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
One of the unique characteristics of the E 67th St / S Stony Island Ave
neighborhood revealed by analysis is that the per capita income of
residents here is lower than that found in 97.1% of the neighborhoods
Also of note, 61.5% of the children in this area
live in poverty; an extraordinarily high percentage compared to other
neighborhoods in the nation. In a nation where approximately one in
four children grows up in poverty, this neighborhood stands out for
the depth of the problem manifested here.
In addition, whether by choice, divorce, or unplanned pregnancy, single moms may have
the toughest job in the book. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals
that the E 67th St / S Stony Island Ave neighborhood has more single mother
households than 97.0% of the neighborhoods in the U.S.
Often high concentrations of single mother homes can be a strong indicator
of family and social issues such as poverty, high rates of school dropouts,
crime, and other societal problems.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Significantly, 1.0% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Japanese at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 96.4% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
The E 67th St / S Stony Island Ave neighborhood has a greater proportion of
government workers living in it than 96.2% of the neighborhoods
in America, according to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis. This is
a unique feature of this neighborhood, and one that shapes its character.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
Being a walkable neighborhood can help increase property values for the simple reason that people enjoy it and value it. To put it plainly, despite our love affair with the automobile, American's enjoy taking to the streets, sidewalks, paths, and courtyards of a place to get a coffee, relax, and take in the sights and sounds. And, according to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive and first quantitative walkable score index, the E 67th St / S Stony Island Ave neighborhood is one of the most walkable neighborhoods in America.
In addition, renter-occupied real estate is dominant in the E 67th St / S Stony Island Ave neighborhood. The percentage of rental real estate here, according to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, is 85.1%, which is higher than 95.7% of the neighborhoods in America. If you were to buy and live in the property you bought here, you would be almost alone in doing so.
Furthermore, the E 67th St / S Stony Island Ave neighborhood is very unique in that it has one of the highest proportions of one, two, or no bedroom real estate of any neighborhood in America. 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 81.8% 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.
