Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics
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: Real Estate
Hawaiian Paradise Park is a neighborhood that is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet.
Many times, such places have amenities that bring locals and visitors to the
waterfront for recreational activities or to check out the scenery.
In some densely populated areas that are less financially well-off, the neighborhood
waterfront can be relatively industrial and less open to recreation.
In addition, this Hawaiian Paradise Park neighborhood has earned the amazing distinction of having one of the highest rates of detached, single-family homes of any neighborhood in the U.S. With 99.0% of the residential real estate here made up of free-standing single-family homes, there is a greater proportion of single-family homes here than in 98.2% of all neighborhoods in America.
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
Hawaiian Paradise Park neighborhood stands apart from most American neighborhood due
to the proportion of its residents still working in these fields. With 8.0%
of the workforce so employed, this neighborhood has a greater concentration
of such workers than 98.3% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Diversity

Portuguese and Puerto Rican ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 2.7% of
this neighborhood's residents have Portuguese ancestry and 7.9% have Puerto Rican ancestry.
Hawaiian Paradise Park is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 8.4% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Tagalog, which is the first language of the Philippine region, at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.2% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: People

above-average safety from crime, and a high rate of home ownership in

across the state of Hawaii. In addition, there are a high proportion
of other families with school-aged children living here, making it easy
for parents and their children to socialize and develop a sense of community
support. In addition, families here highly value education, as is reflected
by the strength of the local schools, in part due to the educational
attainment of the parents here, who vote in support of the public schools.
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.

line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 84.7%
of U.S. neighborhoods.
The Neighbors: Occupations

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.
