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 Las Vegas,
the E Cheyenne Ave / N Walnut Rd neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Significantly, 0.7% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Yiddish at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.4% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: People
The E Cheyenne Ave / N Walnut Rd neighborhood is unique for having just
0.3% of adults here having earned a bachelor's degree.
This is a lower rate of college graduates than NeighborhoodScout found
in 99.0% of America's neighborhoods.
In addition, single parenting is hard. But you don't have to tell the
E Cheyenne Ave / N Walnut Rd neighborhood about it; they already know. 23.9%
of this neighborhood's households are run by single mothers, which is a
higher concentration than NeighborhoodScout found in 98.2%
of American neighborhoods. Further NeighborhoodScout research showed strong
statistical correlations among high rates of children living in single
parent households, and neighborhood crime, particularly violent crime,
neighborhood poverty, and, importantly, the percentage of low weight births
and rates of infant mortality.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
The freedom of moving to new places versus the comfort of home. How much
and how often people move not only can create diverse and worldly neighborhoods,
but simultaneously it can produce a loss of intimacy with one's surroundings
and a lack of connectedness to one's neighbors. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive
research has identified this neighborhood as unique with regard to the
transience of its populace.
In the E Cheyenne Ave / N Walnut Rd neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 98.6% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
There are more people living in the E Cheyenne Ave / N Walnut Rd neighborhood
employed as sales and service workers (53.6%) than almost any neighborhood
in the country. From fast-food service workers to major sales accounts,
sales and service workers make up the largest proportion of our national
employment picture. But despite that size and importance nationally, this
neighborhood still stands out as unique due to the dominance of people
living here who work in such occupations.
Notable & Unique: Length of Commute
Whether walking, biking, riding, or driving, the length of one's commute
is an important factor for one's quality of life. The E Cheyenne Ave / N Walnut Rd
neighborhood stands out for its commute length, according to NeighborhoodScout's
Long commutes can be brutal. They take time, money, and energy, leaving less
of you for yourself and your family. The residents of the
E Cheyenne Ave / N Walnut Rd neighborhood unfortunately have the distinction of having,
on average, a longer commute than most any neighborhood in America.
9.4% of commuters here travel more than one hour just one-way
to work. That is more than two hours per day. This percentage with two-hour +
round-trip commutes is higher than NeighborhoodScout found in 96.8%
of all neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, despite all of the residential real estate here in the E Cheyenne Ave / N Walnut Rd 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 32.8%, which is higher than 95.3% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Furthermore, the E Cheyenne Ave / N Walnut Rd 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 81.4% 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.
