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: Length of Commute

Whether walking, biking, riding, or driving, the length of one's commute is an important factor for one's quality of life. The W 34th St / Richton Rd neighborhood stands out for its commute length, according to NeighborhoodScout's analysis. Long commutes can be brutal. They take time, money, and energy, leaving less of you for yourself and your family. The residents of the W 34th St / Richton Rd neighborhood unfortunately have the distinction of having, on average, a longer commute than most any neighborhood in America. 15.0% of commuters here travel more than one hour just one-way to work. That is more than two hours per day. This percentage with two-hour + round-trip commutes is higher than NeighborhoodScout found in 99.3% of all neighborhoods in America.

Notable & Unique: People

One of the most interesting things about the W 34th St / Richton Rd neighborhood is that it has a greater concentration of residents who live alone than most all neighborhoods in America. With 52.3% of the households here made up of people living alone, NeighborhoodScout's research reveals that this is a larger proportion of people living alone than in 97.8% of the neighborhoods in America.

In addition, an extraordinary 12.9% of the residents of the W 34th St / Richton Rd neighborhood are currently enrolled in college. This is such a large part of life in this neighborhood that the neighborhood changes a great deal with the change of semesters and is far quieter during the summer when many students are away.

Also, with a nice mix of college students, safety from crime, and decent walkability, the W 34th St / Richton Rd neighborhood rates highly as a college student friendly place to live, and one that college students and their parents may want to consider. NeighborhoodScout's analysis shows that it rates more highly for a good place for college students to live than 87.7% of the neighborhoods in IL. This often also means that the area has certain amenities and services geared towards college students, from undergraduates to graduate students.

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, but simultaneously it can produce a loss of intimacy with one's surroundings 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 W 34th St / Richton Rd neighborhood, a greater proportion of the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is found in 96.5% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood, more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.

Notable & Unique: Real Estate

One of the really unique and interesting things about the look and setting of the W 34th St / Richton Rd neighborhood is that it is almost entirely dominated by large apartment buildings, such as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments. 70.1% of the residential real estate here is classified as such. This puts this neighborhood on the map as having a higher proportion of large apartment buildings than 95.8% of all 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 15.9% of the W 34th St / Richton Rd neighborhood's commuters ride the train to and from work each day, which is more than we found in 95.7% of America's neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Diversity

W 34th St / Richton Rd is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 2.3% of its residents five years old and above primarily speak French at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher than 96.6% of the neighborhoods in America.


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 W 34th St / Richton Rd neighborhood in Steger are lower-middle income, making it a below average income neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's research shows that this neighborhood has an income lower than 66.2% of U.S. neighborhoods. With 41.9% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 84.7% of U.S. neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

What we choose to do for a living reflects who we are. Each neighborhood has a different mix of occupations represented, and together these tell you about the neighborhood and help you understand if this neighborhood may fit your lifestyle.

In the W 34th St / Richton Rd neighborhood, 31.6% of the working population is employed in executive, management, and professional occupations. 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 24.0% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations (23.3%), and 21.2% in manufacturing and laborer occupations.

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Culture is shared learned behavior. We learn it from our parents, their parents, our houses of worship, and much of our culture – our learned behavior – comes from our ancestors. That is why ancestry and ethnicity can be so interesting and important to understand: places with concentrations of people of one or more ancestries often express those shared learned behaviors and this gives each neighborhood its own culture. Even different neighborhoods in the same city can have drastically different cultures.

In the W 34th St / Richton Rd neighborhood in Steger, IL, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Sub-Saharan African (12.5%). There are also a number of people of African ancestry (10.9%), and residents who report Mexican roots (6.4%), and some of the residents are also of German ancestry (4.6%), along with some Polish ancestry residents (3.2%), 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 W 34th St / Richton Rd neighborhood is English, spoken by 91.1% of households. Other important languages spoken here include Spanish and French.

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 W 34th St / Richton Rd neighborhood spend between 45 minutes and one hour commuting one-way to work (27.0% of working residents), longer and tougher than most commutes in America.

Here most residents (62.8%) drive alone in a private automobile to get to work. In addition, quite a number also take the train to get to work (15.9%) and 13.7% of residents also carpool with coworkers, friends, or neighbors for their daily commute. In a neighborhood like this, as in most of the nation, many residents find owning a car useful for getting to work.
