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: Modes of Transportation
Would you like to be able to ride your bike to work? If you are attracted
to the idea of getting a little exercise of the two-wheeled type while
reducing your carbon footprint, bicycling to work might be the answer.
But which neighborhood you live in can make this either impossible, or
alternatively, a great and realistic option. NeighborhoodScout's analysis
revealed that the Toulouse St / City Park Ave neighborhood is a fantastic
option for bicycle commuters, as 6.4% of commuters here do ride
their bikes to and from work on a daily basis. This is a higher amount
than we found in 98.4% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Toulouse St / City Park Ave neighborhood has more
Cuban and French ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 4.3% of
this neighborhood's residents have Cuban ancestry and 10.9% have French ancestry.
Toulouse St / City Park Ave is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 4.4% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak French at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.1% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: People
The types of households in a neighborhood can tell a lot about the character
and lifestyle of those living here. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis
reveals that this neighborhood, above nearly every neighborhood in America,
has a greater percentage of its residents living alone: 50.1%. This
is a higher percent living alone than we found in 97.0% of
all U.S. neighborhoods. Often residents who live alone are new arrivals
to an area who are single, and often senior citizens who have lost a spouse.
In addition, the Toulouse St / City Park Ave neighborhood stands out within Louisiana
for its college student friendly environment. NeighborhoodScout's analysis
reveals that this neighborhood is home to a number of college students,
is relatively walkable, and above average in safety. In combination, this
makes it stand out for a good place for college students to consider.
Because a number of college students live here, this neighborhood may
be close to a college campus and offer certain amenities nearby geared
towards the student body. While it's not an environment for everyone,
ambitious scholars can enjoy seasonal excitement between semesters and
school breaks, and parents can rest easy knowing that the area has an
above average safety rating. For each of these reasons, the
neighborhood is rated among the top 9%
of college-friendly places to live in LA.
In addition to being an excellent choice for college students, this
neighborhood is also a very good choice for young, single professionals.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, three-deckers, duplexes, old Victorian homes cut up into apartments. Independent stores on the corner selling pizza. These are some of the hallmarks of neighborhoods with lots of small 2, 3, and 4 unit apartment buildings. The Toulouse St / City Park Ave neighborhood really stands out in this regard, however, as it is dominated by such small apartment buildings more than nearly any other neighborhood in America. This is a stunning visual and lifestyle example of this type of neighborhood. In fact, 36.4% of the real estate here are small 2, 3, or 4 unit apartment buildings, which is a higher proportion than found in 95.6% of America's neighborhoods.
