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: People
Whether by choice, divorce, or unplanned pregnancy, single moms may have
the toughest job in the book. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals
that the Greenleaf Ave / Whittier Blvd neighborhood has more single mother
households than 98.1% of the neighborhoods in the U.S.
Often high concentrations of single mother homes can be a strong indicator
of family and social issues such as poverty, high rates of school dropouts,
crime, and other societal problems.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Greenleaf Ave / Whittier Blvd neighborhood has more
Mexican ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 71.7% of
this neighborhood's residents have Mexican ancestry.
Greenleaf Ave / Whittier Blvd is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 64.5% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Spanish at home. This is a higher percentage than 96.5% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
If you like crowded places, then you will probably enjoy the Greenleaf Ave / Whittier Blvd neighborhood. According to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive data analysis, this neighborhood is more densely populated than 95.1% of neighborhoods in the U.S., with 20,578 people per square mile living here.
In addition, renter-occupied real estate is dominant in the Greenleaf Ave / Whittier Blvd neighborhood. The percentage of rental real estate here, according to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, is 90.3%, which is higher than 97.2% 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, the Greenleaf Ave / Whittier Blvd 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 83.7% 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.
