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
We Americans love our cars. Not only are they a necessity for most Americans
due to the shape of our neighborhoods and the distances between where we
live, work, shop, and go to school, but we also fancy them. As a result,
most households in America have one, two, or three cars. But NeighborhoodScout's
exclusive analysis shows that the Biola U / Biola Ave neighborhood has
a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.
Residents of this neighborhood must really love automobiles. NeighborhoodScout's
Analysis reveals that 31.6% of the households here have four, five,
or more cars. That is more cars per household than in 99.1% of
the neighborhoods in the nation.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Biola U / Biola Ave neighborhood has more
Spanish ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 2.3% of
this neighborhood's residents have Spanish ancestry.
Biola U / Biola Ave is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 3.4% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Korean at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 97.8% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: People
One of the really interesting characteristics about the
Biola U / Biola Ave neighborhood is that, according to NeighborhoodScout's
exclusive research, it is an excellent choice in which to reside for
college students. Due to its popularity among college students who
already choose to live here, its walkability, and its above average
safety from crime, the neighborhood is ideal for prospective or
already-enrolled college students. Between semesters and during
school breaks, you'll notice that the excitement here fluctuates with
the college seasons. Despite the excitement however, parents of college-age
children can rest easy knowing that this
neighborhood has an above average safety rating. For each of these
reasons, the neighborhood is rated among the
top 1.9% of college-friendly places to live in
the state of California.
In addition to being an excellent choice for college students, this
neighborhood is also a very good choice for families with school-aged children.
In addition, neighborhoodScout's analysis shows that the Biola U / Biola Ave
neighborhood has a greater concentration of residents currently enrolled
in college than 95.1% of the neighborhoods in the U.S. With
11.8% of the population here attending college, this is very
much a college-focused neighborhood.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, most neighborhoods have a mixture of ages of homes in them, from new to old, but this neighborhood stands out due to its concentration of residential real estate built in one time frame: from 1940 through 1969, generally considered older, well-established homes. This was a busy time in America for home construction. After the end of World War II, as GIs came home, bought newly built homes on the edges of cities with the help of the GI Bill, and began their families. This housing era generally coincides with the 'Baby Boom' generation (1945 - 1964), and many baby boomers grew up in homes built in this era. But what is so interesting about the Biola U / Biola Ave neighborhood, is that an incredible 90.5% of the homes here were built in this era. So when you walk its streets or drive through, this neighborhood has a look and feel that harkens to that era in American life, a very important slice of Americana.
