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 Glendale Blvd / Beverly Blvd neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
More people ride the bus in this neighborhood each day to get to work
than 99.8% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
The freedom of moving to new places versus the comfort of home. How much
and how often people move not only can create diverse and worldly neighborhoods,
but simultaneously it can produce a loss of intimacy with one's surroundings
and a lack of connectedness to one's neighbors. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive
research has identified this neighborhood as unique with regard to the
transience of its populace.
What is interesting to note, is that the Glendale Blvd / Beverly Blvd
neighborhood has a greater percentage of residents born in another country
(54.3%) than are found in 98.6% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research identifies the Glendale Blvd / Beverly Blvd
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
43.9% of its working residents employed in such fields, which is a
higher proportion than 98.0% of American neighborhoods.

also very walkable. The Glendale Blvd / Beverly Blvd neighborhood is among
the top 5% of American neighborhoods in terms of walkability.
In addition, the Glendale Blvd / Beverly Blvd 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 90.8% 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.

The percentage of rental real estate here, according to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, is 93.8%, which is higher than 98.0% 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.
Also of note, one of the really unique and interesting things about the look and setting of the Glendale Blvd / Beverly Blvd neighborhood is that it is almost entirely dominated by large apartment buildings, such as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments. 73.4% 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 96.3% of all neighborhoods in America.

Croatian ancestry people living in it than nearly

speak Tagalog, which is the first language of the Philippine region, at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 98.9% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Car Ownership
We Americans love our cars. Not only are they a necessity for most Americans
due to the shape of our neighborhoods and the distances between where we
live, work, shop, and go to school, but we also fancy them. As a result,
most households in America have one, two, or three cars. But NeighborhoodScout's
exclusive analysis shows that the Glendale Blvd / Beverly Blvd neighborhood has
a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.
