New Map Shows Where Working From Home Is On the Rise

Hit the alarm, get dressed, hit the road, walk past the water cooler, socialize and attempt to focus. It doesn't always have to be like this. Some have already rebelled against this scenario, and now we know where they live/work. According to a new interactive map published by DNAinfo, 4.3 percent of the 1.18 million workers in Chicago now work from home. Lakeview clocks in as the most untethered neighborhood, with 4,080 people recorded as remote workers from 2009 to 2013. On its heels are the Near North Side at 3,902, West Town at 3,271, and Lincoln Park at 2,740. Working from home doesn't have to conjure up images of sitting on a couch in pajamas. Technically, it encompasses working from a coffee shop, co-working space or your living room.
