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.

Did you know that the Farrington Hwy / Pupukahi St neighborhood has more
Asian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 53.6% of
this neighborhood's residents have Asian ancestry.
Farrington Hwy / Pupukahi St is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 19.8% 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

Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
More people ride the bus in this neighborhood each day to get to work
than 98.9% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
The freedom of moving to new places versus the comfort of home. How much
and how often people move not only can create diverse and worldly neighborhoods,
but simultaneously it can produce a loss of intimacy with one's surroundings
and a lack of connectedness to one's neighbors. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive
research has identified this neighborhood as unique with regard to the
transience of its populace.
What is interesting to note, is that the Farrington Hwy / Pupukahi St

(54.6%) than are found in 98.6% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
There are more people living in the Farrington Hwy / Pupukahi St neighborhood
employed as sales and service workers (52.1%) than almost any neighborhood
in the country. From fast-food service workers to major sales accounts,
sales and service workers make up the largest proportion of our national
employment picture. But despite that size and importance nationally, this
neighborhood still stands out as unique due to the dominance of people
living here who work in such occupations.
Furthermore, the Farrington Hwy / Pupukahi St neighborhood stands out nationally for having
a greater proportion of its residents active in the military than
97.4% of other U.S. neighborhoods. If you come here, you
will notice military people active in their jobs, going to and from work,
and in plain clothes out and about the neighborhood.
Notable & Unique: Car Ownership
We Americans love our cars. Not only are they a necessity for most Americans
due to the shape of our neighborhoods and the distances between where we
live, work, shop, and go to school, but we also fancy them. As a result,
most households in America have one, two, or three cars. But NeighborhoodScout's
exclusive analysis shows that the Farrington Hwy / Pupukahi St neighborhood has
a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.
Residents of this neighborhood must really love automobiles. NeighborhoodScout's
Analysis reveals that 40.0% of the households here have four, five,
or more cars. That is more cars per household than in 96.7% of
the neighborhoods in the nation.

Such building types define the real estate of neighborhoods dominated by small 2, 3, and 4 unit apartment buildings. Many are in older core neighborhoods of Eastern and Midwestern cities, or historic town centers in their hinterlands. If you wax romantic about the look and feel of such neighborhoods, with fresh pizza, falafel and an independent florist at the corner, then you might find the Farrington Hwy / Pupukahi St neighborhood worth a close look.
