Many things matter about a neighborhood, but the first thing most people notice
is the way a neighborhood looks and its particular character. For example, one
might notice whether the buildings all date from a certain time period or whether
shop signs are in multiple languages. This particular neighborhood in Los Angeles,
the Roscoe Blvd / Hayvenhurst Ave neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
A unique way of commuting is simply not to. And in the Roscoe Blvd / Hayvenhurst Ave
neighborhood, analysis shows that 34.2% 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
99.9% 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.
Also, would you like to be able to ride your bike to work? If you are attracted
to the idea of getting a little exercise of the two-wheeled type while
reducing your carbon footprint, bicycling to work might be the answer.
But which neighborhood you live in can make this either impossible, or
alternatively, a great and realistic option. NeighborhoodScout's analysis
revealed that the Roscoe Blvd / Hayvenhurst Ave neighborhood is a fantastic
option for bicycle commuters, as 16.0% of commuters here do ride
their bikes to and from work on a daily basis. This is a higher amount
than we found in 99.8% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
From major sales accounts to fast-food workers, sales and service employees
are often the backbone of the local economy. In the Roscoe Blvd / Hayvenhurst Ave
neighborhood, they truly stand out. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis
identifies this neighborhood as having a higher percentage of sales and
service workers than 99.9% of all American neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Diversity

Portuguese ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 15.6% of

In addition, single parenting is hard. But you don't have to tell the
Roscoe Blvd / Hayvenhurst Ave neighborhood about it; they already know. 19.4%
of this neighborhood's households are run by single mothers, which is a
higher concentration than NeighborhoodScout found in 95.7%
of American neighborhoods. Further NeighborhoodScout research showed strong
statistical correlations among high rates of children living in single
parent households, and neighborhood crime, particularly violent crime,
neighborhood poverty, and, importantly, the percentage of low weight births
and rates of infant mortality.
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.
In the Roscoe Blvd / Hayvenhurst Ave neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 96.2% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, this neighborhood has the distinction of having one of the lowest real estate vacancy rates of any neighborhood in America. With just 0.0% of the real estate vacant, this indicates an exceptionally strong demand for real estate in the Roscoe Blvd / Hayvenhurst Ave neighborhood, and/or an issue with creating enough supply for the demand. This could have the effect of increasing real estate prices, increasing supply to meet demand, or both.
