Many things matter about a neighborhood, but the first thing most people notice
is the way a neighborhood looks and its particular character. For example, one
might notice whether the buildings all date from a certain time period or whether
shop signs are in multiple languages. This particular neighborhood in Kenner,
the Joe Yenni Blvd / Woodlake Blvd neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.

Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Joe Yenni Blvd / Woodlake Blvd neighborhood has more
Danish and French ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 6.5% of
this neighborhood's residents have Danish ancestry and 14.3% have French ancestry.
Joe Yenni Blvd / Woodlake Blvd is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 2.0% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Urdu, which is the national language of Pakistan, at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 98.3% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the Joe Yenni Blvd / Woodlake Blvd 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, 93.9% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
Furthermore, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Joe Yenni Blvd / Woodlake Blvd neighborhood, NeighborhoodScout has discovered that much of it is vacant. In resort or second-home vacation areas, this naturally occurs because homes and apartments are seasonally occupied, and empty for a portion of the year. In non-vacation or resort areas, however, this can be an indicator of property abandonment or a weak real estate market. The vacancy rate here is 32.0%, which is higher than 95.0% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
