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
Did you know that the Likini St / Ala Napunani St neighborhood has more
Asian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 63.1% of
this neighborhood's residents have Asian ancestry.
Likini St / Ala Napunani St is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 13.8% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Korean at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.8% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
What you'll find when you visit or move to this neighborhood is one of the most crowded neighborhoods in all of America. With an incredible 69,290 people per square mile, it is more densely populated than 99.2% of America's neighborhoods.
In addition, one of the really unique and interesting things about the look and setting of the Likini St / Ala Napunani St neighborhood is that it is almost entirely dominated by large apartment buildings, such as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments. 96.1% 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 99.4% of all neighborhoods in America.
Furthermore, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the Likini St / Ala Napunani St stands out as rather unique in having nearly all of its residential real estate built in one time period, namely between 1970 and 1999, generally considered to be established, but not old housing. What you'll sense when you look around or drive the streets of this neighborhood is that many of the residences look the same because of this similarity of age. In fact, 86.4% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
Also of note, the Likini St / Ala Napunani St 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 83.9% 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.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
With 3.4% of employed workers living in the
Likini St / Ala Napunani St neighborhood active in the military, this neighborhood has
the distinction of having a higher proportion of people in the military
than 98.4% of American neighborhoods. This is a major
shaper of the neighborhood's culture and character.
