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: People
Of note is NeighborhoodScout's research finding that the
Joe Yenni Blvd / Woodlake Blvd neighborhood has some of the lowest rates of children
living in poverty of any neighborhood in the United States. In a nation
where approximately 1 in 4 children are living in poverty, the
Joe Yenni Blvd / Woodlake Blvd community truly stands out from the rest in this regard.
In addition, one of the really interesting characteristics about the
Joe Yenni Blvd / Woodlake Blvd neighborhood is that, according to NeighborhoodScout's
exclusive research, it is an excellent choice in which to reside for
college students. Due to its popularity among college students who
already choose to live here, its walkability, and its above average
safety from crime, the neighborhood is ideal for prospective or
already-enrolled college students. Between semesters and during
school breaks, you'll notice that the excitement here fluctuates with
the college seasons. Despite the excitement however, parents of college-age
children can rest easy knowing that this
neighborhood has an above average safety rating. For each of these
reasons, the neighborhood is rated among the
top 3.3% of college-friendly places to live in
the state of Louisiana.
In addition to being an excellent choice for college students, this
neighborhood is also a very good choice for highly educated executives.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Joe Yenni Blvd / Woodlake Blvd neighborhood has more
Danish and French ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 4.9% of
this neighborhood's residents have Danish ancestry and 15.6% have French ancestry.
Joe Yenni Blvd / Woodlake Blvd is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 2.3% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Arabic at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 96.9% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the Joe Yenni Blvd / Woodlake Blvd stands out as rather unique in having nearly all of its residential real estate built in one time period, namely between 1970 and 1999, generally considered to be established, but not old housing. What you'll sense when you look around or drive the streets of this neighborhood is that many of the residences look the same because of this similarity of age. In fact, 91.2% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
Furthermore, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Joe Yenni Blvd / Woodlake Blvd neighborhood, NeighborhoodScout has discovered that much of it is vacant. In resort or second-home vacation areas, this naturally occurs because homes and apartments are seasonally occupied, and empty for a portion of the year. In non-vacation or resort areas, however, this can be an indicator of property abandonment or a weak real estate market. The vacancy rate here is 32.4%, which is higher than 95.2% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
