Lamberts Point / Old Dominion U is an urban neighborhood (based on population density) located in Norfolk, Virginia.

Lamberts Point / Old Dominion U real estate is primarily made up of medium sized (three or four bedroom) to small (studio to two bedroom) single-family homes and small apartment buildings. Most of the residential real estate is renter occupied. Many of the residences in the Lamberts Point / Old Dominion U neighborhood are established but not old, having been built between 1970 and 1999. A number of residences were also built between 2000 and the present.

Lamberts Point / Old Dominion U has a 14.5% vacancy rate, which is well above average compared to other U.S. neighborhoods (higher than 73.3% of American neighborhoods). Most vacant housing here is vacant year round.

Either way, if you live here, you may find many of the homes or apartments are empty.

Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

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: Migration / Stability

The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income

There are two complementary measures for understanding the income of a neighborhood's residents: the average and the extremes. While a neighborhood may be relatively wealthy overall, it is equally important to understand the rate of people - particularly children - who are living at or below the federal poverty line, which is extremely low income. Some neighborhoods with a lower average income may actually have a lower childhood poverty rate than another with a higher average income, and this helps us understand the conditions and character of a neighborhood.

The neighbors in the Lamberts Point / Old Dominion U neighborhood in Norfolk are low income, making it among the lowest income neighborhoods in America. NeighborhoodScout's research shows that this neighborhood has an income lower than 93.3% of U.S. neighborhoods. With 30.0% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 72.3% of U.S. neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

A neighborhood is far different if it is dominated by enlisted military personnel rather than people who earn their living by farming. It is also different if most of the neighbors are clerical support or managers. What is wonderful is the sheer diversity of neighborhoods, allowing you to find the type that fits your lifestyle and aspirations.

In the Lamberts Point / Old Dominion U neighborhood, 47.0% of the working population is employed in sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is executive, management, and professional occupations, with 21.2% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in manufacturing and laborer occupations (16.6%), and 15.2% in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations.

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Culture is the shared learned behavior of peoples. Undeniably, different ethnicities and ancestries have different cultural traditions, and as a result, neighborhoods with concentrations of residents of one or another ethnicities or ancestries will express those cultures. It is what makes the North End in Boston so fun to visit for the Italian restaurants, bakeries, culture, and charm, and similarly, why people enjoy visiting Chinatown in San Francisco.

In the Lamberts Point / Old Dominion U neighborhood in Norfolk, VA, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Sub-Saharan African (10.8%). There are also a number of people of Irish ancestry (7.7%), and residents who report German roots (7.1%), and some of the residents are also of Italian ancestry (5.3%), along with some Asian ancestry residents (3.7%), among others.

The Neighbors: Languages

The languages spoken by people in this neighborhood are diverse. These are tabulated as the languages people preferentially speak when they are at home with their families. The most common language spoken in the Lamberts Point / Old Dominion U neighborhood is English, spoken by 88.0% of households. Other important languages spoken here include Spanish, African languages and Arabic.

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. Some neighborhoods are physically located so that many residents have to drive in their own car, others are set up so many walk to work, or can take a train, bus, or bike. The greatest number of commuters in Lamberts Point / Old Dominion U neighborhood spend under 15 minutes commuting one-way to work (42.4% of working residents), one of the shortest commutes across America.

Here most residents (67.9%) drive alone in a private automobile to get to work. In addition, quite a number also hop out the door and walk to work to get to work (16.8%) and 10.2% of residents also carpool with coworkers, friends, or neighbors for their daily commute. In a neighborhood like this, as in most of the nation, many residents find owning a car useful for getting to work.
