N Drake Rd / Ravine Rd is a suburban neighborhood (based on population density) located in Kalamazoo, Michigan.

N Drake Rd / Ravine Rd 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 townhomes. Most of the residential real estate is renter occupied. Many of the residences in the N Drake Rd / Ravine Rd neighborhood are established but not old, having been built between 1970 and 1999. A number of residences were also built between 2000 and the present.

N Drake Rd / Ravine Rd has a 12.3% vacancy rate, which is well above average compared to other U.S. neighborhoods (higher than 65.7% of American neighborhoods). Most vacant housing here is vacant year round. This could either signal that there is a weak demand for real estate in the neighborhood or that large amount of new housing has been built and not yet occupied. Either way, if you live here, you may find many of the homes or apartments are 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: People

NeighborhoodScout's analysis shows that the N Drake Rd / Ravine Rd neighborhood has a greater concentration of residents currently enrolled in college than 98.1% of the neighborhoods in the U.S. With 25.0% of the population here attending college, this is very much a college-focused neighborhood.

In addition, one of the most interesting things about the N Drake Rd / Ravine Rd neighborhood is that it has a greater concentration of residents who live alone than most all neighborhoods in America. With 48.6% 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 96.4% of the neighborhoods in America.

Notable & Unique: Real Estate

One of the really unique and interesting things about the look and setting of the N Drake Rd / Ravine Rd neighborhood is that it is almost entirely dominated by large apartment buildings, such as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments. 81.7% 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 97.4% of all neighborhoods in America.

In addition, the N Drake Rd / Ravine Rd 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 86.9% 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.

Furthermore, renter-occupied real estate is dominant in the N Drake Rd / Ravine Rd neighborhood. The percentage of rental real estate here, according to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, is 88.7%, which is higher than 96.8% 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.

Notable & Unique: Diversity

Did you know that the N Drake Rd / Ravine Rd neighborhood has more Dutch and Arab ancestry people living in it than nearly any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 9.5% of this neighborhood's residents have Dutch ancestry and 5.1% have Arab ancestry.

N Drake Rd / Ravine Rd is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 5.5% of its residents five years old and above primarily speak African languages at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher 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, 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 N Drake Rd / Ravine Rd neighborhood, a greater proportion of the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is found in 96.6% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood, more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.


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 N Drake Rd / Ravine Rd neighborhood in Kalamazoo are low income, making it among the lowest income neighborhoods in America. NeighborhoodScout's research shows that this neighborhood has an income lower than 92.2% of U.S. neighborhoods. With 33.8% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 80.1% of U.S. neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

A neighborhood is far different if it is dominated by enlisted military personnel rather than people who earn their living by farming. It is also different if most of the neighbors are clerical support or managers. What is wonderful is the sheer diversity of neighborhoods, allowing you to find the type that fits your lifestyle and aspirations.

In the N Drake Rd / Ravine Rd neighborhood, 43.1% 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 36.6% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations (12.2%), and 8.0% in manufacturing and laborer occupations.

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 N Drake Rd / Ravine Rd neighborhood is English, spoken by 80.0% of households. Other important languages spoken here include African languages, Spanish, Polish and Arabic.

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 N Drake Rd / Ravine Rd neighborhood in Kalamazoo, MI, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as German (13.3%). There are also a number of people of Dutch ancestry (9.5%), and residents who report English roots (9.4%), and some of the residents are also of Irish ancestry (9.4%), along with some Asian ancestry residents (8.2%), among others. In addition, 18.7% of the residents of this neighborhood were born in another country.

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 N Drake Rd / Ravine Rd neighborhood spend between 15 and 30 minutes commuting one-way to work (58.6% of working residents), which is shorter than the time spent commuting to work for most Americans.

Here most residents (78.2%) drive alone in a private automobile to get to work. In addition, quite a number also carpool with coworkers, friends, or neighbors to get to work (13.0%) and 6.2% of residents also ride the bus 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.
