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 Nordhoff St / Sepulveda Blvd neighborhood has more
Armenian and Mexican ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 1.8% of
this neighborhood's residents have Armenian ancestry and 69.7% have Mexican ancestry.
Nordhoff St / Sepulveda Blvd is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 89.0% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Spanish at home. This is a higher percentage than 99.4% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: People
Whether by choice, divorce, or unplanned pregnancy, single moms may have
the toughest job in the book. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals
that the Nordhoff St / Sepulveda Blvd neighborhood has more single mother
households than 98.5% of the neighborhoods in the U.S.
Often high concentrations of single mother homes can be a strong indicator
of family and social issues such as poverty, high rates of school dropouts,
crime, and other societal problems.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
The Nordhoff St / Sepulveda Blvd neighborhood is very densely populated compared to most U.S. neighborhoods. In fact, with 44,168 persons per square mile in the neighborhood, it is more packed with people than 98.3% of the nation's neighborhoods.
In addition, one of the really unique and interesting things about the look and setting of the Nordhoff St / Sepulveda Blvd neighborhood is that it is almost entirely dominated by large apartment buildings, such as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments. 97.7% 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 99.7% of all neighborhoods in America.
Furthermore, the Nordhoff St / Sepulveda 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 92.4% 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.
Also of note, renter-occupied real estate is dominant in the Nordhoff St / Sepulveda Blvd neighborhood. The percentage of rental real estate here, according to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, is 92.3%, which is higher than 97.6% 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.
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 / Sepulveda Blvd
neighborhood has a greater percentage of residents born in another country
(50.6%) than are found in 97.8% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
More people work in manufacturing and as laborers here in the Nordhoff St / Sepulveda Blvd
neighborhood than in 96.3% of the neighborhoods in America. Despite
the loss of manufacturing jobs across the nation, this neighborhood remains
a place where, compared to other parts of the country, you will find many
laborers and manufacturers.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
More people ride the bus in this neighborhood each day to get to work
than 96.0% of U.S. neighborhoods.
