Sheridan Rd / D St is an urban neighborhood (based on population density) located in North Chicago, Illinois.

Sheridan Rd / D St real estate is primarily made up of medium sized (three or four bedroom) to large (four, five or more bedroom) single-family homes and townhomes. Most of the residential real estate is renter occupied. Many of the residences in the Sheridan Rd / D St 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 Sheridan Rd / D St. The current real estate vacancy rate here is 24.4%. This is higher than the rate of vacancies in 90.6% of all U.S. neighborhoods. In addition, most vacant housing here is vacant year round.

If you live here, you may find that a number of buildings in your neighborhood are actually empty.

Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

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: Occupations

With 87.7% of employed workers living in the Sheridan Rd / D St neighborhood active in the military, this neighborhood has the distinction of having a higher proportion of people in the military than 100.0% of American neighborhoods. This is a major shaper of the neighborhood's culture and character.

Furthermore, there are more people living in the Sheridan Rd / D St neighborhood employed as sales and service workers (21.0%) than almost any neighborhood in the country. From fast-food service workers to major sales accounts, sales and service workers make up the largest proportion of our national employment picture. But despite that size and importance nationally, this neighborhood still stands out as unique due to the dominance of people living here who work in such occupations.

Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation

More people in Sheridan Rd / D St choose to walk to work each day (93.1%) than almost any neighborhood in America. If you are attracted to the idea of being able to walk to work, this neighborhood could be a good choice.

Also, a unique way of commuting is simply not to. And in the Sheridan Rd / D St neighborhood, analysis shows that 24.7% of the residents work from home, avoiding a commute altogether. This may not seem like a large number, but it is a higher proportion of people working from home than is found in 99.8% of the neighborhoods in the United States. One thing NeighborhoodScout's research reveals is that the wealthier and/or more isolated the neighborhood, the greater the proportion of residents who choose to work from home.

Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability

Do you like to be surrounded by people from all over the country or world, with different perspectives and life experiences? Or do you instead prefer to be in a neighborhood where most residents have lived there for a long time, creating a sense of cohesiveness? NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals that this neighborhood stands out among American neighborhoods for the uniqueness of the mobility of its residents. In the Sheridan Rd / D St neighborhood, a greater proportion of the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is found in 99.9% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood, more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.

Notable & Unique: Length of Commute

The Sheridan Rd / D St neighborhood stands out for its commute length, according to NeighborhoodScout's analysis.

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 Sheridan Rd / D St neighborhood in North Chicago are middle-income, making it a moderate income neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals that this neighborhood has a higher income than 52.8% of the neighborhoods in America. With 51.1% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 91.3% of U.S. neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

The old saying "you are what you eat" is true. But it is also true that you are what you do for a living. The types of occupations your neighbors have shape their character, and together as a group, their collective occupations shape the culture of a place.

In the Sheridan Rd / D St neighborhood, 87.7% of the working population is employed in the military. 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 79.0% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in executive, management, and professional occupations (10.3%), and 9.6% in government jobs, whether they are in local, state, or federal positions.

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Boston's Beacon Hill blue-blood streets, Brooklyn's Orthodox Jewish enclaves, Los Angeles' Persian neighborhoods. Each has its own culture derived primarily from the ancestries and culture of the residents who call these neighborhoods home. Likewise, each neighborhood in America has its own culture – some more unique than others – based on lifestyle, occupations, the types of households – and importantly – on the ethnicities and ancestries of the people who live in the neighborhood. Understanding where people came from, who their grandparents or great-grandparents were, can help you understand how a neighborhood is today.

In the Sheridan Rd / D St neighborhood in North Chicago, IL, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as German (20.0%). There are also a number of people of Irish ancestry (13.7%), and residents who report Mexican roots (7.3%), and some of the residents are also of English ancestry (5.1%), along with some Asian ancestry residents (5.0%), among others.

The Neighbors: Languages

The languages spoken by people in this neighborhood are diverse. These are tabulated as the languages people preferentially speak when they are at home with their families. The most common language spoken in the Sheridan Rd / D St neighborhood is English, spoken by 80.3% of households. Other important languages spoken here include Spanish and Tagalog (the first language of the Philippine region).

Getting to Work

How you get to work – car, bus, train or other means – and how much of your day it takes to do so is a large quality of life and financial issue. Especially with gasoline prices rising and expected to continue doing so, the length and means of one's commute can be a financial burden. Some neighborhoods are physically located so that many residents have to drive in their own car, others are set up so many walk to work, or can take a train, bus, or bike. The greatest number of commuters in Sheridan Rd / D St neighborhood spend under 15 minutes commuting one-way to work (82.1% of working residents), one of the shortest commutes across America.

Here most residents (93.1%) hop out the door and walk to work to get to work. This is a special neighborhood for the number of people who walk to work. Combining exercise, low cost, and reduced pollution, plus the chance to see your neighbors, walking to work is fairly uncommon in America but likely to increase as people try to reduce their dependence on automobiles, and this neighborhood offers that opportunity today.
