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: Modes of Transportation
Our research revealed that more commuters here take the bus to work
(40.8% ride the bus) than 99.7% of all American

hopping the bus to work, this might be a good neighborhood for you to

S Indiana Ave / E 60th St neighborhood about it; they already know. 34.2%
of this neighborhood's households are run by single mothers, which is a
higher concentration than NeighborhoodScout found in 99.7%
of American neighborhoods. Further NeighborhoodScout research showed strong
statistical correlations among high rates of children living in single
parent households, and neighborhood crime, particularly violent crime,
neighborhood poverty, and, importantly, the percentage of low weight births

the depth of the problem manifested here.

not have a 4-year college degree, which is a lower rate of college graduated
adults than found in 95.9% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Car Ownership
We Americans love our cars. Not only are they a necessity for most Americans
due to the shape of our neighborhoods and the distances between where we
live, work, shop, and go to school, but we also fancy them. As a result,
most households in America have one, two, or three cars. But NeighborhoodScout's
exclusive analysis shows that the S Indiana Ave / E 60th St neighborhood has
a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.
44.0% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at
all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
98.2% of U.S. neighborhoods.

employed as sales and service workers (55.5%) than almost any neighborhood

neighborhood still stands out as unique due to the dominance of people
living here who work in such occupations.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability

time, creating a sense of cohesiveness? NeighborhoodScout's analysis
reveals that this neighborhood stands out among American neighborhoods
for the uniqueness of the mobility of its residents.

the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
