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 Westward St / Glenmont Dr neighborhood has more
Yugoslav ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 8.7% of
this neighborhood's residents have Yugoslav ancestry.
Westward St / Glenmont Dr is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 85.5% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Spanish at home. This is a higher percentage than 99.0% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
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 Westward St / Glenmont Dr
neighborhood has a greater percentage of residents born in another country
(64.0%) than are found in 99.5% of all U.S. neighborhoods.

46.9% of its working residents employed in such fields, which is a
higher proportion than 98.9% of American neighborhoods.
Furthermore, from major sales accounts to fast-food workers, sales and service employees
are often the backbone of the local economy. In the Westward St / Glenmont Dr
neighborhood, they truly stand out. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis
identifies this neighborhood as having a higher percentage of sales and
service workers than 96.6% of all American neighborhoods.

all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
97.2% of U.S. neighborhoods.

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 99.3% 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.
