Many things matter about a neighborhood, but the first thing most people notice
is the way a neighborhood looks and its particular character. For example, one
might notice whether the buildings all date from a certain time period or whether
shop signs are in multiple languages. This particular neighborhood in Naperville,
the 75th St / Book Rd neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the 75th St / Book Rd neighborhood has more
Asian and Brazilian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 28.0% of
this neighborhood's residents have Asian ancestry and 0.7% have Brazilian ancestry.
75th St / Book Rd is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 2.3% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Gujarati, which is native to the Indian state of Gujarat, at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 98.9% of the neighborhoods in America.

are wealthy and educated executives. They own stately
homes that tend to maintain high real estate appreciation rates. Their
upper-level careers keep them busy, but allow them to live comfortably.

in this neighborhood, rated as an executive lifestyle
"best choice" neighborhood for Illinois by NeighborhoodScout's analysis,
which rated it as better for executive lifestyles than 97.1%
of the neighborhoods in Illinois.
In addition to being an excellent choice for highly educated executives, this
neighborhood is also a very good choice for urban sophisticates and families with school-aged children.
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 4.6% of America's neighborhoods are wealthier than the
75th St / Book Rd 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 75th St / Book Rd neighborhood, where 31.0% 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 95.1%
of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate

What you'll sense when you look around or drive the streets of this neighborhood is that many of the residences look the same because of this similarity of age. In fact, 92.1% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
