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: Modes of Transportation
More people ride the bus in this neighborhood each day to get to work
than 99.6% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Also, if your dream is to be able to ride your bike to work each day, look no
further than this unique neighborhood. With 7.8% of residents in
the Venice Blvd / Toberman St neighborhood commuting on a bicycle to and
from work daily, this neighborhood has more bicycle commuters than
98.9% of all neighborhoods in the U.S., according to
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis.
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.
What is interesting to note, is that the Venice Blvd / Toberman St
neighborhood has a greater percentage of residents born in another country
(59.0%) than are found in 99.1% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Car Ownership
Most American households own a car or other vehicle. Many own two cars
or perhaps three. In the United States, it is useful to have an automobile
not only for commuting, but also for shopping and getting to other services
one needs. But NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed that households in
the Venice Blvd / Toberman St neighborhood have a highly unusual car ownership.
37.4% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at
all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
97.7% of U.S. neighborhoods.

Mexican and Greek ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 71.0% of
this neighborhood's residents have Mexican ancestry and 2.2% have Greek ancestry.
Venice Blvd / Toberman St is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 91.8% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Spanish at home. This is a higher percentage than 99.6% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
There are more people living in the Venice Blvd / Toberman St neighborhood
employed as sales and service workers (56.4%) than almost any neighborhood
in the country. From fast-food service workers to major sales accounts,
sales and service workers make up the largest proportion of our national
employment picture. But despite that size and importance nationally, this
neighborhood still stands out as unique due to the dominance of people
living here who work in such occupations.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
Being a walkable neighborhood can help increase property values for the simple reason that people enjoy it and value it. To put it plainly, despite our love affair with the automobile, American's enjoy taking to the streets, sidewalks, paths, and courtyards of a place to get a coffee, relax, and take in the sights and sounds. And, according to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive and first quantitative walkable score index, the Venice Blvd / Toberman St neighborhood is one of the most walkable neighborhoods in America.
In addition, renter-occupied real estate is dominant in the Venice Blvd / Toberman St neighborhood. The percentage of rental real estate here, according to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, is 90.6%, which is higher than 97.2% of the neighborhoods in America.
