Most of the residential real estate is renter occupied. Many of the residences in the Dukes Ln / Kalakaua Ave neighborhood are established but not old, having been built between 1970 and 1999.

This is higher than the rate of vacancies in 98.0% of all U.S. neighborhoods. In addition, most vacant housing here is vacant year round.

If you live here, you may find that a number of buildings in your neighborhood are actually empty.

Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

The way a neighborhood looks and feels when you walk or drive around it, from its setting, its buildings, and its flavor, can make all the difference. This neighborhood has some really cool things about the way it looks and feels as revealed by NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research. This might include anything from the housing stock to the types of households living here to how people get around.

Notable & Unique: People

The first thing that you'll notice if you moved to this neighborhood is that an astounding 6.5% of the households are same sex couples. According to NeighborhoodScout's analysis, this is a higher proportion of same sex households than in 99.8% of the neighborhoods in America.

In addition, an extraordinary 40.8% of the residents of the Dukes Ln / Kalakaua Ave 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.

Notable & Unique: Real Estate

The Dukes Ln / Kalakaua Ave 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 97.3% 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.

In addition, one of the really unique and interesting things about the look and setting of the Dukes Ln / Kalakaua Ave neighborhood is that it is almost entirely dominated by large apartment buildings, such as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments. 97.1% 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 99.6% of all neighborhoods in America.

Furthermore, the Dukes Ln / Kalakaua Ave neighborhood is very densely populated compared to most U.S. neighborhoods. In fact, with 44,568 persons per square mile in the neighborhood, it is more packed with people than 98.3% of the nation's neighborhoods.

Also of note, vacant homes and apartments are a significant characteristic of this neighborhood. In fact, with 45.1% of the residential real estate vacant, the Dukes Ln / Kalakaua Ave neighborhood claims the distinction of having a higher vacancy rate than 98.0% 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.

Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation

In the Dukes Ln / Kalakaua Ave neighborhood, walking to work is a real option for many. In fact, NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research reveals walking to and from work is the chosen way to commute for 38.8% of residents here. This is a higher proportion of walking commuters than we found in 99.2% of American neighborhoods. Get ready to put on your walking shoes if you move here!

Also, our research revealed that more commuters here take the bus to work (18.8% ride the bus) than 96.6% of all American neighborhoods. If you like the idea of leaving your car and home and hopping the bus to work, this might be a good neighborhood for you to consider.

Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability

Do you like to be surrounded by people from all over the country or world, 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 for the uniqueness of the mobility of its residents. In the Dukes Ln / Kalakaua Ave neighborhood, a greater proportion of the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is found in 99.0% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood, more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.

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 Dukes Ln / Kalakaua Ave neighborhood, they truly stand out. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis identifies this neighborhood as having a higher percentage of sales and service workers than 98.5% of all American neighborhoods.

Furthermore, with 1.2% of employed workers living in the Dukes Ln / Kalakaua Ave neighborhood active in the military, this neighborhood has the distinction of having a higher proportion of people in the military than 95.4% of American neighborhoods. This is a major shaper of the neighborhood's culture and character.

Notable & Unique: Diversity

Did you know that the Dukes Ln / Kalakaua Ave neighborhood has more Asian ancestry people living in it than nearly any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 34.5% of this neighborhood's residents have Asian ancestry.

Dukes Ln / Kalakaua Ave is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 11.6% of its residents five years old and above primarily speak Japanese at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher than 100.0% of the neighborhoods in America.

Notable & Unique: Car Ownership

Most American households own a car or other vehicle. Many own two cars or perhaps three. In the United States, it is useful to have an automobile not only for commuting, but also for shopping and getting to other services one needs. But NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed that households in the Dukes Ln / Kalakaua Ave neighborhood have a highly unusual car ownership. 35.7% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in 97.5% of U.S. neighborhoods.


The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income

There are two complementary measures for understanding the income of a neighborhood's residents: the average and the extremes. While a neighborhood may be relatively wealthy overall, it is equally important to understand the rate of people - particularly children - who are living at or below the federal poverty line, which is extremely low income. Some neighborhoods with a lower average income may actually have a lower childhood poverty rate than another with a higher average income, and this helps us understand the conditions and character of a neighborhood.

The neighbors in the Dukes Ln / Kalakaua Ave neighborhood in Honolulu are lower-middle income, making it a below average income neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's research shows that this neighborhood has an income lower than 76.1% of U.S. neighborhoods. With 20.8% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 58.0% of U.S. neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

What we choose to do for a living reflects who we are. Each neighborhood has a different mix of occupations represented, and together these tell you about the neighborhood and help you understand if this neighborhood may fit your lifestyle.

In the Dukes Ln / Kalakaua Ave neighborhood, 48.7% of the working population is employed in sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is executive, management, and professional occupations, with 29.8% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations (16.0%), and 3.9% in manufacturing and laborer occupations.

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.

In the Dukes Ln / Kalakaua Ave neighborhood in Honolulu, HI, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Asian (34.5%). There are also a number of people of German ancestry (8.4%), and residents who report Irish roots (6.0%), and some of the residents are also of Italian ancestry (4.3%), along with some Mexican ancestry residents (4.2%), among others. In addition, 38.3% of the residents of this neighborhood were born in another country.

The Neighbors: Languages

The languages spoken by people in this neighborhood are diverse. These are tabulated as the languages people preferentially speak when they are at home with their families. The most common language spoken in the Dukes Ln / Kalakaua Ave neighborhood is English, spoken by 68.9% of households. Other important languages spoken here include Japanese, Chinese, Vietnamese and Korean.

Getting to Work

How you get to work – car, bus, train or other means – and how much of your day it takes to do so is a large quality of life and financial issue. Especially with gasoline prices rising and expected to continue doing so, the length and means of one's commute can be a financial burden. Some neighborhoods are physically located so that many residents have to drive in their own car, others are set up so many walk to work, or can take a train, bus, or bike. The greatest number of commuters in Dukes Ln / Kalakaua Ave neighborhood spend under 15 minutes commuting one-way to work (34.8% of working residents), one of the shortest commutes across America.

Here most residents (38.8%) hop out the door and walk to work to get to work. In addition, quite a number also drive alone in a private automobile to get to work (31.1%) and 18.8% of residents also ride the bus for their daily commute. This is a special neighborhood for the number of people who walk to work. Combining exercise, low cost, and reduced pollution, plus the chance to see your neighbors, walking to work is fairly uncommon in America but likely to increase as people try to reduce their dependence on automobiles, and this neighborhood offers that opportunity today.
