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 Schaumburg,
the E Algonquin Rd / Quentin neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.

Asian and Croatian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 43.1% of

than 99.0% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
The freedom of moving to new places versus the comfort of home. How much
and how often people move not only can create diverse and worldly neighborhoods,

and a lack of connectedness to one's neighbors. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive
research has identified this neighborhood as unique with regard to the
transience of its populace.
In the E Algonquin Rd / Quentin neighborhood, a greater proportion of
