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.

African ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 15.6% of
this neighborhood's residents have African ancestry.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Superior Ave / Lakeview Rd 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 36.7%, which is higher than 96.5% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
