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 Hyde Park East neighborhood in Chicago are lower-middle income, making it a below average income neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's research shows that this neighborhood has an income lower than 65.2% of U.S. neighborhoods. With 73.1% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 98.9% of U.S. neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

The old saying "you are what you eat" is true. But it is also true that you are what you do for a living. The types of occupations your neighbors have shape their character, and together as a group, their collective occupations shape the culture of a place.

In the Hyde Park East neighborhood, 71.7% of the working population is employed in executive, management, and professional occupations.

The most common language spoken in the Hyde Park East neighborhood is English, spoken by 81.1% of households. Other important languages spoken here include African languages, French and Spanish.

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 Hyde Park East neighborhood in Chicago, IL, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Haitian (16.5%). There are also a number of people of German ancestry (11.5%), and residents who report Asian roots (10.1%), and some of the residents are also of Irish ancestry (8.6%), along with some English ancestry residents (4.2%), among others. In addition, 18.3% of the residents of this neighborhood were born in another country.

Getting to Work

How you get to work – car, bus, train or other means – and how much of your day it takes to do so is a large quality of life and financial issue. Especially with gasoline prices rising and expected to continue doing so, the length and means of one's commute can be a financial burden. Some neighborhoods are physically located so that many residents have to drive in their own car, others are set up so many walk to work, or can take a train, bus, or bike. The greatest number of commuters in Hyde Park East neighborhood spend between 30 and 45 minutes commuting one-way to work (32.4% of working residents), which is at or a bit above the average length of a commute across all U.S. neighborhoods.

Here most residents (31.7%) ride the bus to get to work. In addition, quite a number also drive alone in a private automobile to get to work (26.9%) and 17.1% of residents also hop out the door and walk to work for their daily commute. The bus provides a valuable service in the Hyde Park East neighborhood of Chicago by getting a lot of residents to and from work daily, reducing the costs of commuting and reducing some congestion on the roads as well.
