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: Length of Commute
Regardless of the means by which residents commute, this neighborhood has
a length of commute that is notable.
Long commutes can be brutal. They take time, money, and energy, leaving less
of you for yourself and your family. The residents of the
Sepulveda Blvd / Roscoe Blvd neighborhood unfortunately have the distinction of having,
on average, a longer commute than most any neighborhood in America.
12.7% of commuters here travel more than one hour just one-way
to work. That is more than two hours per day. This percentage with two-hour +
round-trip commutes is higher than NeighborhoodScout found in 98.8%
of all neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
The freedom of moving to new places versus the comfort of home. How much
and how often people move not only can create diverse and worldly neighborhoods,
but simultaneously it can produce a loss of intimacy with one's surroundings
and a lack of connectedness to one's neighbors. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive
research has identified this neighborhood as unique with regard to the
transience of its populace.
What is interesting to note, is that the Sepulveda Blvd / Roscoe Blvd
neighborhood has a greater percentage of residents born in another country
(53.1%) than are found in 98.4% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Significantly, 76.8% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Spanish at home. This is a higher percentage than 98.2% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
More people ride the bus in this neighborhood each day to get to work
than 97.5% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
The Sepulveda Blvd / Roscoe Blvd neighborhood is very densely populated compared to most U.S. neighborhoods. In fact, with 28,804 persons per square mile in the neighborhood, it is more packed with people than 97.0% of the nation's neighborhoods.
In addition, one of the really unique and interesting things about the look and setting of the Sepulveda Blvd / Roscoe Blvd neighborhood is that it is almost entirely dominated by large apartment buildings, such as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments. 95.5% 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 99.3% of all neighborhoods in America.
Furthermore, 99.1% of the real estate in the Sepulveda Blvd / Roscoe Blvd neighborhood is occupied by renters, which is nearly the highest rate of renter occupancy of any neighborhood in America.
Also of note, the Sepulveda Blvd / Roscoe 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 93.5% 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.

living in the Sepulveda Blvd / Roscoe Blvd neighborhood.
