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
Whether walking, biking, riding, or driving, the length of one's commute
is an important factor for one's quality of life. The Pomona Blvd / State St
neighborhood stands out for its commute length, according to NeighborhoodScout's
Residents of the Pomona Blvd / State St neighborhood have the pleasure
of having one of the shortest commutes to work of any neighborhood in
America. 100.0% of the residents have a commute time from
home to work (one way) of less than fifteen minutes. This is a higher
proportion of residents enjoying a short trip to work than NeighborhoodScout
found in 99.9% of U.S. neighborhoods. Less time commuting
means more time for other things in life.
Notable & Unique: People
Of note is NeighborhoodScout's research finding that the
Pomona Blvd / State St neighborhood has some of the lowest rates of children
living in poverty of any neighborhood in the United States. In a nation
where approximately 1 in 4 children are living in poverty, the
Pomona Blvd / State St community truly stands out from the rest in this regard.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
In the Pomona Blvd / State St neighborhood, walking to work is a real
option for many. In fact, NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research reveals
walking to and from work is the chosen way to commute for 100.0%
of residents here. This is a higher proportion of walking commuters than
we found in 99.9% of American neighborhoods. Get ready
to put on your walking shoes if you move here!
Also, in the Pomona Blvd / State St neighborhood, many people's commute means
walking from the bedroom to the home office. NeighborhoodScout's analysis
found that 22.1% of residents worked from home. This may not
seem like a large number, but Scout's research shows that this is a higher
percentage of people working from home than 99.6% of the
neighborhoods in America. Often people who work from home are engaged in
the creative or technological economy, such as is found in areas around Boston,
and in Silicon Valley. Other times, people may be engaged in other businesses
like trading stocks from home, or running a small beauty salon.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
One of the notable things about Pomona Blvd / State St is that it is one of the quietest neighborhoods in America, according to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis and quantitative rating of quietness. When you are here, you will find it to be very quiet. If quiet and peaceful are your cup of tea, you may have found a great place for you.
In addition, with a real estate vacancy rate of only 0.0%, the Pomona Blvd / State St neighborhood has a lower vacancy rate than 100.0% of U.S. neighborhoods, a very elite group. Such a low vacancy rate may indicate very strong real estate demand in the neighborhood combined with some impediments to increasing supply, such as zoning or existing density of development, among other potential reasons.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Pomona Blvd / State St neighborhood has more
Armenian and Asian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 0.8% of
this neighborhood's residents have Armenian ancestry and 20.0% have Asian ancestry.
Pomona Blvd / State St is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 10.7% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Tagalog, which is the first language of the Philippine region, at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.5% of the 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.
In the Pomona Blvd / State St neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 95.3% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
