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 Ave / N Venice 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 Ave / N Venice 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.
In addition, the Pacific Ave / N Venice 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 87.3% 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.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
If your dream is to be able to ride your bike to work each day, look no
further than this unique neighborhood. With 8.9% of residents in
the Pacific Ave / N Venice Blvd neighborhood commuting on a bicycle to and
from work daily, this neighborhood has more bicycle commuters than
99.2% of all neighborhoods in the U.S., according to
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis.
Also, a unique way of commuting is simply not to. And in the Pacific Ave / N Venice Blvd
neighborhood, analysis shows that 12.1% 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
96.3% 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.
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: 56.2%. This
is a higher percent living alone than we found in 98.7% 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.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Pacific Ave / N Venice Blvd neighborhood has more
Russian and Romanian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 5.2% of
this neighborhood's residents have Russian ancestry and 0.8% have Romanian ancestry.
Pacific Ave / N Venice Blvd is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.8% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak German at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 97.2% of the neighborhoods in America.
