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
Of note is NeighborhoodScout's research finding that the
Ellis U / N Desplaines St neighborhood has some of the lowest rates of children
living in poverty of any neighborhood in the United States. In a nation
where approximately 1 in 4 children are living in poverty, the

degree. This is a higher rate than NeighborhoodScout found in 99.5%
of U.S. neighborhoods. In this way, this neighborhood truly stands out.
Also, one of the most interesting things about the Ellis U / N Desplaines St

households here made up of people living alone, NeighborhoodScout's research
reveals that this is a larger proportion of people living alone than in
98.4% of the neighborhoods in America.
Finally, 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 Ellis U / N Desplaines St neighborhood: a neighborhood in which more
"urban sophisticates" live than 97.1% 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 young, single professionals.
