Newport is a suburban neighborhood (based on population density) located in Granite City, Illinois.

Newport real estate is primarily made up of small (studio to two bedroom) to medium sized (three or four bedroom) single-family homes and apartment complexes/high-rise apartments. Most of the residential real estate is occupied by a mixture of owners and renters. Many of the residences in the Newport neighborhood are older, well-established, built between 1940 and 1969. A number of residences were also built before 1940.

Vacant apartments or homes are a major fact of life in Newport. The current real estate vacancy rate here is 18.0%. This is higher than the rate of vacancies in 81.6% of all U.S. neighborhoods. In addition, most vacant housing here is vacant year round. This can sometimes be the case in neighborhoods dominated by new construction that is not yet occupied. But often neighborhoods with vacancy rates this high are places that can be plagued by a protracted vacancy problem. If you live here, you may find that a number of buildings in your neighborhood are actually empty.

The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income

There are two complementary measures for understanding the income of a neighborhood's residents: the average and the extremes. While a neighborhood may be relatively wealthy overall, it is equally important to understand the rate of people - particularly children - who are living at or below the federal poverty line, which is extremely low income. Some neighborhoods with a lower average income may actually have a lower childhood poverty rate than another with a higher average income, and this helps us understand the conditions and character of a neighborhood.

The neighbors in the Newport neighborhood in Granite City are low income, making it among the lowest income neighborhoods in America. NeighborhoodScout's research shows that this neighborhood has an income lower than 85.6% of U.S. neighborhoods. With 56.9% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 94.0% of U.S. neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

What we choose to do for a living reflects who we are. Each neighborhood has a different mix of occupations represented, and together these tell you about the neighborhood and help you understand if this neighborhood may fit your lifestyle.

The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants, with 32.1% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in executive, management, and professional occupations (17.7%), and 8.9% in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations.

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Culture is shared learned behavior. We learn it from our parents, their parents, our houses of worship, and much of our culture – our learned behavior – comes from our ancestors. That is why ancestry and ethnicity can be so interesting and important to understand: places with concentrations of people of one or more ancestries often express those shared learned behaviors and this gives each neighborhood its own culture. Even different neighborhoods in the same city can have drastically different cultures.

In the Newport neighborhood in Granite City, IL, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as German (21.5%). There are also a number of people of Irish ancestry (15.3%), and residents who report English roots (9.0%), and some of the residents are also of Mexican ancestry (4.3%), along with some French ancestry residents (4.1%), among others.

Getting to Work

The greatest number of commuters in Newport neighborhood spend between 15 and 30 minutes commuting one-way to work (47.5% of working residents), which is shorter than the time spent commuting to work for most Americans.

Here most residents (88.8%) drive alone in a private automobile to get to work. In addition, quite a number also carpool with coworkers, friends, or neighbors to get to work (8.3%) . In a neighborhood like this, as in most of the nation, many residents find owning a car useful for getting to work.
