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.

this neighborhood's residents have Mexican ancestry.
E Santa Ana Blvd / Poinsettia St is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 87.5% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Spanish at home. This is a higher percentage than 99.2% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability

with different perspectives and life experiences? Or do you instead prefer
to be in a neighborhood where most residents have lived there for a long
time, creating a sense of cohesiveness? NeighborhoodScout's analysis
reveals that this neighborhood stands out among American neighborhoods

Notable & Unique: Occupations
There are more people living in the E Santa Ana Blvd / Poinsettia St neighborhood
employed as sales and service workers (56.4%) than almost any neighborhood

higher concentration than NeighborhoodScout found in 95.0%
