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: Occupations
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research identifies the W Pacific Coast Hwy / Magnolia Ave
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
45.4% of its working residents employed in such fields, which is a
higher proportion than 98.5% of American neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
More people ride the bus in this neighborhood each day to get to work
than 97.9% of 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 W Pacific Coast Hwy / Magnolia Ave
What is interesting to note, is that the W Pacific Coast Hwy / Magnolia Ave
neighborhood has a greater percentage of residents born in another country
(48.6%) than are found in 97.3% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the W Pacific Coast Hwy / Magnolia Ave neighborhood has more
Mexican ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 65.8% of
this neighborhood's residents have Mexican ancestry.
W Pacific Coast Hwy / Magnolia Ave is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.3% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Mon-Khmer, which is the dominant language of Cambodia, at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 98.6% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: People
Single parenting is hard. But you don't have to tell the
W Pacific Coast Hwy / Magnolia Ave neighborhood about it; they already know. 19.0%
of this neighborhood's households are run by single mothers, which is a
higher concentration than NeighborhoodScout found in 95.3%
of American neighborhoods. Further NeighborhoodScout research showed strong
statistical correlations among high rates of children living in single
parent households, and neighborhood crime, particularly violent crime,
neighborhood poverty, and, importantly, the percentage of low weight births
and rates of infant mortality.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, renter-occupied real estate is dominant in the W Pacific Coast Hwy / Magnolia Ave neighborhood. The percentage of rental real estate here, according to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, is 93.3%, which is higher than 97.9% of the neighborhoods in America. If you were to buy and live in the property you bought here, you would be almost alone in doing so.
Furthermore, the W Pacific Coast Hwy / Magnolia Ave 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 84.0% 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.
Also of note, one of the really unique and interesting things about the look and setting of the W Pacific Coast Hwy / Magnolia Ave neighborhood is that it is almost entirely dominated by large apartment buildings, such as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments. 69.1% 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 95.6% of all neighborhoods in America.
