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: Migration / Stability
Some neighborhoods have more internal cohesiveness than others. While other
neighborhoods feel like a collection of strangers who just happen to live
near each other. Sometimes this comes down to not only the personalities
of the people in a place, but how long people have been together in that
neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's research has revealed some interesting
things about the rootedness of people in the Exposition Blvd / Response Rd
In the Exposition Blvd / Response Rd neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 98.6% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
Notable & Unique: People
An extraordinary 31.2% of the residents of the
Exposition Blvd / Response Rd 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, one of the most interesting things about the Exposition Blvd / Response Rd
neighborhood is that it has a greater concentration of residents who live
alone than most all neighborhoods in America. With 53.2% of the
households here made up of people living alone, NeighborhoodScout's research
reveals that this is a larger proportion of people living alone than in
98.1% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Exposition Blvd / Response Rd neighborhood has more
Portuguese and Iranian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 3.2% of
this neighborhood's residents have Portuguese ancestry and 1.0% have Iranian ancestry.
Exposition Blvd / Response Rd is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.0% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Persian at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 96.6% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, renter-occupied real estate is dominant in the Exposition Blvd / Response Rd neighborhood. The percentage of rental real estate here, according to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, is 99.2%, which is higher than 99.2% of the neighborhoods in America. If you were to buy and live in the property you bought here, you would be almost alone in doing so.
Furthermore, one of the really unique and interesting things about the look and setting of the Exposition Blvd / Response Rd neighborhood is that it is almost entirely dominated by large apartment buildings, such as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments. 84.5% of the residential real estate here is classified as such. This puts this neighborhood on the map as having a higher proportion of large apartment buildings than 97.9% of all neighborhoods in America.
Also of note, the Exposition Blvd / Response Rd 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 88.2% 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.
