Many things matter about a neighborhood, but the first thing most people notice
is the way a neighborhood looks and its particular character. For example, one
might notice whether the buildings all date from a certain time period or whether
shop signs are in multiple languages. This particular neighborhood in Los Angeles,
the Cheremoya Ave / Graciosa Dr neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.

Armenian and Romanian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 6.0% of
this neighborhood's residents have Armenian ancestry and 1.6% have Romanian ancestry.
Cheremoya Ave / Graciosa Dr is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 4.4% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak French at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.1% of the neighborhoods in America.

99.6% of the neighborhoods in America.
In addition, the rate of college educated adults in the Cheremoya Ave / Graciosa Dr neighborhood
is a unique characteristic of the neighborhood. 66.5% of
adults here have received at least a 4-year bachelor's degree, compared to
the average neighborhood in America, which has 22.6% of the adults with a

Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
In the Cheremoya Ave / Graciosa Dr neighborhood, many people's commute means
walking from the bedroom to the home office. NeighborhoodScout's analysis
found that 13.7% of residents worked from home. This may not
seem like a large number, but Scout's research shows that this is a higher

Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, the Cheremoya Ave / Graciosa Dr 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 are a mixture of real estate and housing types, but here it is almost entirely dominated by big apartment buildings and complexes. In fact, 79.5% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 97.2% of American neighborhoods.
