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: Real Estate
Do you like a coastal setting? If so, this neighborhood may be to your liking.
The E Bay Shore Walk / E Ocean Blvd neighborhood is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet.
Often such coastal places have amenities and recreational activities on the waterfront
that are attractive to residents and visitors alike.
In addition to being coastal, E Bay Shore Walk / E Ocean Blvd is a very nautical neighborhood,
meaning that it is somewhat historic, walkable, densely populated and
on the water. This gives the neighborhood a very nautical feel,
with some seaside and shipping feel, which some may really enjoy the sights
and sounds of.
Notable & Unique: People
Astoundingly, the E Bay Shore Walk / E Ocean Blvd neighborhood has one of the highest
concentrations of divorcees living here than of any neighborhood, a
higher concentration than NeighborhoodScout found in 99.9%
of U.S. neighborhoods. This may be because people living here divorce
more often than others, or that divorced people move here after they
become divorced. If you are divorced, you will be in good company in
this particular Long Beach neighborhood.
In addition, of note is NeighborhoodScout's research finding that the
E Bay Shore Walk / E Ocean Blvd neighborhood has some of the lowest rates of children
living in poverty of any neighborhood in the United States. In a nation
where approximately 1 in 4 children are living in poverty, the
E Bay Shore Walk / E Ocean Blvd community truly stands out from the rest in this regard.
Also, think about the people you know personally. How many of them would
purchase box seats to opening night at the symphony? How many of them
regularly attend gallery openings, or are the first to reserve tickets
to opening night at the ballet? If they're like most of us, they don't
do any of these things. But if you're among an exclusive crowd of wealthy
and refined patrons of the arts, then you'll feel right at home in
the E Bay Shore Walk / E Ocean Blvd neighborhood: a neighborhood in which more
"urban sophisticates" live than 95.8% of neighborhoods
across the U.S. Here, your neighbors are defined as having urbane
tastes in literature, music, live theatre and the arts. They are wealthy,
educated, travel in style, and live a big city lifestyle whether or
not they live in or near a big city.
In addition to being an excellent choice for urban sophisticates, this
neighborhood is also a very good choice for active retirees.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
A unique way of commuting is simply not to. And in the E Bay Shore Walk / E Ocean Blvd
neighborhood, analysis shows that 22.3% of the residents work
from home, avoiding a commute altogether. This may not seem like a large number,
but it is a higher proportion of people working from home than is found in
99.6% of the neighborhoods in the United States.
One thing NeighborhoodScout's research reveals is that the wealthier and/or
more isolated the neighborhood, the greater the proportion of residents who
choose to work from home.
Notable & Unique: Length of Commute

a length of commute that is notable.

of you for yourself and your family. The residents of the

round-trip commutes is higher than NeighborhoodScout found in 97.7%
of all neighborhoods in America.

E Bay Shore Walk / E Ocean Blvd is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 2.0% of its residents five years old and above primarily
