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: Diversity
Did you know that the Sunset Blvd / Park Dr neighborhood has more
British and Czechoslovakian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 11.1% of
this neighborhood's residents have British ancestry and 0.9% have Czechoslovakian ancestry.
Sunset Blvd / Park Dr is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 4.2% of its residents five years old and above primarily

than 98.5% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
With 3.7% of employed workers living in the
Sunset Blvd / Park Dr neighborhood active in the military, this neighborhood has
the distinction of having a higher proportion of people in the military
than 98.5% of American neighborhoods. This is a major
shaper of the neighborhood's culture and character.
Notable & Unique: People
An extraordinary 14.0% of the residents of the
Sunset Blvd / Park Dr neighborhood are currently enrolled in college. This is
such a large part of life in this neighborhood that the neighborhood changes
a great deal with the change of semesters and is far quieter during
the summer when many students are away.
In addition, with a nice mix of college students, safety from crime, and decent
walkability, the Sunset Blvd / Park Dr neighborhood rates highly
as a college student friendly place to live, and one that college

Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, 84.3% of the real estate in the Sunset Blvd / Park Dr neighborhood is occupied by renters, which is nearly the highest rate of renter occupancy of any neighborhood in America.
Furthermore, the real estate in the Sunset Blvd / Park Dr 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, 68.1% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 95.4% of American neighborhoods.
Also of note, the Sunset Blvd / Park Dr 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 80.8% 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.
