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: Car Ownership
American households most often have a car, and regularly they have two or
three. But households in the Beach Blvd / Talbert Ave neighborhood buck
Residents of this neighborhood must really love automobiles. NeighborhoodScout's

or more cars. That is more cars per household than in 99.0% of

Mexican ancestry people living in it than nearly

Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
Would you like to be able to ride your bike to work? If you are attracted
to the idea of getting a little exercise of the two-wheeled type while

But which neighborhood you live in can make this either impossible, or
alternatively, a great and realistic option. NeighborhoodScout's analysis

option for bicycle commuters, as 3.7% of commuters here do ride

with different perspectives and life experiences? Or do you instead prefer
to be in a neighborhood where most residents have lived there for a long
time, creating a sense of cohesiveness? NeighborhoodScout's analysis
reveals that this neighborhood stands out among American neighborhoods
for the uniqueness of the mobility of its residents.
What is interesting to note, is that the Beach Blvd / Talbert Ave

(42.4%) than are found in 95.2% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, three-deckers, duplexes, old Victorian homes cut up into apartments. Independent stores on the corner selling pizza. These are some of the hallmarks of neighborhoods with lots of small 2, 3, and 4 unit apartment buildings.
