When you see a neighborhood for the first time, the most important thing
is often the way it looks, like its homes and its setting. Some places look
the same, but they only reveal their true character after living in them for
a while because they contain a unique mix of occupational or cultural groups.
This neighborhood is very unique in some important ways, according to
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive exploration and analysis.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Los Feliz Blvd / N Commonwealth Ave neighborhood has more
Lebanese and Croatian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 3.4% of
this neighborhood's residents have Lebanese ancestry and 2.1% have Croatian ancestry.
Los Feliz Blvd / N Commonwealth Ave is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 0.9% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Hebrew at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 98.0% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
Executives, managers and professionals make up 75.9% of the workforce
in the Los Feliz Blvd / N Commonwealth Ave neighborhood which, according to
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis, is a higher proportion of such
high-level people than is found in 99.3% of the neighborhoods
in America. For this reason, this neighborhood really stands out as unique.
Notable & Unique: People
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: 59.2%. This
is a higher percent living alone than we found in 99.1% 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.
In addition, the rate of college educated adults in the Los Feliz Blvd / N Commonwealth Ave neighborhood
is a unique characteristic of the neighborhood. 73.4% 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
bachelor's degree. The rate here is higher than NeighborhoodScout found in
97.4% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
In the Los Feliz Blvd / N Commonwealth Ave neighborhood, many people's commute means
walking from the bedroom to the home office. NeighborhoodScout's analysis
found that 17.3% of residents worked from home. This may not
seem like a large number, but Scout's research shows that this is a higher
percentage of people working from home than 99.0% of the
neighborhoods in America. Often people who work from home are engaged in
the creative or technological economy, such as is found in areas around Boston,
and in Silicon Valley. Other times, people may be engaged in other businesses
like trading stocks from home, or running a small beauty salon.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, the Los Feliz Blvd / N Commonwealth 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 89.0% 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 Los Feliz Blvd / N Commonwealth 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, 79.3% 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.
