Many things matter about a neighborhood, but the first thing most people notice
is the way a neighborhood looks and its particular character. For example, one
might notice whether the buildings all date from a certain time period or whether
shop signs are in multiple languages. This particular neighborhood in Las Vegas,
the E Sahara Ave / S Lamb Blvd neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.
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.
In the E Sahara Ave / S Lamb Blvd neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 98.5% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
There are more people living in the E Sahara Ave / S Lamb Blvd neighborhood
employed as sales and service workers (50.8%) 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.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the E Sahara Ave / S Lamb Blvd neighborhood has more
Cuban and Spanish ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 4.0% of
this neighborhood's residents have Cuban ancestry and 1.6% have Spanish ancestry.
E Sahara Ave / S Lamb Blvd is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 0.9% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Native American languages at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 98.1% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
If your dream is to be able to ride your bike to work each day, look no
further than this unique neighborhood. With 3.5% of residents in
the E Sahara Ave / S Lamb Blvd neighborhood commuting on a bicycle to and
from work daily, this neighborhood has more bicycle commuters than
95.7% of all neighborhoods in the U.S., according to
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, the E Sahara Ave / S Lamb Blvd neighborhood is very unique in that it has one of the highest proportions of one, two, or no bedroom real estate of any neighborhood in America. Most neighborhoods have a mixture of home or apartment sizes from small to large, but here the concentration of studios and other small living spaces is at near-record heights. With 90.6% of the real estate here of this small size, this most assuredly is a notable feature that makes this neighborhood unique, along with just a handful of other neighborhoods in the U.S. that share this characteristic.
Furthermore, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the E Sahara Ave / S Lamb 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, 89.5% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
