S Lincoln Ave / W Green St is a densely urban neighborhood (based on population density) located in Urbana, Illinois.

S Lincoln Ave / W Green St real estate is primarily made up of small (studio to two bedroom) to medium sized (three or four bedroom) apartment complexes/high-rise apartments and single-family homes. Most of the residential real estate is renter occupied. Many of the residences in the S Lincoln Ave / W Green St neighborhood are established but not old, having been built between 1970 and 1999.

S Lincoln Ave / W Green St has a 12.4% vacancy rate, which is well above average compared to other U.S. neighborhoods (higher than 65.6% of American neighborhoods). Most vacant housing here is vacant year round.

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: People

One of the unique characteristics of the S Lincoln Ave / W Green St neighborhood revealed by analysis is that the per capita income of residents here is lower than that found in 100.0% of the neighborhoods in America. In a nation where 1 out of every 4 children lives in poverty, the S Lincoln Ave / W Green St neighborhood also stands out as being ranked among the lowest 0.0% of neighborhoods affected by this global issue.

In addition, an extraordinary 88.6% of the residents of the S Lincoln Ave / W Green St 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, the S Lincoln Ave / W Green St neighborhood stands out within Illinois for its college student friendly environment. NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals that this neighborhood is home to a number of college students, is relatively walkable, and above average in safety. In combination, this makes it stand out for a good place for college students to consider. Because a number of college students live here, this neighborhood may be close to a college campus and offer certain amenities nearby geared towards the student body. While it's not an environment for everyone, ambitious scholars can enjoy seasonal excitement between semesters and school breaks, and parents can rest easy knowing that the area has an above average safety rating. For each of these reasons, the neighborhood is rated among the top 6.0% of college-friendly places to live in IL.

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 S Lincoln Ave / W Green 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: Modes of Transportation

More people in S Lincoln Ave / W Green St choose to walk to work each day (64.6%) 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, in the S Lincoln Ave / W Green St neighborhood, many people's commute means walking from the bedroom to the home office. NeighborhoodScout's analysis found that 19.2% of residents worked from home. This may not seem like a large number, but Scout's research shows that this is a higher percentage of people working from home than 99.4% of the neighborhoods in America. Often people who work from home are engaged in the creative or technological economy, such as is found in areas around Boston, and in Silicon Valley. Other times, people may be engaged in other businesses like trading stocks from home, or running a small beauty salon.

Finally, would you like to be able to ride your bike to work? If you are attracted to the idea of getting a little exercise of the two-wheeled type while reducing your carbon footprint, bicycling to work might be the answer. But which neighborhood you live in can make this either impossible, or alternatively, a great and realistic option. NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed that the S Lincoln Ave / W Green St neighborhood is a fantastic option for bicycle commuters, as 6.1% of commuters here do ride their bikes to and from work on a daily basis. This is a higher amount than we found in 98.2% of the neighborhoods in America.

Notable & Unique: Real Estate

Renter-occupied real estate is dominant in the S Lincoln Ave / W Green St neighborhood. The percentage of rental real estate here, according to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, is 98.0%, which is higher than 98.9% of the neighborhoods in America. If you were to buy and live in the property you bought here, you would be almost alone in doing so.

In addition, one of the really unique and interesting things about the look and setting of the S Lincoln Ave / W Green St neighborhood is that it is almost entirely dominated by large apartment buildings, such as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments. 87.5% 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 98.2% of all neighborhoods in America.

Furthermore, the S Lincoln Ave / W Green St neighborhood is very unique in that it has one of the highest proportions of one, two, or no bedroom real estate of any neighborhood in America. Most neighborhoods have a mixture of home or apartment sizes from small to large, but here the concentration of studios and other small living spaces is at near-record heights. With 82.1% of the real estate here of this small size, this most assuredly is a notable feature that makes this neighborhood unique, along with just a handful of other neighborhoods in the U.S. that share this characteristic.

Notable & Unique: Length of Commute

Regardless of the means by which residents commute, this neighborhood has a length of commute that is notable. Residents of the S Lincoln Ave / W Green St neighborhood have the pleasure of having one of the shortest commutes to work of any neighborhood in America. 70.5% of the residents have a commute time from home to work (one way) of less than fifteen minutes. This is a higher proportion of residents enjoying a short trip to work than NeighborhoodScout found in 98.4% of U.S. neighborhoods. Less time commuting means more time for other things in life.

Notable & Unique: Occupations

From major sales accounts to fast-food workers, sales and service employees are often the backbone of the local economy. In the S Lincoln Ave / W Green St neighborhood, they truly stand out. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis identifies this neighborhood as having a higher percentage of sales and service workers than 97.7% of all American neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Diversity

Did you know that the S Lincoln Ave / W Green St neighborhood has more Asian and Lithuanian ancestry people living in it than nearly any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 25.7% of this neighborhood's residents have Asian ancestry and 1.1% have Lithuanian ancestry.

S Lincoln Ave / W Green St is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 4.6% of its residents five years old and above primarily speak Korean at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher than 98.7% of the neighborhoods in America.

Notable & Unique: Car Ownership

We Americans love our cars. Not only are they a necessity for most Americans due to the shape of our neighborhoods and the distances between where we live, work, shop, and go to school, but we also fancy them. As a result, most households in America have one, two, or three cars. But NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis shows that the S Lincoln Ave / W Green St neighborhood has a highly unusual pattern of car ownership. 24.5% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in 95.7% of U.S. neighborhoods.


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 S Lincoln Ave / W Green St neighborhood in Urbana are low income, making it among the lowest income neighborhoods in America. NeighborhoodScout's research shows that this neighborhood has an income lower than 100.0% of U.S. neighborhoods. In addition, 0.0% of the children seventeen and under living in this neighborhood are living below the federal poverty line, which is a lower rate of childhood poverty than is found in 100.0% of America'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 S Lincoln Ave / W Green St neighborhood, 45.8% of the working population is employed in sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is executive, management, and professional occupations, with 38.5% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations (13.5%), and 2.2% 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 S Lincoln Ave / W Green St neighborhood in Urbana, IL, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Asian (25.7%). There are also a number of people of German ancestry (11.7%), and residents who report Irish roots (8.9%), and some of the residents are also of Italian ancestry (5.4%), along with some Polish ancestry residents (5.4%), among others. In addition, 18.0% of the residents of this neighborhood were born in another country.

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 S Lincoln Ave / W Green St neighborhood is English, spoken by 70.4% of households. Other important languages spoken here include Chinese, Spanish, Korean and South Asian languages.

Getting to Work

Even if your neighborhood is walkable, you may still have to drive to your place of work. Some neighborhoods are located where many can get to work in just a few minutes, while others are located such that most residents have a long and arduous commute. The greatest number of commuters in S Lincoln Ave / W Green St neighborhood spend under 15 minutes commuting one-way to work (70.5% of working residents), one of the shortest commutes across America.

Here most residents (64.6%) hop out the door and walk to work to get to work. In addition, quite a number also drive alone in a private automobile to get to work (17.5%) and 10.9% of residents also ride the bus for their daily commute. 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.
