Wilshire Blvd / S Burlington Ave is a densely urban neighborhood (based on population density) located in Los Angeles, California.

Wilshire Blvd / S Burlington Ave real estate is primarily made up of small (studio to two bedroom) to medium sized (three or four bedroom) apartment complexes/high-rise apartments and single-family homes. Most of the residential real estate is renter occupied. Many of the residences in the Wilshire Blvd / S Burlington Ave neighborhood are older, well-established, built between 1940 and 1969.

Wilshire Blvd / S Burlington Ave has a 13.6% vacancy rate, which is well above average compared to other U.S. neighborhoods (higher than 69.5% of American neighborhoods). Most vacant housing here is vacant year round.

Either way, if you live here, you may find many of the homes or apartments are empty.

Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

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

Our research revealed that more commuters here take the bus to work (78.2% ride the bus) than 100.0% of all American neighborhoods. If you like the idea of leaving your car and home and hopping the bus to work, this might be a good neighborhood for you to consider.

Notable & Unique: Occupations

NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research identifies the Wilshire Blvd / S Burlington Ave neighborhood as having one of the highest concentrations of people employed in manufacturing or as laborers of any neighborhood in America. In fact, despite the loss of manufacturing jobs nationally, this neighborhood has 73.5% of its working residents employed in such fields, which is a higher proportion than 100.0% of American neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Real Estate

The Wilshire Blvd / S Burlington Ave 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 99.4% 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.

In addition, the real estate in the Wilshire Blvd / S Burlington Ave neighborhood really stands out in the way it looks for a unique reason: this neighborhood has a higher proportion of apartment complexes or high-rise apartments than nearly every neighborhood in the country. Most neighborhoods are a mixture of real estate and housing types, but here it is almost entirely dominated by big apartment buildings and complexes. In fact, 97.0% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 99.6% of American neighborhoods.

Furthermore, 100.0% of the real estate in the Wilshire Blvd / S Burlington Ave neighborhood is occupied by renters, which is nearly the highest rate of renter occupancy of any neighborhood in America.

This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in 99.8% of U.S. neighborhoods.

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 Wilshire Blvd / S Burlington Ave neighborhood has a greater percentage of residents born in another country (64.7%) than are found in 99.5% of all U.S. neighborhoods.

The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income

There are two complementary measures for understanding the income of a neighborhood's residents: the average and the extremes. While a neighborhood may be relatively wealthy overall, it is equally important to understand the rate of people - particularly children - who are living at or below the federal poverty line, which is extremely low income. Some neighborhoods with a lower average income may actually have a lower childhood poverty rate than another with a higher average income, and this helps us understand the conditions and character of a neighborhood.

The neighbors in the Wilshire Blvd / S Burlington Ave neighborhood in Los Angeles are low income, making it among the lowest income neighborhoods in America. NeighborhoodScout's research shows that this neighborhood has an income lower than 89.9% of U.S. neighborhoods. With 77.3% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 99.0% of U.S. neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

What we choose to do for a living reflects who we are. Each neighborhood has a different mix of occupations represented, and together these tell you about the neighborhood and help you understand if this neighborhood may fit your lifestyle.

In the Wilshire Blvd / S Burlington Ave neighborhood, 73.5% of the working population is employed in manufacturing and laborer occupations.

Other residents here are employed in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations (4.6%), and 3.0% in executive, management, and professional occupations.

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Culture is shared learned behavior. We learn it from our parents, their parents, our houses of worship, and much of our culture – our learned behavior – comes from our ancestors. That is why ancestry and ethnicity can be so interesting and important to understand: places with concentrations of people of one or more ancestries often express those shared learned behaviors and this gives each neighborhood its own culture. Even different neighborhoods in the same city can have drastically different cultures.

In the Wilshire Blvd / S Burlington Ave neighborhood in Los Angeles, CA, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Mexican (34.6%).

Getting to Work

The greatest number of commuters in Wilshire Blvd / S Burlington Ave neighborhood spend between 30 and 45 minutes commuting one-way to work (43.1% of working residents), which is at or a bit above the average length of a commute across all U.S. neighborhoods.
