S Oxford Ave / W 7th St is a densely urban neighborhood (based on population density) located in Los Angeles, California.

S Oxford Ave / W 7th St real estate is primarily made up of small (studio to two bedroom) to medium sized (three or four bedroom) apartment complexes/high-rise apartments and small apartment buildings. Most of the residential real estate is renter occupied. Many of the residences in the S Oxford Ave / W 7th St neighborhood are newer, built in 2000 or more recently. A number of residences were also built before 1940.

S Oxford Ave / W 7th St has a 14.3% vacancy rate, which is well above average compared to other U.S. neighborhoods (higher than 74.2% of American neighborhoods). Most vacant housing here is vacant year round. This could either signal that there is a weak demand for real estate in the neighborhood or that large amount of new housing has been built and not yet occupied. Either way, if you live here, you may find many of the homes or apartments are empty.

Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

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: Real Estate

One of the really unique and interesting things about the look and setting of the S Oxford Ave / W 7th St neighborhood is that it is almost entirely dominated by large apartment buildings, such as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments. 97.9% 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 99.6% of all neighborhoods in America.

In addition, the S Oxford Ave / W 7th St 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 94.9% 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, renter-occupied real estate is dominant in the S Oxford Ave / W 7th St neighborhood. The percentage of rental real estate here, according to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, is 92.6%, which is higher than 97.5% 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, the S Oxford Ave / W 7th St neighborhood is very densely populated compared to most U.S. neighborhoods. In fact, with 30,553 persons per square mile in the neighborhood, it is more packed with people than 97.0% of the nation's neighborhoods. Being a walkable neighborhood can help increase property values for the simple reason that people enjoy it and value it. To put it plainly, despite our love affair with the automobile, American's enjoy taking to the streets, sidewalks, paths, and courtyards of a place to get a coffee, relax, and take in the sights and sounds. And, according to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive and first quantitative walkable score index, the S Oxford Ave / W 7th St neighborhood is one of the most walkable neighborhoods in America.

Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation

More people ride the bus in this neighborhood each day to get to work than 97.2% of U.S. neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Car Ownership

Most American households own a car or other vehicle. Many own two cars or perhaps three. In the United States, it is useful to have an automobile not only for commuting, but also for shopping and getting to other services one needs. But NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed that households in the S Oxford Ave / W 7th St neighborhood have a highly unusual car ownership. 24.7% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in 96.3% of U.S. neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Occupations

There are more people living in the S Oxford Ave / W 7th St neighborhood employed as sales and service workers (60.4%) 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 employment picture. But despite that size and importance nationally, this neighborhood still stands out as unique due to the dominance of people living here who work in such occupations.

Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability

Do you like to be surrounded by people from all over the country or world, with different perspectives and life experiences? Or do you instead prefer to be in a neighborhood where most residents have lived there for a long time, creating a sense of cohesiveness? NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals that this neighborhood stands out among American neighborhoods for the uniqueness of the mobility of its residents. What is interesting to note, is that the S Oxford Ave / W 7th St neighborhood has a greater percentage of residents born in another country (56.2%) than are found in 98.8% of all U.S. neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Diversity

Did you know that the S Oxford Ave / W 7th St neighborhood has more Asian and Iranian ancestry people living in it than nearly any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 44.6% of this neighborhood's residents have Asian ancestry and 1.6% have Iranian ancestry.

The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income

There are two complementary measures for understanding the income of a neighborhood's residents: the average and the extremes. While a neighborhood may be relatively wealthy overall, it is equally important to understand the rate of people - particularly children - who are living at or below the federal poverty line, which is extremely low income. Some neighborhoods with a lower average income may actually have a lower childhood poverty rate than another with a higher average income, and this helps us understand the conditions and character of a neighborhood.

The neighbors in the S Oxford Ave / W 7th St neighborhood in Los Angeles are lower-middle income, making it a below average income neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's research shows that this neighborhood has an income lower than 63.0% of U.S. neighborhoods. With 21.7% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 69.6% of U.S. neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

The old saying "you are what you eat" is true. But it is also true that you are what you do for a living. The types of occupations your neighbors have shape their character, and together as a group, their collective occupations shape the culture of a place.

In the S Oxford Ave / W 7th St neighborhood, 41.7% of the working population is employed in executive, management, and professional occupations. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants, with 39.6% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in manufacturing and laborer occupations (12.0%), and 6.7% in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations.

The Neighbors: Languages

The most common language spoken in the S Oxford Ave / W 7th St neighborhood is Spanish, spoken by 34.3% of households. Other important languages spoken here include Korean, English, Chinese and Tagalog (the first language of the Philippine region).

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Boston's Beacon Hill blue-blood streets, Brooklyn's Orthodox Jewish enclaves, Los Angeles' Persian neighborhoods. Each has its own culture derived primarily from the ancestries and culture of the residents who call these neighborhoods home. Likewise, each neighborhood in America has its own culture – some more unique than others – based on lifestyle, occupations, the types of households – and importantly – on the ethnicities and ancestries of the people who live in the neighborhood. Understanding where people came from, who their grandparents or great-grandparents were, can help you understand how a neighborhood is today.

In the S Oxford Ave / W 7th St neighborhood in Los Angeles, CA, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Asian (44.6%). There are also a number of people of Mexican ancestry (16.7%), and residents who report English roots (3.1%), and some of the residents are also of Irania ancestry (1.6%), along with some South American ancestry residents (1.4%), among others. In addition, 56.2% of the residents of this neighborhood were born in another country.

Getting to Work

Even if your neighborhood is walkable, you may still have to drive to your place of work. Some neighborhoods are located where many can get to work in just a few minutes, while others are located such that most residents have a long and arduous commute. The greatest number of commuters in S Oxford Ave / W 7th St neighborhood spend between 30 and 45 minutes commuting one-way to work (34.0% of working residents), which is at or a bit above the average length of a commute across all U.S. neighborhoods.

Here most residents (51.0%) drive alone in a private automobile to get to work. In addition, quite a number also carpool with coworkers, friends, or neighbors to get to work (18.1%) and 17.0% of residents also ride the bus for their daily commute.
