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
One of the most interesting things about the Makaloa St / Keeaumoku St
neighborhood is that it has a greater concentration of residents who live
alone than most all neighborhoods in America. With 53.2% of the
households here made up of people living alone, NeighborhoodScout's research
reveals that this is a larger proportion of people living alone than in
98.1% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
The Makaloa St / Keeaumoku St neighborhood is very densely populated compared to most U.S. neighborhoods. In fact, with 34,496 persons per square mile in the neighborhood, it is more packed with people than 97.6% of the nation's neighborhoods.
In addition, one of the really unique and interesting things about the look and setting of the Makaloa St / Keeaumoku St neighborhood is that it is almost entirely dominated by large apartment buildings, such as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments. 93.4% 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 99.0% of all neighborhoods in America.
Furthermore, the Makaloa St / Keeaumoku 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 93.8% 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: Car Ownership
We Americans love our cars. Not only are they a necessity for most Americans
due to the shape of our neighborhoods and the distances between where we
live, work, shop, and go to school, but we also fancy them. As a result,
most households in America have one, two, or three cars. But NeighborhoodScout's
exclusive analysis shows that the Makaloa St / Keeaumoku St neighborhood has
a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.
33.9% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at
all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
97.3% of U.S. neighborhoods.

With 1.3% of employed workers living in the
Makaloa St / Keeaumoku St neighborhood active in the military, this neighborhood has
the distinction of having a higher proportion of people in the military
than 95.6% of American neighborhoods. This is a major
shaper of the neighborhood's culture and character.
