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
neighborhood. Equally important is the rate of people, particularly children,
who live below the federal poverty line. In some wealthy gated communities,
the areas immediately surrounding can have high rates of childhood poverty,
which indicates other social issues. NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry
Culture is the shared learned behavior of peoples. Undeniably, different ethnicities
and ancestries have different cultural traditions, and as a result, neighborhoods
with concentrations of residents of one or another ethnicities or ancestries
will express those cultures. It is what makes the North End in Boston so fun
to visit for the Italian restaurants, bakeries, culture, and charm, and similarly,
why people enjoy visiting Chinatown in San Francisco.
