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
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: 63.5%. This
is a higher percent living alone than we found in 99.5% 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.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
The N Sheridan Rd / W Lunt Ave neighborhood is very densely populated compared to most U.S. neighborhoods. In fact, with 52,414 persons per square mile in the neighborhood, it is more packed with people than 98.7% of the nation's neighborhoods. Even if you drive or take transit to your place of employment, many
people enjoy being able to walk in their neighborhood. What many people
don't realize is that most of America's premier vacation locations are
also very walkable. The N Sheridan Rd / W Lunt Ave neighborhood is among
the top 5% of American neighborhoods in terms of walkability.
In addition, the N Sheridan Rd / W Lunt 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 92.3% 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, one of the really unique and interesting things about the look and setting of the N Sheridan Rd / W Lunt Ave neighborhood is that it is almost entirely dominated by large apartment buildings, such as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments. 87.8% 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 98.3% of all neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the N Sheridan Rd / W Lunt Ave neighborhood has more
Sub-Saharan African and Romanian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 9.1% of
this neighborhood's residents have Sub-Saharan African ancestry and 1.2% have Romanian ancestry.
N Sheridan Rd / W Lunt Ave is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 8.3% 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.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
In the N Sheridan Rd / W Lunt Ave neighborhood, 34.8% of people
ride the train to work each day. This is a very high percentage compared
to most places. In fact, NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals that this
is a higher level of train ridership than in 97.8% of the
neighborhoods in America.
Also, more people ride the bus in this neighborhood each day to get to work
than 97.6% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Car Ownership
We Americans love our cars. Not only are they a necessity for most Americans
due to the shape of our neighborhoods and the distances between where we
live, work, shop, and go to school, but we also fancy them. As a result,
most households in America have one, two, or three cars. But NeighborhoodScout's
exclusive analysis shows that the N Sheridan Rd / W Lunt Ave neighborhood has
a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.
31.9% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at
all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
97.0% of U.S. neighborhoods.
