Alviso / Cogswell Polytechnical College is a rural neighborhood (based on population density) located in San Jose, California. This is a coastal neighborhood (i.e., is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet).

Alviso / Cogswell Polytechnical College real estate is primarily made up of small (studio to two bedroom) to medium sized (three or four bedroom) single-family homes and apartment complexes/high-rise apartments. Most of the residential real estate is occupied by a mixture of owners and renters. Many of the residences in the Alviso / Cogswell Polytechnical College neighborhood are newer, built in 2000 or more recently. A number of residences were also built between 1940 and 1969.

Alviso / Cogswell Polytechnical College has a 14.0% vacancy rate, which is well above average compared to other U.S. neighborhoods (higher than 71.2% of American neighborhoods). Most vacant housing here is vacant year round. This could either signal that there is a weak demand for real estate in the neighborhood or that large amount of new housing has been built and not yet occupied. Either way, if you live here, you may find many of the homes or apartments are empty.

Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

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 Alviso / Cogswell Polytechnical College neighborhood is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet.

In addition to being coastal, Alviso / Cogswell Polytechnical College 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: Modes of Transportation

While most Americans do drive to work alone each day, the Alviso / Cogswell Polytechnical College neighborhood stands out by having 94.8% of commuters doing so, which is a higher proportion of people driving alone to work than NeighborhoodScout found in 97.7% of all American neighborhoods.

The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income

How wealthy a neighborhood is, from very wealthy, to middle income, to low income is very formative with regard to the personality and character of a neighborhood. Equally important is the rate of people, particularly children, who live below the federal poverty line. In some wealthy gated communities, the areas immediately surrounding can have high rates of childhood poverty, which indicates other social issues.

The Neighbors: Occupations

The old saying "you are what you eat" is true. But it is also true that you are what you do for a living. The types of occupations your neighbors have shape their character, and together as a group, their collective occupations shape the culture of a place.

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Culture is shared learned behavior. We learn it from our parents, their parents, our houses of worship, and much of our culture – our learned behavior – comes from our ancestors. That is why ancestry and ethnicity can be so interesting and important to understand: places with concentrations of people of one or more ancestries often express those shared learned behaviors and this gives each neighborhood its own culture. Even different neighborhoods in the same city can have drastically different cultures.

Getting to Work

Even if your neighborhood is walkable, you may still have to drive to your place of work. Some neighborhoods are located where many can get to work in just a few minutes, while others are located such that most residents have a long and arduous commute.
