Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics
When you see a neighborhood for the first time, the most important thing

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.

may be relatively wealthy overall, it is equally important to understand
the rate of people - particularly children - who are living at or below the

a lower average income may actually have a lower childhood poverty rate than
another with a higher average income, and this helps us understand the
conditions and character of a neighborhood.

and ancestries have different cultural traditions, and as a result, neighborhoods

to visit for the Italian restaurants, bakeries, culture, and charm, and similarly,
why people enjoy visiting Chinatown in San Francisco.
