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 Oxnard,
the Justin Way / San Juan Ave neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
It used to be that most Americans lived on the farm, or otherwise made their
living from the land, the forests, or the sea. With global trade and an
economy increasingly based on providing services to one another, fewer
people farm, fish or harvest timber now than at any time in American history.
But according to NeighborhoodScout's leading analysis, the
Justin Way / San Juan Ave neighborhood stands apart from most American neighborhood due

of such workers than 99.6% of U.S. neighborhoods.
