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
Significantly, 3.9% 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 97.1% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: People
There is an especially high percentage of incarcerated people (2.7%)
living in the Bijou / Bijou Park neighborhood.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
Would you like to be able to ride your bike to work? If you are attracted
to the idea of getting a little exercise of the two-wheeled type while
reducing your carbon footprint, bicycling to work might be the answer.
But which neighborhood you live in can make this either impossible, or
alternatively, a great and realistic option. NeighborhoodScout's analysis
revealed that the Bijou / Bijou Park neighborhood is a fantastic
option for bicycle commuters, as 4.5% of commuters here do ride
their bikes to and from work on a daily basis. This is a higher amount
than we found in 96.9% of the neighborhoods in America.
Also, in the Bijou / Bijou Park neighborhood, carpooling is still a popular

option for many. In fact, NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research reveals

to put on your walking shoes if you move here!
Notable & Unique: Occupations
From major sales accounts to fast-food workers, sales and service employees
are often the backbone of the local economy. In the Bijou / Bijou Park
neighborhood, they truly stand out. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis
identifies this neighborhood as having a higher percentage of sales and
service workers than 96.8% of all American neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Length of Commute
Regardless of the means by which residents commute, this neighborhood has
a length of commute that is notable.
Residents of the Bijou / Bijou Park neighborhood have the pleasure
of having one of the shortest commutes to work of any neighborhood in
America. 61.4% 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 95.8% of U.S. neighborhoods. Less time commuting
means more time for other things in life.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, vacant homes and apartments are a significant characteristic of this neighborhood. In fact, with 42.9% of the residential real estate vacant, the Bijou / Bijou Park neighborhood claims the distinction of having a higher vacancy rate than 97.7% of the neighborhoods in America. This can either be because much of the property is seasonally occupied, like in many vacation areas, or that much of the real estate is more permanently abandoned.
