W Hollywood Ave / N Kenmore Ave is a densely urban neighborhood (based on population density) located in Chicago, Illinois.

W Hollywood Ave / N Kenmore Ave real estate is primarily made up of small (studio to two bedroom) to medium sized (three or four bedroom) apartment complexes/high-rise apartments and small apartment buildings. Most of the residential real estate is renter occupied. Many of the residences in the W Hollywood Ave / N Kenmore Ave neighborhood are relatively historic, built no later than 1939, and in some cases, quite a bit earlier. A number of residences were also built between 1940 and 1969.

W Hollywood Ave / N Kenmore Ave has a 17.2% vacancy rate, which is well above average compared to other U.S. neighborhoods (higher than 79.9% of American neighborhoods). Most vacant housing here is vacant year round. This could either signal that there is a weak demand for real estate in the neighborhood or that large amount of new housing has been built and not yet occupied. Either way, if you live here, you may find many of the homes or apartments are empty.

Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

Many things matter about a neighborhood, but the first thing most people notice is the way a neighborhood looks and its particular character. For example, one might notice whether the buildings all date from a certain time period or whether shop signs are in multiple languages. This particular neighborhood in Chicago, the W Hollywood Ave / N Kenmore Ave neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.

In fact, 18.7% of this neighborhood's residents have Sub-Saharan African ancestry and 2.2% have Yugoslav ancestry.

W Hollywood Ave / N Kenmore Ave is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 8.2% of its residents five years old and above primarily speak African languages at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher than 99.5% of the neighborhoods in America.

Also, if you like to ride the train to work, this neighborhood may be for you. NeighborhoodScout's research revealed that 23.3% of the W Hollywood Ave / N Kenmore Ave neighborhood's commuters ride the train to and from work each day, which is more than we found in 96.8% of America's neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Real Estate

One of the really unique and interesting things about the look and setting of the W Hollywood Ave / N Kenmore Ave neighborhood is that it is almost entirely dominated by large apartment buildings, such as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments. 95.1% of the residential real estate here is classified as such. This puts this neighborhood on the map as having a higher proportion of large apartment buildings than 99.2% of all neighborhoods in America.

In addition, the W Hollywood Ave / N Kenmore 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 95.2% 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.

Furthermore, the W Hollywood Ave / N Kenmore Ave neighborhood is very densely populated compared to most U.S. neighborhoods. In fact, with 46,776 persons per square mile in the neighborhood, it is more packed with people than 98.4% of the nation's neighborhoods. 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 W Hollywood Ave / N Kenmore Ave neighborhood is one of the most walkable neighborhoods in America.

Also of note, 90.0% of the real estate in the W Hollywood Ave / N Kenmore Ave neighborhood is occupied by renters, which is nearly the highest rate of renter occupancy of any neighborhood in America.

Notable & Unique: People

The types of households in a neighborhood can tell a lot about the character and lifestyle of those living here. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals that this neighborhood, above nearly every neighborhood in America, has a greater percentage of its residents living alone: 60.5%. This is a higher percent living alone than we found in 99.2% of all U.S. neighborhoods. Often residents who live alone are new arrivals to an area who are single, and often senior citizens who have lost a spouse.

In addition, neighborhoodScout's analysis shows that the W Hollywood Ave / N Kenmore Ave neighborhood has a greater concentration of residents currently enrolled in college than 95.1% of the neighborhoods in the U.S. With 11.8% of the population here attending college, this is very much a college-focused neighborhood.

Notable & Unique: Car Ownership

American households most often have a car, and regularly they have two or three. But households in the W Hollywood Ave / N Kenmore Ave neighborhood buck this trend. 60.3% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in 99.1% of U.S. neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability

The freedom of moving to new places versus the comfort of home. How much and how often people move not only can create diverse and worldly neighborhoods, but simultaneously it can produce a loss of intimacy with one's surroundings and a lack of connectedness to one's neighbors. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research has identified this neighborhood as unique with regard to the transience of its populace. In the W Hollywood Ave / N Kenmore Ave neighborhood, a greater proportion of the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is found in 95.9% of U.S. Neighborhoods.

The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income

How wealthy a neighborhood is, from very wealthy, to middle income, to low income is very formative with regard to the personality and character of a neighborhood. Equally important is the rate of people, particularly children, who live below the federal poverty line. In some wealthy gated communities, the areas immediately surrounding can have high rates of childhood poverty, which indicates other social issues. NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals both aspects of income and poverty for this neighborhood.

The neighbors in the W Hollywood Ave / N Kenmore Ave neighborhood in Chicago are low income, making it among the lowest income neighborhoods in America. NeighborhoodScout's research shows that this neighborhood has an income lower than 89.3% of U.S. neighborhoods. With 23.7% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 62.9% of U.S. neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

A neighborhood is far different if it is dominated by enlisted military personnel rather than people who earn their living by farming. It is also different if most of the neighbors are clerical support or managers. What is wonderful is the sheer diversity of neighborhoods, allowing you to find the type that fits your lifestyle and aspirations.

In the W Hollywood Ave / N Kenmore Ave neighborhood, 35.8% of the working population is employed in executive, management, and professional occupations.

Other residents here are employed in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations (25.1%), and 6.9% in manufacturing and laborer occupations.

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Culture is the shared learned behavior of peoples. Undeniably, different ethnicities and ancestries have different cultural traditions, and as a result, neighborhoods with concentrations of residents of one or another ethnicities or ancestries will express those cultures. It is what makes the North End in Boston so fun to visit for the Italian restaurants, bakeries, culture, and charm, and similarly, why people enjoy visiting Chinatown in San Francisco.

In the W Hollywood Ave / N Kenmore Ave neighborhood in Chicago, IL, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Sub-Saharan African (18.7%).

Getting to Work
