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
Some neighborhoods have more internal cohesiveness than others. While other
neighborhoods feel like a collection of strangers who just happen to live
near each other. Sometimes this comes down to not only the personalities
of the people in a place, but how long people have been together in that
neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's research has revealed some interesting
things about the rootedness of people in the N Marsalis Ave / E Colorado Blvd
What is interesting to note, is that the N Marsalis Ave / E Colorado Blvd
neighborhood has a greater percentage of residents born in another country
(46.3%) than are found in 96.6% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research identifies the N Marsalis Ave / E Colorado Blvd
neighborhood as having one of the highest concentrations of people employed
in manufacturing or as laborers of any neighborhood in America. In fact,
despite the loss of manufacturing jobs nationally, this neighborhood has
41.6% of its working residents employed in such fields, which is a
higher proportion than 96.5% of American neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: People
Of note, 60.6% of the children in this area
live in poverty; an extraordinarily high percentage compared to other
neighborhoods in the nation. In a nation where approximately one in
four children grows up in poverty, this neighborhood stands out for
the depth of the problem manifested here.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
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.
Furthermore, 86.0% of the real estate in the N Marsalis Ave / E Colorado Blvd neighborhood is occupied by renters, which is nearly the highest rate of renter occupancy of any neighborhood in America.
Also of note, one of the really unique and interesting things about the look and setting of the N Marsalis Ave / E Colorado Blvd neighborhood is that it is almost entirely dominated by large apartment buildings, such as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments. 70.1% of the residential real estate here is classified as such. This puts this neighborhood on the map as having a higher proportion of large apartment buildings than 95.8% of all neighborhoods in America.
