The Neighbors: Income
How wealthy a neighborhood is, from very wealthy, to middle income, to low
income is very formative with regard to the personality and character of a

who live below the federal poverty line. In some wealthy gated communities,
the areas immediately surrounding can have high rates of childhood poverty,
