and by the Tannehill Branch of Boggy Creek to the Southeast, have a median tenure in their homes dating back to 1983, with typical homeowners having lived there since 1976.

The data comes from the latest edition of the Five-Year American Community Survey from the U.S. Census Bureau, which presents a statistical snapshot of a variety of demographic data across the entire United States​ down to the neighborhood level.​

For the entire Austin area, the median year a household moved into its home was 2007, with renters having a median move-in year of 2010 and homeowners having a median move-in year of 2003.​
