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
If you're a regular supporter of the arts and enjoy outings to the
theatre, weekend boutique-ing, or even a finely aged wine with dinner,
than you're in good company with the people of the La Grange Village Center
neighborhood. This neighborhood is uniquely immersed with more "urban
sophisticates" than 99.8% of neighborhoods across the
country. The people here truly stand out as a class among their own.
They are an exclusive community characterized by refined tastes,
cultural inclinations, and the means to live well. Urban sophisticates
live a big city lifestyle, whether or not they live in or near a big
city. They are educated executives or managers by week, and serial
patrons of the arts by weekend. If this lifestyle pertains to you,
than you'll certainly feel right at home in the La Grange Village Center
In addition to being an excellent choice for urban sophisticates, this
neighborhood is also a very good choice for families with school-aged children, highly educated executives and college students.
In addition, if you come to know the people here, you will recognize that you're
in the company of one of the wealthiest communities in the nation. In
fact, a mere 2.9% of America's neighborhoods are wealthier than the
La Grange Village Center neighborhood. Real estate here is exceedingly
well-maintained, and similarly, tends to maintain its value over time.
The cars driven are mostly luxury brands like Mercedes, Audi, BMW, and
Lexus. If the public schools aren't up to snuff, the residents of this
neighborhood preferentially send their children to private preparatory
schools. Vacation to Disney? Yes, but equally popular are summers in Europe.
Also, if knowledge is power, then imagine the cumulative power of one neighborhood
where many of the adults have earned an advanced degree, such as a Masters,
law degree, medical degree, or even a Ph.D. This is certainly the case in
the La Grange Village Center neighborhood, where 35.7% have
earned an advanced degree. Compare that to the average neighborhood in
America, where just 8.4% of adults have completed a post-graduate degree,
and you can see why this neighborhood is a stand out. In fact, this neighborhood
has a higher rate of adults with an advanced degree than 97.1%
of the neighborhoods in America.
Finally, astoundingly, NeighborhoodScout's research reveals that this single
neighborhood has a higher concentration of married couples living here
than 96.6% of all U.S. neighborhoods. Whether they have
school-aged children or not, married couples are the rule in the La Grange
Village Center neighborhood. If you are a married couple, you may find many
people here with a similar lifestyle, and perhaps common interests. But if
you are single, you might not find many other singles here.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the La Grange Village Center neighborhood has more
Irish and Polish ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 29.0% of
this neighborhood's residents have Irish ancestry and 15.1% have Polish ancestry.
La Grange Village Center is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 0.9% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Polish at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 95.4% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
If you like to ride the train to work, this neighborhood may be for you.
NeighborhoodScout's research revealed that 15.4% of the La Grange
Village Center neighborhood's commuters ride the train to and from work each
day, which is more than we found in 95.6% of America's
