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: Diversity
Did you know that the N Marsalis Ave / E Colorado Blvd neighborhood has more
Mexican ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 63.2% of
this neighborhood's residents have Mexican ancestry.
N Marsalis Ave / E Colorado Blvd is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 69.8% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Spanish at home. This is a higher percentage than 96.2% of all 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.

neighborhood in particular, the problem can be considered acute.

In addition, the N Marsalis Ave / E Colorado 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 90.4% 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.
