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: 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 Nordhoff St / Cedros Ave
neighborhood has a greater percentage of residents born in another country
(59.3%) than are found in 99.1% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
In the Nordhoff St / Cedros Ave neighborhood, carpooling is still a popular

employed as sales and service workers (52.8%) than almost any neighborhood
in the country. From fast-food service workers to major sales accounts,
sales and service workers make up the largest proportion of our national

neighborhood still stands out as unique due to the dominance of people
living here who work in such occupations.

In addition, the real estate in the Nordhoff St / Cedros 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, 78.4% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 97.1% of American neighborhoods.
