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 E Iowa Ave / S Lincoln St neighborhood has more
Belgian and Danish ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 2.2% of
this neighborhood's residents have Belgian ancestry and 2.7% have Danish ancestry.
E Iowa Ave / S Lincoln St is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 0.9% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Native American languages at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 98.3% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
Would you like to be able to ride your bike to work? If you are attracted
to the idea of getting a little exercise of the two-wheeled type while
reducing your carbon footprint, bicycling to work might be the answer.
But which neighborhood you live in can make this either impossible, or
alternatively, a great and realistic option. NeighborhoodScout's analysis
revealed that the E Iowa Ave / S Lincoln St neighborhood is a fantastic
option for bicycle commuters, as 6.1% of commuters here do ride
their bikes to and from work on a daily basis. This is a higher amount
than we found in 98.2% of the neighborhoods in America.
Also, a unique way of commuting is simply not to. And in the E Iowa Ave / S Lincoln St
neighborhood, analysis shows that 12.5% of the residents work
from home, avoiding a commute altogether. This may not seem like a large number,
but it is a higher proportion of people working from home than is found in
96.8% of the neighborhoods in the United States.
One thing NeighborhoodScout's research reveals is that the wealthier and/or
more isolated the neighborhood, the greater the proportion of residents who
choose to work from home.
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 E Iowa Ave / S Lincoln St neighborhood: a neighborhood in which more
"urban sophisticates" live than 97.8% 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, E Iowa Ave / S Lincoln St has the amazing distinction of housing more same
sex couples living together than 97.4% of neighborhoods
in the U.S. If you are seeking such a neighborhood, NeighborhoodScout's
analysis shows that this is one place that you should consider.
Also, the rate of college educated adults in the E Iowa Ave / S Lincoln St neighborhood
is a unique characteristic of the neighborhood. 69.4% of
adults here have received at least a 4-year bachelor's degree, compared to
the average neighborhood in America, which has 22.6% of the adults with a
bachelor's degree. The rate here is higher than NeighborhoodScout found in
96.2% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
