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 Inglewood,
the W Century Blvd / Crenshaw Blvd neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.

higher proportion than 97.7% of American neighborhoods.

the toughest job in the book. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals

Often high concentrations of single mother homes can be a strong indicator
of family and social issues such as poverty, high rates of school dropouts,
crime, and other societal problems.
