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 Rose Ave / S Centinela Ave neighborhood has more
Iranian and Eastern European ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 3.6% of
this neighborhood's residents have Iranian ancestry and 2.5% have Eastern European ancestry.
Rose Ave / S Centinela Ave is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 3.6% 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 99.4% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
Executives, managers and professionals make up 68.2% of the workforce
in the Rose Ave / S Centinela Ave neighborhood which, according to
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis, is a higher proportion of such
high-level people than is found in 97.4% of the neighborhoods

Notable & Unique: People
If you're a regular supporter of the arts and enjoy outings to the
theatre, weekend boutique-ing, or even a finely aged wine with dinner,
than you're in good company with the people of the Rose Ave / S Centinela Ave
neighborhood. This neighborhood is uniquely immersed with more "urban
sophisticates" than 97.1% of neighborhoods across the
country. The people here truly stand out as a class among their own.
They are an exclusive community characterized by refined tastes,
cultural inclinations, and the means to live well. Urban sophisticates
live a big city lifestyle, whether or not they live in or near a big
city. They are educated executives or managers by week, and serial
patrons of the arts by weekend. If this lifestyle pertains to you,
than you'll certainly feel right at home in the Rose Ave / S Centinela Ave
In addition to being an excellent choice for urban sophisticates, this
neighborhood is also a very good choice for highly educated executives, families with school-aged children and active retirees.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
Some neighborhoods have more internal cohesiveness than others. While other
neighborhoods feel like a collection of strangers who just happen to live
near each other. Sometimes this comes down to not only the personalities
of the people in a place, but how long people have been together in that
neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's research has revealed some interesting
things about the rootedness of people in the Rose Ave / S Centinela Ave
More residents of the Rose Ave / S Centinela Ave neighborhood live here
today that also were living in this same neighborhood five years ago
than is found in 97.1% of U.S. neighborhoods. This neighborhood
is really made up of people who know each other, don't move often, and
have lived here in this very neighborhood for quite a while.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
A unique way of commuting is simply not to. And in the Rose Ave / S Centinela Ave
neighborhood, analysis shows that 11.4% 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
95.5% 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: Real Estate
In addition, most neighborhoods have a mixture of ages of homes in them, from new to old, but this neighborhood stands out due to its concentration of residential real estate built in one time frame: from 1940 through 1969, generally considered older, well-established homes. This was a busy time in America for home construction. After the end of World War II, as GIs came home, bought newly built homes on the edges of cities with the help of the GI Bill, and began their families. This housing era generally coincides with the 'Baby Boom' generation (1945 - 1964), and many baby boomers grew up in homes built in this era. But what is so interesting about the Rose Ave / S Centinela Ave neighborhood, is that an incredible 91.1% of the homes here were built in this era. So when you walk its streets or drive through, this neighborhood has a look and feel that harkens to that era in American life, a very important slice of Americana.
Furthermore, this Rose Ave / S Centinela Ave neighborhood has earned the amazing distinction of having one of the highest rates of detached, single-family homes of any neighborhood in the U.S. With 97.9% of the residential real estate here made up of free-standing single-family homes, there is a greater proportion of single-family homes here than in 96.9% of all neighborhoods in America.
