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 Sirius Ave / Arville St neighborhood
employed as sales and service workers (43.8%) 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.

Cuban and Mexican ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 3.1% of
this neighborhood's residents have Cuban ancestry and 61.2% have Mexican ancestry.
Sirius Ave / Arville St is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 72.3% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Spanish at home. This is a higher percentage than 97.7% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: People

the toughest job in the book. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals

households than 97.0% of the neighborhoods in the U.S.

of family and social issues such as poverty, high rates of school dropouts,
crime, and other societal problems.
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 Sirius Ave / Arville St neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 95.3% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.

neighborhood has a greater percentage of residents born in another country
(47.2%) than are found in 97.0% of all U.S. neighborhoods.

hopping the bus to work, this might be a good neighborhood for you to
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
