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: Diversity
Did you know that the W Shelbourne Ave / Las Vegas Blvd S neighborhood has more
Romanian and Arab ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 2.7% of
this neighborhood's residents have Romanian ancestry and 6.0% have Arab ancestry.
W Shelbourne Ave / Las Vegas Blvd S is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 2.9% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Arabic at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 97.6% 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: 52.6%. This
is a higher percent living alone than we found in 97.9% 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.
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 W Shelbourne Ave / Las Vegas Blvd S neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 97.5% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
Notable & Unique: Occupations

employed as sales and service workers (55.0%) 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

neighborhood still stands out as unique due to the dominance of people
living here who work in such occupations.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, the W Shelbourne Ave / Las Vegas Blvd S 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.
