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
What you'll find when you visit or move to this neighborhood is one of the most crowded neighborhoods in all of America. With an incredible 94,490 people per square mile, it is more densely populated than 99.6% of America's neighborhoods. Even if you drive or take transit to your place of employment, many
people enjoy being able to walk in their neighborhood. What many people
don't realize is that most of America's premier vacation locations are
also very walkable. The W 3rd St / S Berendo St neighborhood is among
the top 5% of American neighborhoods in terms of walkability.
In addition, the W 3rd St / S Berendo St 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 99.4% 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.
Furthermore, 98.2% of the real estate in the W 3rd St / S Berendo St neighborhood is occupied by renters, which is nearly the highest rate of renter occupancy of any neighborhood in America.
Also of note, the real estate in the W 3rd St / S Berendo St neighborhood really stands out in the way it looks for a unique reason: this neighborhood has a higher proportion of apartment complexes or high-rise apartments than nearly every neighborhood in the country. Most neighborhoods are a mixture of real estate and housing types, but here it is almost entirely dominated by big apartment buildings and complexes. In fact, 89.0% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 98.4% of American neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
More people ride the bus in this neighborhood each day to get to work
than 99.5% 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 3rd St / S Berendo St
What is interesting to note, is that the W 3rd St / S Berendo St
neighborhood has a greater percentage of residents born in another country
(64.7%) than are found in 99.5% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
There are more people living in the W 3rd St / S Berendo St neighborhood
employed as sales and service workers (48.5%) than almost any neighborhood
in the country. From fast-food service workers to major sales accounts,
sales and service workers make up the largest proportion of our national
employment picture. But despite that size and importance nationally, this
neighborhood still stands out as unique due to the dominance of people
living here who work in such occupations.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the W 3rd St / S Berendo St neighborhood has more
South American and Asian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 7.0% of
this neighborhood's residents have South American ancestry and 26.2% have Asian ancestry.
W 3rd St / S Berendo St is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 11.2% 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 99.7% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Car Ownership
Most American households own a car or other vehicle. Many own two cars
or perhaps three. In the United States, it is useful to have an automobile
not only for commuting, but also for shopping and getting to other services
one needs. But NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed that households in
the W 3rd St / S Berendo St neighborhood have a highly unusual car ownership.
23.6% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at
all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
95.5% of U.S. neighborhoods.
