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
Pacific Coast Hwy / W Sunset Blvd is a neighborhood that is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet.
Many times, such places have amenities that bring locals and visitors to the
waterfront for recreational activities or to check out the scenery.
In some densely populated areas that are less financially well-off, the neighborhood
waterfront can be relatively industrial and less open to recreation.
In addition to being coastal, Pacific Coast Hwy / W Sunset Blvd is a very nautical neighborhood,
meaning that it is somewhat historic, walkable, densely populated and
on the water. This gives the neighborhood a very nautical feel,
with some seaside and shipping feel, which some may really enjoy the sights
and sounds of.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Pacific Coast Hwy / W Sunset Blvd neighborhood has more
Iranian and Russian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 7.0% of
this neighborhood's residents have Iranian ancestry and 15.4% have Russian ancestry.
Pacific Coast Hwy / W Sunset Blvd is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 7.0% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Persian at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.8% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
The Pacific Coast Hwy / W Sunset Blvd neighborhood has a higher proportion of
its residents employed as executives, managers and professionals than
99.5% of the neighborhoods in American. In fact, 77.1%
of the employed people here make a living as an executive, a manager, or
other professional. With such a high concentration, this truly shapes
the character of this neighborhood, and to a large degree defines what
this neighborhood is about.
Notable & Unique: People
Do you like to read, write, and learn? Are you curious about the world? If
so, this neighborhood may be a good fit for you. NeighborhoodScout's research
revealed that a full 74.9% of the adults living in the
Pacific Coast Hwy / W Sunset Blvd neighborhood have earned at least a bachelor's
degree. This is a higher rate than NeighborhoodScout found in 97.8%
of U.S. neighborhoods. In this way, this neighborhood truly stands out.
In addition, think about the people you know personally. How many of them would
purchase box seats to opening night at the symphony? How many of them
regularly attend gallery openings, or are the first to reserve tickets
to opening night at the ballet? If they're like most of us, they don't
do any of these things. But if you're among an exclusive crowd of wealthy
and refined patrons of the arts, then you'll feel right at home in
the Pacific Coast Hwy / W Sunset Blvd neighborhood: a neighborhood in which more
"urban sophisticates" live than 97.7% of neighborhoods
across the U.S. Here, your neighbors are defined as having urbane
tastes in literature, music, live theatre and the arts. They are wealthy,
educated, travel in style, and live a big city lifestyle whether or
not they live in or near a big city.
In addition to being an excellent choice for urban sophisticates, this
neighborhood is also a very good choice for highly educated executives and active retirees.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
A unique way of commuting is simply not to. And in the Pacific Coast Hwy / W Sunset Blvd
neighborhood, analysis shows that 11.2% 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
95.3% 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.
