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 Coco Ave / Pinafore St neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.

than 98.7% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: People
The Coco Ave / Pinafore St neighborhood has a greater percentage
of children living in poverty (74.0%) than found in

is one of the challenges facing America, and the world, and in this
neighborhood in particular, the problem can be considered acute.

The Coco Ave / Pinafore St neighborhood is very densely populated compared to most U.S. neighborhoods. In fact, with 36,089 persons per square mile in the neighborhood, it is more packed with people than 97.7% of the nation's neighborhoods.
In addition, 100.0% of the real estate in the Coco Ave / Pinafore St neighborhood is occupied by renters, which is nearly the highest rate of renter occupancy of any neighborhood in America.
Furthermore, the real estate in the Coco Ave / Pinafore 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, 96.2% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 99.4% of American neighborhoods.
Also of note, the Coco Ave / Pinafore 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 94.2% 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.
