Notable & Unique: Real Estate

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 6th St / W 5th St neighborhood. What is interesting to note, is that the W 6th St / W 5th St neighborhood has a greater percentage of residents born in another country (49.1%) than are found in 97.5% of all U.S. neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Car Ownership

But households in the W 6th St / W 5th St neighborhood buck this trend. 27.9% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in 96.4% of U.S. neighborhoods.


The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income

There are two complementary measures for understanding the income of a neighborhood's residents: the average and the extremes. While a neighborhood may be relatively wealthy overall, it is equally important to understand the rate of people - particularly children - who are living at or below the federal poverty line, which is extremely low income. Some neighborhoods with a lower average income may actually have a lower childhood poverty rate than another with a higher average income, and this helps us understand the conditions and character of a neighborhood.

The neighbors in the W 6th St / W 5th St neighborhood in Los Angeles are low income, making it among the lowest income neighborhoods in America. NeighborhoodScout's research shows that this neighborhood has an income lower than 87.6% of U.S. neighborhoods. With 46.3% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 88.1% of U.S. neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

The old saying "you are what you eat" is true. But it is also true that you are what you do for a living. The types of occupations your neighbors have shape their character, and together as a group, their collective occupations shape the culture of a place.

In the W 6th St / W 5th St neighborhood, 37.5% of the working population is employed in executive, management, and professional occupations. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants, with 28.1% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in manufacturing and laborer occupations (20.0%), and 14.3% in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations.

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Culture is the shared learned behavior of peoples. Undeniably, different ethnicities and ancestries have different cultural traditions, and as a result, neighborhoods with concentrations of residents of one or another ethnicities or ancestries will express those cultures. It is what makes the North End in Boston so fun to visit for the Italian restaurants, bakeries, culture, and charm, and similarly, why people enjoy visiting Chinatown in San Francisco.

In the W 6th St / W 5th St neighborhood in Los Angeles, CA, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Mexican (27.5%). There are also a number of people of Asian ancestry (23.9%), and residents who report Irish roots (4.3%), and some of the residents are also of Italian ancestry (3.5%), along with some German ancestry residents (2.2%), among others. In addition, 49.1% of the residents of this neighborhood were born in another country.

The Neighbors: Languages

The languages spoken by people in this neighborhood are diverse. These are tabulated as the languages people preferentially speak when they are at home with their families. The most common language spoken in the W 6th St / W 5th St neighborhood is Spanish, spoken by 42.0% of households. Other important languages spoken here include English, Korean, Chinese and Japanese.

Getting to Work

How you get to work – car, bus, train or other means – and how much of your day it takes to do so is a large quality of life and financial issue. Especially with gasoline prices rising and expected to continue doing so, the length and means of one's commute can be a financial burden. Some neighborhoods are physically located so that many residents have to drive in their own car, others are set up so many walk to work, or can take a train, bus, or bike. The greatest number of commuters in W 6th St / W 5th St neighborhood spend between 30 and 45 minutes commuting one-way to work (45.3% of working residents), which is at or a bit above the average length of a commute across all U.S. neighborhoods.

In addition, quite a number also ride the bus to get to work (28.0%) and 14.4% of residents also hop out the door and walk to work for their daily commute. In a neighborhood like this, as in most of the nation, many residents find owning a car useful for getting to work.
