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: Real Estate
Do you like a coastal setting? If so, this neighborhood may be to your liking.
The Palos Verdes Estates City Center neighborhood is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet.
Often such coastal places have amenities and recreational activities on the waterfront
that are attractive to residents and visitors alike.
In addition to being coastal, Palos Verdes Estates City Center is a very nautical neighborhood,
meaning that it is somewhat historic, walkable, densely populated and
on the water. This gives the neighborhood a very nautical feel,
with some seaside and shipping feel, which some may really enjoy the sights
and sounds of.
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 Palos Verdes Estates City Center
neighborhood. This neighborhood is uniquely immersed with more "urban
sophisticates" than 99.1% 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 Palos Verdes Estates City Center
In addition to being an excellent choice for urban sophisticates, this
neighborhood is also a very good choice for families with school-aged children, highly educated executives and active retirees.
In addition, wealth makes most things in life easier, and a few things harder.
If you are wealthy and enjoy keeping up with the Jones', this neighborhood
will interest you. In fact, according to NeighborhoodScout's research,
the Palos Verdes Estates City Center neighborhood is wealthier than 99.0%
of the neighborhoods in the United States. Residents here are truly in
a unique situation even when compared to other Americans, based on the
sheer amount of wealth concentrated here. Even in times of economic
downturn, residents of this neighborhood, as a group, suffered less
and recovered more quickly. This is indeed a stand-out characteristic
of this neighborhood.
Also, astoundingly, NeighborhoodScout's research reveals that this single
neighborhood has a higher concentration of married couples living here
than 97.5% of all U.S. neighborhoods. Whether they have
school-aged children or not, married couples are the rule in the Palos Verdes Estates
City Center neighborhood. If you are a married couple, you may find many
people here with a similar lifestyle, and perhaps common interests. But if
you are single, you might not find many other singles here.
Finally, do you like to read, write, and learn? Are you curious about the world? If
so, this neighborhood may be a good fit for you. NeighborhoodScout's research
revealed that a full 71.8% of the adults living in the
Palos Verdes Estates City Center neighborhood have earned at least a bachelor's
degree. This is a higher rate than NeighborhoodScout found in 97.0%
of U.S. neighborhoods. In this way, this neighborhood truly stands out.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Palos Verdes Estates City Center neighborhood has more
Armenian and Czechoslovakian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 2.3% of
this neighborhood's residents have Armenian ancestry and 1.0% have Czechoslovakian ancestry.
Palos Verdes Estates City Center is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 3.9% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Korean at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 98.2% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
A unique way of commuting is simply not to. And in the Palos Verdes Estates City Center
neighborhood, analysis shows that 14.1% 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
97.9% 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.
