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
The Superior Ave / E 79th St neighborhood stands out for having an
average per capita income lower than 98.6% of the neighborhoods
in the United States.
Also of note, 72.2% of the children in this area
live in poverty; an extraordinarily high percentage compared to other
neighborhoods in the nation. In a nation where approximately one in
four children grows up in poverty, this neighborhood stands out for
the depth of the problem manifested here.
In addition, single parenting is hard. But you don't have to tell the
Superior Ave / E 79th St neighborhood about it; they already know. 20.1%
of this neighborhood's households are run by single mothers, which is a
higher concentration than NeighborhoodScout found in 96.2%
of American neighborhoods. Further NeighborhoodScout research showed strong
statistical correlations among high rates of children living in single
parent households, and neighborhood crime, particularly violent crime,
neighborhood poverty, and, importantly, the percentage of low weight births
and rates of infant mortality.
Also, the Superior Ave / E 79th St neighborhood is unique for having just
5.6% of adults here having earned a bachelor's degree.
This is a lower rate of college graduates than NeighborhoodScout found
in 95.1% of America's neighborhoods.
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 Superior Ave / E 79th St
neighborhood, they truly stand out. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis
identifies this neighborhood as having a higher percentage of sales and
service workers than 97.6% of all American neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
In the Superior Ave / E 79th St neighborhood, carpooling is still a popular
way to get to and from work. NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals that
23.4% of commuters carpool here, which is more than in
97.5% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Also, 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 Superior Ave / E 79th St neighborhood is a fantastic
option for bicycle commuters, as 4.3% of commuters here do ride
their bikes to and from work on a daily basis. This is a higher amount
than we found in 96.7% of the neighborhoods in America.
Finally, more people ride the bus in this neighborhood each day to get to work
than 96.0% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Superior Ave / E 79th St neighborhood, NeighborhoodScout has discovered that much of it is vacant. In resort or second-home vacation areas, this naturally occurs because homes and apartments are seasonally occupied, and empty for a portion of the year. In non-vacation or resort areas, however, this can be an indicator of property abandonment or a weak real estate market. The vacancy rate here is 36.9%, which is higher than 96.6% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
