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: Occupations
There are more people living in the Industrial Rd / W Sahara Ave neighborhood
employed as sales and service workers (39.1%) 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: People
One of the most interesting things about the Industrial Rd / W Sahara Ave
neighborhood is that it has a greater concentration of residents who live
alone than most all neighborhoods in America. With 57.8% 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
99.0% of the neighborhoods in America.
In addition, the Industrial Rd / W Sahara Ave neighborhood stands out for having an
average per capita income lower than 96.6% of the neighborhoods
in the United States.
Also of note, 62.5% of the children in this area
live in poverty; an extraordinarily high percentage compared to other
neighborhoods in the nation. In a nation where approximately one in
four children grows up in poverty, this neighborhood stands out for
the depth of the problem manifested here.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Industrial Rd / W Sahara Ave neighborhood has more
Cuban ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 6.6% of
this neighborhood's residents have Cuban ancestry.
Industrial Rd / W Sahara Ave is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 7.0% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Tagalog, which is the first language of the Philippine region, at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 98.9% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
If your dream is to be able to ride your bike to work each day, look no
further than this unique neighborhood. With 7.7% of residents in
the Industrial Rd / W Sahara Ave neighborhood commuting on a bicycle to and
from work daily, this neighborhood has more bicycle commuters than
98.9% of all neighborhoods in the U.S., according to
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis.
Also, more people ride the bus in this neighborhood each day to get to work
than 98.3% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Finally, more people in Industrial Rd / W Sahara Ave choose to walk to work each day
(13.3%) than almost any neighborhood in America. If you are
attracted to the idea of being able to walk to work, this neighborhood
could be a good choice.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
Do you like to be surrounded by people from all over the country or world,
with different perspectives and life experiences? Or do you instead prefer
to be in a neighborhood where most residents have lived there for a long
time, creating a sense of cohesiveness? NeighborhoodScout's analysis
reveals that this neighborhood stands out among American neighborhoods
for the uniqueness of the mobility of its residents.
In the Industrial Rd / W Sahara Ave neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 97.2% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
What is also interesting to note, is that the Industrial Rd / W Sahara Ave
neighborhood has a greater percentage of residents born in another country
(48.7%) than are found in 97.4% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Car Ownership
Most American households own a car or other vehicle. Many own two cars
or perhaps three. In the United States, it is useful to have an automobile
not only for commuting, but also for shopping and getting to other services
one needs. But NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed that households in
the Industrial Rd / W Sahara Ave neighborhood have a highly unusual car ownership.
30.5% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at
all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
96.8% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, the Industrial Rd / W Sahara Ave 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 92.6% 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.
Furthermore, one of the really unique and interesting things about the look and setting of the Industrial Rd / W Sahara Ave neighborhood is that it is almost entirely dominated by large apartment buildings, such as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments. 85.7% 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 98.0% of all neighborhoods in America.
Also of note, 92.6% of the real estate in the Industrial Rd / W Sahara Ave neighborhood is occupied by renters, which is nearly the highest rate of renter occupancy of any neighborhood in America. Despite all of the residential real estate here in the Industrial Rd / W Sahara Ave 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 35.6%, which is higher than 96.3% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
