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: 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 Stearns School Rd / Lawson Blvd neighborhood has
a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.
Residents of this neighborhood must really love automobiles. NeighborhoodScout's
Analysis reveals that 22.4% of the households here have four, five,
or more cars. That is more cars per household than in 98.3% of
the neighborhoods in the nation.

Lithuanian and Greek ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 1.4% of
this neighborhood's residents have Lithuanian ancestry and 2.2% have Greek ancestry.
Stearns School Rd / Lawson Blvd is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.3% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Urdu, which is the national language of Pakistan, at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 97.2% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: People
The Stearns School Rd / Lawson Blvd neighborhood is considered a solid choice
for executive lifestyles. NeighborhoodScout's analysis ranks it as
better than 94.9% of Illinois neighborhoods

In fact, according to NeighborhoodScout research, the percentage of residential real estate occupied by its owner is higher here than in 97.9% of neighborhoods in America.
