A number of residences were also built between 2000 and the present.

Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

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 W Tropicana Ave / Edmond St neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.

Notable & Unique: Diversity

Did you know that the W Tropicana Ave / Edmond St neighborhood has more Yugoslav and Cuban ancestry people living in it than nearly any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 1.7% of this neighborhood's residents have Yugoslav ancestry and 3.8% have Cuban ancestry.

W Tropicana Ave / Edmond St is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 2.4% of its residents five years old and above primarily speak Japanese at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher than 99.1% of the neighborhoods in America.

Notable & Unique: Real Estate

The W Tropicana Ave / Edmond St 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 93.9% 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.

In addition, one of the really unique and interesting things about the look and setting of the W Tropicana Ave / Edmond St neighborhood is that it is almost entirely dominated by large apartment buildings, such as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments. 77.0% 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 96.9% of all neighborhoods in America.

Furthermore, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the W Tropicana Ave / Edmond St stands out as rather unique in having nearly all of its residential real estate built in one time period, namely between 1970 and 1999, generally considered to be established, but not old housing. What you'll sense when you look around or drive the streets of this neighborhood is that many of the residences look the same because of this similarity of age. In fact, 86.8% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.

Also of note, renter-occupied real estate is dominant in the W Tropicana Ave / Edmond St neighborhood. The percentage of rental real estate here, according to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, is 84.1%, which is higher than 95.4% of the neighborhoods in America. If you were to buy and live in the property you bought here, you would be almost alone in doing so. Despite all of the residential real estate here in the W Tropicana Ave / Edmond St 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 32.0%, which is higher than 95.0% of all U.S. neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Occupations

There are more people living in the W Tropicana Ave / Edmond St neighborhood employed as sales and service workers (56.1%) 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

With a nice mix of college students, safety from crime, and decent walkability, the W Tropicana Ave / Edmond St neighborhood rates highly as a college student friendly place to live, and one that college students and their parents may want to consider. NeighborhoodScout's analysis shows that it rates more highly for a good place for college students to live than 86.2% of the neighborhoods in NV. This often also means that the area has certain amenities and services geared towards college students, from undergraduates to graduate students.


The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income

How wealthy a neighborhood is, from very wealthy, to middle income, to low income is very formative with regard to the personality and character of a neighborhood.

Getting to Work

How you get to work – car, bus, train or other means – and how much of your day it takes to do so is a large quality of life and financial issue. Especially with gasoline prices rising and expected to continue doing so, the length and means of one's commute can be a financial burden.
