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 New Orleans,
the Cleveland Ave / S Johnson St neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.

The Cleveland Ave / S Johnson St neighborhood also has a greater percentage
of children living in poverty (77.9%) than found in

neighborhood still stands out as unique due to the dominance of people
living here who work in such occupations.
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

a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.

In fact, with 36.0% of the residential real estate vacant, the Cleveland Ave / S Johnson St neighborhood claims the distinction of having a higher vacancy rate than 96.4% 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.
