The way a neighborhood looks and feels when you walk or drive around it, from
its setting, its buildings, and its flavor, can make all the difference. This
neighborhood has some really cool things about the way it looks and feels as
revealed by NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research. This might include anything
from the housing stock to the types of households living here to how people

Did you know that the Hollywood Blvd / N Martel Ave neighborhood has more
Russian and Romanian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 17.8% of
this neighborhood's residents have Russian ancestry and 2.5% have Romanian ancestry.
Hollywood Blvd / N Martel Ave is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 21.9% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Russian at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.9% of the neighborhoods in America.

Hollywood Blvd / N Martel Ave neighborhood stands out as being ranked among
the lowest 0.1% of neighborhoods affected by this global
In addition, the types of households in a neighborhood can tell a lot about the character
and lifestyle of those living here. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis
reveals that this neighborhood, above nearly every neighborhood in America,
has a greater percentage of its residents living alone: 58.4%. This
is a higher percent living alone than we found in 99.0% of
all U.S. neighborhoods. Often residents who live alone are new arrivals
to an area who are single, and often senior citizens who have lost a spouse.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
A unique way of commuting is simply not to. And in the Hollywood Blvd / N Martel Ave
neighborhood, analysis shows that 14.0% of the residents work
from home, avoiding a commute altogether. This may not seem like a large number,
but it is a higher proportion of people working from home than is found in
97.9% of the neighborhoods in the United States.
One thing NeighborhoodScout's research reveals is that the wealthier and/or
more isolated the neighborhood, the greater the proportion of residents who
choose to work from home.
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 Hollywood Blvd / N Martel Ave
neighborhood has a greater percentage of residents born in another country
(45.7%) than are found in 96.5% of all U.S. neighborhoods.

In addition, the Hollywood Blvd / N Martel Ave 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 97.3% 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, the real estate in the Hollywood Blvd / N Martel Ave 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, 91.6% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 98.7% of American neighborhoods.
Also of note, 83.7% of the real estate in the Hollywood Blvd / N Martel Ave neighborhood is occupied by renters, which is nearly the highest rate of renter occupancy of any neighborhood in America.
Notable & Unique: Length of Commute

a length of commute that is notable.
Long commutes can be brutal. They take time, money, and energy, leaving less
of you for yourself and your family. The residents of the
Hollywood Blvd / N Martel Ave neighborhood unfortunately have the distinction of having,
on average, a longer commute than most any neighborhood in America.
8.4% of commuters here travel more than one hour just one-way

round-trip commutes is higher than NeighborhoodScout found in 95.6%
of all neighborhoods in America.
