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: People
Think about the people you know personally. How many of them would
purchase box seats to opening night at the symphony? How many of them
regularly attend gallery openings, or are the first to reserve tickets
to opening night at the ballet? If they're like most of us, they don't
do any of these things. But if you're among an exclusive crowd of wealthy
and refined patrons of the arts, then you'll feel right at home in
the Northbrook Village Center neighborhood: a neighborhood in which more
"urban sophisticates" live than 99.0% of neighborhoods
across the U.S. Here, your neighbors are defined as having urbane
tastes in literature, music, live theatre and the arts. They are wealthy,
educated, travel in style, and live a big city lifestyle whether or
not they live in or near a big city.
In addition to being an excellent choice for urban sophisticates, this
neighborhood is also a very good choice for highly educated executives and families with school-aged children.
In addition, do you like to read, write, and learn? Are you curious about the world? If
so, this neighborhood may be a good fit for you. NeighborhoodScout's research
revealed that a full 77.8% of the adults living in the
Northbrook Village Center neighborhood have earned at least a bachelor's
degree. This is a higher rate than NeighborhoodScout found in 98.5%
of U.S. neighborhoods. In this way, this neighborhood truly stands out.

a unique situation even when compared to other Americans, based on the
sheer amount of wealth concentrated here. Even in times of economic
downturn, residents of this neighborhood, as a group, suffered less
and recovered more quickly. This is indeed a stand-out characteristic
of this neighborhood.
Finally, priests and therapists would like to think they know the secrets to a

percentage than is found in 96.3% of the neighborhoods
