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 Fair Oaks Ave / Pineland Dr neighborhood has more
African and Sub-Saharan African ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 9.0% of
this neighborhood's residents have African ancestry and 11.1% have Sub-Saharan African ancestry.
Fair Oaks Ave / Pineland Dr is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 5.2% 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 99.2% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
There are more people living in the Fair Oaks Ave / Pineland Dr neighborhood
employed as sales and service workers (50.5%) 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: 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.
What is interesting to note, is that the Fair Oaks Ave / Pineland Dr
neighborhood has a greater percentage of residents born in another country
(51.6%) than are found in 98.0% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, the Fair Oaks Ave / Pineland Dr 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 98.3% 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, the real estate in the Fair Oaks Ave / Pineland Dr neighborhood really stands out in the way it looks for a unique reason: this neighborhood has a higher proportion of apartment complexes or high-rise apartments than nearly every neighborhood in the country. Most neighborhoods are a mixture of real estate and housing types, but here it is almost entirely dominated by big apartment buildings and complexes. In fact, 90.4% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 98.6% of American neighborhoods.
Also of note, renter-occupied real estate is dominant in the Fair Oaks Ave / Pineland Dr neighborhood. The percentage of rental real estate here, according to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, is 94.4%, which is higher than 98.1% 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.
Finally, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the Fair Oaks Ave / Pineland Dr 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, 91.1% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
